So far he's holding true on the trying to stay up all night part. Don't know how many times I'll have to tell him to go to sleep tonight. The only problem is, the kid still gets up at 6:30 and wakes me up to feed him breakfast. I. Am. Not. A. Fan. Of. This.
2. After months of refusing to be in the same room as me and Taylor Lautner (after the incident in which he caught me grinning like a school girl while watching Taycob on SNL) Hubby finally agreed to watch NEW MOON with me. (And when I say agreed, I mean that he's the one who actually suggested that we rent the movie.) Anyway, hubs and I snuggled up on the couch for a night of Twilightly fun (and I managed to keep my drooling to a minimum) and the best part of the evening was listening to hubby's many observations about the movie.
Here are a few of my favorite:
A) Okay, seriously, how did they get that kid so buff? Cuz I want whatever they gave him.
B) How come the other werewolves don't have rock hard abs, too? Isn't supposed to be part of the whole werewolf package?
C) Tell me again why does Bella likes Edward?
D) Whoa, they actually made that wolf look pensive.
E) Okay, so I kind of get why you have a crush on that Jacob guy.
F) Eew. Does Edward have a third nipple?
G) What was with Bella and Edward wearing those 1920s clothes while running through the forest?
H) So I'm pretty sure the wolf was the best actor in that movie.
Needless to say, it was a very entertaining evening.

Here are the questions:
A. What is the difference between Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy?
B. Why do you think YA Paranormal Romance is so popular?
C. What trends are do see as being hot right now (or in the near future) in the YA paranormal romance genre?D. What trends seem overdone? Any clichés writers may want to avoid?

I need to put my class together, so this contest is a short one. You have until Wednesday, April 21st at Noon MST to get your answers in.
