The Ghost Downstairs is officially released tomorrow! Very exciting. But apparently Amazon's already shipping the paperback to people, so order right now if you like. Barnes & Noble probably is too. If it's the ebook you want, wait a day. Don't worry, I'll remind you. Also keep in mind that by ordering it you can win a Sony eReader.

In the meantime, my mom whipped out a poem for the occasion in probably two minutes flat. She's eccentrically talented that way. Here it is in its silliness for your enjoyment:

Looking for excitement? There's
A great book called The Ghost Downstairs!
'Tis witty, scary, not pedantic,
Spooky, eerily romantic!

You think you've met attractive men?
They're all fools compared to Ren,
Who was a houseboy way back when
They had such things upon the scene
At old Tri Delta in Eugene,

But now have mostly disappeared -
Unless they turn up, sad and weird
Doing things most unexpected,
Hope the guy gets resurrected-

OOPS - don't give the end away!
Better order yours today!
(The author's name is Molly Ringle -
Sorry, guys she's wed, not single.)


Thanks, Mom. :)

I salute your mom's attention to meter - much rarer than mastery of rhyme alone.

I'll pass along the compliment! In my family, writing verse with clunky meter, or filks that don't scan, is something of a misdemeanor.

That is awesome. Guess we know where you got your talent from. *hugs* Congrats hon. I've definitely got it on my "must buy" list. I even hinted at hubs that it would make a spectacular birthday pressie for yours truly.

Hee, thanks. (Ooh, pretty icon! Next time I have an empty Chanel bottle I'll use it for a vase...)

Sometimes it's easy to see where I get my goofball qualities...
