In the interests of getting the book name and link out there as much as possible, the plan here is to give away free books over the holidays.
HOW: ::Contact::: me and submit your proposal for a group or site giveaway, let me know how many people are in the group and what sort of deadline or date scenario you have in mind. If it alls sounds good, I’ll supply the book.
WHERE: Groups with an online presence of some sort that can spread the word and link back to the book site are best. But in person groups and meets are also a possibility if they are influential and get the title circulating among members.
WHEN: Any time between now and the first of the year.
WHY: To get the book title out there and circulating and gaining some recognition factor outside my immediate realm of influence. Anyone on my sites or connected directly to me already knows the book’s title and/or probably already has the book. The idea here is to have giveaways in venues not directly linked to me to get the title circulating in new places.
WHO SHOULD DO THIS: Anyone with a significant writers membership and/or online presence.
WHO PICKS THE WINNERS: It’s up to the organizer to pick winners. I’ll supply the book. I’d also like to know, if and when this flies, how many people entered or were present for the book drawing.
PS: Max will be a #Scriptchat guest December 29th, 8 PM EST, discussing “Do’s and don’ts to get your screenplay read, sold, and produced.” A lucky #scriptchat attendee will receive a free copy of The New Screenwriter’s Survival Guide.

The TNSSG Street Team and —
Terry Rossio are having a total barbeque frenzy Wednesday, October 23rd, in Austin Texas [yes the kick off day of the Austin Film Festival] at a totally famous Austin barbeque place.
I could tell you how to get to this fabulous extravaganza, but —
I don’t want to coddle you.
I am bored with trying to bribe people.
Choose the correct door below and you will get the details. And could totally show for this faboo barbeque extravaganza.
Don’t choose the right door?
Good luck, Sports Fans.
Love and Kisses,
Your No More Coddling Adams Girl

Word on the street is we just went Banksy in Connecticut, West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Yay yay yay!
That leaves us 18 states to go Banksy before Christmas.
STATES LEFT TO GO :::GOING BANKSY:::
*Asterisks mean someone said they’re taking that state, that doesn’t always happen just because someone says it’s going to happen, but hey, there’s a claim.

So foolishly Saturday night I went dancing in totally inappropriate shoes. [Hey, I did not know I was going dancing, I thought I was going to a comedy club. And I did that too. The dancing was a surprise event that came after.] Then for good measure, I trotted up and down unfriendly stairs in said inappropriate shoes, did two shots of some really suspicious cinnamon flavored brew, and slammed my [bad, okay, they are both bad, but I picked the most bad for this stunt] knee into a hard surface just to bring that baby home.
The knee is not feeling very forgiving. My knees have never been forgiving. In the words of a past ortho doc, “So pretty on the outside, so ugly on the inside.” So I am a little hobbled here, but hey, the knee has not demanded the knee brace yet. Ooh la la, I can still wear shorts and pretty dresses — if I don’t go crazy on the shoes. [Yeah, don't count on that.]
Meanwhile, in other news. If you were planning on that free bumper sticker with swag, you missed out. That ended Sunday. But the swag is still cool, free [bribe!] bumper sticker or not, and there is cool new book news on the horizon.
:::THE BOOK::: is now available at Book People [Austin], Book Soup [West Hollywood], Cinema Books [Seattle], Samuel French [Hollywood], and coming soon to Trident Booksellers and Cafe [Boston]. Yay!
[Check out :::WHERE TO BUY::: for the current list of booksellers.]
Also we’re talking to Book Soup about an author event. That would seriously be yay, though involve [uh ohs] me getting on a plane.
And in other cool ass news, knee willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll be playing softball in the upcoming Gridiron Heroes Celebrity Softball Tournament September 13-14 in Schertz Texas [that's by San Antonio for the geographically impaired] so if you want to see mind over matter, come out to the Gridiron Heroes event and watch me run on this punk ass knee. Yay!
I promise to wear appropriate foot wear and swing that bat. Also I throw in home via Second and yell “Not the face!” a lot [my short stop days are over shut up] and should be doing a fabulous Kirk Gibson impression from the year The Dodgers brought that baby home. Except I’m shorter and blonder. Bottom line, It should be entertaining as hell, if you like to see small blondes run and curse a lot.
AND. It’s for a :::DAMN GOOD CAUSE:::
See you there.
Your Gridiron Heroes Adams Girl
*BTW, we have done hot crazy Gridiron Hero action here before. Oh yez, last year we did the hot poker tournament and auction. Stop in. We’re not going anywhere.

This is probably only amusing to me, but wow, my copy of the old book took a beating. [Technically, my copy was a damaged copy going in, but still, poor little book. Talk about abuse. But look how pretty the new book is. Yay!]

I want to sleep for a week…

Self publishing is not for the weak of heart. If you had told me how much freaking work this was and how hard going in?
I would never have done it.
Then again, that applies to everything I have ever done.
I think there is a certain angelic magnificence to just being too stupid to know something is impossible.
I’m lucky to have been bathed in that angelic stupidity and magnificence more than once in my lifetime.
It’s how I survived childhood.
How I made it to college.
How I finished college.
How I made it to Hollywood.
How I finished this book.
And how I finished it again.
Final galleys are approved.
Let’s print this mother.
