Announcement coming

I have a pretty exciting announcement to make too, on more of a personal writing nature. (Okay it's not the Whitney Awards . . . but then again what is?) The problem is I can't make it just yet, as we are getting some details worked out. So hopefully I will be posting later this week.

In the mean time, congratulations again to Rob and company for putting together such a great program. You rock dude!

Trust Jeff to end a blog with a cliffhanger:) I can't wait to hear your announcement!

Me, too! Or "me, either!" Or something. I hereby give you Friday, but I want details, man, details!

May I just announce to the general public (i.e. little people) that I, James Dashner, do indeed know every detail of said announcement, and hereby do say to all readers of the blog herein, neener neener neener.

Stephanie and Kerry, you are indeed elect women. James, you are a puke.

Jeff foolishly confided in me, and I've decided to spill the news. Jeff's starting a new small LDS publisher called "Mormon Cricket Publishing and Boutique". They specialize in LDS Kissy Romances, and manufacture LDS Fiction themed scented candles (for example: Stephanie Blackberry and Caramel Blair).

"What the LDS market needs now," Jeff isn't quoted as saying. "Is another publisher--one that focuses strictly on mushy, kissy romances. Take our first novel for example: 'Dakota de Toqueville is a wealthy young American diplomat stationed in Corsica, who suddenly finds herself called as the Enrichment Leader in her small branch! For her first activity, will she choose Esteban, the tall, dark and handsome Spaniard with a flair for dutch oven cookery? Or Nick, the Mediterranean casanova who teaches small engine repair? Find out in Enriched by Love!."

Jeff, you stole my book idea. See if I ever let you edit for me again!

Rob, that was hilarious.

If I publish with your company, will you let me leave the really good stuff in my novels? =)

Congratulations on the true great news!

Is it bad that I now want to read Enriched by Love?

At 6/21/2007 3:36 AM, Blogger Jeff Savage said...

Michele, you can definitely leave in the good stuff. In fact our theme will be "We put the lust, desire, and steam in LDS." What Rob didn't tell you is, he is actually the author of, "Enriched by Love."

When he first came to me with this idea, I was rather dubious that he could pull off a really steamy bodice ripper. But the man has hidden under a bed in a girl's room at a school retreat. How can you argue with that?

Plus he pointed out that I write mysteries from a woman's perspective. Why can't he write steamy romances?

You won't to miss his second book either. Here is just a snippet.


"Nigel, I had no idea you'd be coming to our break the fast supper. But what happened to your shirt?" Luthia asked as she eyed the Venezuelan’s ripped pecs through the rip in his white Mr. Mac shirt.

"I was studying my Gospel Doctrine lesson for next week when I realized my seven bean casserole was burning," Nigel said, running his fingers through his dark wavy hair. "With no time to find a pot holder, I tore off a length of my shirt."

Luthia tried to keep her mind on the supper, and the devotional she would be giving just before it, but her thoughts kept returning Nigel's great bravery and even greater biceps.

If he would go to that kind of length to save a pot luck dish, what would he do to save her?


Tell me Rob is not destined for greatness.

Wow. Rob . . . Jeff . . . I'm afraid I can't compete with scenes like that. I fear my days as a romance writer are numbered.

At 6/21/2007 10:37 AM, Blogger Stephanie Black said...

I'd like to pre-order a copy of Enriched by Love.

I think I just threw up a little in my mouth...

I think I just might know what Jeff's news is, so I've decided if I'm write, Jeff owes me $50 for not saying anything about it. I am a woman of discresion.

At 6/21/2007 2:30 PM, Blogger Jon said...

If Jeff's news is that he's going to relaunch his dot-com company, is there any chance he'll need a good SQL DBA?

Because, I, um, know someone who'd like that. =)

(I could hazard a guess or two on what the actual announcement is, too, but the fake ones are much more fun!)
