Come with me: This Saturday, July 20, Renee Miller is holding a Facebook Event to launch her latest book, The Legend of Jackson Murphy.
Now you might say, big whoop. Everyone has a launch. We all get out and cheer our friends and twenty minutes later we move on to lunch.
Not this event. Renee is a tall drink of water with a pit bull personality and good hair. She snarls, and swears, and bares her teeth occasionally, but she's also one of the funniest people I've ever met. She says all the things you wish you had said--out loud. She's a hoot!
Anyway, I don't want you to miss Renee's Facebook event. I mean it. You know I never send you off willy-nilly. Renee is going to have some serious swag at her event. Lots of people have donated books (including moi) and she has other cool stuff that you can fondle and covet. There's something to do with bees. bzzzzzzzz
The event is open all day so you can pop in when it's convenient, but the main show (and contests) will be on from 10am to 4pm (Eastern time).
So for my sake, (cuz I never steer you wrong) go add yourself to the guest list. I'll be there. If you don't already know Renee, I'll introduce you while I pass out the margaritas.
If you're on Twitter, Renee is using #WWJD hashtag.
Smart Girls Love Sci Fi: All this week, my buddy Charlee Allden is celebrating the 3rd anniversary of her blog Smart Girls Love Sci Fi. This Saturday, she reminisces about all the people who frequented her blog back in its early days. That includes me!
I'm not sure what she plans to talk about, but I'll be interested in reading how we met.
If you're an SF fan, you must include Charlee's blog. She has a whole team of people blogging with her now and they talk about everything SF (even zombies) in fiction, film, and podcasts. I'll update this blog when her post goes live, but I'll also include it on Facebook.
#%^*! Reader: Still having trouble understanding Feedly. I deleted all my posts...again! Apparently, if you hold down your mouse button over "All" too long all the posts do a vanishing act. Oy! Apologies again if I missed you. I swear I'm getting better though. I deleted everything only once this week.
Lost Dog: In unrelated news, I nearly rescued a rottweiler. I was driving into town when I saw a rottie in the middle of a busy highway. I was hemmed in but as soon as I could get away from the pack, I turned the car around to try and get him off the road. Unfortunately, by the time I got there, he had vamoosed into a pasture.
He looked so much like Tank. From what little I could see he was a big, older dog looking quite confused. All I could think was that if it had been my dog, I'd want someone to try and get a hold of him. I spent quite a while looking for him, but he was gone. I said a prayer for him and hoped for the best.
Losing Tank last year for 12 hours has left its scars. I wouldn't wish that grief on anyone.
Have you ever rescued a stray? Let's rescue Renee Miller this Saturday and then meet me over at Charlee Allden's blog. It should be fun.
