I'm Gonna Eat You Suckah

Remember the owl who shows you how many licks it takes to get to the center of the Tootsie Pop?

He’s wrong. There are no licks. There are a cruel few seconds of chewing and then the stick is beheaded.

I bought a bag of Tootsie Pops knowing that we rarely get trick-or-treaters—we live on an unlit flag lot, behind several other properties—so I’ve been eating them. Or, rather, I’ve been doing a lot of chewing and beheading. 

Just reread that previous paragraph. I meant chewing and beheading the Tootsie Pops. Not trick-or-treaters.

Yes, I occasionally like to divulge personal information that’s completely irrelevant and potentially boring.

In writing news, I’m the guest novelist in world-famous author, speaker, blogger Patricia Fry’s blog series on novel writing. You can check it out here. Or copy and paste this link into your address bar: http://www.matilijapress.com/publishingblog/

I’m also quoted in her new book Talk Up Your Book: How to sell your book through public speaking, interviews, signings, festivals, conferences and more. Here’s the Amazon link.

In other news, I am in booth number 423 at the Women Today Expo this Friday and Saturday, November 9-10 at the Ventura County Fairgrounds. I’ll have copies of my novels I Murdered the PTA 
and I Murdered the Spelling Bee
and my novella Thrift Me Deadly, which was a Fabri Literary Prize finalist.

I’ll also have note cards by the wonderful photographer Tina Carlson who cleverly set up scenes using purses from The Vintage Purse Gallery, and some cool original bumper stickers.

What I won’t have is Tootsie Pops. You understand.
