Here in Dogtown, life continues to move along pretty happily.
Elvis Aaron Schwarz called me this evening. He knew I felt lonely.
|Hi! Remember me?|
I'm Elvis Aaron Schwarz.
When Janie feels lonely, I come to her rescue.
Elvis Aaron Schwarz invited me to visit him next week. I don't know what he has in mind for our time together, but I'll keep you informed.
Earlier in the week, I promised I would let you know what I've been up to here in Dogtown that's kept me too busy to post regularly.
And it's good news: I've had a part in the editing process for three books. Editing is the perfect job for the Queen of Grammar. The only thing that makes me happier than correcting punctuation is seeing Elvis Aaron Schwarz.
The first book I edited has been published and is available for you to purchase. It's the third in Melynda's series of "Nonsense" books. Each book consists of some of the best posts from Melynda's blog at Crazy World.
The newest book is called True Nonsense, and the very first story in the book is my all-time favorite of Melynda's posts. It's a story within a story when little Mr. P lets loose with "Three Little Piggy Hoe-ers" and it's hilarious. Of course, young Mr. P had no idea that "hoe-ers" and another word that sounds very similar might get some people confused and others amused.
"Once upon a time," he began in a sweet little five-year-old's voice, "There were three little piggy hoe-ers." At this point, I spewed soda out my nose, Phil about burned his hand off and both of the other kids stared transfixed at their youngest sibling. Trying to catch their attention to warn them to let it slide was just about impossible. The story continued and progressively made me pray none of the neighbors were in their back yards listening.
True Nonsense is available at amazon in a kindle edition or in paperback. If you choose paperback, you get Melynda's crazy sense of humor and my punctuation for the low, low price of $8.88. You also get a great cover photo of Melynda trying to run down Elisa with a lawn mower. The kindle edition of the book costs even less than the paperback, but I'm not a kindle girl. I like books I can hold in my hands.
When the other books I've helped to edit are published, I'll let you know about them, too. I hope more editing comes my way. Of course, I'm sure Nicki Elson will want my help with Four Elvises.
I, however, require only one Elvis for my viewing pleasure.
Infinities of love,
