18 Jan My Garbage Man Is Not Hot
So I had to steal (perhaps I shouldn’t use the word “steal” especially today on the great Wiki Blackout day (or I suppose I could look up how to write proper footnotes and all, but I’d have to Wiki that and that just brings us back to the original problem))
Let’s just say I borrowed the title of this post from an Amazon review by Kari J. Porter of Tawna Fenske’s new romantic caper GETTING DUMPED.
Now if you have been following my blog closely (and I don’t even want to know if you haven’t), you know that GETTING DUMPED was published by Coliloquy, a new digital publisher of active fiction, that launched yesterday with four titles.
Wait, I just realized I forgot to talk about the title of this post! That line made a lot more sense when I had about 4 more paragraphs in there that I cut out. But rather than un-cut them back in, I will just move on.
So I was reading the review, which was great (and 5 well-deserved stars I might add), and all about how JJ works at the garbage dump and finds mystery and mayhem and hot men galore, and then I got to the end and Kari wrote, “In case you were wondering, my garbage man is not hot.”
Which is so brilliant for so many reasons. First, because it’s freaking hilarious.
But even more than that, it’s why we read books like GETTING DUMPED in the first place. And MAKING WAVES (already out and available in all formats including print). And BELIEVE IT OR NOT (Coming this March in all formats, print too).
You get it? Because our garbage men are not hot. We need to escape from the not-hot men in real life for a little while and live the fantasy. Books let us escape.
And Coliloquy has served up some amazing technology that enhances the experience without fundamentally changing it. And that’s really why I’m so excited to be a part of this venture. And you can be too. You can choose to be. Get t? Choices??? That’s what Coliloquy is all about.
Ok, whatever. Just go read GETTING DUMPED.
But the cabana boy is hot, right???
PS-I think Tawna might be doing a Kindle giveaway on her blog so you should definitely go check it out! After you comment on mine of course.
