Remember this post on The Blog Surprise? In the comments on that page, author Shelley Bates, a 2005 RITA award winner for her first inspirational romance, Grounds to Believe, (which was edited, you may be interested to know, by my own editor--not that my talent is on the same plane as Shelley's, but I had you really impressed there for a couple of seconds, didn't I?) has just started blogging. Let's all troop over to Shelley's brand-new blog and welcome her to the neighborhood.
I was just about to hit the Publish button and shoot this post into the blogisphere when I chuckled over the realization that after posting earlier this morning about Keats, I am now writing about Shelley. As someone who named her firstborn after a character in a Wagnerian opera, I can't help wondering if Shelley (yes, that's her real name; she writes under that and also a pseudonym) was named for the poet.
