Book clubs, trailers & pull-ups!

Book club at the Spinecracker! Starting today + Win a book!
Whether you loved or hated Mind Games, this is your chance to go dish and download with Jessica and others, and you could also WIN a signed copy of Double Cross! No, I don't have any copies yet, but the winner'll get one once they become available.

Book club at Literary Escapism - started August 30th and on now...
Also open to anybody, and it's taking place in LE's chatroom! Details here. Should be a fun and lively conversation with lovers of all things UF-fy. These book clubs look like lots of fun, but....
  • FYI: I don't lurk on book clubs, so feel free to say whatever you please. I won't peek! 
My big wicked-freaky book trailer
Okay, not so wicked. I had one whole high concept trailer that I slaved over (and my husband partly starred in it!) but it didn't work out. After I was done I hated it! I guess I'm a writer, not a movie maker.

But, I am getting back on the trailer horse and working on a different angle. I want a cool trailer like everyone else! I'm feeling good about this new one which should be done in a day or two. Also, I might repurpose the other one for a secondary trailer, but with a whole different spin.

THREE gnarly ass pull-ups!!!
Check it out! Do we see three pull ups on the progress bar? Oh yeah! Only four weeks to get to five pull-ups. Cue the Rocky music. No, not the Rocky Horror Picture Show Music!!!

Dancing cucumbers in a book trailer is all that you need. And have a cucumber do a duel with a kabob. Great 30 seconds right there.

Dang, three pull ups?!

And then do you freeze in place on the pull up bar? It's COLD!

I missed the beginning of the pullup thing somehow, but congrats!

I recently read in the NY Times (therefore it is fact, lol) that you should be able to do a certain number of push-ups in order to safely catch yourself if you fall, i.e. without breaking a wrist or collar bone. The number is based on your weight and age. I've got to do 16. ... My dog thinks the process of struggling through this is hilarious. But that's only because she doesn't know yet that the article also said that you should be able to run a mile *in any weather conditions* to be able to outrun an attacker. Take that rain hating dog!
