Writerly Deep Thoughts: Zombie Romance

Becoming a zombie is pretty rough, what with the being dead and then eating gross organs and all. I think zombies should develop the superpower to screw someone’s brains out. It would making getting dinner a lot easier for them, and what a way to go for their unsuspecting partner! But I really think they need to work on their hygiene first.

Writerly Deep Thoughts: Corrupt Documents

A text conversation with DH:

Me: I need a smaller laptop so I can edit/write during the 40 minutes I spend in the pickup line at school. The Beast (current laptop) is too big. He doesn’t fit between me and the steering wheel.

DH: Try my netbook.

Me: It uses Open Office, not Word. Going between the two corrupts my documents and I don’t want my books corrupted by anything but the sexy sex.

DH: O.o.

Newsletter, Survey, Unrelated Photo

Hi, everyone!

I need your help. I want to write one of those serial thingies in my newsletter, free for subscribers, but I thought it would be more fun (for me) if you participate! To that effect, I’m thinking of publishing the first segment and then asking for ideas/contributions for what should happen next. This would mean you can join in with writing a segment itself or just by tossing ideas at me that I put into words. Or at least telling me “I read it, please continue” so I know it’s not disappearing into the void 🙂

Here’s a short 4 question survey about it:

Dear Reviewers

I am sitting here today, tired and worn out after a couple tough family-crisis weeks, and my defenses are down, so I’d like to share something with you.

You probably don’t know me, because I haven’t been either notoriously awful or notoriously wonderful, but I’d really like for you to review my books. I’d like readers to read them, and I’d like readers who are inclined to review to feel completely safe in doing so. Without readers, I may as well spend my time crocheting penises or something.

I probably won’t READ the review, unless you, for whatever reason, specifically contact me and ask me to, because I believe reviews are for your fellow readers. Reviewing and conversing about books and stories is a Great Pleasure.

I won’t kill you off in a book. I’ve already got my list filled out of people I despise, and you’re not on it.

I will not hunt you down, cyberly or otherwise.

I will not subtweet about you and bestir my mob of fans (HAHAH) to snark on you.

I don’t have a street team, anyway, because the one time somebody suggested it might be a good idea, I asked if I could call them Wallace’s Street Weasels, and that venture pretty much ended right there.

I won’t tell all my editors and writer friends, should you also happen to be a writer, that they need to blacklist you or give you the cut direct.

My mom definitely won’t come after you because she, quite frankly, thinks I could do better. Except at cooking. She’s pretty happy when I do the cooking.

Meankitty won’t make a bunch of memes about how dumb readers are, although she does consider most humans pretty dumb.

Since your reviews aren’t shrimp snacks, she’s just all, “Whatever, human.”

If your reviews ARE somehow shrimp snacks, I think that’s amazing and you should patent it.

My excuse for this maudlin post is I’m dealing with some un-fun non-career life challenges, and I wanted to focus on something I like about being a writer, which is the chance to share my shizz with other human beings. Not in the stripper way, because I’m tap dancer, not a pole dancer, but in the words and ideas way.

Here is another thing I like about being a writer.

The fact that Kid2 is now in school instead of doing this to me the whole GD day. AND, now that she’s in school, she’s mad-crazy for reading. Just loves it! I don’t let her read my books, but you can, if you want and if you’re old enough, because some of my stuff’s kinda raunchy.

Sincerely,

Jody W.

Now Available: Disciple

discipleunicornhornOn sale today! During the holidays! All of you getting new ebook readers and devices, don’t you need something to test them with?

Might I suggest my substantial urban fantasy romance, DISCIPLE? This is no lightweight novella, folks. Not like, uh, its predecessor, TANGIBLE (still only 99 cents). Nope, it’s got all the thrills, chills, romance, sex, political intrigue, explosions, monsters, dinosaur chase scenes, cave-ins, narrow escapes and true love that you could hope for!

You were hoping for those things, right?

I would not hate it if I got enough sales that it wasn’t embarrassing to look at my Amazon rank.
