    […] Yesterday I made my usual jump over to Booksquare to see what interesting and intelligent thoughts she had for the day. And, well, calm and happiness ceased. The problem was not with Booksquare. It was with her link to GalleyCat which linked to a particularly short-sighted and annoying review/commentary by Collette Bancroft at called No Party Girls in This Collection. […]

    Wait a minute. What lines aimed at older women are the closing? I must be out of the loop on that one.

    Rumor on the ‘Nets suggests that a serious look is being taken at the Next line.

    Yes evil plan. Yoga good.

    I hope they can fix Next, but something tells me that it’s time to rethink a lot of things at Harlequin. Like, oh, the concept of line all together. But you know me, always wanting more. And more.

    Okay, I’ve heard that Next is cutting back to 2 books per month.
