Happy Thursday, everyone!
I won't be blogging next week, so I'd like to take this opportunity to invite you all to the Beyond Her Book anniversary bash. Barbara Vey is the hostess with the mostest, and she'll be coordinating the festivities as readers, writers, and publishers all get together to celebrate the anniversary of her book blog. It's a virtual party filled with lots of imagination, fun, and prizes. Why not check it out?
I will be there on Monday, bringing to the cemetery my favorite all-dead skeleton band--Wicked Trochee Spondee--to warble their best covers of the classics by Jimmi Hendrix and the Carpenters, among other notables. They've also been known to do Lady GaGa and Nat King Cole upon request, as well as jazz renditions of Tiny Tim and Justin Bieber. What can I say? They're multi-talented!
Also, my dragons will make an appearance at Downton Abbey on Friday to warm things up and remind people of my next reprint release. And to bring the pizza, of course! What's a party without dragons and pizza? A very boring meeting, that's what. lol
Did I mention I'm giving away two $10.00 gift certificates for Amazon.com as well? And I might drop by to offer a surprise prize during the week, like other contributors have done in the past.
The bash will last from March 4th through March 9th this year, with different genres celebrated each day at different virtual venues (including a cemetery, the Bates motel, the Algonquin Hotel, a Caribbean beach, and Downton Abbey). Readers can comment to put their names in for a variety of prizes, but the fun is really in the way the party plays out via the comments and Ms. Vey's wickedly delightful blog posts. If you'd like to see more about the party, click here for more information.
I can't wait for the bash this year, as virtual blog parties are few and far between. I don't have to drive or fly anywhere; I can just sit at home in my jammies and be around other people who love to do what I love to do--READ!
I hope you'll bop in next week to hang out with whoever shows up. It's going to be awesome, and I hope to see you there. :)
