The man was on the shortish side, with dark hair, bushy eyebrows, and dusky complexion; he was also wearing a suit, which at a bookstore surprised Greg a little. "I know this book," he said, picking up a copy of Retrograde Maneuvers from the unsigned stack. "You wrote this book?" Italian accent? French? Slavic? Greg couldn't quite place it.

"Yes," he said, smiling. "You read it?"

"This is a very dull book," the man said.

"Oh," said Greg. "Sorry..."

"Very dull," the man repeated. "A sex scene went by and I didn't even notice it, that's how dull it was."

"Um," said Greg.

"You should write more exciting books. They would sell better." The man casually tossed the copy of Retrograde Maneuvers back in the general direction of where he'd picked it up, and walked away without another word.

"Next time I'll add some tigers, shall I?" Greg said to the empty space where the man had been.

Most assuredly. A story without tigers is like... Like... A WHOLE WORLD without tigers, and just imagine how terrible that would be!

Assuming I have a tan still, I know what I'm going to say next time you release a new book. I just have to remember to bring a suit (though you didn't say what KIND of suit) XD

Hey, none of my published books are dull!

The Perfect Warrior -- Has revenants, midnight martial arts battles on moving trains, and a last-minute rescue by Cammy!

Childproof the Unicorns -- Has faeries, dragons, swordfights, and startled pookas!

La Vida Panthera -- Has tigers! And lions! And cheetahs!

Love Bites -- See La Vida Panthera.

Orange Alert -- See La Vida Panthera. Plus the only pieces of The Class Menagerie in print.

Tough Breaks -- See La Vida Panthera.

Dull books? Me? Nevah!

I know, but it'd still be funny, especially since there's no sex scenes. Er...are there?

Plus, they DO need more tigers XD

Eh, I don't consider Heavy-Duty Snugglebunnies necessarily sex, per se ;-)

Well, why else would it be behind a plaquard?

It could be nekkid snugglings.

"Next time I'll add some tigers, shall I?" Greg said to the empty space where the man had been.

And thus, The Suburban Jungle was born.

Some days I feel like that, and I'm not even published. :C

Childproof the Unicorns btw is awesome. :D

Feeling a bit frustrated with public response to your books?

Have the best
