BAD TASTE IN BOYS release date!

Ladies and gents, I have a very important announcement. And as we all know, important announcements on my blog mean one thing and one thing only: Richard Simmons.

He IS my official spokesperson, you know. So, without further ado, let me turn it over to him!

Hi! Hello, people! Do you like my shorts?


Um. Sure. Your shorts are nice. But I don't think they want to talk about your shorts. I think they want to hear the announcement.

Oh, right! I'm supposed to remind you all to eat your vegetables. And clean your eyeballs out with Windex.


NOT THAT ANNOUNCEMENT! The one about BAD TASTE IN BOYS being released on July 12, 2011! The one where they're supposed to mark their calendars because my book will be out in the wild!

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Did you hear that? Call your mom! Tell your friends! Notify the media! Someone call the president! BAD TASTE IN BOYS will be released next July!


Ahem. Thus endeth the official announcement.

I'm beginning to think I need a new official spokesperson.

I'm going to have nightmares about the veggie picture. Just thought you should know...

Congrats on the release date!

Alissa said...

Perhaps a zombie version of Richard Simmons would be more appropriate, but that's too scary to contemplate. Well, not quite as scary at the vegetable photo.

Barry Napier said...

I have an announcement to make today as well...not nearly as awesome as yours, though. I am thinking of having my spokesperson be The Ghost of Emily Dickinson.

(note...when writing this, it was intended as a joke. Now, though, I am seriously considering it...)

Matthew Rush said...

How awesome. Congratulations!

Jamie Eyberg said...

I have one bookcase that has special books. Books that friends have written and others that have been autographed. If you would sign mine I will start a new shelf of autographed books by friends. :)

Kim Harrington said...

Date marked!!!

Now, onto the eyeball washing.

Mireyah Wolfe said...

Mr. Simmons, I think you need to lay off of the sugar.

OMG OMG OMG I am marking my calender RIGHT NOW. *scribbles*

Now, when do we get to see the COVER and your WEBSITE?

Claire Dawn said...

Date marked!

Hmmm, I think I need a spokesperson... Let's see now...

Carrie Harris said...

Thanks, everybody. Have some Windex.

Barry, I think the Ghost is a terrific Idea. It gives you a good Excuse to randomly Capitalize things.

Jamie, you're on.

And the cover is official, Mireyah, just waiting for a clean graphic so I can show you both the cover AND the website! Yay!

Natalie Whipple said...

Woot!

Kimber said...

That sucks. I have to wait a whole year?! ;)

Bryan B. said...

I'm not sure if I ever told you this...

I met Richard Simmons once at a Wal-Mart. He was... shiny. And excited. That is all.

Carrie Harris said...

Yes, it's a year of waiting. But at the end, you will be rewarded with a hot guy, a geeky brother with a pseudo sword, and lots of ZOMBIE MAYHEM.

Bryan, I am SO JEALOUS.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Ha ha ha! Oh, my eyes...my eyes!!

Congratulations, Carrie! That's awesome news!!!! :-)

Cate Gardner said...

Marked on my calendar. I'm expecting Richard Simmons to pop out of my computer screen on THE day.

Rose Cooper said...

OMG! That was a freakin' funny post!!! Congrats on your release date--I can't wait to read. Yay!

Kelly said...

Whoa. Where in the world did you find the veggie covered Simmons?!

Squeeeee! Can't wait for next July! When I look for it in the bookstore, I'll know it's your book because Richard Simmons is on the cover, right? ;)
