Let the Games Begin…


I’m gearing up…as we say in the South…for the MasterKoda Sizzlin’ Summer Book Launch Party…July 19, 2012 at 7:00pm EST…

Why…

Because…Bertha…and I will be joining our friend and fellow author…Madison Johns…along with her characters Agnes and Eleanor…from her latest book…Armed and Outrageous…as the guests of honor…

And we hope you will join us for all the fun…

You’ll have a chance to get to know the authors and characters better…play games…and win…prizes…lots of prizes…there’s even an all you can eat…virtual…chocolate buffet…guaranteed no calories…what could be more fun than that…

I’ll be telling you more details as the time gets closer…but…today…I wanted to introduce you to the characters…because…maybe I shouldn’t tell…but…there will be character trivia…and…you’ll want to win…trust me…on that…

Here goes…

The girls from…Armed and Outrageous…one’s armed and the other is outrageous…but…they keep changing roles…

Agnes:

72 year-old retiree turned sleuth after the disappearance of her granddaughter and now another young tourist. The widow of a State Trooper, Agnes formerly worked as a private investigator and is no stranger to danger…or love…for that matter…and she certainly finds both without any difficulty…reconnecting with her former boss, Andrew. If Agnes had a motto it just might be…why should I act my age when there’s so much fun to be had?

Eleanor:

82 years old but not forgotten…Eleanor is definitely up for adventure and refuses to let Agnes go it alone as she sets out looking for clues. Being plus sized doesn’t squelch Eleanor’s appeal to the gents which lead to altercations with a disgruntled wife or two…but nothing that a pocketbook swung in the right direction can’t handle. Also known to shoot a bad guy in the butt…Eleanor is definitely a force not to be reckoned with!

And from…Bertha-Size Your Life!…we have the one…thankfully…and only…

Bertha:

If you crossed Lucy and Oprah and dressed her like Peg Bundy you might just get Bertha…a zany redhead in lime green spandex and high-heels…she’s always up to something…positive that is…as she flings down-home wisdom and perky advice to anyone who will listen. She is frequently found standing on a soapbox or going head to head with the cat. But for all her Pollyanna ways Bertha does have a nemesis…Rita…who can and occasionally does bring her down quicker than a new daddy passes off a baby with a dirty diaper. Bertha is more than a book character…she’s a…character!

With that knowledge…you’re ready to play…Character Trivia…we’ll be asking questions…and…even if you haven’t read the books…you’ll have a one in three chance of getting it right…better than those multiple choice questions where there are four choices…

Here’s a sample question…just so you’ll know how much fun it is to play…

Which of our three lovely ladies do you think lost her teeth under the bed…I hear they came out furry…just saying…

Now all you have to do is…post your guess as a comment…and the first one who gets it right…I’ll send you a free Kindle version of…Bertha-Size Your Life!…just to get the party started…

Hope you can join us…

Jane

Oh…in case you’re wondering…Bertha…will be throwing out a few boas to some lucky attendees…

  1. I love this!

    Hmm, knowing that your hint says the teeth came out furry and Bertha has a cat… but is that too easy? Is Bertha old enough to have teeth to lose under the bed?

    I don’t know anything about the other ladies other than what you’ve told me here, so I am going to have to guess Bertha. Don’t be mad at me if I’m wrong! 😉

    • Ahhh…good try Lauri…but Bertha doesn’t have false teeth…but you’re right she does have a cat…or a cat has her! Thanks for trying!

      So…now we know…it’s either Agnes or Eleanor…which one?
