Well…. That took WAY longer than I anticipated.I just scrolled through my New Fiction Release page for the month of July and browsed the 900+ fiction titles releasing this month! I was updating covers where possible and inserting the plots if they were missing. An unfortunate quirk of the programming for the database is that if the description has text like “description coming soon” the program will not look for a missing synopsis- cause there’s something there! I want minions to do the nit-picky stuff for me. Little yellow ones like in Despicable Me (one of my favorite animated movies) If I had minions they could make sure nothing was missing from the database and I could just enjoy viewing all the new releases and not worry about missing info. Oh! I am extremely amused at the fact that many of the series romance books needed the plots added to the books page and it reminded me of last year… when I was more naive and thought that my brother and I could manually create a list of ALL the new books and he was a good sport and helped me out… Till I decided there must be a programmer who could design something to help me. Anyway, my 20 year old brother saw more clinche covers and read more romance plots than most guys ever will! :) He’s a good sport and has actually read a few romances novels. I think more guys should, honestly
Ummmm…. where was I? Oh! yeah…. July new releases. On the plus side, by my scrolling through all the titles in my database I discovered a few books I am very excited for. Elizabeth Peters is re-releasing some of her romantic suspense/gothic romance books at the end of the month! *squee* I absolutely adore her books and own most, but not all, of them. Take a look if you like romantic suspense and clever dialogue.
