Pondering the Nut’s identity (EC v DA)

28 Dec

Ellora's Cave sues Dear AuthorI’ve said before, repeatedly, that I believe that Tina Engler/Jaid Black is behind the Nut aka egg of toxic logic. Earlier, Deidre Saoirse Moen caught a writing tick that supports the notion. However, the Nut does vary the way it expresses itself enough for other observers to be less sure than I am.

So interesting (EC v DA related)

12 Dec

Ellora's Cave sues Dear AuthorI have been vocal here and elsewhere about my opinion (protected speech, yo!) that the twitter Nut and Tina Engler/Jaid Black are one and the same.

Yet another long standing blog shuts down

4 Nov

Novel Thoughts headerI am very, very sad.

For those who don’t know, Romance Reader at Heart, which opened its virtual doors in 2001, has a massive database of reviews, an extensive database of authors and books, many, many, many book lists, timelines, a message board and more.

Something, however, was missing, and just over seven years ago, Romance Reader at Heart opened its blog, Novel Thoughts. The lovely Mad (aka Fatin) rand the blog, mostly by herself. I helped her out for a brief period of time, and latter on lillie did as well.

Yesterday, Mad and lillie announced that Novel Thoughts is shut down immediately.

I will not speculate to their reasons to do so, but it’s always sad to see such a long standing romance blog just…be done, gone. I for one, am going to miss it, because while in lately I haven’t commented much, that doesn’t mean I don’t visit often.

Here’s to you, ladies, with thanks for all the joy and best wishes for the present and future.
