Oh, Boy

No blog tour this time. :cue collective gasp:

I know. This smacks against the very nature of book promotion, but, hey, you knew I was a maverick when you met me.

Captain Tank and First Mate Iko will be appearing at Ronda Tutt's blog on release day so you can read what they have to say about Mistress of the Stone. (Apparently, we have a difference of opinion on how the story should've gone.)

In the meantime, if you'd like to do me a favor and post the cover, blurb, or a very short tweetable excerpt, email me and I'll send you everything you'll need.

From me and my pirate dogs, big hugs and thank you.

Several months ago, I picked up this very ergonomic mouse pad. It has a most attractive male butt, the buttocks themselves raised and serving as a comfortable rest for your weary wrist. The buttocks are soft and malleable--I mean ergonomic. Not that I've sampled them (too much).

I wanted to offer this as a prize in some future contest, and what better opportunity than the release of Mistress of the Stone.

So friends, peers and naughty neighbors I give you the man-butt mouse pad (picture since removed) and a digital copy of Mistress of the Stone. All you have to do is mention the book (with the buy link) on Twitter, Facebook or your blog any day between August 28th and September 4th.

Aww, love the picture of your boys. You could send the info to me and I'll feature it on my blog!

And love the mouse pad. I actually need a new mouse pad for one of my computers. I had to steal my mom's as I'm too picky to buy one. This one sounds perfect! Nice butt and all!

Mike Keyton said...

Err...I'll happily cooperate - but spare me the mouse mat. It makes me uncomfortable : )

LD Masterson said...

I'm looking forward to hearing what the pirate boys have to say and of course, I'll have Mistress on, my blog next week.

I'd like to win that mouse pad just to see how my grandson handles it when he uses my computer. :-)

Angela Felsted said...

What an awesome way to promote your book. With the weight of a full moon. ;-)

Melissa McClone said...

Cute pirate pups!

I'll email you for the info on your book.

That mouse pad is hilarious. I don't use a mouse but someone could have fun with that. LOL!

raelynbarclay said...

HA! I love Tank and Iko. Just about spewed tea all over my computer over the mouse pad.

You know I'd love to have Mistress on my blog but don't enter me in the contest :)

Maria Zannini said...

Angelina: Thanks! I'll send something this weekend.


Mike: LOL! Why am I not surprised? Okay, no mouse pad, but if you win I'll send you something else. :)

Maria Zannini said...

Linda: I'm willing to bet the grandson will never see it. It's pretty provocative.

Angela: Hey, that's right. Maybe it'll be lucky for me.

Maria Zannini said...

Melissa: I normally don't buy stuff like this, but I couldn't resist. It was too funny.

Aren't my pirate dogs cute? Greg asked where I got the hats. I told him Photoshop. :)


Raelyn: Thanks. I'll send you 'da goods'. Tank and Iko make good pirates, don't they?

Damn, I might need to write them into a story.

Barbara Ann Wright said...

Ha! I'm in.

Angela Brown said...

Arrrgggh! Matey! Count me in!

Darke Conteur said...

LOL! I don't think I could have those out in the open!! :D

Maria Zannini said...

Barbara, Angela: Thanks! I'll contact you in a bit.


Darke: Honestly, I thought there would be more saucy women out there. LOL.

James Garcia Jr. said...

Okay, no matter how much I adore you, my friend, there's no way in Hell that I want to win, device. I don't even want it for my wife's computer! Especially not for her. If she's going to be touching...nevermind.
I will help promo in other non-winning ways, however. Send me the cover and I'll post it on my blog. I'm at rapture22 (at) hotmail (dot) com.
*shakes head* You're so funny!


Shelley Munro said...

Very cool pirate dogs :)
I've emailed you.

Maria Zannini said...

Jimmy: You realize you can't be there for your wife ALL the time. LOL. All right. If you win, I'll send you something less **cushy***.

Thanks for helping me out!


Shelley: Tank and Iko think they're very cool anyway. Thanks for emailing me! I'll send you something this weekend.

Romance Reader: And very spoiled too. :)
