Okay all, time to drag out the straw broom and tie it to the hellhound’s tail so we can clear off the dust and spiders from the front porch. I’d ask the Prankster Duo to do it, but that would result in legendary whining. Besides, they’d probably do the same thing, make the hellhound do it. In the meantime, I’ll see if I can get Knight in Slightly Muddy Armor to polish himself off (*snort* just realized how that sounded!) and add a little shine to his outfit. Maybe I can swing by Swamp Thing’s place and see if she has something that will cover up the stink from Eerie’s Zombie horde. If not, I’ll snag a few of Dreamer’s pretty flowers. Don’t tell her though–it might upset her if she finds patches gone from her garden. She does such an amazing job with those leafy things, I’m seriously impressed. Most of mind tend toward brown and flaky. No worries, we can blame Mischevious or the small gypsy tribe of brownies trying to pretend they’re not hiding in the Trecherous Forest.
Are you wondering at the burst of Spring Cleaning I’m embarking on? It’s because next week I’M HAVING A VISITOR. Yes, indeedy, instead of trotting over and posting on someone else’s blog as I’ve been wont to do for the past month and half, this time around, she’s coming to me. So who is it? It’s Alison Stone. She’ll keep you on the edge of your seat with her thrilling suspense novels with just a touch of heartfelt romance. I thought it was time we brought a little love and light into the Swamp–it’ll help make Dreamer feel more at home. Besides, Alison is an awesome writer–so I had to share.
So you must come back next week when she’s here. Bring your witty charm and fabulous humor and show her we’re not too backwoodsy here in the Swamp. Share the love and make her feel at home. I promise we’ll keep the Zombies penned up and Mischevious occupied with something shiny–that why she might come back.
Plus, if this all goes well, I’m thinking of inviting a few other friends to pop in every month. Especially since I really, really need to buckle down on Shadow’s Moon now that we have our release date for Shadow’s Soul (Book 2) on 6/23/12!
Just an update–I got three chapters in, had to start over, pulled teeth out of a snail, and now I think I finally know where Xander’s going to take us. You’d think by the third book the story should just merrily stroll along. Oh no! No, instead it decides to play hide-n-seek in the middle of a black hole. Never fear, I’ll take it down–one way or the other.
So until next week…
Be good but not too good!
