Let's Play...

Let's play the "what Is..." game. I give you the answer, and you give me the question. Well. I suppose, technically, I'll give you both, but it'll be fun for you to guess as we go along.

So, first up: Worth it's weight in Gold.
...Answer: What is a block of sharp cheese? Well. Yes, but not was I was going for. I was going to say, a husband who not only gets this headline and why I might care... 
But actually brings the magazine home from the theater so he can show me and we can grin over it together. That's Twu Wuv....

Next: Not the Droid you're looking for.
Answer: What are any of the half dozen or so found in the bottom of son's Lego box, because he's after a specific one that came with a specific set...which he never actually received, so how he thinks he has it, I have no idea. But then, I'm just a weak-minded fool apparently susceptible to the most basic of mini-Jedi mind control tricks. (Oh. Here's something interesting. My computer knows how to spell Jedi better than I do. Huh.) And, I am also easily distracted. SQUIRREL!!!!

 And finally: Worth every penny they get paid and then some.
Answer: Who are cover artists. And I'll tell you why. Better yet, I'll show you. First, Anne Cain's work on my first Dreamspinner novel. "Better"  and next, the head of the Art Department over at Total E-Bound her work on the co-authored book "Tools of Justice"

lol! I think it speaks volumes to my distract-ability that I actually took the time to draw that squirrel....

You're right, you have beautiful covers! I'm always looking for new cover artists to make my publisher and authors happy, so I appreciate cover art with a different eye than some do. PS I didn't get that headline, so I guess I don't have Twu Wuv? LOL

He spotted it on the mag the movie theater hands out to kill time before the shows start, and he knew I would get a kick out of it. I'm just charmed that he thinks what I write is worth that kind of notice.

One camping trip, nearly every picture one of Charlie's friends took had a squirrel in it. Although it's been a good five years or so, we haven't let him forget it. (g)

Good cover artists are a must. No doubt about it. (g)

Ah, yes, "twu wuv" is mahvelous! And when I say twu wuv, the scene from The Princess Bride pops into my head. LOL

Allanah has a very gentle and compelling style of telling the story of a humble southern gentleman who never lost that charm with women and was always playful, gentle and affectionate with each woman he embraced. When there was also another side to Elvis; a self-indulged control freak who truly was the king of his world and his subjects adored and obeyed him. Hard to believe one individual could possess such magnetism. Something 'not of this world' carried Elvis through life. Amazing rendition.
