Gnome Attack Roundup: Free Book Giveaway With New Interview

Categories: My Writing Life.

I had a nice “writer moment” today in a bookstore. I went into a bookstore and spotted several Gnome books in the humor section, so I started to sign them. Then this mom & toddler duo walks up to the humor section, and the toddler grabs a Gnome book from the shelf. The mom takes it and examines it. I let her know that it’s my book; she’s skeptical. I say, “Really, it’s my book. Look on the back and there’s a photo of me.” Upon seeing it really was me, she was so taken aback that she had my inscribe a copy right there to someone for their birthday. It was just such a wonderful moment.

More Recent Coverage & Interviews:

  • On Monday, an interview with me will go live on The Traveling Writer blog. The blog, which is one of the few non-agent sites I check religiously, is run by Alexis Grant. I have asked Alexis to include a free giveaway of a book to a random commenter. The random winner will have their choice of getting either the 2011 Guide to Literary Agents or Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript, 3rd Ed. Here is the site URL, and the interview will be live Monday, May 9, 2011. We discussed plenty of subjects, but being that Alexis is an expert on social media, we spent a lot of time talking about how to maintain and grow a successful blog.

  • Writer Elizabeth Varadan recently posted a nice review of Gnomes on her site. See it here.

  • I am still in awe to see my name on the SlashFilm website, regarding news of Sony optioning my book. If you are not reading SlashFilm, you are letting the best movie-news website on the Internet slip through your fingers.



Never forget the danger that
gnomes present! They are killers.

    Something like that happened to me on Friday when I was in a bar just quietly minding my own business and enjoying a refreshing malted beverage after a hard week’s work and a lady came up to me and said, "Hey, aren’t you the jerk who dumped me on my birthday in college?" And I said, "No. Not me." And she said, "Yes, you are. I have a photo of us together. I’ve kept it with me for fifteen years just in case I ran into you some day." Then some other lady shouted out, "That jackass is the father of mah bay-bay!" A few more women chimed in with, "Get him!" and "Burn him!" and "Off with his testes!"So I exited the establishment. Didn’t finish my beer, either.

  3. Congratulations on your personal encounter! That has to feel pretty amazing.
