yarnalong - dishcloths & Romance for Dummies

Back to basics here this week with how-to book and some dishcloths:

The book is old (2005, maybe?) and there are a few bits of anachronistic advice (like that you might want to get a separate phone line for your email, or that you might want to get a computer model that includes a CD drive so that you can listen to music), but otherwise this is a really solid read so far. It's reminding me of some things I already knew and teaching me more that I didn't.

Oh! I forgot the best anachronism of all! It says that paranormal romances are a hard sell. :D Pre-Twilight, anyone? Not that I'm a fan, but I got a good chuckle over how quickly - and how severely - trends can change.

And the dishcloths will be thrown on the constantly diminishing supply. We're hard on our cleaning supplies around here!

More Yarnalong goodness here.

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell

That book sounds so great! I don't even want to write a Romance Novel, but I would read that book.

As someone who is addicted to a good cheesy romance novel, this book sounds really interesting.
