Sir Poops and Hair Ball: What’s Your Nosh, Author Gwen Gardner

IMG_0485SPAL:Today we’re doing What’s Your Nosh. We nursed Mummsy back to health. She’s doing much better now. So we’re back to share what new and Indie authors are writing.

HB: Yeah. For nosh. Eats. Foodies. Treats. IMG_0531Just leave your donations in the mugs. We really appreciate this, including my pansy brother. Don’t let his dignified self fool you.

SPAL: ***elbows HB*** We’re here to help our fellow authors out there.

HB: No. It’s a guise for good eats. And you know it.

SPAL: Maybe it is for you, stupid. But not for me. Anyway, today we have author Gwen Gardner coming. I think I see her now.

IMG_0350HB: I wonder what she’s bringing us to eat. See anything in her hands?

SPAL: Just behave.

HB: Can I hug her leg?

SPAL: ***steps in front of him*** Absolutely not! ***he looks out at the blogsphere*** Everyone please welcome Gwen Gardner.

HB: ***jumps up and down*** Hey, nice lady! Hey! What you got for us today…

SPAL: Apologies. He means what do you like to nosh on when writing? Tell us why.

GG: Generally, I don’t eat while I’m writing. BUT! (and this is why I don’t usually eat while writing) I recently had a huge box of hot tamales and ate so many, well, you know what happens when you eat too much sugar, right? I love the sweet with the hot combination – it’s sooo addicting.

HB: That would make some hot poops.

SPAL: ***he shoos at HB*** Shh!

HB: I don’t think we should eat those. It would make our tushies burn. Mummsy would get upset if we scooted out butts on the carpet.

SPAL: ***looks at HB*** This is not the time to discuss this. ***he turns and looks at Gwen Gardner*** Nice lady, is it crunchy or soft?

GG: It’s chewy/gummy/sticky.

HB: Oooo. That would get stuck in your butt. Hot and sticky. That would really burn then.

SPAL: ***elbows him*** So nice lady, is it salty or sweet?

GG: Definitely sweet. And cinnamon-y.

HB: Sweet? Sugar? I want some.

SPAL: ***he looks over at HB*** Just be quiet. ***he looks back at Gwen Gardner*** Do these hot tamales get your creative juices flowing?

GG: Since I write YA, it does sort of make me feel like a teenager again. Without the pimples, I mean. So yeah, it gets me in the zone.

HB: I want to go to the zone. The food zone.

SPAL:***rolls his eyes*** Do you have any published books to share, nice lady? What are they? Where can we find them?

GG: My first book, GIVIN’ UP THE GHOST, a YA paranormal cozy mystery, will be self-published on Amazon on October 8th – the first day of my blog tour with my awesome writing buddy/critique partner Angela Brown. We both write YA paranormal so we teamed up under the Partners in ParanormYA banner and are releasing our books and touring Blogtown together. When I’m not touring, I’ll be hanging out at my blog, Gwen Gardner, YA Author.

Blogtour badge for PIP

SPAL: This fun tour starts next Monday. We’re going to help, too.

HB: Yeah. But don’t bring hot tamales. Bring some sugar to the event. That won’t make our butts burn and will keep us from scooting them on Mummsy’s carpet.

SPAL: Also, E.J. Wesley is having his Bury the Hatchet Blogfest. This event ends October 19th. So go to The Open Vein to sign up up for some really cool treats like a Nook.

Lots of licks,

Sir Poops and Hair Ball

    1. He likes to hug everyone's leg, including Mummsy's. THat's the first thing he does when she gets home from work.

  4. There are no interviews like this one! Tweeted. I don't eat while writing, but I'm a marshmallow when it comes to dogs. They'd get their own treat.

    1. Gwen is definitely awesome. But I'm not sure I'd want a Hot Tamale.

  7. Hot tamales are too searing for my Northern stomach! I drink hot tea while I write. Loved getting to know more about you and your debut book, Gwen. Only the higest sales for you. Gypsy, my ghost cat, purrs a superior greeting to Sir Poops and Hairball. You have to forgive her, guys, she is a ghost cat after all. :-)

  8. Hot tamales around here means something totally different! Kisses and hugs and I'm so glad Mummsy is feeling better!

    1. We are too. We don't like it when she's not feeling well. She's the only one who walks us and remembers to fill our water bowl.

    1. Just make sure you don't chew gum while your chewing on your butt, too.

  10. Sir Poops and Hair Ball, thank you so much for the warm welcome! And for not "hugging" my leg. I brought you each an extra large virtual milk bone. My Tuffy and Koko adore them, so I thought you would, too. These are better for you than sugar, because we don't want you getting in trouble from mummsy for butt-dragging on the carpet :=)

    1. Bones are for kisses and licks.

      Thank you.
      Sir Poops

      No. Bones are for chewing and hiding.

      Thank you.
