I had planned to tell you all about my new chainsaw (so dainty! for my ladyhands!) today and its effect on the Jungle Formerly Known As My Backyard, and then I was going to show you my new outdoor fireplance, and yes, those things are related.
I was going to do all of this right after I got back from observing Big Marshmallow get her Montessori on, but thirty seconds after I walked into the classroom, it became clear that the only thing I'd be observing was my child falling prey to whatever illness is sweeping the school this week.
So. No yardwork for me. Tea and toast for Big Marshmallow.
But for you, my dears, something excellent: a chance to do some holiday shopping (or self-shopping. I don't judge.), support an indie bookstore, and let an author buy you a beer. What is this nirvana, you ask? Why...it's Books and Beer! Read on for the details:
WHO: You! (Along with a variety of authors -- Jamie Freveletti, Linda Joffe Hull, Keir Graff, and me.)
WHAT: Multi-author signing! There's something for everyone -- a thriller to put in Dad's stocking, a signed first edition that Mom will always treasure, a witchy YA for your teen cousin and a middle grade adventure for the younger ones.
- Get 10% off all purchases
- A free beer when you buy at least one title from each author.
- I'll be giving away limited-edition Torn jewelry to anyone who buys the whole trilogy!
