I have read a couple of articles over the last few days (probably a week or so after everyone else! Late to the party or what??) about why women read romance and a documentary mentioned on the Smart Bitches site. What caught my attention was the belief held by some that readers want to insert themselves into a story… me, I’m a fly on the wall I think! Then I did a peruse over at Romancing the blog and their insertion post.
Interesting stuff but I am desperate to tell someone to watch Shelter or Beautiful Thing rather than just stick to BBM. Check it out at the following sites. and yeah, insert?? *snort* had me laughing. Puerile much?

Jessica Freely has a post here.
I am also thrilled to see the naked rugby boys got some world wide media attention here. (Saw this at Smart Bitches.) Woot!
Early next week I have an interview to share On Art. Can’t wait!
