So, last weekend I spoke on my first ever panel at the LTUE conference. The thing I said that got the best reaction was when I told the story about happening across a tweet that said, "And then there's EVERNEATH. It's like they're not even trying anymore."
What can I say? People like to revel in my pain. :)
I did meet these three boys, who just happened to be born with birthmarks on their cheeks that just happened to be in the image of my book cover.
|Jared, Jackson and Matt|
And since it was the LTUE conference - which is heavy on the sci-fi and high fantasy - these boys were still the most normal looking people there. Even with the tattoos on their cheeks.
I had to stay overnight one night, but I knew my kids were in good hands at home with the hubby because he texted me this series of photos:
|Kid B, wondering why he can't see better with his homemade glasses|
|Yep, those are donuts. And he's pulling a Princess Leia.|
|All ready for school! And the possibility of a flash flood.|
I know they are legit, because here is their very professional email:
"Dear, Mr. Ashton, Here are the latest cupids to respond to your plea for love. Their names are Farah and Mira."
I responded to their obviously personalized email by saying "I'm all in. I have complete faith in your ability to match me. You have 24 hours to find me true love. But first, just for fun, let's aim for men."
They responded by saying, "Okay, Mr. Ashton. Whatever floats your boat."
I'm very excited about my prospects.
