Welcome to My Party!
The idea is for writers to answer a question in ONE sentence. They can then add a link to their current book (I start it off below to demonstrate). We'll continue with a new question each day until November 19th.
For attending the party, which celebrates the release on Nov. 16th of POISON, YOUR GRACE, the second of my Simon & Elizabeth mysteries, you can win in several ways.
1) All comments, whether author, reader, or some other form of life we don't understand, are entered in a daily drawing for a $10 Amazon gift certificate.
2) If you'd like to guess when my author copies will arrive at my home, give a date and time. (Again, release date is 11/16/11, and I haven't got them as of 11/12/11, so who knows?) Closest to the actual time I take delivery wins an autographed copy of the book.
3) Authors, I'm going to recognize the cleverest responses in a variety of categories: humor, uniqueness, creativity, and universality (that's the one that makes all the other authors say, "Oh, so true!" I'd like comments on which readers think are the best ones, but it's my blog, so I'm the final judge. ;)
So here's today's question:
What five things would your protagonist carry with him/her on a typical day, and where would those things be?
Simon carries an apothecary bag that, along with medicines like fox grease and toiletries like powdered rabbit head, often has elements of disguise like a wig, gobs of wax, and a cap to cover his hair.
