Gnome Attack Roundup: My Protest Has Little Effect on Gnomeo & Juliet Movie

Categories: My Writing Life.

25 million dollars. That’s how much Gnomeo & Juliet brought in over the weekend alone. I know what you’re thinking, because I’m thinking the same thing myself. I need to load my $%^&! shotgun and take a defensive position because garden gnomes are now emboldened and everyone’s chance of an attack is doubled. My attempt to protest the movie was, by all means, a bust (see pic below). It just kind of freaked a few families out, so I cheered myself up with a meatball sandwich at Potbelly. (Mmmm. So good.)

Coverage & Interviews:
  • The big AM station in Cincinnati, 700 WLW, re-aired an interview with me on Friday that was originally taped five months ago. A special thanks to WLW for saving lives.

  • How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack was one of the first books conquered by Suzi on her 2011 challenge of reading books.

  • My favorite actor has always been and will always be Michael Biehn. However, it appears I may just have a new second favorite: Colton Haynes, a younger actor with a cool name and a lot of TV credits like “The Gates,” “Look,” and more. Why, you ask? See his awesome tweet from last week:

I found this picture online here.
It’s just a nice reminder that you
are safe nowhere. Nowhere.

    Did you know there would be a gnome movie? Because we think you deserve royalties. At the very least, long live your killer gnome book – woot for extended shelf life!

  2. Karen Lange says:

    I have a feeling that your truth will prevail! It just may take some time to educate the public…

    If it’s any consolation, I would like to read your book, but have no desire to see the movie. :)

  3. Jen Zeman says:

    OMG! I can’t stop laughing at the picture of you protesting! That is classic. Sorry that the gnomes are being so "persistent". They’ll be toppled eventually.

  4. Lisa Lane says:

    You’ve done your best to warn them; they let down their guard at their own peril.

    Nice sign! There’s a store in that complex called Deck the Walls? Hahaha
