Guess what???
A. Martians have landed in my back yard and they’re pooping gold!
B. My 3 year old niece has just created the formula for the cure for cancer in crayon! Or was that cancer in crayons? Not nearly as exciting.
C. Her dog Molly insists on putting her nose in my suitcase and slobbering on my clothes.
D. I turned in the manuscript for my Nov 2015 book on time!  Er…assuming you add 2 months to my deadline.
Answer D!  And honestly a month ago the Martians were more likely. As for C, I managed to close the suitcase so poor doggie is foiled!
So after this miracle created thru hard work and coffee was emailed to my editor, I celebrated by…
A. Dusting my house from top to bottom.
B. I took a shower. Believe me, I needed it.
C. I went grocery shopping for something other than chips and chocolate.
D. I watched a marathon of a new TV show called Get off your Couch, you fat slob.
Answer: B. Yes, needed to bathe desperately. As for dusting? Hahahahahahaha. Grocery shopping? What do you mean? There’s nothing I ever eat except chips, chocolate, and coffee. And I get the coffee from the corner cafe. As for TV…I would definitely watch that show if someone created it.
What do I think of my new masterpiece?
A. What masterpiece? Where? Oh that thing I just turned in? Is it even coherent?
B. It’s brilliant. Funny, sexy, with some adventure and lots of heat!
C. I’ll wait to decide after the movie comes out.
D. I’m sorry. I’m in a Cheetos-induced coma. I have no idea what we’re talking about.
Answer: all of the above! Except D. I’m not a fan of Cheetos. I’ve been binging on left over Halloween chocolate. And there’s not really a movie scheduled, though a girl can dream, right?
And finally, you get to guess what my working title for this book is.
A. The Pig Book.
B. The {}*<€|€~><!| book.
C. The hot guy who loves me!
D. Title? Was I supposed to title it? Oh crap…
Answer: all of the above, at one time or another. But in honor of the pig who pees on the hero–forcing a lovely naked in the stream scene–I have indeed dubbed it The Pig Book. (And it’s set during summer, so no shrinkage!)
And now that it’s done, you get to see the cover of the next book. No, not the pig book, but my May book. You’ll be hearing more about it in the next few months. But before you see the cover, you get to guess what it’s original title was:
A. The Turkey Book.
B. The *@$#&(*&( book.
C. The hot guy who loves me!
D. Title? Was I supposed to title it?
Answer: Duh — A. Given the earlier multiple choice, this should have been a no brainer.
So here you go… the cover for FIFTY WAYS TO RUIN A RAKE by Jade Lee.
