It was from my editor.
She wants...I don't know if I can finish this. She wants a...a...a...PICTURE of ME for my back cover ASAP! Yes, that was me you could hear screaming. I was totally unprepared for this. I thought that I would have until at least, like, December. She asked if I could email her something immediately. Do you think the myspace profile picture that I took myself would work? Yeah, I didn't think so.
So even if she gives me until Monday (which doesn't seem unreasonable, does it?) That gives me until Saturday to lose fifty pounds, get my unibrow waxed, get the three zits on my neck and the one on my chin to disappear and find something to wear. I'm seriously freaking out.
I know this probably seems kind of vain. But I worked SO hard to get published and I really wanted the picture to be perfect. I'm so freaking out right now. I'll probably give myself a cold sore. Thanks for letting me vent. Now on to my witty movie and book review.
I get a lot of crushes (don't tell my husband) so I figured it would be fun to share them with you. Stephanie's crush of the week is a yummy boy by the name of Steven Straight. Steven is the star of the new movie, The Covenant. If you are in the mood for a dark, loud, action-packed movie chalk full of hotties, check it out. I loved it! Here Steven is calling me and I was all like, "I told you. We can only be friends because I'm married."
If you can't get out to the movies and still want a little weyotch action may I suggest Kelly McClymer's new book, THE SALEM WITCH TRYOUTS. It really is an adorable little read. I had a pic of her book, but I can't get it to load, sorry.
Have a great weekend and tune in next week for more on the continuing saga about my author pic. :)
