PIMPBOOKMAMA here saying if you wear a "kiss the cook" apron this 4th of July while barbequing, ya better stock up on chapstick - I enforce fashionably binding agreements! And with that chapstick comment, perk on up to my newest headliner,
Tara Tyler, performing a little diddy she calls:
"My Summer Blog Tour of
BROKEN BRANCH FALLS".
I don't often read books with this style of...creatures, but only 3 pages in -
I was sold! It's completely lovable, witty, totally creative, and much more. What's the much more you ask? Pfffffttt...this Pimpbookmama can't give away ALL her star's secrets! You gotta read it to find out!
Or pay in dolla' bills...make it rain, baby, make it rain!!
TAKE IT AWAY TARA...
I've always wanted to do one of Tammy's Interviews! She comes up with the best, craziest questions!! Thanks so much for having me, woman!
1. If you were to swim in a pool of anything, what would it be full of?
2. Do monsters sleep under your bed? If so, can I pet them?
Monsters are under there, but they don't sleep. And they sure make a mess! Pet them if you dare. You can take one home if you like!
3. I'm drawing a picture of you writing, what does your facial expression look like?
Depends on the scene, but probably smirking – I crack myself up all the time =)
4. Honesty time! Empty your purse and tell me what's in it!
Too much to list. Here's a pic (it looks like my purse puked...)
5. I've a big fake tattoo for you, what is it and where can I stick it on ya?
A mermaid, definitely – on my arm. Watch me make her swim! (Brainstorm! This gives me a promotion idea - fake tattoo sleeves with book covers on it - I'm totally looking into that!)
And now...DOUBLE POINT CHALLENGE!!
Can you make a story with me? Let's check your writing skills!! Fill in the blanks!
Vaughn appeared in the moonlight reeking of beer. He'd no idea how pungent the smell was till the dog sniffed him and fell over. When Freda his little sister jumped out of the berry bushes beside him screaming, "Caught ya! Mom, he's been drinking again!" he almost had an accident. Vaughn, now shaken with rage, grabbed a shovel to scare her. "Don't you ever, and I mean ever, do that again!" "I was only trying to help," she said, tears spilling. "Besides, Mom's not even home, yet." So much for playing hide and go seek the six pack in the dark. Next time, I'll bring some Axe to cover up the smell. THE END!!
That was so fun, Tammy! You have a creative mind - I love it!
Thanks, y'all for joining the fun!
