Mindy Hung of The Toast did a lovely feature on multicultural and interracial romances, and it has a nice summary about Back to the Good Fortune Diner. Makes me think I could do a book about Tiffany's brother, Daniel....
I blogged about writing ethnic characters in contemporary romance as a "guest lecturer" at Romance University!
Actual conversation with the husband:
John: Man, the ferry service from the Bruce Peninsula to Manitoulin Island has been delayed because of low water levels. Thanks, global climate change.
Me: Aww, poor boo. Don't worry, I'll go fill it up. I'll bring a garden hose.
John: Or you could bring five.
Me: I could!
John: Or you could bring five hundred hoses! It'll fill up a million times faster!
Me: I don't get your math. But if I had a million hoses, I could turned them all on one at a time and by the time I got to the last one, I'd have to start turning them off.
John: If you had the Flash helping you, that could work.
Me: It's true! I own that issue! It was great.
John: Well, I guess. Except I think Superman might be busy.
Me: Supergirl will do in a pinch.
John: That's sexist.
Me: Well, maybe she's busy!
John: Doing what? Cooking in the kitchen, watching the kids and make 70 cents to Clark Kent's dollar?
Me: Yeah, that Superman versus Supergirl in the workforce extravaganza issue didn't do so well in sales for DC.
