Ezmerelda's Week in Review 6.8

Buenos Friday, again! As you can see, I have been very busy this week! And—

Shan: Wait a minute. Ezmerelda, what the hell are you doing?

Ez: I’m making the announcement about my book.

Shan: You’re supposed to recap my week and announce my books.

Ez: I’m tired of it always being about you.

Shan: And, by the way, that is the worst cover I’ve ever seen.

Ez: Your graphics program is called Microsoft Paint, chica. I can only do so much.

Shan: And the title? Hearts A’Giddy-Uppin’? What the hell is that?

Ez: You seem to be forgetting I am your muse. How would you like to spend the next week writing really shitty haiku?

Shan: Fine, just get it over with.

Anyway. To celebrate the release of our book, Taming Eliza Jane this coming Tuesday, I will be sharing my ever-so-romantic western short story based on one of my personal experiences.

Shan: What personal experiences? You’re a Guatemalan worry doll.

Ez: I’ll start, shall I?

The foolish author
Has no respect for her muse
She never shuts up

Shan: ::grinds teeth::

Moving on. Although my book has no back cover, I’ve composed back cover copy to entice you.

On the run from a cruel and sadistic employer, Ezmerelda braves the western frontier. When her stagecoach is attacked by bandits, she believes all hope is lost…until she sees him.

Long, lean and hard in the saddle, Chance had his heart broken when he was a mere boy, so he will never, ever, ever love a woman again. But when he happens across a stagecoach robbery and his gaze falls on the fiesty little Guatemalan worry doll, his heart starts giddy-uppin’. He’s determined to keep her.

But there are storm clouds on the horizon, because Shannon’s coming…

Shan: Are you kidding me? Your cover copy’s almost as bad as your cover.

Ez: Next haiku’s about the generous abundance of your ass, chica.

Shan: Get ON with it.

Okay, so come back Monday for part one of Hearts A’Giddy-Uppin’ by Ezmerelda!
