One Heck of a Good Day!

Today is a good day! First off, I've got something to celebrate Halloween, and it's not a guy dressed in naked baby dolls. (If this makes no sense to you, please see yesterday's entry. There is no need to call the men in the little white coats. YET.) Some of you may remember the short story I wrote last year called Nosferatu and the Nancy Boys. I love Nossie so much that I couldn't resist revisiting him this year. This year, Nossie's playing party games with ghosts over at Maurissa Guibord's Haunted House spectacular! Let me know what you think of it!

AND. If that's not enough awesomeness, you can now preorder Bad Taste in Boys on Amazon!

Ahem. Stop. You didn't read that last sentence right. For accuracy, you need to jump up and down hysterically and mash all the words together in a high pitched voice so it sounds kind of like YOUCANNOWPREORDERBADTASTEINBOYSONAMAZONEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Much better.

Anyway, this is a whole lot of surreal. Cannot believe it's really happening. Thanks for letting me share it. What good news do you have today? I needs to hear it!

I just pre-ordered my copy--woo hoo! I'm so excited for you, Carrie.

My great day today involves getting my kiddos together with my friends and their kids to see the Wild Oceans movie at the IMAX. It's heaven for a National Geographic nerd like me! Oh, and I get 4 hours of writing time tonight-yay!

I'm going to preorder mine tomorrow while I'm at work (It's too late at night to pull out my credit card at, bad things could happen). Can't wait to read it!
