SPAL: Well, today we have Sir Wills, a/k/a, William Kendall.
HB: His debut novel, Heaven and Hell, is about to be released. And I hope he’s got some good nosh like our Daddy-O.
SPAL: So ladies and gentlemen please give Sir Wills a hand. ***claps his paws together*** Make sure you behave today.
HB: ***claps his paws together and sticks out his tongue at SPAL***
SPAL: ***he shakes hands with William*** Welcome good sir. We’re honored to have you.
HB: ***jumps up and down**** Yay! Yeah we are.
SPAL: Please do tell us, what do you like to snack on when you’re writing? Tell me why you like it.
WK: In a word, chocolate. I admittedly have a sweet tooth, so chocolate very nicely does the trick in satisfying it. Particularly anything that mixes chocolate and peanut butter into one scrumptious bit of deliciousness.
HB: Oh my goodness. He loves chocolate and peanut butter. I love peanut butter. It’s good.
SPAL: ***looks at HB*** Don’t start. I love peanut butter, too. ***he faces William again*** So nice sir, can you describe it for us? Is it crunchy or soft?
WK:Usually crunchy, depending on the type of chocolate I’ve got close at hand.
HB: Oh crunchy is nice on the teeth. Crunch peanut butter, too. Mm…
SPAL: ***taps HB on the head*** Shh! Nice sir, is it salty or sweet?
WK: It has to be sweet! I don’t care for salty stuff to begin with- potato chips, for instance.
HB: I’ll take your potato chips. They’re good.
SPAL: ***rolls his eyes*** I apologize for my little brother. He doesn’t always behave well around people and food. Anyway, does your nosh get your creative juices flowing?
WK: It does give me a sugar rush... I don’t know if that sparks the creative impulse though. Just tastes really good.
HB: ***he opens his mouth wide*** I want a sugar rush. I know I asked for that a couple posts ago. No one seems to think its good for me.
SPAL: ***shakes his head***Do you have any published books out there?
WK: Not yet, but I’m close. My solo novel Heaven & Hell is going through beta reading and edits, and should be out soon, and under my alter ego James Morgan, I’m co-writing Same Time Tomorrow. We’re getting towards the end of the writing process.
SPAL: Oh please do share an excerpt from your work in progress.
This is a passage early on in Heaven & Hell, between my two main characters.
“So, there you are.” It was Devon’s voice, behind him.
“Yes, I managed to find a suit,” he replied with a smile.
He turned, and was impressed. Devon was, to put it mildly, simply stunning. She was wearing a silver cocktail dress that was sexy and elegant, in perfect keeping with her sense of style. She gave him an appraisal. “You look like an undertaker.”
He smirked. “And you look beautiful.” That was enough to fluster her.
“Damn you, Stryker, complimenting me after what I just said to you.”
“I like seeing you flustered,” Stryker remarked. “You do look beautiful.”
She stepped a bit closer, avoiding his eyes. “Your tie needs adjusting.” Devon moved her hands up to his throat, and he felt her tighten the tie. “Don’t worry,” she assured him, smirking a bit herself. “I won’t strangle you. At least not tonight.”
“Oh, that’s good to know,” Stryker said, and Devon stepped back.
WK:Thank you very much for hosting me today!
SPAL: Thank you for coming.
HB: Yeah. Chocolate and peanut butter sound really good together.
SPAL: Please come back and see us. I know Mummsy was one of your beta-readers. She really liked it. She’s excited for you.
WK: ***waves bye***
HB: Please bring us some of your chocolate and peanut butter next time.
SPAL and HB: *** both wave bye***
SPAL: You really need to stop begging. People are going to think all we want is their food.
HB: But this was supposed to help us get some good foodies.
SPAL: You better not act that way tomorrow. E.J. Wesley is coming over with his fur peeps.
SPAL & HB: Mummsy’s hair lopping today from 9 to 5 so we’ll be back later to answer any comments.
HB: Bring us some chocolate, too.
