  1. I guess I need to stop thinking I’ve heard it all and stop wondering what they will come up with next. :-p The baby seal is very cute. 🙂

  2. K.B. Owen says:

    Hi, Piper! Many thanks for helping me spread the word about my new book!

    As far as the alcoholics issue:
    Serious response: exploitative and irresponsible.
    Light-hearted response: just don’t let them do the line-painting on the roads. 😉

  3. Don Royster says:

  4. Lee S. Hawke says:

    Well, that’s… ingenious. At least they’re trying something new, even if it fails miserably.

    On another note, thanks for the great links. Had a lot of fun with Ten Things to Never Say to a Writer.
