New tagline...

OK, just put up a new tagline. I think this one works a lot better.

Any thoughts?

Thinking antagonist...

Jarboe here... Mr. Carter has some things to say below... enjoy...

There is a lot of contemplation today about antagonists. Antagonists are quite often the funnest characters in novels (and movies). I love the character development of Saruman. Darken Rahl is a crazily attractive antagonist.


But, what about when the antagonist is not a physical presence, not a live person?


For example, what happens when the antagonist is TIME?


Or FEAR?


Can these ideas only be tools of the antagonist? Or, can TIME alone be the primary antagonist?



Check out Kristen Lamb's conversation about antagonists here:

ALSO, check out her links on We Are Not Alone -- good resource for Platform Building (social media):

Thanks Mr. Carter.

Friendly little excerpt...

The creator of this world (Mr. Carter) has decided to, from time to time, drop the occasional excerpt from his latest writings and expansions of this incredible layer of dimensions.

It may be a quote from a character, or a scene description, or (if we are lucky) a peek inside the brain of our favorite character ROMY MALLOY.

Here is today's drop -- a scene from the first novel BRILLIANT DISGUISE:

 
Candace Covey was absolutely gorgeous, and under other circumstances Romy probably would have hated her. Compared to Romy’s five-foot-eight one-hundred-fifteen pound body topped by long light brown hair with blonde streaks, Candy was Aphrodite. But, Candy was the best tech-assistant in St. Louis, bar none. Romy walked back toward her and gently took her by the elbow to stop her before she made it too close to the ambulance. Candy raised her eyebrow and twisted her lips to the left. Romy made a mental note to ask about the perfume Candy was wearing. As if it wasn’t enough to look perfect, Candy smelled perfect too.
  “Uh-oh... what now?” Candy said in a conspiratorial whisper.





I hope you enjoyed that!

We have assumed control...

I am Jarboe Malloy.

I have assumed control of this blog.

Romy Malloy is my hero, and is perhaps the coolest lady I have ever met.

Thank you.

New Site for Romy Malloy

I am considering this as the new/semi-permanent site for my Romy Malloy novels.



What do you think?
