Can not exist without questions, ladies and gents!!! Send me questions! Karin@KarinTabke.com
I do have some exciting news to share though, my uber good friend, Edie Ramer, finalled in the American Title contest with her book DEAD PEOPLE!!!!! I read the first version and smiled while I read it (Edie has a wonderful sense of humor). She has since revised and it kicks more ass.
I’ll keep you posted on the contest front, I believe it launches in January.
Now, send me questions!
K* who is off to chop off more Viking heads!
PS, real quick, I have to share a funny with you. Last week I get a phone call from my mother-in-law who is an avid reader. She’s at our local BN.
Phone rings, Karin answers, “Hello.”
Mom, “Karin?” (she always does that, like who else answers my phone?)
“Yes, mom, it’s me.”
“Who’s that writer friend of yours who wrote that book?”
I pull the phone away from my ear, looked up at the ceiling, and rolled my eyes, then put it back to my ear and asked her, “Mom? If you had to hazard a guess, how many writer friends would you say I have who write books?”
She laughs and says, “Oh, yeah.”
“So? Be specific, which writer friend and which books?”
“You know, your friend, the one we had dinner with in New York.”
I had to laugh again because I know which dinner she meant and there were three of my writer friends. But she knows Allison very well, and is waiting with bated breath for her next book so I knew it wasn’t her, but I do know she gobbles up Rocki’s Bullet Catcher books.
“Yes! Rocki! Her, you know those guys she writes about.”
“Bullet Catchers, Mom. Her next one is NOW YOU DIE.”
“NOW YOU DIE? But the guy here said it was HIDE something. I read it already.”
I shake my head, I mean how hard is it for the clerk to really look at the computer? “He’s mistaken, Mom, the trilogy is FIRST YOU RUN, THEN YOU HIDE, NOW YOU DIE is the third one, it released last week.”
“Okay, I’ll go find it.”
She calls back. “They don’t have it!”
“I guess they sold out already. Good for Rocki! Did you order it?”
“I did, now I’m coming over there to get something to read in the mean time.”
She knows my to-be-read pile is towering. She depleted it a bit.
I love my mil. 🙂
