The Adventures of Saffron Sally
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Novelist Melanie Lynn Hauser is writing a very interesting serial blog, perhaps a novel in progress (although she denies this), but whatever it is, it is good writing. Check it out here: http://www.melanielynnehauser.com/sally

I just read Episode Six and it was a hoot. Or, as she would say, it tickled my fanny.

TV Directory sale
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Steve Harrison's Guide to the Top National TV Talk & Interview Shows is going on sale today until Friday at 6:00 p.m. Eastern time. You can save up to $200 for the best TV show directory by going to this website:

Another Seattle Post-Intelligencer blog
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
