Stoves Make Better Whiteboards Than Refrigerators

Who needs expensive graphic designers? Not Miranda July. Lest you think I'm being sarcastic, I'll say it right out: I'm not. She's provided a site that made me laugh, kept me reading, and at the end, sent me to the Amazon link for her new book, which I shall be buying. In pink, I think, since yellow makes me look a bit sallow. (you'll have to read the site to get it, sorry)

Some of the pages are a bit hard to read because a word or two is lost in the flash reflection. Her handwriting could be a bit neater (says the former elementary school teacher). Other than that, I found it witty and silly and fun. These are things that I look for in books to read, too. I'm going to give Miranda's a try.

PS, Thank you, C. Montgomery Stuart, author of "The Rescue" found in the latest edition of Coyote Wild, online magazine of speculative fiction, for pointing me to the site.

I'm going to a conference this week - I may not post much. Then again, the new scenery might be inspirational enough to overcome the jet lag.

I thought that was a clever and amusing bit of promo too. I hope it works out for her.

Lemme know what you think of the book. I might buy a copy. Yellow though. Pink clashes with my eyes.

That was great--only problem was my wireless connection was acting all cranky and I kept timing out so I didn't get through the whole thing. But I'll come back when it's feeling less tetchy. What a clever way to promote a book!

Have a great time at the conference.

Best author's website ever, I think... :)

I loved it. So did Miss Snark. :) That was a fun, silly read.

Frank - I guess we'll have to find it in a bookstore to make sure we get the right color - I don't know that Amazon gives you the option...
Thanks Crabby - I did have a nice time. Busy but in a fun way. Great networking opportunity, too.
Glad you liked it Thumper!
Hi David! It's great to see you here - I will be wandering by your blog soon, lots of catch up reading to do this weekend!
