Annette Lyon: Forgive Me Please

by Robison Wells

So, Annette Lyon has a new book: Tower of Strength, which is the fourth in her series called Books About Temples and Pretty Girls. You should totally GO AND BUY IT.

In other news, you may have recently heard a lot of hubbub about a movie called Watchmen, which is based on a graphic novel. (A graphic novel is a pretentious comic book.) You may have also heard that otherwise respectable authors have released graphic novels: for example, Shannon Hale's Rapunzel's Revenge. Consequently, Annette Lyon, ever the trend-following hack, has decided to release a graphic novel as well. (Due to a very small art budget, the graphic novel isn't very long.)

Annette's ghost writer was Spencer McKay.

You know, I wondered if that was Spencer! He has such a distinctive voice.

Wow. I think someone needs an internship desperately! =)

Bet you had some fun with it, though.

I almost peed my pants laughing so hard!

That was chilling and amusing at the same time, somehow.

You have a gift. Possibly one that should be re-gifted, but a gift nonetheless.

Pretty funny. Wonder what Annette thinks.

I'm laughing my head off over here. I think Rob's some kind of genius. Not sure WHAT kind, but a definitely genius.

Wow Rob, now I don't even have to read the book, your graphic novel says it all....well, Okay, so I actually do want to read it.

And now I'm going to have to go read abotu Lizzy, Hannah and Maddie too. You evil, evil blogger, you.

Hee hee hee! That was awesome!

Very nicely done Rob! Thanks for that. LOL!

I really need to be careful about Rob's posts. Thank goodness I read this tonight, because I don't dare read these at work. I am pretty sure there is something in my employee manual about "laughing till one cries" being against company policy.

Oh man, I'm laughing. That was awesome. :-D

I think something is very wrong with Brother Wells.

I'm going to tease the graphics department next time they put a woman on a cover who's looking down...

Simply awesome, Rob!

Rob, you crack me up . . . or maybe it's just that you're on crack. Hilarious!

Okay, better than cookies. . . great entertainment! I'm very impressed with how much mileage you were able to get out of 4 book covers!

Rob, Rob, Rob. Sometimes a mother can only shake her head and sigh. Or laugh out loud. Great Post!

So funny!!

Bethany sounds like the LDS version of the Bride of Chucky! Hmmm. . . where does Rob get his inspiration? Awesome! Laughing my head off. I needed that today!

The first LDS graphic novel! (And FANTASTIC to boot.) I'm printing it off, getting it autographed, having it nicely framed, and auctioning it off for the Whitney Scholarship Fund.

Who wants to start the bidding?

Rob,
Yes,indeed. Very funny. Now...here's the question. Why is it that male book cover counterparts never look longingly at the ground?

I see a shiny new career for you...
...and maybe a new Whitney category?

Thanks for the laugh!
