Susan Speaks: I’ve Escaped!


I’m so sick of Blogger refusing to acknowledge that I’m not a spammer (I’ve filled out their “take another look and convince yourself I’m right” form six times now. SIX.) that I’ve escaped and gone to visit other spots on the Web.

First off is a visit to my good friend Breeni. She decided to do a bunch of Halloween-themed books and like the usual non-traditional thinker that I am, I stumbled onto something pretty horrific. Go check it out.

And secondly is an interview I did with J. Kaye at her Book Blog. It started to be about my Win a Book blog, but I mentioned something that I probably should have shared with you guys first. And that’s that I’ve got a neat little book coming your way. Go read all about Win a Book (and add it to your reader!) — and my neat little book. After all, you guys asked for it.

There will, of course, be more about it soon. A LOT more. Breeni’s so excited about it, she’s decided to be my publicist. I hope you guys share her excitement.

So that’s the news. I’ll resume my mantle of Queen of the Not Spam Blog soon; Trevor needs to have his say about Banned Book Week, don’t you think?

(oh, and do I have some cool shit to share!)

    If Trevor were to read at all, I have no doubt it would be a banned book. Sadly, I think many would disappoint him. Few really live up to their “dangerous and corrupting” hype.

    Ya, blogger tends to piss me off sometimes too. The downside to the web is some companies no longer feel the need to offer ANY customer service. And to find help on blogger is IMPOSSIBLE. If it’s not in the FAQ page then they simply won’t answer the question. That’s it, end of story. They have no way for you, a mere mortal, to ever actually contact them. Oh well, at least it’s free! 🙂
