I read it for the articles, I swear

Don't think for one second I bought this for what's on the back cover. No sirree, not me. I bought this one for the articles.

(a; an; the- to be sure, but articles nonetheless)

Graham Brown's BLACK RAIN is on sale today. (smelling salts not included)

Oh.My.G! Um, I think I have the hero of my next romance novel all picked out now. Rushing off to place an order for this. Strictly for research purposes, of course.

Rosemary said...

Whoa.

Pamela Hammonds said...

He'd sell more copies if the covers were reversed, IMHO. Wowsa!

Piedmont Writer said...

Holy Garbanzo Beans Batman!!! Is this guy really an author????

Sarah said...

Your posts never cease to make my morning Google Reader rundown worthwhile :)

Working Stiffs said...

I understand he's a nice guy, too.

Sigh.

Aimless Writer said...

Hell, I'd buy it for the back cover!
Okay, the book looks good too.
Great cover art. I'll read!

Christina said...

*Dies Laughing* I think that might be the funniest thing I've read in a while.

Hey from one girl to another - No one can blame you for that one. :D

Sharon Mayhew said...

Ummm, is Graham having a book release party? I'd like to go to that one. :)

Rebecca Knight said...

I'd go to that author signing :). *sigh*

Sophie Littlefield said...

So this is the crazy thing - the guy can actually write. I mean crazy good. And not only that, he's got a really terrific sympathetic female character and she's strong without being bitchy, and brave and smart and interesting. And I don't even know the first thing about science - I'm amazed when my car starts or coffee comes out of the coffee maker - but I was completely glued to the book. And *then* it gets all Indiana Jones, but back when Indy was *good*, like when you really cared that he didn't get smushed by the stone wall crashing down. They're all running crazy around the place trying to escape unspeakable death and suddenly it's time to get the damn carpool and you just want to pull your hair out.

That's how good it is.

Marsha Sigman said...

Hellloooo there.

Suze said...

Whoooosh.... I'm with Pamela on this one... great suit ;)

Malia Sutton said...

I'm having impure thoughts now.

Karen C said...

You, um, read it for the articles? Not the dangling participles?

Jay said...

Wow. I think I need a makeover.

Angie said...

Even if you bought it because of the back cover, who would blame you? That is one mighty fine lookin' author, I must say!!!!!

Yummy...

Angie

CKHB said...

Yeah, that's a little bit of all right.

Lucy Woodhull said...

... and I'm off to write "I Stalked Graham Brown and All I Got Was This Lousy Book Deal."

It'll be fiction. Uh-huh. That's the ticket, fiction.

rissawrites said...

hmmm? I'm sorry Janet, did you say something? I was too distracted to read actual words.

Yum

Just when you thought you found a profession where folks are not judged on their looks...

skyblast9 said...

Whoa BABY!!

Bpoelle said...

I am weeping with laughter at this. WEEPING. Ahhh, man. Okay, here is the thing...the book is SO SO SO GOOD! You will love it. I promise. hhahaa, but keep this coming because I am DYING over here.

Kim Kasch said...

That's unfair sale's tactics.

Ronda Laveen said...

If you don't buy it for the back side, I will!

Suzan Harden said...

Thanks, Janet. Now I have drool all over the keyboard.

Lesli Richardson said...

Who CARES if the book's any good or not!!!! *LOL*

*le sigh!*

:)

lora96 said...

OMG Pierce Brosnan could play that guy's UGLY brother in a movie!

Sarah said...

I was completely entranced until I read his bio. He's clearly all looks and no brains. Pilot, lawyer, and health care executive?

I mean, really...

Questionable intelligence aside, all the best to Graham on Black Rain's release!

stacy said...

All I can say is . . . damn, baby.

stacy said...

I've put the book on my wish list. Too bad he doesn't come with it.

Richmond Writer said...

Hmmm, I predict an American Idol for Writers tv show.

We all sit at our computers typing away, is it the fastest typist or the best looking?

Loved the dangling participle comment... :)

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

Oh, my goodness.

The book looks good, too. Sophie's description seals the deal.

Deep River said...

Harumph.

Shelby said...

woooooooo.. like it.

Miranda said...

How does he get his hair to do that?! ::swoons::

Mystery Robin said...

WOW!

lexcade said...

rowr. my new fave author. ;-)

pegasus358 said...

Is he for rent?

Amy Kinzer said...

Oh jeez... Now I'm going to have to go out and buy this book.

I'm fickle like that.

JS said...

Holy Younger Pierce Brosnan, Batman!

Big Red said...

Not to get in the way of everyone's swooning and rending of garments, but Graham is actually a really awesome, funny, super-intelligent and HUMBLE guy. And I probably just made his night by texting him the link to this blog post and comments. :)

DebraLSchubert said...

Cold Shower Alert! Holy Moses, Janet. You should really warn people before they scroll down. (I'm forever in your debt.)

Southern Writer said...

*stunned speechless*

Mary Miller said...

Mama likey! He can use his pen to sign my book anytime he wants. Nudge nudge - wink wink. No really I'm married but he's hotter than Georgia asphalt!

Marina said...

I have only one thing to say: PHWOAAR!!
