Book Blogger Hop #9

book blogger hop


Welcome to the new Book Blogger Hop brought to you by Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer!

If you want schedule next week’s post, click here to find the next prompt question. To submit a question, fill out this form.

What to do:

1. Post on your blog answering this question:

Where do you keep your passwords for all your different sites?   

2. Enter the link to your post in the linky list  (enter your Blog Name and the direct link to your post answering this week’s question. Failure to do so will result in removal of your link).

3. Visit other blogs in the list and comment on their posts. Try to spend some time on the blogs reading other posts and possibly become a new follower. The purpose of the hop is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

Well now, that’s kind of a personal question, isn’t it? Sheesh.

Here’s the thing: I don’t need a place to keep my passwords because I tend to use the same one, just different variations of it. OR I rotate between three specific passwords and use variations of the three.

Typically, this is where I ask you the same question, but for once, this inquiring mind doesn’t want to know. LOL.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Writing Tip Tuesday #25: Stuart Horwitz



Earlier this summer, I had posted another article about beta readers. While I won’t have a need for beta readers, I thought I might add this other post by Stuart Horwitz who answers three questions when it comes to Using Beta Readers to Help You Write Your Best Novel:

Where in the drafting process are beta readers best employed?

To involve beta readers between the second draft and the third draft. At that point the work is strong enough to take a little push-back; you already know some of what you tried that didn’t work, so you aren’t quite so impressionable. You can then remain at your maximum openness when soliciting the honest feedback of your beta readers, and will get the most out of the process.
How many readers should I get, and where do I find them?

I usually recommend between three and seven. If you have less than three, you tend to weight individual feedback more than it may deserve. If you have more than seven, the air traffic control can get a little out of hand. Your beta readers might comprise editors, members of your writing group, friends, or family members. Online writing groups, organizations, and clubs often have critique groups or forums in which you can connect with potential beta readers. [Note: in another post I published about beta readers, the author suggested not using family members, as you might not get the feedback you want from them].

 What kinds of specific questions can I ask my beta readers so I will most benefit from this experience?

I recommend ten specific questions. [But if you read this other post, you can get some ideas on what questions to ask]


So, do you use beta readers? Why or why not? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Wet Panty Society – A Little Trivia About: John Hennigan (aka John Morrison)

I wish there had been more personal info on this dude, but there wasn’t. So, for the trivia bits is going to be all about wrestling.

~ As ’Johnny Nitro', he was the pretty-boy apprentice to Eric Bischoff on WWE Raw.

~ Trademark move: Standing Shooting Star Press

When you’re an apprentice in the wrestling world, what does that involve? Are you getting coffee? Picking up dry cleaning? Walking dogs? Cuz honestly, if my apprentice looked this dude, there would be no work getting done.

No work at all.

He’d be put to work doing something…else.

Currently Reading: Mimi Jean Pamfiloff’s IMMORTAL MATCHMAKERS, INC


It’s been a minute since I’ve posted what I’ve been reading lately. After Camp NaNoWriMo, I went a little bit crazy and was reading up a storm. I was reading so much–and so quickly–that it wouldn’t have been worth it to post what I was reading. Things have slowed a little bit, though, and I’m gonna try it. I’ll be starting this one today.


What are you currently reading? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties.

Writing Tip Tuesday #24: Dave King



When I was writing YA, more often than not, I usually only had two things: the names of the characters and a title. However, I’m writing in a different genre this time and having a series in mind makes it easier because I just plan to use the names of the heroes as the title. But if you’re stumped and need to come up with ideas for a title, Dave King provided several different ways in which to find them in his post “What’s In a Name?” :

  • A one or two sentence summary of your story
  • A list of your main characters
  • A list of locations
  • Ascribe meaning on more than level: J. Box’s Badlands takes place in the actual badlands of North Dakota, but the title also evokes the corruption and danger that are moving into the area with the discovery of oil.
  • Through irony: The Hunger Games puts together two contrary ideas – the misery of hunger and the playfulness of games – in a way that sums up the dystopian society of the novel.
  • A string of similar titles to establish branding: Sue Grafton ’s alphabet books.
  • A string of similar titles in regards to aiming at a unique publishing niche: Scott Turow ’s books are titled with legal terms.
  • The spirit of your story and the atmosphere you created: No actual mockingbirds die in To Kill a Mockingbird, but the book centers around the respect for and protection of innocence that the title represents.
  • Famous quotations that resonate with your story: Barbara Pym ’s Less Than Angels, a reference to the New Testament description of humans as being “a little lower than the angels.”
  • Throw a title party: give your manuscript to a number of friends you trust, then get together and brainstorm.


So, how do you choose a title for your material? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Wet Panty Society – September: John Hennigan (aka John Morrison)


Welcome to another month of hotness, people!

This month’s inductee has been referred to as:

The Honcho of Hotness.

The Ambassador of Abdominals.

The Shaolin Master of Manliness.

But if you’re a fan of wrestling, then you’ll know him as John Morrison.

Welcome to the Wet Panty Society…JOHN HENNIGAN.


Birth Name: John Randall Hennigan

Birth Date: 3 October 1979, Los Angeles, California

Height: 6′

Where You May Have Seen Him: As pro wrestler Johnny Nitro and John Morrison on WWE VELOCITY (2006-2006),  E.C.W (2007-2009),  WWE NXT (2010), WWE SMACKDOWN! (2005-2011), WWE SUPERSTARS (2009-2011), WWF RAW (2004-2011). He was also in a TV series called DESTROY BUILD DESTROY (2009-2011), a shadow creature in LEGION OF THE BLACK (2012), in a thriller with Danny Trejo 20 FT BELOW: THE DARKNESS DESCENDING (2014), and portraying Hercules in HERCULES: REBORN (2014).

Where You Can Currently See Him: Wrestling as Johnny Mundo for TV series LUCHA UNDERGROUND (2014-2015), and in several movies: STORMAGEDDON (2015), MINUTES TO MIDNGHT (2015) [I wonder if that was borrowed from Linkin Park], BOONE: THE BOUNTY HUNTER (2015), THE CHRONICLES OF RICK ROLL (2016), STRANGE NATURE (2016), WTF: WORLD THUMBWRESTLING FEDERATION (2016) [For real, wtf? LOL], DAVE MADE A MAZE (2016), and DIABLO STEEL (2016).

My husband used to love wrestling. Back in the day, when we first started dating, I remember him watching WWE Smackdown and WWF Raw. He doesn’t watch it anymore, but I happened to be in the same room at the time that he was watching an episode. And this dude swaggers out.

Shoulder-length brown hair.


Leather pants.

Sunglasses with white crosses on the lenses.

Long, fur coat.

Sexy, shit-eating grin. Or sexy pout.


In my mind, I was thinking “Well, hel-lo. And who are YOU, sexy mofo that I could sop up with a biscuit?” but to my husband, I actually said, all casual-like, “So, who’s this dude? He looks like Jim Morrison from The Doors.” My husband laughed and said, “Yeah, his name’s John Morrison and it’s a riff off that guy from The Doors. It’s his thing.”


Needless to say, he was definitely rockin’ that Jim Morrison”thing.” I sat down and proceeded to watch his act.

Because you all know it’s an act, right?

I’d like to point out that I’m not a fan of wrestling whatsoever.

Whenever my husband happened to be watching it, and if I happened to be in the room at the time, and if John just happened to be on, I might’ve watched it. If only to see him doing some of his trademark moves. He even knew a little parkour, which impressed me to no end.

No really, it did.

That shit is tough, man.

Then he fell off the face of the planet and when MAGIC MIKE came out and I saw how crappy and physically unappealing Kevin Nash was, I screamed at the screen (and Channing Tatum)  “WHY THE FUCK DIDN’T YOU GET JOHN MORRISON?!! HE WOULD’VE MADE THE PERFECT TARZAN! AND WITH A BOD LIKE THAT, YOU KNOW HE CAN DANCE!!” Argh! So frustrating. When they brought him back again in MAGIC MIKE XXL, I wanted to cut the screen to ribbons.

But I’m not bitter.


I’ll get over it.


I find that when wrestlers make the jump to the big screen, they can’t act for shit and make these dumb, cheesy movies. You cringe to see it but have to watch it. Y’know, trainwreck and all. I’d be interested to check out that Hercules movie, though. Just to see. So many actors have tried that and haven’t really pulled it off, so I’d be interested to see his interpretation.

Anyway, welcome to the Society, John, you Honcho of Hotness.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,

Follow Friday #94


Question this week from Parajunkee and Allison Can Read.

How does this work? You follow a blog, they follow you. Win. Win. Just make sure to follow back if someone follows you! With that being said, be sure to check out my Follow Policy before you make any rash decisions.

This week’s question: Name a movie you would have loved to read as a book ( That is not a book already obviously).


This question actually made me think.

strictly ballroomBut I finally decided on STRICTLY BALLROOM (1992)

A maverick dancer risks his career by performing an unusual routine and sets out to succeed with a new partner.

I saw this movie twice when it was in the movie theater.

Had bought the poster at one point (but no longer have it).

Bought the DVD when it came out. And I may now have to watch it again at some point over the holiday weekend. Just because I mentioned it here.

The rare few times this was on TV, I would watch it because…

Paul Mercurio.

Back in the day, this Australian actor (this movie was filmed in Australia, so everyone has the accent) was a Hawtie on a Stick.  StrictlyBallroom

Loved the ballroom dancing.

Loved the romance aspect.

Loved the fact that his character was a bit of a rebel and that he and his partner wanted to do some non-regulation moves during the final competition.

And did them anyway! Even though they knew they wouldn’t win.

This movie made me love ballroom dancing (watching it, not participating, that is), so whenever I  happened to catch a competition on PBS, I would watch it.

The flashy, barely-there costumes.

The complicated footwork.

The spray-on tans.

The gelled-down and shellacked hair dos.

Trying to figure out which couples were really couples or just partners.

I loved it all.

Especially the portion of the competition where they could do overhead lifts. I don’t remember the name (Show? Exhibition? Something), but that was always my favorite part.

I think this would’ve made a great romance book.

What about you? What movie do you think would make a great book? This inquiring mind wants to know.

Peace, lurve, and wet panties,
