I’ve still seen some comments here – and I thought I’d closed them all but – weird changes with updates happened.

I’VE MOVED TO WWW.TARTSWEET.COM

I hope you’ll join me there! We’ve been rolling along for some time now!

Hi friends! I hadn’t mentioned this here before because I’d hoped you’d followed me over to TartSweet which is my new home on the web. Same thing – different domain.

Anyway, Social Media for Social Good is back and it ends tomorrow and there are a TON of giveaways. See? All the giveaways. So many giveaways. And guess what? Odds are GREAT for winning. Comment pledges are over… but you know, that’s ok.

And – if you could find it in your heart to donate – even $1.00, that would be AMAZING. And you know what else? It’s a charitable contribution and thus tax deductible. Win! You can use your credit card, paypal, or a check. It even lets you donate anonymously! Http://www.mycharitywater.org/albtalbs

Thank you! I hope this catches some of you! <3 For those of you who have lost contact – I miss you!!!

Hihi everyone! If you’ve been wondering where I’ve been (because you know there was all this … crap happening…) it’s here!

WWW.TARTSWEET.COM

There are giveaways, new posts, and something I REALLY want to highlight is my third annual charity drive: Social Media for Social Good is back, and it’s going for charity:water this year. (Sorry, I planned it and started it before Sandy happened.) Water Changes Everything. As usual, it’s a comment drive too, so if you can’t afford to donate or whatever, even leaving a comment helps, because people are donating based on the number of comments.

I’m also going to give an ADDITIONAL $25 if 50 readers of bloggers donate – even $1 counts! So please, spend my money! [I'm also in for $300 if 1,000 people comment...]

Also, all the subscription stuff is now sorted out, so I hope you’ll join me at the new site for numerous giveaways, content, and all that good stuff! <3

I really really hope to see you there! Thanks!

Please update your bookmarks and subscriptions – and tell your friends please!

I’VE MOVED

Please check out my very first ever post at the new digs HERE!

Why? I finally bit the bullet and

I did it!!!

Yes, I’ve moved everything to http://www.tartsweet.com/ – it’s still a work in progress and I’ve got a HUGE learning curve, but you know. I wanted to get things done before SMSG 12 starts on the 22nd. :D I hope you’ll join me!

[Comments are disabled because I'm hoping you'll make them at the new digs. Also to keep me from trying to figure out how to transfer more. :X Thanks!]

It’s time for Shelli Stevens’s quarterly post! (Yes, aish! Time flies!) And she’s sharing breaking news with us! Whee!!! (And I’m too lazy and sick to add a bunch of Shelli’s covers right now, so you’ll have to forgive me. They’re hot though. Feel free to go check some out.) 

What is it about a bad boy?

What is it about a bad boy that can draw a gal in? Both in a romance novel, and maybe in real life? Is it the hope that we’ll see these guys redeemed? That they’ll be turned around by one woman, when none before have managed to do it? Maybe they drink too much, smoke, swear, bed hop like it’s an Olympic sport, scowl at tiny kittens…hell, they’re just bad boys. And yet some women flock to them. Again and again. Same bad boy, different guy.

I mean in a novel they can seem all exciting and sexy, but in real life…hmm, sometimes you think you’d just slap the jerk. But then…sometimes not. Sometimes you fall for the guy you absolutely should not, could not, see yourself falling for. Even though there’s all these emotional barricades and warning signs along the way. So what IS it about these guys? Why is it a popular trope in romance novels, and why is it that women in general can’t seem to ‘step away from the bad boy’.

And on that bad boy note… I’m excited to break the news here, on Lime’s blog, about my new upcoming series! I just signed a contract for the first book in my series The McLaughlins (it follows a Scottish family who’s moved to America). Book one is called Good Girl Gone Plaid and should be due out early summer 2013.

Let me know your stance on bad boys, do you like them? Maybe you like them only in novels, or maybe in real life as well? Leave a comment and you’ll be entered to win a $5 gift certificate to Amazon!
