Ahoy, my hearties! All right, all right, I'm channeling my inner pirate not my inner Bandita, but I hope the photos make up for the wooden leg and the parrot and the bad teeth. Bandits need good teeth so they can flash a sexy grin beneath the black mask!
The Bandits are going on tour for the next two weeks (and thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we'll be holding the fort here too so you get double Bandit blast for your money!).
The fine crew who steer the good ship Romance Novel TV have invited us to invade from Monday, 21st January, to Friday, 1st February. Avast, ye landlubbers! So from Mondays to Fridays over that fabulous fortnight, two Banditas will take charge of the blog over there and bring the mayhem that rules our blog to a new audience.
We're hoping our friends and honorary Banditas will take ship with us, rowing over in dinghies or, if really desperate, swimming. We'll save you from the sharks and crocodiles!
The party kicks off on Monday with the fabulous Caren Crane challenging me to a haiku duel. You don't have to comment in haikus. As you know, we love anybody who will talk back to us however they want to do it!
But if you do display your poetic skills, you may win fabulous Bandita Booty (some things don't change, even if we are playing away). Our favorite haiku wins a signed copy of Untouched and a $15 voucher from Amazon.
Worth stretching yourself to writing a poem of five syllables, seven syllables and five syllables, methinks!
After that there will be two Bandits a day on duty to keep the party going. Please come over and play. We promise cold cyber champagne, hot cyber men, prizes galore and lots of laughs. Hey, bet that's the best offer you've had post-New Year's Eve!
So as we're about to enter new fields and conquer new territory and beat any cliches we find into a pulp, I thought I'd ask a perennial question of all you experts on Internet interaction. What do you look for in a blog? What appeals to you? What doesn't? What brings you back to a blog day after day or even on a semi-regular basis?
And don't forget to come and say hello on Romance Novel TV from Monday!
