Rosina Lippi is having a meme contest for one of my favorite books of 2006, Tied to the Tracks. I am automatically disqualifying myself from the contest because I boycott Amazon.com, but that doesn't mean I can't join in just for fun. So:

Five Reasons Why the Best Writers Come from Joren

1. When we're not talking, we need something to do with our hands.

2. Our HouseClans come to every one of our booksignings.

3. If you don't buy our books, we won't pilot your ships.

4. We are not afraid of traitorous humanoids, raiding reptilian slavers, or death. Publishing? Is a walk in the park.

5. If you insult our novels, we will declare you ClanKill, eviscerate you alive, and use your steaming entrails to decorate the threshold to our homes. So, would you like an ARC?

Tied to the Tracks
by Rosina Lippi. July 3, 2007. ISBN: 0425215326

"[This] is a hilarious, smart, sexy novel with a heart of gold." -- Susan Wiggs

"[Lippi] turns her buoyant creative talents to the romantic comedy genre with an effervescent tale of a trio of offbeat Yankee filmmakers plunked down deep in the heart of Dixie." -- Booklist

  1. Hilarious :) And now I need to know more about Joren.

  2. #5 is way too funny to read this early in the morning. I could wake up the baby. Must check out the meme rules, this looks fun.

  3. Ha ha ha, that's too funny, Lynn. I did one too, it was a fun meme.

    I love number 5. Although I came close to choking when I read it.

    Ah, the dangers of reading PBW at work.
