[I went back and added to the other posts so it's clearer, but this is because I know Mikke'll probably miss those from being swamped, and this way she'll see what I meant. Or, uhm, something. IT MAKES SENSE TO ME, OKAY?]

That is a wonderful visual aid! Makes perfect sense to me...

I'm waiting for snark from midlist friends about the placement.

The world needs more lizard charts.

I only just found out that this is an "anole" and I've spent my entire life calling them chameleons -- well, they do change color! Then I did a search and found all these strange lizards with curly tails that move really slow -- those are not chameleons I've ever seen. Sheesh, people.

Next up, a complaining post about how budgies are baby-birds and not these particular parakeet-types or whatever, even if that misuse of the term also only exists in the Deep South. Word adaptation, baby!

I have nothing to say except "Lizard! Eee! Socute!"

But then, I've not had my coffee yet.

Because life is better with chameleons hanging on your window screen!

No, I saw your reply, but this is enormously illustrative anyway. (I like the 'short term blockbuster' part.) :D

It seemed apropos, seeing how a lot of publishers & even booksellers seem to puff up certain books like they're the second coming, market the hell out of them, and then the stacks disappear and you never hear from that author again. It's all quite Freudian, really.
