It's loading very slow for me as well.

EDIT: By the way, I love the 300-level fantasy titles you've selected(that is, once the page loaded). I need to get on it.

We have books by Faith Hunter, Gail Carriger, and Amanda Downum being reviewed in the very near future.  You'll have to let Steve or I know what you think of those or if they still aren't what you're looking for.  The first is marketed for women, the second is light-hearted comedic fantasy, the third is Amanda's entry into the Epic Fantasy market.

Ooh, those all sound interesting. Sorry for being needy.
If I had any clue, would I be here?

Lies.  She pays so she doesn't have to.

Yes it is loading slowly.  I'm looking into it though.

You know, I noticed the slowness of the site myself, but i figured the internets hated me like usual. I wonder if it is our site, or blogger itself...

Someone make a website for us so we don't have to deal with blogger.

Sigyn--No worries. If these authors don't do it for ya, let us know what you have your eyes on and we will do what we can to review whatever book you choose. It's the least we can do for you since you let us borrow one of your books.

Ah. You're a Friendship Whore.....I wonder--how many people seek your whoring?....Unless that's confidential information and you'd be breaking the Whore Code of Honor by telling us....But really, what whore really cares about the WCH? It's more like guidelines anyway....

Well, you see, the reason I funnel the money through my mom is so if I get audited by the IRS it's harder to trace. It also gives Nick deniability. It works well. And actually in my experience, whores care deeply about the WCH. Work-place pride and all that.

Well, I will defer to your knowledge on this matter. I haven't met enough whores to truly know about their stance on the WCH. Most of the ones I know are like me and think honor is generally lame. But then again, I haven't exactly asked them specifically about whore honor. My bad.

Keep up, I pay through both of them to keep it from being easily traced.

So if I understand this correctly, you give your mom the money, who then gives it to your wife, who then pays Nick? Very wise. The IRS will no doubt not notice such a roundabout way of bribing a person.

Note: *Any sarcasm detected not intended. Seriously.*

I'm pretty sure it's more complicated than that. Steve probably gives his father the money, who gives it to his wife, who gives it to Steve's wife, who gives it to her mother, who gives it to Steve's father-in-law, who gives it to Slamel's father, who gives it to his wife, who gives it to Slamel's housekeeper, who leaves it on the dining room table every week.

Yeah. That's how it goes down. Don't tell the feds.
