"I'm going to write a novel someday." Have you ever noticed
the amount of people who say that? And have you also
noticed that people never say "I'm going to star in a novel
someday"? Why do you suppose that is?
I'm Angie DeLaura. I "star" for lack of a better word in
Jenn McKinlay's cupcake bakery mysteries. Mel and Tate,
my co-stars, and I tend to think that starring means we do all
the work, while she the writer goes off gallivanting to Texas
to sign books. She being author Jenn McKinlay.
And where does that leave us? Well, let me tell you, it leaves
us with no ending to book three DEATH BY THE DOZEN.
I peeked, so I know. How can she just leave us with no ending?
She assures me that she'll get to it when she gets back.
Excuse me? You'll get to it? Humph! Not that
I'm a prima donna here or anything, but I sort
have some love life issues that need to be resolved.
Ahem. Oh yeah, and there's a dead body or two
that need some explaining, but don't you
worry yourself about little old me and the
dead bodies. Oh no, you just go have fun
with Wendy Lyn Watson,
Maggie Sefton and Hannah Reed.
Hey, I wonder if they've left their stars hanging.
Excuse me, I need to go text Tally Jones,
Kelly Flynn and Story Fischer and see if we
need to send a character posse to Texas to
kick some author butt!
Oh, and if anyone feels inclined to nag on my behalf,
