For everyone that has been eagerly awaiting, Take Me Tomorrow, Fiction Friday released a HUGE chuck of Chapter One, and you can read it today by clicking here. It includes fan art, inspired by that particular scene.
I also wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who came to the Facebook Event Nightmares, Dreams, Fantasies, and Visions yesterday afternoon. I had a lovely time speaking with everyone LIVE! But I especially want to thank author, Lisa Klass. Please visit her website to read excerpts from her novels, including her latest novels in the Baby Girl series.
Today, I wanted to have a little fun. A few weeks ago, I shared The Top 10 Seriously Awkward Conversations I’ve Had When People Hear I’m a Writer, and it got me to thinking about something else that I have happen to me on a regular basis. If you have a blog, then you know how the Dashboard page works. It delivers yours stats, tells you how many views you received, and even explains what viewers have Googled in order to find your website.
So I am sharing the funniest, strangest, and creepiest topics people have Googled to find my website, and I’m responding to them.
“hilarious bad attitude” – Does this describe me or something?
“twelve nerds” – Just one actually. Me.
“Shannon a. Thompson is a fallen angel” – Stop it. You’re making me blush.
“shannon tatum in magic mike” – I think you mean Channing. You must have been super disappointed when you found me.
“shannon thompson june 23 birthday” – Um…Yes. My birthday is coming up. Thank you for remembering. I think?
“pictures taken at the thompson house w bogart” – You really love my cat as much as I do.
“Shannon Thompson bikini pic” – Please. Don’t.
“real pussy needed in life.” – You…You are quite vulgar. So are you, Google.
“actors who end up working retail” – I’m not an actor. And I’ve never worked in retail. But okay. (Fun fact: I did work in a sport’s bar for four years.)
“shannon ann Thomason” – Shannon Ashlee Thompson? (Yes, “Ashlee” as in “Ashlee Simpson.”)
“shannon thompson had two kids by 18” – nope. I don’t have any kids. I just have cats.
“what we need in snowstorm” – probably a jacket. And a shovel. Maybe some apple cider.
“need to read the first paragraph of extremely loud and incredibly close by jonathan safran foer” – Ah! One of my favorite books. Here’s a link to Amazon to preview the novel.
“is there alot of blood and gore in looper?” – Toward the end, yes.
“can i write something about me in a blog?” – Yes, you can. You now have my permission.
“i told someone to follow their dreams” – You go! You’re the best!
Seriously, Google. I do appreciate the traffic, but why? I honestly don’t want to waste people’s time anymore than they want me to. (And – as much a I enjoy awkward moments – creepy moments are just…creepy.) I love blogging, and this is actually one of the aspects of blogging that causes a great amount of giggling. If you’re a blogger, do you have any moments like this?
