And in a little “P.S” at the bottom of her review, Dev mentioned that she wanted a trampoline. Heh.
Yeah, there’s this great sexy trampoline scene in Dare To Love. And the funny thing is, my editor Angie and I argued about that scene in a very amusing way when she was editing my book.
Now full disclaimer here: Angie and I are very good friends. We go way back, knew each other and were friends before she ever became Executive Editor at Samhain. But when we edit a book together, it’s all business and pretty much no holds barred. She tears apart my work, insults are hurled, plates fly….(okay, kidding…mostly :giggle: ). But the completed book is so much better for the editing we do together.
Except when she told me that I should take the trampoline out of the scene because it was an insurance liability for kids and I should instead use a bouncy house.
Dude. The trampoline was an integral prop in a very sexy and romantic scene. It HAD to be left in the scene because no way in hell was I going to have my hero and heroine sliding around some vinyl bouncy house. Um…so not sexy, ya know? :hide:
So we argued (Angie and I argue in a fun way….really). In the end, we compromised and had the bouncy house for the little kids and the trampoline for the older kids. I even indicated the adults gave the trampoline a try. Heh.
Now I know those of you who haven’t yet read DARE TO LOVE are dying to read that trampoline scene, aren’t you? 😀
And thanks again Dev! :doglick:
