Dear Powell's blog readers,
Hi! Welcome to my week-long guest blogging stint. I don't want to take up too much of our time here by talking about my inexpensive paperback book And the Heart Says Whatever, available wherever books are sold but obviously also via Powell's — I mostly want to talk about karaoke and post photographs of my cat — but I did just want to mention quickly that if you're curious about how part of this book sounds as read aloud by me, and you're not going to be able to make it to any of my book events, you can download a FREE audio chapter here. One highlight: I do a great imitation of a cat vomiting about halfway through.
Sooo. This Powell's gig marks my triumphant return to daily compulsory blogging; it's been a while! I used to work for Gawker, but that was three years ago so I'm sorry if it takes me a moment to get my blogging legs back. Hey, did you know that Sandra Bullock adopted a SECRET BABY? Okay, that should take care of search engine optimization. Just in case it didn't: Twitter! Oil spill! Stolen iPhone Times Square Car Bomb!
By the way, here is a cute photo of my cat, Raffles.
He's stopped vomiting as often now that I give him special kidney-maintenance cat food, but that stuff is expensive so please do go ahead and buy my book. I think that's all the guest blogging I've got in me today, but please make sure to check back tomorrow when I will be answering questions from early readers of ATHSW, some of which I will probably make up a la Edith Zimmerman. In the meantime, if you find yourself craving more of my blogging style, you can visit my main blog Emily Magazine, my "food blog" Things I Ate That I Love (where in the past 24 hours I have posted about an early somewhat obscure Velocity Girl single, the Fleetwood Mac Tusk documentary, and how to make biscuits (the oven temperature is more important than you'd think)). I also wrote a post about trying to quit drinking coffee which, well, clearly that's not going particularly well.
See you tomorrow!
