Blog Launches, Secret DVDs and a Time Traveler's Wife

Good to see there was no time-traveling debauchery while I was sans-computer, though how fun would that have been? Alas, I have no IKEA shelves yet so the photo will have to wait, but I'm posting this from my new writing digs and know I can create some hot and damn inspired fiction here.

Be sure to pop over to the 007 blog launch today. Gail Fuller will be chatting up authors Melissa James (Harlequin Romance) and Robyn Grady (Silhouette Desire and Modern Heat) and giveaways abound. Bookmark the site so you can find me there next week. Not sure what I'll be packing as a Bond Girl yet.

Saturday as I was decluttering for painting prep, I found a blog giveaway I have yet to give away. Our last First Line Contest here at the Vortex was such a success, I'm resurrecting it this week. On Wednesday, I'll post a photograph. You post the first line of the story. We'll put them all up to a vote and democracy will choose who wins a classic DVD that's close to my heart.

For now, I'll leave you with the just-released movie trailer for The Time Traveler's Wife. Enjoy!

That movie looks terrific! I didn't read the book and haven't heard anything about the film, but I love the two actors in it. Thanks for the sneak peek!

You had better travel a bit further back before you claim there was no time traveling blog debauchery..didn't anyone tell you about...naw I am not a snitch.

@Todd...sarcasm becomes you. you're back on Wednesday, though ;)

@Robin...Audrey Niffenegger is truly gifted with prose. You'd be doing yourself a disservice not to read her poetic style

@walkingman...I should have known you'd be the ringleader. If I knew what my Bond girl weapon of choice was, I'd wield it :)

Vesper...I honestly don't know where that came from but it sounds good, doesn't it?

My personal "Bond Weapon" is extremely pungent bad breath, kills instantly. I wouldn't suggest that you let Q give you that one.

For you InkyLuv I think the killer butt would be the best. I'm sure you could acquire and use it with very little effort and training.

I remember when the book started out as self-published and then was picked up. Miracles do happen. I want to see this movie!
