This link popped up on Twitter a couple of days ago, I've only just now gotten around to watching it: Adam Curry interviews LKH (I've been trying to get an embed code, but no luck!)

It's 26mins of general chatter with some Hit List promo thrown in there, sadly none of it that you haven't heard before. So, get out your bingo cards, Lashers! I'm paraphrasing here, but these are the highlights:
  • "I pioneered the genre!" (inb4 Buffy!)
  • "Vampires are the new Prince Charming"
  • "The people who hate the books are still buying them!" with an added "And the people hate the books read them more closely than those who say they love them." (Which I thought was a lovely way to flip off pretty much everyone)
  • Claims she's one of the first to have created vampires that can have sex with an "I have a biology degree!" bonus
  • No, there won't be any tv show/movie because she cannot understand how a full length novel can be "winnowed" down to 120-ish pages of a script. ("What do you take out?" It's like she doesn't understand that all the pages spent on description can easily be summed up with a couple of visuals)
  • She does not watch the Vampire Diaries/True Blood or reads anything within her genre.
  • Apparently she has the highest "rate" of male fans in her genre (with maybe an exception of Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire books thanks to True Blood). I think she means percentage, but...uh, okay.
It's kinda nice that Adam Curry isn't a fanboy in this and asks questions without gushing too much. I really wish that LKH didn't just recycle the same answers she's been giving for at least the last five years for every interview/podcast that I've managed to get my hands on. I get that she's probably been asked a lot of these questions before, but that doesn't mean she has to give answers like predictive text.

But I sort of wish she'd do more interviews/podcasts, because she has got a lot more charisma in person than what gets across in blogs/social media. It's far more pleasant to listen to this than to read about it, even if I still wind up rolling my eyes and shaking my head in quiet despair.

This is LKH's response to the story about an Austrian guy that kept his daughter imprisoned in a basement and wound up having several children by her.  I think we can all agree that this is an awful bit of news from the world at large.

Just as a warning, this whole thing might leave you with a bad taste in your mouth as well as your skull.  LKH in bold, me not so much while I push the boundaries of good taste.

I'm pretty sure this is a new benchmark for epic fail. )

There really isn't enough D: to express my feelings on all this.  Ugh. *passes out brainbleach*

Can someone please tell me what's going on? Show me the light, the sense the sanity?

I posted this as a comment but I figured it was worth its own post.

LKH has gone on about her need for privacy in her life. At Q&A's and authors panels she makes a big deal about what people can't ask her. She did a blog entry earlier this year about the internet and personal boundaries.

This current blog entry ,that was wonderfully flogged, is publically mirrored at Amazon.Com. Anyone going to look up THE HARLEQUIN or any of her other books, is going to stumble across it.

We might be snarking here in the semi-privacy of this community. But there are people responding in comments on Amazon to the blog. Not to mention that there are now forum discussion threads about 'Her Soap Opera' life.

Someone please tell me how it is that LKH is not a publicity genius? Tell me how LKH isn't the 'Paris Hilton' of the genre - doing ridiculous things to keep herself in the public's eye at all times?

And if it's not a publicity stunt, one of many in fact, could someone also explain to me how someone so sensitive to the jellus!haterz and the small negative minority could expose so much more of themselves on fricking Amazon.com?

For my 19th C. BritLit class, I have to read "Silly Novels by Lady Novelists", an essay by George Eliot. As I was reading along, I thought, "Huh. This sounds so familiar." Fast forward about 150 years (it was written in 1856, I think) and tweak some societal details, and it's about LKH.

This version is longer than mine, but hopefully it has the quotations I'm referencing.

using literary wank for snark purposes is the only real reason to go to university, yo )
