Tag! I’m it — twice!


It seems I can’t turn around and write some fiction without you guys tagging me for things. I’m flattered by this; it’s a good feeling to be important. Just remember to bring your friends around for a visit or two — whatever it takes until they get hooked.

So, first off, Andrew tagged me with a new (to me) one: the goals meme.

I can’t say that I have between five and ten crazy goals or dreams I want to achieve in my lifetime. I only have one: to be a successfully published author of Trevor and his friends. (What? You thought I was done with these guys once Trevor’s Song gets published?)

Therefore, let’s turn things over to Trevor…

Five goals, Trevor Style
1. World Domination by ShapeShifter, of course. I mean, why else form a band? I didn’t need those wankers to get girls.

2. Get Rusty permanently out of Mitchell‘s life. Not to mention mine. Not in that order, though.

3. To love back every woman who already loves me. Maybe I’ll love her front, too. And sides; why stop when you’re on a roll?

Rolling’s fun, too.

4. To be called “Mr. Wolff” when I check in at some hoity-toity hotel, and not get eyed up ’cause they think I’ll trash the place. Why does everyone expect me to do the cliched shit?

5. Respect.

Ahh, poor Trevor. Above and beyond all else, he only wants one thing in life. Just like me; it’s our goals that are different, though.

Which brings me to meme #2. The way cool Amy Ruttan tagged me with my third Thinking Blogger Award. Wow! Three of them!

Here are the rules, for you newly tagged folk…

How participation works:

If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.

Optional: Display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.

Okay, time to tag some new friends…


This is loooooooooonnnnnnngggggg overdue, but it’s time to tag a few of my book blog friends:

Have fun, guys!

Oh, and lest you think the kudos have stopped there, just a reminder again… go vote…

And if you’ve missed it somehow, Just a reminder… go vote for me!

(So when do literary agents and publishers catch on to what you guys already know and give me THEIR awards in the form of contracts and advances against royalties?)

    What?! You want to be a published author? That explains a lot. :DBR/BR/World Domination, lol! That’s as good a reason as any to form a band.
