things that eventually became my stomping ground, such as action, comedy, plot reversals, supernatural elements, big casts of colorful characters, and so on.
Looking back over the furlongs I’ve already covered, I can see that I was a plucky filly at the starting gate, and after some rough years in training, I eventually found my footing and hit my stride. I’m still a long way from the homestretch, but I’m having a decent run and gaining ground, and I have high hopes of finishing in the money.

Harlequin Sued By Authors
A small group of authors has filed a class-action suit against the romance behemoth Harlequin Enterprises and two of its European subsidiaries over e-Book royalties. The lawsuit, which seeks a jury trial, alleges that Harlequin owes the authors additional royalties for eBooks sold under the terms of contracts signed between 1990 and 2004. The purpose of the suit, according to lead attorney David B. Wolf is to force Harlequin to “pay authors what they are legally due” according to the contracts they signed. Present and former Harlequin authors who wrote under contracts signed between 1990 and 2004 are encouraged to examine the contracts to determine if they qualify as members of the plaintiff class named in the suit.
