Wrangling Kowalskis

I’m busy working working working. But I realized I shared a favorite snippet of mine from Ryan’s book on Twitter, but not here on the blog. You can see the personalities I’m dealing with over here.

“Lady, I ain’t a boomerang. You throw me away again, I’m not coming back.”
“You call me lady in that tone again, it’s your balls that won’t be coming back.”

And another tweet, this one from this morning:

If you need me, I’m wrangling Kowalskis. Tough work, but somebody’s gotta do it.

    Ack! You can’t just give me that little snippet and expect it to hold me over. I am going through Kowalski withdrawal…lol.

    I think I’m going to be a big fan of this book. Both characters have a fine grasp of sarcasm (my first language, by the way). Sarcasm? Snit? Such a fine line, really.

    Wrangling Kowalskis, {sigh}. It’s a tough gig, but someone has to do it, right?

    And I added your blog to my Reader feed, Tina!

    Thanks for the add, Shannon. I’m still getting used to this, but it’s a great outlet. Will you show up as “following”me or it’s that something different?

    Shannon, I’m going to have to start a special section on my blog to review your books. :) I’ve already mentally cast Joe, Kevin, and Sean on goodreads. Can’t wait to meet Ryan and hear more about Mitch!

    Yay, Maggie! I’m not a writer who uses real people when they write, though many do, so I love hearing how readers see the characters.

    Tina, I’m not sure if you can see it or not. It might just show as a subscription, but with no details.
