Do you know what I just discovered? Amazon has released my new book, Monsters’ Throwdown, on Kindle!
I haven’t slept since my book launch last week, and I was still whirling like a Dervish but at a slower speed—more like a windup toy whose battery is finally running down—when my husband, WW, tried to inform me of the release of the Kindle Edition of my book.
ME: “Oooooooh, myyyyyy Goooood, IIIII’mmm fiiinaaally pubbbblished!”
WW: “Hey, Cutie. I’ve got more good news for you: Amazon just released Monsters’ Throwdown on Kindle. Now all your digital readers can get a copy of your book before Christmas. Isn’t that great?
ME: “IIIII ammm soooooo eeexciiited, IIII caaan hhhardlly ssstannd iiit, but I’m sooo damn tired.”
WW: “I can see that—you’re beginning to sound like you’re drunk. Looks like someone could use a nap. How about giving your readers a quick shout out about the digital format of Monsters’ Throwdown and curling up on the couch for a nice afternoon siesta?
ME: “Sssuuure . . . They just need to check out (YAAAAWN) the link below. In the meantime, have you seen my down pillow and my Snuggle blanket?”
Dear Blogger Friends and Faithful Readers:
My family is on its way here this very moment via trains, plains, and automobiles. I will be taking off my blogging hat for the next couple of weeks in exchange for the hat of a mother who administers lots of hugs and kisses to world-weary adult children; I will also be ignoring social media during that time for the slobbery kisses of an adorable 5 year old that I’ll be reading bedtime stories to from a book that I can hold in my hands as we cuddle together, and I rock him to sleep while “visions of sugarplums dance in his head.” Please note that I’ll be thinking of you all with a heart full of love and grace. Happy Holidays and a very Merry Christmas to you all! I’ll return with more hilarious blogs the first week of January.
