An Eventful Monday. (With Catapult. And Cat.)

If you look above, you'll notice I now have an "Events" page.

I was going to put one in before, but until I had a second official author appearance scheduled, it would have been, strictly speaking, an "Event" page. I thought that might look funny, so I waited until the plural was appropriate. At least now it's accurate.

Not that I'm a stickler or anything...

I'm pretty sure that second "event" is only for the people who are attending the conference. Still, I'm counting it. And if there are any New Atlantic Independent Booksellers reading this, I sure hope you'll stop by my table there, because I'd love to meet you.

But EVERYBODY is welcome at the first event!

If you come (which I sincerely hope everyone within a reasonable driving distance will do), you'll get to hear me stumble through my very first public reading of an excerpt from my book! You lucky b@stards. I'm sure it will be (painfully) entertaining. To distract from that, I'm bringing chocolate. And a prop.

What prop, you ask?

TA-DA! This:


No, not the cat. The catapult. Which is relevant to the book, as those of you who've read an advance copy know. If you haven't read it yet...well, you'll see. *grin*

That's my daughter's cat, by the way. We're kitty-sitting Vera and her sister, Valentine, while the kiddos are on a well-deserved vacay.

Oh, gawd. I just realized this post contains not only book-pimpage, but also a cat picture.

Um...sorry?

But come on...it's a cat. On a CATapult. Not only that, but it's a TABLETOP catapult, and it's on a coffee TABLE. A CAT on a TABLEtop CATapult on a coffee TABLE.

Who could resist sharing that? Not I. (Obviously.)

What haven't you been able to resist lately? Please share!

Your posts always make me LOL!
Oh, you have NO idea how much I would LOVE to go to one of your author's appearances! I'm off to your EVENT page and I'm crossing my fingers that one of them is in Chile. Bahahaha!

Looking at cat pictures? And giggling over a TABLEtop CATapult.

Eating the three chocolate kisses my husband left on the keyboard. Long story why but it was a nice gesture.

Must check out this touted EVENT page. :-)

I'd totally be there if I could! Knock 'em dead, Linda!

Virgina is a little to far but good luck!

Your posts are hilarious and I loved the picture, though I half expected it to actually catapult the cat off the table.

Love it! Your event page is great. How exciting. Sending you positive thoughts for your first speaking engagement on your book. I am sure you will have everyone laughing. :-) I went to our MN State Fair on Saturday and couldn't resist MINI DONUTS!

Wish I was close enough to make your event! Always love a cat pic, so no worries:) Lately, the battle is between me and chips. I'm losing...

Would love to be at one of your "events", but I'm sure you'll muddle through without me. You're gonna be SUPER. (Just think of it as another acting gig.) I couldn't resist buying a lemon meringue pie from the store. (But it was THEIR fault for putting the darned thing on sale!)

HaHaHa! I haven't been able to resist much of anything lately. Sigh.

I would so love to be at your first event. If only someone would catapult me to VA!

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Well, I definitely got the table CATapult joke!

Congrats on your plural events -- with many more to come, I hope!

Dawn @Lighten Up! said...

Oh!!! Your very first reading! I SO wish I could be there. Very, very happy for you. Much hugs and love coming your way!!!

Well, now I won't be able to resist checking you Events tab to see if you're heading my direction.
