And Now For Something Completely Different...

"That's an un-parrot!"

Thank you again, Morgan, for hosting me over at Acme Authors Link -

Thank you everyone for birthday wishes and well-wishes! I am still under the weather today, as I had a speaking engagement last night and it pretty well drained me. (The only reason to miss a speaking engagement is death - one's own!)

I will be hosting several authors here over the next few weeks! In addition, those interviews will be posted at my online writer's club journal, which boasts over 450 members. I also feature an author in my monthly newsletter, which goes out on the 20th - today is was author Heidi Thomas!

In other news...

Are E-Books Like Music?

This was a cute idea! Mayra’s dog, Amigo, will be interviewing other author’s pets on a brand new blog! Details are here:

And in the land of YouTube...

My husband's video, Steve's Bad Day, has over 400 views so far. Not bad for his first and with no advertising. (It's a shame - used to be new videos always appeared on the main page, but now one has to pay for a prime spot.)
Steve's Bad Day -

My husband also caught this video on Attack of the Show - "Obama's Elf." If you've ever heard Eric Carmen's song, you will laugh at this 18 second video!

That's all for now! What interesting news have you caught this week?


  1. LOVE that video! I was viewer 414 just now. Very professional and funny.

  2. Thanks for being my guest at my group blog, Acme Authors Link. Your post was a great motivator!
