Makin’ Clicky

Today the thing that is making me batcrap seemed to fit better at my other blog, so please come help me fix-o-spand my freakin’ vocabulary over at

Five Full Plates

When we REALLY start this 5FP thing, come January one, I will blog there every Tuesday and you will just know I am there on that day, always. But for now, the five of us are just catch as catch canning as pre-program stuff comes up we wish to blog about. I am trying to keep the food-fitness-body crazy contained over THERE, and the book-family-pet-work-non-specific crazy over HERE.

Over here, filed under YAY, which is south of Crazy and has a mild climate and lovely fruit trees, the catalog came from my publishing house. This is the front cover. LOOK at Rose Mae Lolley looming up all curvy and red-delicious over The Park next to the likes of Scott Turow and Nelson DeMille. Not bad dates for a mouthy girl from the wrong side of the tracks just north of Nowhere, Alabama. Not bad dates at ALL. *starry-eyed grin*

That's a beautiful catalog! Your book is by far the most pick-me-up looking, in my opinion.

Beautiful cover - it stands out nicely among all of those staid, business-suit-like covers. Your covers says, "yeah, I'm girly, and I LIKE it!" It seems the covers by Seth Grahame-Smith and Sebastian Junger like your cover, too. They're checking her out.

Your cover is indeed the bright spot of color which draws the eye in that photo!

So . . is your competitive streak going to make you lose your 10 pounds BEFORE the 1st, so you can just blog "BOO-yah!!" and also "Nyah-nyah"?

No. I think it woudl be wiser to gain ten over Christmas because new weight comes off easiest, and then lose it very fast? *grin*

Yay for high profile product placement - especially on your publisher's catalog cover!
This speaks to their commitment to promoting the book, yes?
Very cool.

I know you shouldn't judge a book by its cover...but I LOVE the cover! I cannot wait until Backseat Saints is available. You are one of the few authors I buy in hardback - I simply can't wait for the paperback.
