I am going to respond to two things that people wrote in my comments recently. The first being about my audiobook for Get Well Soon, for which I will soon be having a contest where you can win a copy of your very own! Fancy packaging from Listening Library and everything! But the question was about who's reading it, and the answer is the fabulous Mandy Siegfried. I really like the work she's done in the past with teen girl audios (she even reads Laurie Halse Anderson's Speak!). Hope you do, too! I think Listening Library was going to actually let me try out for the reader, or maybe they were just humoring me, but it was right around the time I got pregnant with Romy, and I didn't want to fly out to LA because I was all sick. Plus, they were probably just humoring me. Maybe not?
The second thing I have to respond to is my cousin Dan's comment about my obsession with the movie Deliverance. This was about ten years ago, and I don't know what I was thinking. How can anyone, particarly a twenty-something (at the time) female have an obsession with such a sick, man-centered horror story? Maybe I was really anti-male at the time. Or maybe my whole obsession was with the inbred banjo player (really, does that make it any better?), but I obviously tried to rid my brain of this memory because I completely forgot about it until my cousin brought it up in this here blog. Thanks, Dan. I may have some banjo playin' nightmares tonight.
In happier, poll-tastic news, I just updated my webpage. So please visit the Into the Wild Nerd Yonder page (where I still have to fix a technical glitch with the cover image) and take a quickie poll. It's fun and easy to do! No inbred banjo players allowed.
