Welcome back to Wednesday Links, y’all! I’m so happy you’re here.
It’s my partner’s birthday this week and I am just brimming with excitement to celebrate. I did an artsy crafty thing for them and made a Princess Monoke-themed light up terrarium. They don’t regularly read the site unless I tell them, so I feel safe revealing it. I’ll be sure to post pictures next week. It’s the first time I’ve attempted such a project and I’m so happy with the results. I’ll also link the tutorial I used to help with logistics. Yay for YouTube!
We’re also making our way through June and the higher temperatures are becoming more and more regular. The boob sweat is upon us! Not loving that!
One last reminder that I’m doing a free event in Cambridge tomorrow evening! It’s a romance-themed Mad-Libs. Still very nervous about the whole thing, but I definitely think the anxiety leading up to it will be the worst part. I’ll have some books to give away and I believe Katalina Gamarra will have advanced copies of her debut Ben and Beatriz.
Our Flag Meanings Death was renewed for a second season! Yay! Here’s a wonderful thread of behind-the-scenes moments:

It wouldn’t be Romancelandia without a kerfuffle from time to time, namely other authors wanting to be part of the romance money-making industry but still want to distance themselves at the same time. The Mary Sue has a breakdown. I definitely strained something from rolling my eyes too hard. Thanks to Bransler for sending this our way!
I love a whole bit of content that makes me cry. Grandma Great on TikTok is the latest to add to that list.
