Saturday Snark - Snake Style

I'm always up for some snark. I am a natural smart-ass, so I'll join the fun of Saturday Snark. Hop on over to Marie Sexton's blog to get more info, and check out the great linkities below to other entries. 

The following exchange from Snakeskin Boots. (Did you hear it comes out October 5?)

Kim, my wereboa's best friend, has a question for him on the day his werewolf comes in to the bookstore where they work. Brad's looking for an educational book.

“Yeah, I’m looking for a book on the care and feeding of boas.”
Eggplant is on the tip of my flicking tongue, as my eyes travel south.
“Would trouser snake make you a cannibal?” Kim whispers behind me. Brad laughs as I whirl around, wide-eyed and turning purple. She doubles over laughing at my expense. “Sorry,” she giggles out through her tears.
“Break time!” I head off toward the back stairs, leaving the new best buds to their amusement.

Take a Break

You can't search for droids all day long. Grab a book, kick back, and take a break. You deserve it.

How Do You Eat an Elephant?

One bite at a time.

When you feel like you've bit off more than you can chew, just try to remember that. Don't let the size of the task overwhelm you. You can do it.

Just take it one bite at a time.

You're Not Afraid of Snakes, Are You?

Ophidiophobia:  abnormal fear of snakes

Look at him. Isn't he cute? He's even smiling. He's happy you stopped by.

I have a confession to make. I don't like snakes very much. Is it a phobia? Not so much. More like an aversion. I grew up way out in the country, so seeing rattlers curled up and sleeping, or slithering away, wasn't uncommon. I have a healthy respect for the critters. But to cuddle up with a boa? I'm not so sure about that. 

So what on earth would possess me to write a story about a were-boa constrictor?

It started on a whim. Just me thinking "No one writes wereboas. Why not?" That led to "What would he be like? What would he think of all this wolf worship going on?" And I figured out that he'd be kind of like me. Self-depreciating, sarcastic, and trying to take everything in stride. After all, he's a wereboa! Who would even think of such a thing?

Wanna Trade?

If you thought the Crazy Wind cover was hot, wait till you see these Zef trading cards I'll have at the GayRomLit Retreat next month. I'll hang onto the SuperHot Bobby Joe cards, so you'll have to find me for those. Who knows? Maybe I'll give you a little something extra for your effort.

See some of you there!
