BLACK FRIDAY'S DUBIOUS WINNER



Cheryl has won Saving Casey's
temporary face tattoos.



Jess says:
Actually permanent tattoos would be worse.
Liza says: Good point.


Cheryl has won the 2nd. worst gift:



If Cheryl actually puts these tats on her face, she will look approximate like this:



Can you imagine showing up to Family Christmas like this. Good chance the turkey would be dropped and Grams would have to be rushed to the hospital.

At least Cheryl didn't win the black lipstick. 
(I didn't think it very hygienic to offer 
used black lipstick.) 



Let's all say congratulations to the other people who entered the contest and were lucky enough NOT TO WIN.

Way to go girls!

And for anyone who missed my
blog- that's only had one day up
(Jess say's its funny)

Here it is:

SAVING CASEY IS AVAILABLE & READY
 TO BECOME A TERRIFIC
 CHRISTMAS PRESENT,
 FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS

I'm sure you are all nearly cross-eyed from all your web shopping. Thus, I'm going to try to make this easy on you in three clever ways.



1) LARGE PRINT for your tired eyes.

2) A VIDEO that will tell you about SAVING CASEY.

3) A GOOD CHANCE TO WIN a dubious gift that can translate into serious money. (MORE ON THAT LATER)



For your entertainment, I have an incredible, edgy trailer (created by Danielle Fine/Definition) that tells you about Saving Casey.



Just in case the web is so overtasked that youtube can't download....here's a large printed blurb.


Having been diagnosed with cancer, Cass Goldman decides to opt out of any futile medical care and end her life. While she has some thoughts on afterlife, she never expects to reincarnate into the body of a seventeen-year-old girl named Casey Davidson.
When she awakens in a hospital, Cass discovers two disturbing facts: One, she is now inside the body of a troubled teenager, and two, the former owner of this body committed suicide, but only Cass knows that. Everyone else believes Casey has survived, but suffered a complete memory loss. Cass has two choices: to take on Casey’s life and turn it around, or to confess the truth about her reincarnation and end up in a mental asylum. Given this second chance at life, Cass decides to take on the future life of Casey—the frightening ghoul-faced teen with short, black, spiky hair.
Every person around Cass has an ulterior motive and discovering the truth of Old Casey’s life is more complicated than the “new math” she is forced to learn in school. In addition, Cass has to contend with raging teenage hormones and the prior crimes of Old Casey, which she might not remember, but everyone else certainly does. However, her biggest frustration concerns her feelings for her father’s rugged security specialist who sees her only as a teenager and doesn’t want to explore the mutual attraction between them.
Will her second chance at life prove to be worth the struggles she has to overcome?


WHO SHOULD LIKE THIS BOOK?

Saving Casey will make a great present for 

young adults who get to see an adult try to walk in their shoes, 

parents who struggle to make sense out of their kids, and 

older people who would love to be young again with all their life experiences to help.

About the Author

I live in Denville, NJ with my dog, Jess. We hike in fabulous woods every day, rain or shine, sleet or snow. Having an adventurous nature, I learned to fly small cessnas in NJ, hang-glide in New Zealand, kayak in Pennsylvania, ski in New York, scuba dive with great white sharks in Australia, dig up dinosaur bones in Montana, sky dive in Indiana, and raft a class four river in Tasmania. I’m an avid gardener, amateur photographer, and dabbler in watercolors and graphic arts. Yet through my entire life, my first love has and always will be writing novels. I love to create interesting characters, set them loose, and scribe what happens.

HOLD ON LIZA, YOU PROMISED US A CHANCE AT SERIOUS MONEY....

So I did. 

So, my dubious gift is a set of temp tattoos like Casey's.


ARE YOU KIDDING? THAT'S THE WORST SWAG EVER!


Hold on. Here's a way (if you're slightly amoral) that you can translate the worst giveaway in the history of mankind into cold hard cash.  You put on the facial temp tats, then go to your family members and ask them to contribute twenty bucks each so you can get them removed. 

Please be conscious of everyone's financial situation, and do not take money needed for food or heat. If you do, God might punish you by turning these temp tats into real ones. Also you can expect scathing lectures to accompany the hard cash, and if you've an expressive family, slaps upon the head. 

HMMMM, THIS REALLY IS THE WORST SWAG EVER...
Perhaps, you can give these tattoos along with the ebook, Saving Casey, to someone. This will enable you to have something tangible under the tree. A unique, one of kind gift--a collector's item. I had these custom made for the My Crappy New Life videos. There are none other exactly like them in the whole world. 

I've included a Rafflecopter on the off-chance someone wants the tats either because:
1)  they are amoral and plan to scam their grandparents, or 
2)  they believe Saving Casey will become a best seller and they intend to sell the infamous tats on Ebay when that happens, 

In either case, here's the raffle box for you to enter to win Saving Casey's temp facial tats. Warning: If you enter, you stand an excellent chance of winning, so consider your next move carefully.

  2. Great trailer!! And what a good idea with the tattoos! I'm currently trying to buy some leopard print lip tattoos as presents - I might just have to keep some for me!

  3. Thank you. I expected to be stoned for offering facial tattoos. But it seemed appropriate since my book is classified as Young Adult, although Adults seem to love it a great deal as well. My book and I hate labels. Tattoos yes. Labels no. So don't expect me to give away labels as a promotion...ever!

  6. Thanks to all. Evidently four ultra strange persons wished to spend Christmas terrorizing their families by wearing facial tattoos.
