I've found that even good reviews can mess with my muse and me, so I've learned that simply not reading is the only sane way to go. My publisher will occasionally send me reviews to read and I will look at those, but beyond that I see almost none of them. Haters are going to hate, trolls are going to be trolls, there is nothing you can do about them, except not feed them. (less)

No, but it would be totally unfair if Anita was upset with Jean-Claude for one extra woman when she has so many men. Also, I, my husband, our girlfriend, and her husband, are polyamorous, so personally don't have a problem with sharing. (less)

A lot of you have asked me to talk more about Spike and Genevieve, the other half of our fourple. (Actually the term fourple was coined in a conversation with one of Jonathon’s and my ex-boyfriends when we were sharing what was new in our personal lives. Thanks, Nocturne!) You’ve asked for pictures, and more information in general. I spoke in a live Q & A on the fact that they both want t...

“There are wounds that never show on the body that are deeper and more hurtful than anything that bleeds.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Mistral's Kiss

“I will love you always. When this red hair is white, I will still love you. When the smooth softness of youth is replaced by the delicate softness of age, I will still want to touch your skin. When your face is full of the lines of every smile you have ever smiled, of every surprise I have seen flash through your eyes, when every tear you have ever cried has left its mark upon your face,I will treasure you all the more, because I was there to see it all. I will share your life with you, Meredith, and I will love you until the last breath leaves your body or mine.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, A Lick of Frost

“There comes a point when you just love someone. Not because they're good, or bad, or anything really. You just love them. It doesn't mean you'll be together forever. It doesn't mean you won't hurt each other. It just mean you love them. Sometimes in spite of who they are, and sometimes because of who they are. And you know that they love you, sometimes because of who you are, and sometimes in spite of it.”
Laurell K. Hamilton, Incubus Dreams
