Kindle Fire or Hot Guy?

It’s probably not a question that gets asked a lot, the more common one being Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet, iPad etc. etc. I’ll just concentrate on the hot guy aspect, leaving those of you who want a detailed analysis about the Kindle Fire to visit my bloviating buddy BigAl’s blog. If he hasn’t covered it, well...

So on to hot guys. Today’s specimen: Jonathan Rhys Meyers. For those of you not familiar with this almost perfect example of the male species, JRM played the very sexy Henry VIII in the HBO series, The Tudors. However, I chose him to blog about today not because of his obvious awesomeness, but because he encouraged me to change the course of my life. Not personally of course (le sigh), but through a song.



Words written or sung can have such a great impact on one’s life, and this particular song gave me the push I needed to finally give up on any thoughts of my past pretty-much-chosen-for-me career in science and pursue my writing, even though I didn’t know (and still don’t) where it would take me. What I do know is that this time, I’m doing it for me.

The ability to share my work through eBook outlets like Amazon and Barnes & Noble has been a gift. Please join me and my fellow authors Sibel Hodge, Diana Estill, Maniak Dhar, Edward G Talbot and Adam Pepper in launching The Kindle Fire Department March Madness Kindle Fire Giveaway.

Love JRM in The Tudors! :) I definitely prefer Henry Cavill, though. I really need to get started watching The Tudors again, I left off right in between seasons two and three.
