Lost In Dodge

My adoptive dad (not legally, but I claim him and he occasionally claims me) has published his first book, Lost In Dodge. The link will take you to the Authorhouse website, or you can order it from Barnes and Noble, Borders, or Amazon.

I've been awaiting the official publication of this book with bated breath. I was lucky enough to get to read the early version, and immediately upon completion, I demanded an autographed copy for myself.

It arrived in the mail today. Of course, I'm not sure if it counts as autographed, since the signature at the end of the note on the flyleaf reads "My love, Me" but what can you do? I'll smack him for it later.

This is a great story, folks. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll laugh until you cry. Go buy it, you won't be disappointed.

And Now for Something Completely Different...

Tev brought me a Christmas present. Some of these.

Finally opened them up and tried them today, and oh my god they're delicious. I've eaten quite a few of them already, and I need to stop otherwise I'm not going to sleep for a week.

This is the chocolate covered snack of the Gods.

Go, get them. Eat them. Bounce off the walls.

'Scuse me now, I have to go run a triathalon before my leg jitters so hard it falls off. :D

AD's Bribe

Apparently, Jane has enthralled a few others as much as she has me. AD even flat out states that he's hooked, which is a high compliment indeed.

In fact, he offered me a bribe for Chapter Two. He offered to post something new on his regular blog, (which he didn't, naughty naughty!) plus a new Star of Life chapter if I would agree to have Chapter Two up by Wednesday. Now, I've been working on it, and I've got some good stuff, but I'm so excited about reading new Star of Life material that I'm just... well, I can't concentrate to finish it!

Yep, AD. I'm holding Jane and friends hostage against you actually doing what you said you would! So, folks, if you want more of Jane and her oddball talents, you'll have to bug the crap out of AD to get that post up.

Maybe between all of us bugging him, he'll follow through this time. He's been promising that chapter for a long time now, with no explanation for why it didn't get put up, so I figure he deserves this.

At least as much as MattG deserved the snark he got over the first Perspectives.......

Go, my minions! Go and harass the writer! *evil mastermind laugh*

** If this actually works, I'll dance around like a crazy person yelling "I have minions!! Wooot!" On the other hand, if no one else bugs AD, I'll wind up looking like a real tool. So do me a favor folks, I don't want to look like a tool. Plus, you know, my self esteem would be crushed.
No, I have absolutely no problem with pity minions. Whatever works to get that next chapter.
