Romping

I'm updating my school visit flyer and I needed some quotes from Booklist, Kirkus, and School Library Journal to prove that my books are really as wonderful as I say. (And oh yes, they are that wonderful!)

So I'm flipping through reviews and I realize that about half of my reviews use the word 'romp' somewhere in them. As in, "Rallison again delivers a high school romp that will give readers plenty of fun." and "This is a witty, often hilarious romp that should appeal to young readers looking for light, enjoyable fiction."

I hadn't realized it until now, but apparently I'm very romping. I guess that's better then the other word I hear thrown around about my books--the f word. Yes, that's right, fluff.

Anyway, soon I will be sending out a gazillion flyers to media specialists in several states. Let me just tell you all now--you want to book me for a visit. I'm romping.

Hey, I aspire to be known for writing good, solid fluff.

I thought the f-word was for Funny. Your books are very funny.

Janette, you owe me a new keyboard after the f-word comment. I love your blogs.

I thought Romp and the f-word were the same thing :-)

I praise you daily when my daughter picks up something to read--though you need to write a book a week to keep up with her and as she says--"no one is better than that Janet friend of yours, Mom"

Your daughter is brilliant!
