A Few Random Things...

I just realized that I never blogged about the interview I had on Better TV. But I'm doing it now. Back in February, Rhiannon Ally with the syndicated show Better came and did a piece on me. She was incredibly nice (as was her camera man), and I thought it turned out really great.

Also, I need to give a shout out to Kyle who runs the Coffee House on Main where we filmed this. (He's also on the beginning of the video explaining what a Monkey Mocha is). He was incredibly gracious letting us film there, and he's let me do about a hundred interviews there. He's a super nice guy, and he makes the greatest iced latte in the history of iced lattes. So if you're ever in Austin, MN go to the Coffee House on Main, order a iced latte with raspberry syrup, and give Kyle a really big tip. You won't regret it.

Here's the video for Better TV:

And I just found about this - There's a ton of cool stuff to bid on - from getting business cards made to a book autographed by Kristen Chenowith. All the proceeds go to help Heather, who's been sick for sometime. I urge you to check it out.

In fun news, Black Lab - the band behind the beautiful music in the trailer for Letters to Elise - is currently having a contest to make a video for the new single "This Ship Goes Down Deep" (awesome song, by the way). If you'd like to enter, check out their site for details: here.

Tomorrow, I'm meeting with people from St. Martin's Press, and we're going to be talking about things in regards to my books. I'm pretty excited. If I learn anything fun that you guys will enjoy hearing, I'll definitely pass it along. I do think I get to see some ideas for covers for the Trylle Trilogy for when St. Martin's releases it next year, but I can't really share that with you. At least not yet.

Oh, and thanks for all the Figaro and Delaney love on the blog yesterday. They appreciated it, even if they are fish and don't understand human emotions. Or English.

I'm ending with this song, which is my new favorite thing. I dare you to listen to it and not get it stuck in your head.
