As you know, the All Things Dark and Dastardly anthology is going to be released this Friday, Oct. 21, 2011. We've had great feedback from our fans, and the excitement is enough to give us all heart palpitations.
Or maybe that's just really bad gas.
Anyway, the link to purchase the book will be up on Friday! Also, on Friday, we will be announcing the winner of our All Things Dark and Dastardly writing contest. We had great submissions, and it was hard to narrow it down to just one winner. The winning story will be posted on our site Oct. 31--just in time for Halloween! They'll also receive a copy of our All Things Dark and Dastardly anthology.
Now on to the topic of the day: A character interview with naughty Tony from Kaye George's fun tale, Color Me Baby Blue. You can find this story in our upcoming book, but here's a sneak peek in to the mind of a fashion savvy killer!
(This interview was taken in a hospital where Tony currently resides.)
MA: Can I call you Tony? Or do you prefer Anton?
**Are you kidding? For a babe like you? Definitely Tony.
Aren't you sweet? That is just a charming hospital gown you have on! I know you are in here partly due to your eye for fashion. What color would you call that exactly? Did you pick it out yourself?
**I call it baby puke green. What do you think? I have better taste
than this! Hey, isn't this new software handy, though? I can finally
communicate with people through my eye blinks. I've been trapped here
so long. Isolated.
That must be hard. Just let me know if you get tired of blinking so much. Tell us about yourself and your relationship with your Uncle Leo.
**He was a necessary evil. My stepping stone to financial
independence. He never liked, me, by the way.
I heard Uncle Leo was murdered. What do you think his final thoughts
were regarding the popular Dusky Brown line of clothes?**Ha. He knew he was so wrong. I could see it in his eyes.
It's too bad he realized it too late! So which show do you prefer: Queer Eye for the Straight Guy or Project Runway?
** You do know that those shows are so fake, right? I'm sure I could
design circles around those people. And you know that a lot of
straight guys, like me for instance, are just as good as gay guys.
Bunch of horse...hooey...if you ask me.
Calm down. You'll blink your eyelashes off! Let's try a different question. If you could choose one color to be buried in, what would it be?**Periwinkle. For personal reasons.
Interesting choice. Are you currently in a relationship with anyone? Is that even possible in your condition?**There is one nurse that has a great behind. Her front isn't bad
either. I'm trying to make a move on her. It's hard when you can't
I can imagine. You give "batting your eyes" at someone a whole new meaning. If there was one thing you could do differently, what would it be?**I think I could have done a better job with Miss Manning, Mandy her
name is. I came on a little too fast.
You think? I'm not sure killing someones lover would be called coming on too fast. Some people might call that homicidal tendancies, but whatever. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?**Maybe I should tell them that you don't have to talk really loud to
people who are in the hospital, or wherever the hell I am. Just
because someone can't talk to you, doesn't mean he's not human. He's
still a man.
Thank you for sharing that with us. I'm sure many people will be interested to know about the events leading up to your current...condition.
