More Harlequin  
jackiekessler answers questions people have about the Harlequin bruhaha and everyone's response to it. In case any of those questions might be your questions.

Kudos to the Mystery Writers of America, and the Science Fiction Writers of America for both following in the RWA's footsteps, here. While I'm sure Harlequin is most affected by the RWA's response, the show of solidarity is nice.

I feel bad for all the Harlequin authors out there. What must they be feeling about their publisher right now? Confused, hurt, angry? I'm sure the response of the publishing world is very dismaying as well. The way I see it, RWA and others didn't have a choice.

And no, Harlequin removing their name from the imprint isn't nearly enough. Read Jackie's excellent post if you wonder why.

That post made me feel a bit like an idiot, because it was the first time I realized that "Harlequin" is an actual publisher rather than "harlequin" being a general description for romance novels. *facepalm*

Last week I also found out that people tailgate around American football stadiums even when they don't have tickets to the game itself. This seems to be my season for learning perfectly obvious stuff that I have somehow been missing for YEARS.
