I really AM famous now :)

Current Theme Song (aka what's playing on my ipod right now): I Thought He Was A Goth by Vixy and the Broken Chimneys (Vixy Dockrey).


I have entered the high and literary world of all you high profile book bloggers, all you supercool types. Yep, as of yesterday I was offered my first book to be sent to me for review. I was tickled pink and humbled all at once. Such a pleasant email and so professional, I can't wait to read it. If it meets all of my criteria, you very well may see it featured here some time in the future.

But if that didn't propel me into the ranks of celebrity status, this certainly will. I have been contacted by none other than the daughter of the former finance minister of Sierra Leone. How incredible is that? She says she's in a dire situation and that if I just contact her, we can access her $18 million trust fund in Ghana and we can spilt it 70/30. I can retire, never write another book ever again.

Do you think I should send her my social security number to help speed the process along? I really do want that $5.4 million (or do I get the $12.6?). ;)

You know, somehow I really feel more accomplished in life now that I've officially received one of these emails. It was never on my list of things to do before I die, but I feel it should have been. I've crossed it off the list in any case (I've also run down the wrong way of an escalator, and that was on my list. And I did it in all seriousness too - it's a lot harder than you think). I don't think a former dignitary of a foreign country would be using a hotmail address for business transactions, or even a yahoo one (which is where it was sent from). Silly silly rabbit. But yes, don't you think this make it so I am officially "famous" now? :) Now, to just take over the moon...

YAY! What book was it? And many congrats on your email. I have been dying to get that opportunity for a very long time now. Well I guess we could always just split it :)

Yay thats awesome Heather! Can't wait to hear the review:-)

PJ Hoover said...

Funny!

Congrats and LOL. Too bad for that finance minister that we writers don't write for riches. Sure, riches are nice--but we don't need them--so it's so much harder to fool us with their lame identity theft/get rich quick schemes. :)

LOL

You know your big when you start getting these emails :)

Kate - The book is called The Taker and the Keeper by Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin. It sounds like it has a lot of promise. I'm looking forward to reading it.

Frankie - Thank you! If it meets my criteria, you will definitely be getting a review from me. :)

PJ - Isn't it though? :D

Shannon - I know. Too bad that I write for the love of writing. The funniest part was that she/he/cousin it wrote in ALL CAPS. That got an insta-chuckle out of me.

Juju - Yep. I've hit the big leagues now. Or at least, my email has. ;)

Congrats on your book blogging fame! I hope the daughter of the former finance minister of Sierra Leone gets through her troubles soon.

Heather Zundel said...

I certainly hope so as well.
