Random Thoughts From An Avid Author

Swimming Upstream…and Other Random Pieces Of Useless Information

As the title states, I am at a loss for a GREAT blog topic today! Writer’s block? Yes, perhaps. Although, does that actually exists?

For those of you that still choose to read my rambling on such days, MUCH love to each of you.

I hit the “publish” button on The Gift of Fate today. Less than a week and I’ll make the huge announcement (and will release a super cool, utterly delicious movie book trailer). After months of bringing this bad boy to life, I am guessing that my brain shifted into neutral today after months of driving at the speed of sound for nearly a year. I can finally say YES, I am an actual published author. Whoa….music to my ears. I believe this feat calls for a Venti Soy Chai Tea Latte today despite the nearly $8 price tag…maybe a large chocolate chip cookie to go along with it.

For anyone who would like to do a book review of The Gift of Fate or an author Q & A on your blog, I am willing to send you a free .pdf or epub copy of my book in exchange for such. Or, if you are also an author who is longing for a review or Q & A, I am always open to doing the same for you. Just ask…I won’t bite. As long as I’ve had lunch first. 🙂

Here are your random pieces of useless information for the day! Enjoy every morsel.

Papaphobia is the fear of Popes.

Punctuation was not invented until the 1500’s.

Julius Caesar was self-conscious about his receding hairline.

One legend claims stealing someone’s shadow (by measuring it against a wall and driving a nail through its head) can turn the victim into a vampire.

Approximately sixty circus performers have been shot from cannons. At last report, thirty-one of these have been killed.

On average, there are 333 squares of toilet paper on a roll.

Leonardo da Vinci could write with one hand and draw with the other at the same time.

  1. Woo-hoo! I’m stoked for this! I’m looking forward to reading the book and writing my own review, but I’d like to support you by buying a copy.

    Did I mention I’m stoked? *cheer*

    The whole “interview” question is rolling around in my brain right now. There’s something very pleasing about this notion! Hmmm.

    1. You are TOO sweet, Deb! Seriously…..you are a doll!

      I am really excited. Not to mention, it happened on Leap Year! Who would have thought? Pretty cool. I feel very blessed today….especially for friends like you. Hugs!
