Introducing Beth Williamson

Beth “Batty Wonder” Williamson says:

My current level of insanity is hovering around a 6 to 7. With my day job, trips, edits, deadlines and just daily life, I’m walking a razor sharp line to the looney bin. 🙂 I work as a technical writer during the day for a software company so it’s full-time (and it pays the mortgage). My career as a romance novelist is relgated to evenings and weekends – someday, of course, I hope it will be my full-time job. Right now it’s like running for the train and always being out of breath, along with constantly having to recharge my laptop battery. LOL!

Six to Seven?

And they call her Batty Wonder?

Let me tell you, six to seven is waaaaaaay low. It’s grounds for being put on probation, but strangely enough, she’s not been reprimanded by the Higher-Ups yet.

Hmm….but that may explain her superpower, which is not a sekrit at all if you’ve ever met her at cons. She creates Batty Situations just by the power of her….BattinessPresence. In other words, she spreads Battiness wherever she goes, keeping her own Battiness relatively low, though it is continuously being regenerated.

She wants to take pole dancing lessons (guess the stripping wasn’t enough for her)…and I worry for her teacher and her classmates. What if she causes the poles to dance instead of she and her classmates dancing with the poles?

She would be outed and dragged to the Lunatic Asylum…or worse to some secret military base. We would have to send the Insanity Posse to rescue her, and well, we don’t currently have enough members to mount a rescue. Not to mention, she might have accidentally caused the security systems to go Batty and then the base collapses. Hopefully not on her though.

So my good deed for the day is to sign people up for pole dancing classes. People who know of Beth’s real identity and understand the need to protect it.

And hey, you could win a download from Beth’s backlist and the complete collection of the Malloy bookmarks! And those bookmarks? Are pretty. If you collect bookmarks, you want them in your collection…trust me on this.


Introducing Annie Dean

Is Annie Dean as wild as James Dean was? Maybe. I do know her imagination is surely as wild and as hot.

But perhaps not as insane, since she claims that her Insanity Quotient is just six:

6. Between waiting for news on an impending sale, struggling for some peace and quiet to write while people tromp in and out, and the kids suddenly high maintenance pleas for attention, I desperately need a vacation. Not a family vacation where I wind up more tired than before we left, but a writing retreat. Where I take the trusty Ibook to a quiet spot and stay there for two or three days.

I feel like I should maybe ask one of her blogger friends whether this is the truth. Six is very low for members of the Insanity Posse. I think the current average is about 8.75. Maybe we should do something to up it, just so she’ll fit in better…

But it’s not nice to be mean to superheroines like Annie Dean. She’s so brave, she does the superheroine thang as herself. No hiding behind a silly pseudonym–or so she says.
I did try to get my hands on her superSekrit superheroine file, but that ruined two of my computers (they exploded!). I think maybe she’s hiding something. Like a pseudonym. And what she tells me is her superSekrit superpower.

Or maybe she isn’t really a superheroine. Hmm… This idea has possibilities. I mean, her Insanity Quotient is a mere 6.5!

So, discuss! Is Annie Dean aka Ann Aguirre a superheroine…or is she not?

Boys and girls, though I suppose it’s mostly girls, we have a guestblog, a contest, an excerpt and possibly a review of her first Ann Aguirre title, Stone Maiden, coming up. This time, I’ll even remember to post the copyright notice.


The Jennifer Estep Round-Up

First, we meet Jennifer‘s alter ego: Jellyfer Extra-Alcoholic.

I tried to get her drunk on her Amaretto Sours, but Jellyfer can’t get drunk. I did manage to talk her into offering us an excerpt of Karma Girl anyway. 😉

Then she tells us what it’s like being a Published Author. Ask her questions!

And she wants to know what YOU are reading!

Finally, there’s Alliteratively Yours: Bigtime. Because as we all know, I love alliteration. 😉

Remember to comment on the What you’re reading post and on one other post to be entered for both contests. 😉
