You know what else is insanity? Creepers who message you on Facebook. You might have seen a few of my responses to these people, but I’m going to post all of them here for you today. Surprisingly, none of them wanted to be my friend after I returned their messages.  Odd.

Things I Learned at Wicked Book Weekend


After certain book signing events, I like to compile a list of things I learned over the weekend. Usually these things happen after copious amounts of alcohol and there are always things you might see show up in one of my books. So, without further ado, I shall impart my wisdom on all of you.

1. Jenn Cooksey and I are old and quite possibly deaf. What was ACTUALLY said by my BFF, Liz: “Do you have a drink ticket?”

1796461_365835600221012_291851580_nWhat we heard:

Us: “Drain ticket? What the fuck is a drain ticket? Like ‘draino’ ticket?”
Us: “Drain ticket? I don’t understand the words coming out of your mouth.”
Us: “Train ticket? I saw them in concert, they were pretty good.”
“Drops of Jupiter in her hair, hey heeey-hey-hey.”
Us: “Dream ticket? Poof! Have a good dream with this ticket!”
Liz: “You fucking idiots, DRINK TICKET!  D-R-I-N-K. DRINK DRINK DRINK!”
Us: “Drain, train, dream!”

2. I can go from completely sober and just wanting to go to sleep, to screaming, dancing and being hyper in 2.3 seconds flat.

3. I can also go from drunk yelling and dancing to fast asleep in 1.4 seconds.

4. Random drunk girl spilling out of a taxi in front of the hotel is always hilarious. Especially when she starts petting your best friend’s hair and then screams “CHEESECAKE!” in between mumbling incoherently.

5. When Jasinda Wilder tells you to eat a pickle, you eat that pickle and it will change your life.








6. When a father comes to my table, talking on his phone to his daughter and says “Are you sure this is the right author? She seems kind of crazy”, I will do whatever he asks because that is just plain awesome.

7. When that same father asks to buy Chocolate Lovers for his FIFTEEN year old daughter because I’m one of her favorite authors and she loves that book, I leave the word ‘vagina’ out of my dedication and pray he doesn’t flip through the book.

8. Recreating The Titanic scene on the bow of a booze cruise boat is as awesome as it sounds.

9. I lost a toenail in Florida last year and almost lost my entire foot this year. Florida obviously has it out for my left foot.

10. Spilling an entire beer down the front of me during the signing did not deter people from wanting a picture with me. Beer crotch for the win.

11. Ana’s husband is so cool we now refer to him as The Gatekeeper and The Key Master. I don’t think it has anything to do with gates or keys though.

12. My Little Pony walkie talkies only work if the dick nipple on the other end remembers to turn hers on (DAWN ROBERTSON). Screaming into said walkie talkie “YOU’VE BEEN VOTED OFF OF WHORE ISLAND” will fall on deaf ears, but will still be fun.

13. Vibrator races are always more fun when you can scream about them through a bullhorn.

14. Squirrels in Florida are like tiny field mice. They make the squirrels in the north look like giant, mutant sewer rats.

15. When my BFF shows up in Florida in her frozen tundra-wear of a hoodie, Uggs and a coat that looks like a down comforter, she’ll never hear the end of it. Even if she just left the land of Idina Menzel singing the Frozen soundtrack every time she opened her front door.

16. Don’t order the lobster mac n cheese from the hotel unless you want your friends to think you’ve been carpet munching on dead zombies.

17. Photo bombing pictures is always a good idea.
