I have a friend who is not only on a virtual book tour, but he claims he had a little bit to do with writing The Search for the Million $$$ Ghost, that you and I know that Heide AW Kaminski, Pamela Lawniczak and I had a little more to do with writing it than he did (but don't tell him or it will completely destroy his moment), but he's here today in a candid one-on-one interrogation - errr - interview at Boomer Chick.
I finally get my chance to ask him questions without him giving me the third degree, so I give you, Henri de Montmorency, the ghostest with the mostest, and co-author of The Search for the Million $$$ Ghost!
Boomer Chick: Thank you for stopping by on your virtual book tour, Henri!
Henri: Yeah, yeah, I hear that. So, what are you going to ask me? I’m in a hurry. Boo is waiting for me at Boo Drop Inn and I don’t want to keep him waiting.
Boomer Chick: Now, Henri, I’ve told you about being rude to your blog hosts. I’m just helping you promote our - errr, your - book, you know.
Henri: Will you just ask me the questions?
Boomer Chick: Are you going to behave?
Henri: Sure, I’ll do anything you like if we can do it in about eight minutes. I’m on a time schedule, you know.
Boomer Chick: I’m picking up a little sarcasm in your voice, Henri. Can you tell me if anything’s bothering you?
Henri: I’m so glad you asked. Finally, we can have a one-on-one!
Boomer Chick: Yes?
Henri: Why isn’t my name on the cover of our book?
Boomer Chick: Listen, Henri, we’ve been down that road before. It was out of my hands.
Henri: So how will people know it’s my book, too?
Boomer Chick: (laughs) Well, Henri, this is how. You’re on a virtual book tour because you are an author and you wrote a book, right? So, tell the people. Tell them what part you had in all this. Tell them what they need to know, Henri. Now’s your chance.
Henri: Well, okay, I will. I’m still a little miffed because people don’t know unless I tell them and it shouldn’t be that way.
Boomer Chick: Okay, here you go. I would like to announce to the world that Henri de Montmorency wrote the book, The Search for the Million $$$ Ghost. Now, Henri, does that make you happy?
Henri: Yeah, right…like anyone ever goes to a blog called Over the Hill Boomer Chick except old geezers. I want the hip chicks to know, you know?
Boomer Chick: Henri, in case you haven’t noticed…I am a hip chick.
Henri: You need glasses, too.
Boomer Chick: I see this was a bad idea. I’ve got one down in the dumps ghost because he thinks no one knows he wrote a book and a deadline with other authors on tour to meet and my guest today has an attitude. I don’t deserve this, Henri.
Henri: Oh, I’m sorry, okay? But will you do me a favor?
Boomer Chick: Anything, Henri.
Henri: Will you tell whoever comes to your blog that ghosts exist and I’m a living example and I wrote the book even though my name isn’t on the cover?
Boomer Chick: Well, Henri, I think you just did. As a matter of fact, once people open the book, your name is right there on the first page.
Henri: It is?
Boomer Chick: Yes, as a matter of fact, I’ll quote for you. “The Search for the Million $$$ Ghost” by Heide AW Kaminski, Pam Lawniczak, Dorothy Thompson, and, of course, Henri.” It’s all there in black and white. Haven’t you even opened the book?
Henri: Uh…well…I thought it was good enough just to be the author. What author reads his own books anyway?
Boomer Chick: And, what else is neat, Henri, is that on the second page, there’s a picture of you in front of the Hawthorne mansion that Randy Custer drew and gave us permission to include it in the book.
Henri: I didn’t know that. That’s really neat, isn’t it? I mean, neither of you have your picture in the book and I do!
Boomer Chick: Now are you happy?
Henri: I’m ecstatic!
Boomer Chick: Now can we get on with the interview?
Henri: Too late for that! I’ve got to go over to Boo Drop Inn and tell Boo!!!
Boomer Chick: Henri? Henri? Well, I guess Henri has no more to say. Check out The Search for the Million $$$ Ghost at Amazon or your local neighborhood bookstore! Thank you, Henri, wherever you are…authors with their heads in the clouds...what can you do...
