To quote Kristen Lamb: SQUEEEEEEEEEEEE!
I have fun news!
For the next several days it’s gonna be recess on the playground here on More Cowbell (and in several other places).
I mean, seriously fun PLAY TIME where we:
Erm, sorry…got carried away.
More Cowbell is going to be The Devil’s Playground for the next few days to get ready for the launch party of James Rollins’ new book, The Devil Colony, on June 21st. (Another SQUEEEEEE!)
Between now and Tuesday, we’ll be waving our devilish pom-poms and crooning:
J-A-M-E-S…J-A-M-E-S…J-A-M-E-S… And Jimbo was his name-o!
(For all of you with little ones, I’ll bet you have B-I-N-G-O in your heads right now too! As you’ll see below, Mr. Rollins probably won’t mind my Toddler Brain linking him to a song about dogs. I’ll bet that Bingo was a Devil Dog though…)
For all of you that haven’t met James, below is a short video that gives you a window into his devilish world. Did any of you know he’s a veterinarian?? Nowadays he’s mostly an adventurer (read: hottie) and a wickedly wonderful writer.
Between now and Tuesday, several paths will lead to Jim:
- Get one of his books – here’s the full list
- Watch the video below
- Hang out at #myWANA on Twitter
- Read this fun interview with him on Kristen Lamb’s blog
More details tomorrow on the (big) launch party, Twitter hashtag, etc. Be prepared to put on your play clothes and come party HERE on The Devil’s Playground!
ANNOUNCEMENT: June Winners of the Let’s Meet Up (for Training) Contest!!
For those of you who are new to More Cowbell, we are in our second month of this contest. The May Winners chose LinkedIn as their training du jour. We got onto the More Cowbell Party Line for a fun-filled hour of LinkedIn training, complete with a manual.
NOTE: All winners got the manual whether they were able to attend or not (a few of you were on vacation…SO jealous!).
I’ve been throwing your name into The Hat – y’all remember the Big Birthday Hat right? It seemed like the great thing to use for this but somebody misplaced it earlier this week, causing a delay of our June Webinar announcement.
The winners will vote on their topic of choice and we will schedule a webinar. Topic ideas from your comments:
- Twitter tools such as Tweet Deck and Social Oomph
- Setting up WordPress
- Microsoft Word – Tips and Tricks
- General Computer Knowledge
