Bats: The Romantic Side

Okay, it’s time to share another short snippet of 60 Beautiful Bat Facts as part of this week’s WeWriWa blog hop. If you aren’t familiar with this weekly tradition, it’s pretty simple. Just keep reading. If you’re a WeWriWa veteran, hop down and check out my snippet in the pretty peach box.

For the WeWriWa virgins, take a few minutes during the week and sign up on the linky list, between 12 pm Saturday and 9 am on Sunday morning, you make sure a post that showcases 8-10 sentences of your writing and a backlink to the list goes live, and then you spend an hour or two reading and commenting on everyone’s posts. It’s fun and a great way to connect with new authors. And it’s made my to-read pile grow at an alarming rate. All authors are welcome to play along, and can share published works or even works-in-progress. All genres are welcome to play along.

Last week I shared the various weird and bizarre ways bats have been used for hair care. The week before we discussed how Pliny the Elder believed that bat blood was the best way to turn up the heat in the bedroom. And while there are an assortment of downright disgusting medical “cures” that require the use of bats, I could use a break, so I decided that this week is the perfect time to take a look at bats in romance. happy raksha bandhan!


That’s it for me this week. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to take some time to check out the author’s participating in this week’s hop. You won’t be disappointed.

  1. Something good (and not weird) about bats!

    When I was a kid the neighbors had bats in their attic and I used to love watching them come out at dusk. I definitely saw more than five at a time!
