Please don’t send me to the slush pile! I’ve been good!

A temporary goodbye to the Little Blue Lady from Mars

PKO_Alien 3 0003387You are going to shove me into your hard drive and never look at me again.

No, I’m not!

I promise!

Alien Smile CloseBut I’m a rehabilitated alien! 

I made cookies last week and everything!

It’s not that.  Your interviews have been great. Hundreds of people have clicked on over to read them. I’ve gotten a great response—even when you’ve been abrasive, which is a bit odd.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Then what’s the problem?


Time is the problem.

Did you know it takes a few hours to do one of those interviews?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Ha!  You’re not doing anything.  I’m doing all the work. 

You’re just whining and complaining in the background.

Yes, but as much as I love you,

there is a little work involved in bringing you to life.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387So?


Well, I’ve got writing to do, you know.  I’m starting the sequel to Last Winter Red this weekend, and I have three books out to query now, and Fire in the Woods will be going to query in a few weeks.

Alien Huh CloseThey are more important than me?

Hmm. At the moment, yes, they are.  But listen, I promise to set up an interview for you at least once a month.  Twice once I get a little more acclimated to my new schedule, okay?

PKO_Alien 3 0003387[Sigh]

I guess I really don’t have a choice, do I?



PKO_Alien 3 0003387I’ll miss you.


I’ll miss you too.

But I’ll see you in a few weeks, I promise.


Alien SmileOkay. 

How about for the last Free Friday for a while, we give away a copy of “Make Believe”.

Great!  That would be awesome.

You know, the reviews for my story Last Winter Red in this anthology have been “off the charts crazy” good!  And several people have asked about more from the Last Winter Red world.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387Well, I’m happy for you, but not happy that writing the sequel means I have to go back into the hard drive.

Hey, I will keep my promise.

I even have an awesome author all lined up for April.

PKO_Alien 3 0003387All Right. 


Make Believe

Please bid the Little Blue Lady goodbye for a few weeks, and everyone commenting below will be in the running for an ebook copy (your choice of format) of the “Make Believe” anthology including my story LAST WINTER RED.

  1. Goodbye Little Blue Lady. I will miss your sharp witty and your evil intentions. 😉

  2. She was crabby and antisocial. We had so much in common!

  3. I’ll miss the Little Blue Lady! She’s welcome to blow up stuff on my blog any time:-)

  4. Give the Blue Lady a world to take over for awhile and then let her blow it up. She’ll be happy.

  5. Maybe you should let her blow up something for the next interview!

  6. Poor little blue lady. She does look heartbroken. Does she like chocolate?

  7. That’s so sad. And she looks so…blue…
    (Let it never be said that I disregard the low hanging fruit.)

  8. Too bad the Little Blue Lady doesn’t have a time machine to help you out! Perhaps the hard drive will be like a vacation?

  9. Ta ta for now, Little Blue Lady. Your snark will be missed!

  10. Goodbye Little Blue Lady! These interviews have been the best, Jennifer,, but I totally understand how time consuming they must be. Best wishes on all your projects, and I will eagerly await monthly interviews from our beloved alien beyond in the future.

  11. NOooooo!

    Little Blue Lady, you hang in there. Your faithful fans will deliver you from this blight!

  12. How will we survive without the blue lady and her interviews. I’d love to have a copy to send along to a publisher friend!
