Hanging on 188th playing in Skype watching the girls craft my Amazon author bio (LOL)

OMG - they're hysterical (LOL). It all started when I logged into NaNoWriMo and realized I needed an author bio. I don't have one because I'm a newbie. I have an author page on Amazon that hasn't launched yet because my Editor has me on deck for January 2012. In anticipation we've been building and coding new websites and at some point TannStarr.com and CarolynTannStarr.com are going to be completely destroyed and refurbished (evil grin).  

According to Jen, this is now my official Amazon author bio and first book acknowledgment when we launch the Kindle page:

 

Author bio:

 

I am a frustrated lunatic in a writing asylum who took a nap and woke up with the cartoons in my head still speaking. I dreamed a strange dream that turned into a mini movie in my subconscious that wouldn’t shut up until I wrote it all down. Every now and then one of my characters rises up from the grave of my dormant imagination to let me know I missed a spot of ghostly gossip and since we’re chatting they have something else relevant to say that I need to take some notes on When not engaged in ghost-noggin-voyerismo, photography or being a brazen blogaholic, Tann-Starr can be found chasing the wee people, periodically driving her husband Michael crazy, painting portraits, making music, doing Tai Chi, playing laser tag and habitually hanging out in coffee shops with her gun toting snarky gal pals fiending after really good books to read over sugar, chocolate and caffeine.

 

Acknowledgements:

 

God has a wickedly delicious sense of humor: HE unleashed me onto the world and saw fit to put stellar social media friends on a collision course with my creative projects resulting in a team of fabulous mentors, editors, critics and proofreaders to keep me from spiraling completely out of control. Yes, it is controlled chaos with me running amok and a set of keepers cracking their virtual whips to get me back on-line and working. You all know who you are and I LOVE YOU ALL DEARLY. Especially for not killing me when I gave you motive and you had multiple chances to hide the author’s body. May God bless you and keep you all sane for the next bit of writing mischief and may my a$$ stay above the virtual grass another writing day…

The girls are taking a vote. OMG - this is now my official Amazon author bio and first book acknowledgment... I have a really cool team of people working for me so I tend to do whatever they say. I can't believe they wrote that (LOL). This is going to be mad fun... Will keep you posted on the next bit of mischief. They are dressing me up for an author photograph in a couple of weeks. I have to go get my hair done and "look professional" (silly grin). I was thinking of showing up in leather motorcycle gear and giving them heart palpitations (evil grin). Dude, I'm writing a paranormal/mystery/thriller with a wee bit of sex and real estate spoof and goofs... I gotta have fun with it. ;-)

Margaret, isn't that a hoot? Having snarky gal pals take over your author marketing is mad fun (LOL).

Margaret, I have to see if I can move an appointment. There's a bunch of NaNoWriMo writers throwing a party at the "No Idea Bar" I already promised to attend. It's our kick off party so I really need to be there for the new authors meet and greet (sigh).
