Blurb Is The Word

I know this isn't fair, but I am closing the contest a day early. Because I'd like us to move on to step two and vote for the best one! Your suggestions were ALL so good, seriously. They just blew me away. You guys are so complimentary. I have my favorite picked out. But I'll let you cast your vote too. (But remember…the blurb doesn't need to carry a theme of “Jenny thinks she's fabulous. And if you're not sure, just ask her.”) So if any of these are too self-boasting sounding…save me and don't vote for them. ; )

Vote on My Blurb
Where Sassy and Crazy Collide
Real life. Real laughs. Real love.
Wit. Sass. Truth
Bringing sassy back.
A smile in every book.
Putting the funny in fiction

As good as those suggestions above were, my favorites, were of course, the honorable mentions. Those not quite ready for prime time.  Such as:
1. Jesus is my co-author.
2. Me and Jesus. Cold chillin'
3. Jesus has a sense of humor too.
4. Making teens and women pee their pants.
5. Practically pithy in every way. (so tempted to use this.) (Do you guys get the Mary Poppins reference? Do you KNOW how much I love Senorita Poppins?)
6. You have to grow up. You don't have to read like it.
7. More flavor packed than a pint of Ben and Jerry's.
8. At least there is no vampires. (submitted by our token dude, Dan)

You have Monday and Tuesday to vote. Winner announced Wednesday.

In case you missed my visit with author Nicole O'Dell on Teen Talk Radio, you can still here all the excitement HERE in the archives.

I stole this from someone's Tweet, but have you seen this? I'm in love. I want a minivan.

Is that not awesome? When she said, “Where my mutha fathas at” that is SOOO not what I thought was gonna come out of her mouth. I think that whole campaign is brilliant. (You can watch them all on YouTube.) It's hard to convince anyone that a minivan is cool. Other companies have tried. And failed. I love how they're not even trying to here. They're convincing you your life is still cool.

To wrap this up, I'd like to say a BIG congratulations to Chip MacGregor of MacGregor Literary. His son and daughter-in-law have welcomed a beautiful baby girl to the family. Blessings to them all. The literary world will now be referring to Chip as Gramps. Gramps MacGregor.

Finally, pray for our planet. Every time I turn on the news, I just want to throw up.  The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will and is affecting the world.(I have yet to be able to sit through a segment on the animal and wildlife devastation.) God help the people of Louisiana. God help us all. We have screwed up. And we have screwed up good.

Now vote!
JEN

I had a hard time voting because I kept wanting to combine the top two: Where Sassy and Crazy Collide with Real Life. I voted for the Where Sassy and Crazy Collide.

That is such a cool commercial. After 20 years with a minivan we are finally driving a Camry. No “cool” cars in the Thomson household, just practical.

I voted for number 3 but they really are all good. Thanks for the honorary mention.

I loved that video! That is so my husband and me. “No, seriously. Where are the kids?”

And concerning Gramps MacGregor–hasn’t he been in a few Scooby Doo episodes?
