But the dog has become a celebrity, and Stu’s dream girl needs the pup to meet a publication deadline she was obligated to by her arrogant and controlling fiancé. Continue reading “Saturday Book Showcase: Triple Dog Dare”
As you know, April is Mr. Pish month at Indies Unlimited. If you don’t know that yet, you do now. In any case, the novel Triple Dog Dare was inspired by the adorable pooch, so we thought we’d invite one of the characters, Lars Lundgren, to stop by for a chat.
Since Lars has a way with the ladies, we decided to keep this interview on track (not to mention PG-13) by having the Evil Mastermind himself make a rare appearance. It wasn’t easy to get the EM to come out of his bunker, or to get Lars away from his mirror, so please, pay attention. This is history in the making.
Yes, that’s right. Bob Hammond here once again. You all know me as a bestselling author with a larger-than-life personality. That’s right. My reputation precedes me.
That’s why I have to say, while these folks here at Undies Unlimited sure do have their hearts in the right places, I finally have to put my foot down. On them. You see, being an “Indie” doesn’t mean it’s okay to sit around in your underwear writing. No sir. Writing should be done whilst wearing a suit and a tie. We’re professionals, you know.
So, I have decided to start my own web site to champion and pioneer the way for you little Indies. That’s right. I shall call it Indies, Limited, because there will be a dress code. Let’s class the joint up a little, shall we?
And to kick off the launch of this new site – which is typographically error-free, by the way – I’m pleased to announce the release of the first new book published under the Indies, Limited label! Yes, that’s right, I actually used an exclamation point. Because you need this.
Since I have published eleventy million books, you little Indies may have quite a conundrum on your hands trying to figure out which ones are best for you. Since they’re all so incredibly good, of course. So, to make it easy for you, Indies, Limited and I have put together a smorgasbord wrapped in a buffet pushed on a dim sum cart just for you. It contains the chapter ones of all my books, at one low, low price. We’re calling it Eleventy-Million Chapter Ones. That’s right. Each chapter one has a purchase link at the end of it so you can buy the book that pleases you the most. Ah, the brilliance of that idea. I bet the Undies people here wish they’d thought of it.
So hurry on over to my pioneering new website, Indies, Limited. But make sure you’re wearing a tie. We can’t be having ruffians running about in their underwear. You’re welcome.
Jennifer Cornwall is five-foot-two, over-nourished, with red, gravity-defying hair that makes her think she was conceived the day God invented the Koosh Ball.
At twenty, she’s trapped in a numb life at a photocopying firm. Uneventful – except for the workplace bullies. Despite her Aunt Emily’s gentle encouragement, she believes other girls have the perfect gene-take-home-pack with a side order of social skills, while she trips ’n dies at every turn.
When a striking new employee, Lucy, starts at work, Jennifer really struggles with her own mediocrity. Her flatmate suggests she finds some focus with the help of a clairvoyant. After misinterpreting the reading, Jennifer embarks on a wacky self-improvement campaign. She also discovers Aunt Emily has issues of her own and sets out to solve them.
It’s a journey through strengths, weaknesses and comical crises, but oh, what a journey it turns out to be … for everyone.
