From THE CURIOUS CASE OF MARY ANN
Add a comment...

Pretty happy. The Curious Case of Mary Ann got a glowing assessment yesterday from the Unofficial Alice in Wonderland page on Facebook. I'm just waiting for the verdict now from the reviewer reading it at the Lewis Carroll Society. Fingers crossed.

While you don't have to have read any of Lewis Carroll's books to read it, I did put some extra little things in there specifically to tickle the funny bones of Wonderland fans. So it will be huge to me if it does well.

As Harry made himself comfortable on me, and tucked his paws into my hand, I told him how some cats won’t let anyone touch their paws. Or pet them in certain spots. Or smooch them up or cradle them and carry them around. And he couldn’t believe it. I’m pretty sure he thinks they’re missing out. #caturday

I'm leaving up the $0.99 sale on Amazon for THE PURLOINED NUMBER and TRYFLING MATTERS ebooks for a few more days since folks do seem to be taking advantage of it. If you haven't snagged yours at this cosmic low price, you'll want to blast off and do it this week.

Note to folks not in the US, the sale is proportionately cheap for you all, too, on your respective Amazon sites. Equal opportunity humorous sci-fi for EVERYONE! MWHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHHHAACOUGHCHOKEtakessipofwater...

I finally ate my “Eat Me” cookie from the Alice in Wonderland event I went to at the Carnegie Library.

It took me a ridiculously long time to do so, but it was so pretty and perfect when they handed it to me...And there was this weird moment that I felt like if you’re a fan and someone hands you the one prop you always wanted all your life to get to that world, you have to savor it a little. Or at least take a lot of photos.

Cleaned out and organized some stuff today so treated myself to play around with these little garden scenes. One’s outside and one’s in since it occurred to me the little teacups, chairs and cake might blow away. Need to figure out where this little directional sign is going to go. It’s very appropriate for plot points in MARY ANN.

I was at the movie theater, waiting for my friend outside the restroom with some boy of about eight or nine who was waiting for his mom. He saw my t-shirt. “What is that?”

“Alice in Wonderland?”

He nodded sagely. “That’s what I thought...” And then my adult cred went up. “Cool.” He considered it a moment. “Did you see the new movie? Alice Through the Looking Glass?”

“I did.” And I’m shocked this little kid is not only engaging me, a random adult, on a mutually friendly topic, but getting the details right.

“It wasn’t bad,” he said. And I could see this was another trial of trust I’d passed.

Now I have to know. “What did you go see today?” And I’m starting to wonder if it’s going to be some Cannes Film Festival winner and he’s only been humoring me to this point.

“A Wrinkle in Time.”

“What did you think?”

“It was sad in a bunch of parts. But overall I liked it.”

I left feeling like if this kid is representative of anything... given the chance, our future generations might be okay. Thanks, precocious kid at the movie theater for giving me hope.

Tickled by the Super Troopers themed 4/20 ad at Bar Louie.

I did just see Super Troopers 2, which was fun like the first one

Well this is an amusing thing to find... Someone has taken the text of a little bit of MARY ANN, put it into some kind of video game type character scene and had the computer read it aloud.

I guess technically this is my first fan art!
