Guest Post with Entangled Author, Jus Accardo
I'd like to Welcome Jus Accardo to the blog today! Jus has a new release with Entangled Publishing. (My Publisher- woohoo!)
She's come here today to talk about her grandest wishes. (She already has a literary agent, so let's rule that wish out right away.-Way to go, Jus!)
Take it away, Jus!!!!
I wish, I wish, I wish I was a fish…
No, not really. I have no desire to be a fishie. But I do have a few wishes. Completely random, and somewhat crazysauce wishes that will give you a peek into my twisted and overly caffeinated brain…
1. Llamas in a smaller, more manageable size. Llamas kick butt. If you don’t believe me, go take a look at one. Really look. They’re adorable and they make funny noises. WinWin! I wish they came in smaller sizes so we could keep one in the house. I’d name him Floyd and tie a bright green ribbon around his neck. Why green? Duh. Floyd is a dude. He wouldn’t go for any of that pink ribbon crap.
2. Joss Whedon, my neighbor. I wish Joss Whedon lived next door and threw house parties (that he’d invite me to, of course) for all of his characters (which were, of course, real). Quite possibly the coolest man alive, Joss would be my bff. I’d get to hang with Spike and Mal and play drinking games with Buffy.
3. Animals could talk. This is probably one of those Be careful what you wish for wishes—something I’d probably regret in the end—but I can’t help it. I love my dogs and I’d love to know what’s on their mind at any given moment. Plus, I wouldn’t mind chatting with Oswald—my bear—or having wordswith the ground hog who keeps digging craters in my strawberry patch…
If you could make a wish, what would it be?
Great thoughts Jus!
