Strip maze

I'm trying to organise a blog book tour for Bargain with the Devil and just learned a good idea from the yahoo group I'm a member of.

It's to come up with keywords from my book and try to find blogs that may be related to them. I've come up with 31 keywords so far. Let start with the first one: MAZE.

In the book the devilish Mr. Darcy asked for a piece of clothing from Elizabeth Bennet for every turn he took to take her out of the maze in Pemberley.

When the book passed through the editor Judith, she said I had to be specific with the trees that were used in a maze in Derbyshire.

Luckily I had Lynne's help. She lives in Derbyshire and excels in research. She suggested blackthorn, hawthorn, hazel and Boxwood (or Buxwood). I have decided to use Buxwood.

This one looks a bit too low for a strip maze game though!


  1. Is it possible to have the hedge too low for the purpose intended??? I think not! (g)

    Best Regards, Galen

  2. Ha! Love Galen's comment. Cool how you managed to get an entire blog post out of that keyword, Maze. Find any good blogs out of it?

  3. Hmm - yes, well this particular maze would perhaps be more "revealing?" LOL

  4. I hope they're wearing sandels at least (and a smile). Looks like gravel they'd be walking on.

    I didn't see a new blog section for potential tour stops. Are you going to put one up soon? I just added one and have one potential site already.

  5. Galen, I know where you are going, hehe, you want them to sit on the hedge for some hot activities?

    Alex, no, I haven't found any blog host for this yet. I think I will try gardening blogs. Marvin, yes, too revealing.

    Stephen, you want to read the whole scene? Buy the book when it comes out then. My possible tour hosts are listed in another of my blogs. Btw, I can't access your blog from time to time. Are you with blogger?

  6. Could be rather prickly for intimate encounters - not to mention you may be corrupting young hedgehogs.

    Great post! Even if no blogs turn up, you've expanded your tags.

  7. LOL, in the book, they did it on the bench. It's Galen who has another idea!
