Blogging 4 Books is the Opposite of Dead....

aka, LIVE!

We remember with fondness The Zero Boss, because he made it up, and the link should route you to his new venture, Blogging Baby.

How to play: You blog on a chosen topic. You post a link to your blog entry in the comments below this entry. B4B closes at MIDNIGHT your time next Monday.

If you have no blog, you write the essay and cut and paste it (no attachments please) into an email to Ann Fitten (the Bloggess behind Edgy Mama) and ask her sweetly to host it for you.

Your special guest blogger this month is Betsy, a single parent in Portland whose optimistic and amusing blog is calledMy Whim is Law. She will narrow the entries down to seven.

If you are one of the seven finalists, your entry will be read by author M.J. Rose. You remember her VID LIT, right? We just watched it a week or two ago. If you missed it, you can give it a peep by clicking this link. She will pick first, second and third place. First place gets a signed first edition of her new book, The Delilah Complex the second in her Internationally bestselling suspense series starring sex therapist Dr. Morgan Snow.


And now, THE TOPIC! As usual your topic relates to the book...

The Deliah Complex features The Scarlet Society, a secret club of twelve powerful and sexually adventurous women. But when a photograph of the body of one of the men they're recruited to dominate -- strapped to a gurney, the number 1 inked on the sole of his foot -- is sent to the New York Times, they are shocked and frightened. Unable to cope with the tragedy, the women turn to Dr. Morgan Snow. But what starts out as grief counseling quickly becomes a murder investigation...

So, This months topics is CLUBS. Take that any way you like it. Every been a member of one? Ever wanted to be a member of one and not? Every gone dancing in one and discovered pink martinis are delicious and around four AM found yourself slurring out your life story to some guy named "DJ E.Q." who is a great dancer AND doesn't try to get you to go home with him, not that you would, but it's just nice not to be PRESSURED, you know, and maybe this is a REALLY NICE GUY like your mom said you would NEVER meet in a club, and all his nice friends stop by for a sec to say HI and stuff, so he's all POPULAR and CHARMING, and then suddenly you realize this is because he is a drug dealer and probably you should never be allowed out of your dorm without serious supervision? Oh wait, was that my twenties riding by? Um, to get back on track, Ever played clubs-the-card-game? Bet on the Queen of? Ever hit a baby seal with one?

The topic is...CLUBS! GO!

"Ever hit a baby seal with one?"

Ok, who is more sick - you for writing that or me for letting out a huge snort of laughter when I read it?

Don't answer that.

I think I might actually be able to come up with something for this month's B4B topic! ~~~whirl~~~

(NOT about baby seals though, I swear!)
