I Want to Photobomb You
I love that my readers like to play along when I do ridiculous things, but this time non-fiction author Janet McHenry gets the ridiculous award.
See, I spent the weekend at her house, teaching fiction for the Sierra Valley Writing Retreats she hosts, and I gave each of the attendees a copy of my romantic comedy, Husband Auditions. We had a fabulous time, taking a few fun pics, and she suggested taking a picture of herself reading my book with me in the background.
We got a good laugh out of it, and I shared it to my Facebook group, joking that people should replace her face with their own so I could photobomb them all. I didn't really expect them to do this:
My agent even played along, making one for each of her kids.
It wasn't until after she put all the work into creating these that she realized she'd cut off my thumb. So I decided to make it easier for everyone to let me photobomb you. All you have to do is click here, and stick your face in the hole. (Will probably have to use your computer rather than your phone for this.)
Of course, I'd much rather photobomb readers in person, and I got the opportunity to do so during my layover on the way home. A couple of author friends met me in Orange County for brunch and the beach.
Here I am photobombing Michelle Massaro, whose recent release Hollow Places I endorsed.
And here I am bombing Sarah Monzon, whose award-winning book, Finders Keepers, I'm currently reading and LOVING.
Needless to say, it was quite an eventful weekend. I could have sent you a wish-you-were-here postcard, but now I don't have to. Just stick your face in this hole, and it'll be like you were there at the retreat with me and Janet!
Please share your photos in the comments below or post on social media, tagging me and using #StrongPhotoBomb. Post by next Monday, and I'll pick five of you to receive a free download of my book being turned into a movie, Finding Love in Big Sky.
