Maybe it’s because I’m a girl (girls giggle a lot, you know), maybe it’s because I’m easy (to make laugh! you sick people!), but J. Scott Savage cracks me up. And all I could think about the whole time was:
Eddie Valiant: Seriously, what do you see in that guy?
Jessica Rabbit: He makes me laugh.
After talking about breaking into my own house and wondering whether I should give me renter his $200 deposit back, J. Scott Savage (let’s just call him Scott, m’kay?) left a comment saying, “I’d drop by a local bar of ill repute and ask a couple of shady characters what the going rate is for a B&E. If it’s over $200 don’t return the deposit.” This cracked me up in the belly-laugh kinda way. My witty repartee was along the lines of “ROFL! Haha…if the going rate for a B&E is over $200, then I’m quitting my day job.” Scott quickly replied with, “You might not have to quit right away. I’m assuming breaking and entering is more of a night gig.” (I think it’s pretty clear who’s better at the witty repartee.)
I know that this isn’t as funny the second time around, but there’s something about someone who makes you laugh that endears you to them (Hi, Raych!). I was instantly enamoured. And when I told him so and told him that my post would probably be along the lines of: “This is what he said, isn’t it funny, go read his blog and buy his book,” he said that was fine and cheerleaders are a-okay in his book! So here I am cheerleading, pom poms and all (Hi, Scott! 😉 ).
Anywho, J. Scott Savage is an author who blogs over at Find Your Magic. He’s written a few books, Dead on Arrival and House of Secrets: A Shandra Covington Mystery are two of them, but he’s now started the first in a five book YA fantasy series called Farworld. This is his first YA book and his first fantasy series.
To kick off his blog tour, he’s offering bloggers a special deal: post about his blog tour, and you get an ARC (that you agree to review on your blog) and he wants to do a Q&A with you and you get a book to giveaway. You can find out more details here.
I am totally jumping on this gravy train (could I call it a magic train?). Scott…I seriously hope your book is awesome. ‘Cause little did you know that by making me laugh, my expectations for how awesome your book will be has skyrocketed. I think people who are funny tend to have a more natural way with words, and I’m just waiting for Scott to prove me right.
I’ll leave you with this last quote from Who Framed Roger Rabbit (Vista Series):
Roger Rabbit: That’s right! A laugh can be a very powerful thing. Why, sometimes in life, it’s the only weapon we have.
