Flushed with Success... and a giveaway!

Man oh man, April is a big month. I have three stories coming out in amazing venues. The first is out now and the publisher is providing a copy to be given away on my blog!

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Presents Flush Fiction: 87 Short Short Stories You Can Read in a Single Sitting contains stories across genres, all at fewer than a thousand words. You'll laugh! You'll cry! You won't want to confuse this with toilet paper! My tale is about a zombie working as a night stocker at Wal-mart--only the poor guy doesn't know he's a zombie yet, even as he has a mighty fierce craving for brain.

So, the rules for the giveaway. First of all, the copy is mailed from the publisher, so the winner has to be in the United States. Sorry, international folk. I'll have another giveaway for you guys sometime soon.

Enter by:

- Replying with a comment here telling me about your dream bathroom. We all have one, we just don't talk about. Go for sinks, wood color, paint, tiles... whatever makes you sigh in want. That's it. Say "Hi! I'd like to win a book" Tell me about a dream bathroom. Give me an awful toilet joke. Tell me whatever you like.

- If you're not on LJ, please leave an email address so I have a way to get hold of you.

- If you're unable to post for some reason, feel free to email me (Beth.L.Cato at gmail dot com) and I'll gladly post for you and include you in the selection.

- In one week I'll use random.org to select the winner.

- Winner needs to have a U.S. address.

Also... please share the news of this giveaway! Tweet it, Facebook it, blog it. It won't earn extra entries, but I'll love you for it. Or go and check out the book for yourself. Reading it on the toilet is optional.


If it wern't cold in winter,
and the pipe overhead
didn't drip in the summer,
I'd be pretty darned happy...
With four children, I've spent entirely more time in bathrooms for other people than I care to recall.

But I'd still really enjoy the opportunity to read this book.
Do you read Terry Pratchett? Hogfather has a Super 'Room designed by the world's greatest bungling design genius, the epitomous [Lord hep us, is that a word? Where's Webster?] blow-yourself-up inventor, Bloody Stupid Johnson. Don't turn that tap!

So I nominate B.S. Johnson's barricaded Super 'Room at the Unseen University. Just don't turn THAT tap!!!

P.S. I'd go for a book if it's in the cards...

Going to the Bathroom by Myself

This doesn't happen anymore with a 17-month old baby and a 3-year-old baby boxer. :) LOL But I'd like to win your book anyway. I'll just have to read it in bed.

Books and Bathrooms

My dream bathroom would come equipped with
Monsieur Masseuse with the magic hands but my husband might have a little something to say about that so I'd have to agree to a
Mademoiselle Masseuse but only if she spoke French so he would know what she was saying. Meanwhile, I'd read my new book and RELAX.

(cute book give-away idea)
Hi Beth!

Your blog is so pretty! I love the look of the bookmark sidebar!

I would love to win the book because now I know both you & Cathy in there! Congratulations on all your success!

My dream bathroom would include an automatic seat riser whenever it senses a male with poor aim coming. I'm tired of sitting on a wet seat!

I am posting an entry on behalf of Sally Apokedak. LiveJournal wouldn't let her post.
My dream bathroom would be self-cleaning.

There are far too many males in my house. *sigh*
My dream bathroom would include a stereo, a computer, a hot tub, and a self-cleaning toilet. ^^
