If You Give An Author A Cookie

"Your house is cleaner than mine and these drapes are whimsical and thought provoking. I'm staying."

Morning Readers,

She may just follow you to your blog.

And when she follows you to your blog, she might crash on your couch.

And once she gets comfortable on your couch, she'll demand a blanket, the last installment of Harry Potter, and a warm brown sugar Pop Tart with cold 1% milk.

The milk will make her sleepy, so she'll ask that you read to her in dulcet tones.

The reading will make her fall asleep unless you really emphasize the last battle between Voldemort and Harry, make the sound magic does when it hits other magic, and scream, "Potter!" as loud as you can.

Depending on how loud you yelled that last part, she's now sitting up on the couch, finishing the Pop Tart and waiting for your interview questions.

Today I'm over visiting my lovely friend Martinis and Minivans and my other gorgeous friend The Mom of the Year. 

Martini invited me to sit in the Blogger's Studio.

Mom of the Year is giving away two of my books.

Both are fantastic.

That's right, I'm in two places at once, something that hasn't been done since that forgettable scene in A Walk to Remember. So come on by and see if they ever get me off their couches. It's doubtful. We're almost out of coffee at my house.

Until next Time, Readers!

  1. Two places at once. Impressive.

    I would like a warm brown sugar Pop Tart and some Harry Potter reading. That sounds perfect.

    1. I dress to impress. Ok, that wasn't quite accurate because I'm usually in my pajamas, but I'm thrilled you were impressed, just the same. *Throws Pop Tart and milk your way*

  3. For the record, "If you Give a Mouse a Cookie" was one of my favorite books. Ever. And also for the record, I just gave my mom my copy of your book to read and now she wants to adopt you. Especially because you like beer.

    1. It was also one of my favorite books as a kid. I remember getting it from a book drive or something and reading it over and over. If your mom has beer, she may adopt me when she sees fit.

    1. Oh my goodness, I didn't know those existed, but now I do. And now I will go buy and eat a large portion of the box.

  6. I knew you were talented; did not know you were magic. Two places? One time? Mind. Blown.

    1. It's all really about the giant hand flourish at the end. That, and a very gracious audience...;)

  7. I remember that scene!! Bad news for you, now that you referenced this, my adoration of you has only grown and we are going to have to go with that stalker situation being a definite. You may want to give your husband a head's up in case he sees something moving in the bushes. Thanks for hanging out over at my place and sharing all of your awesomeness :)

    1. And my adoration of you has grown now that I know you know A Walk to Remember. What was that sound? You're right. I think it WAS our friendship being set in stone.
