Dumb Liza Kidnaps a Bookshelf.

Buenos Dias mi amigos. 
I've re-kidnapped Karen's bookshelf  because this tour  goes through Feb 28 so you still have time to participate...not here, but on Karen's blog. I'll give you the link to it later. First I want you to laugh a bit. It's good for you

If you remember, I couldn't find an author to kidnap...they've all starting locking their doors and removing the welcome mats. 

So I took up the dangerous occupation of kidnapping bookshelves.

Peep Rep: That's got to be the saddest thing we've ever heard. I'm passing out tissues...

This is Karen Y. Bynum's  bookshelf. She had three of them made by the talented Danielle Fine, but I chose this one to steal. 

Can you tell why I might have been attracted to this particular bookshelf. Was it the cute little fairy or the howling wolf?

Peep Rep: Given you always make your kidnapped victims promote Saving Casey before you release them, I believe you chose the only bookshelf that was capable of doing that. Unlike humans, bookshelves don't really care if they get kidnapped or returned. The other two shelves would not have promoted your book--not even if you kept them until they crumpled into digital dust.

Thank you, Peep Rep, for stating the obvious. Please stop talking down to my followers.

Peep Rep: In case you've forgotten. I represent your followers. I would never talk down to myself. I was talking down to someone else. Can you guess who?

Think carefully...


Liza: Here's some advice to anyone who's thinking about letting their followers have representatives to speak for them. 

Peep Rep: Nonsense, we are a wonderful addition to your methods to communicate to your followers. For example, we feel Liza has forgotten the purpose of her blog entirely and we will try to bring her back to it's purpose. Watch how adept we are at doing this:

Oh, Liza.Why did Karen have all these bookshelves built?

Liza: She has a Bookentine's Day Extravaganza going on from Feb 14-28. She presents the 17 books on her bookshelves in a unique way.

Peep Rep: How so?

Liza: Well instead of going on and on about a book, she made us be very brief and write a Haiku.

Peep Rep: You wrote a Haiku?

Liza: I think so. And I had to provide a one sentence summary of my book.

Peep Rep: That must have killed you.

Liza: Nearly did, yes.

Peep Rep: Are there prizes on Karen's site?

Liza: In fact, there are. The 17 authors are giving away a copy of their books away to three lucky winners.

Peep Rep: What are the books?

Liza: Saving Casey and...uhhhhh 

Peep Rep: How about the link so we can check it ourselves? 

Liza: That I know: Bookentine's Day Extravaganza

Peep Rep: All right followers. Let's all head over to Karen's blog.

Liza: Hold on! I want a bigger endorsement for Saving Casey.

Bookshelf Rep: I'll do it.
Buy Saving Casey. It's a fabulous novel. We've no idea how Liza wrote it. But she did and you'll thoroughly enjoy it.


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?

  2. Yeah, I misspelled something in that first post... Eep! *tries again* Yay! Love the post!! Bookentines Day is officially my fave holiday! :D

  3. Hey Liza you scared me for a sec. I wondered how you got a bookshelf when I didn't own one.LOL Someday, I'll have something for you to steal:) Great post.

    1. I don't steal, I kidnap. The bookshelf will be returned, eventually. Glad you enjoyed the post.

  4. Liza will you stop at nothing to promote Saving Casey--even kidnapping the bookshelf upon which it sits? Are libraries now locking their doors against you as well? But it was a nice way to promote the Bookentines Day giveaway. My book is on another shelf, apparently kidnap proof. Oops, I forgot. It opens with a kidnapping! Great, fun post as always, Liza.

    1. Thank you. No, I don't think I have boundaries when promoting Saving Casey. It's such a good story that even here, in my own comment box, I will take a moment to promote it. Yes, my initial objective was to promote Karen's blog. Yes, since I make all kidnap victims promote my book, your shelf is safe. I'm glad you remind me. Tonight would be a good night to compose my 5 star review of your book Only Scandal Will Do. See I am a shameless promoter of other authors very fine books too. Well I have a task to do now. Anything other than editing. I'm going mad.

  5. Buenos Noches!
    The books shelves are a great idea.
    i think Jenna has issued you a challenge-kidnap proof? Ha!

    1. No, she's right. I can't get her book shelf to promo me. So I can't kidnap it.

  6. I loved it!! I'll tweet once I'm off twitter timeout.

    1. I can believe you get put on twitter timeout. You are a twitter allstar.

  7. Hey therе, You have done an incгеԁible job.
    I will definitеly digg it and peгsonally ѕuggest to my fгienԁs.
