Second, do you find this picture as amusing as I do?
And last but not least, today is the paperback release of a terrific first novel, The Liar’s Diary, by a remarkable author named Patry Francis. Patry is currently focusing her energy on healing from an aggressive form of cancer, and has had to take a step back from promotion and marketing activities. So it is a very, very cool thing that a community of more than 300 authors and bloggers have joined together to help spread the word about her novel, which Publisher’s Weekly calls, “A quirky, well-written and well-constructed mystery with an edge.” For more backstory, click over to Susan Henderson’s LitPark. For more on Patry (or to wish her well), visit her website or blog. You can buy the book online at amazon, barnes & noble, powells, or you can also buy directly from Penguin to save 15% (enter the word PATRY in the coupon code field; click ‘update cart’ to activate the discount). Many thanks! (Ah, can’t you feel that good karma?)
