Bribes

Theodosia is sitting on the windowsill, waiting for me...

To finish my novel.

Sigh.

Some of us bribe ourselves with chocolate.
Some of us need shoes.

But an author must always bribe herself with books.

Head down and back to work...


(Psst. If you missed our great interview with author R.L. LaFevers, revisit the SBBT here!

Theodosia is on my bookshelf, waiting for me to finish my report to the state department. She's been staring at me for over a week, and I am weakening! Must get report done ...

Well, at least you have a really wonderful treat waiting! It was just as much fun as the first one.

Oh, dang! I can hardly wait to read it. I don't have a copy yet--will have to check the library. I was lucky enough to get a review copy for the Cybils last year--this year I'm in a different category, though.

So glad to know someone else works on the bribe system too. Hmm. Perhaps Aretha bribes herself with hats.

Nah.

I bribe myself with books and chocolate and coffee, help!

I totally get bribing yourself with a great book. I hope it's worth it. Something tells me it will be.

This is one of those book covers that immediately entices me.
