Official Book Release! SUNDAY OCTOBER 19! OMG!

in Bears,book,Events,Help! @ 9:39 pm

Did you know: in the dark chewy center of the Internet there is a shiny golden orb that emits OMG!!!!  Pure rays of unadulterated OMG!!!! radiate from it, glistening droplets of OMG!!!! condense on its perfect surface … and all of that OMG!!! has been pooling down there for millions of years, until now, when I have finally perfected my technique for tapping this amazing OMG!!!! engine that keeps us all totally, you know, OMG!  OMG!  OMG!!!!

How do I do it?  This is how: by announcing the OFFICIAL BOOK RELEASE AND BEAR WRESTLING FESTIVAL for no other book than:

HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!

(Also known by its TXT translation: OMG! I’S D3DZ! LOL!)

Seriously, though … OMG!!!!  You have no idea how long I’ve been waiting for this wild event!  Scheduled to coincide with my very own 40th birthday,  this is no normal oh-honey-let’s-go-see-that-author-whatsisname-mumble-into-a-microphone-at-borders-and-then-get-a-latte book release event.  I can promise you ACTION, SUSPENSE and TOUCHING WHOLESOMENESS!  Plus liquor, bear wrestling, movies and goth-industrial dancing!

Here’s what author Mark Saltzman once called “Three-Way Fist of Author Appearance Stance!”

FIST ONE: I will introduce the book, myself, the bartender, etc, and read to you!  Just a little bit, you know.

FIST TWO: I will present you with an entertaining slide-show on the topic of bears, global warming, obesity and the future!  OMG!!!!

FIST THREE: With the cooperation of a LIVE BEAR, I will educate you in Bear-Fu, the ancient art of wilderness bear safety!  OMG!!!!

FIST FOUR: Ha!  You were not expecting fist four!  This is the fist of MOVIES!  Yes, we will watch bear-cinema together, you and I!   OMG!!!!

FIST FIVE (BONUS FIST): Goth industrial dancing all night!  W00t!

And just to give you a little bit more to go on: this event will be the official launching of the HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!  WORLD TOUR OF NORTH AMERICA’S WEST-COAST CITIES, SOME OF THEM!  Yes, this show is going on the road starting in November, so come smash a champagne bottle on my prow.

I sure hope to see you! The official release with details is my very next post!  Watch this space!

Almost dead!

Dear friends: the opportunity to use the word PENULTIMATE — go ahead, go look it up, I’ll wait here — comes far too rarely for my tastes. That’s why I’m pleased to provide you now with this, the PENULTIMATE CHAPTER of this increasingly epic podcast:

HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!

And dude, it is *so* PENULTIMATE! I mean, seriously! Not only is it PENULTIMATE, it’s also PEN-LONG-IMATE! That’s right, it’s the second longest chapter in the series. Long with goodness! It’s got action, it’s got suspense, and it’s got lots and lots of bears! It’s the kind of chapter that makes you turn skyward and exclaim “Thank you, Jesus, for chapters!”

In fact, if I had to pick a favorite chapter, I might pick this PENULTIMATE one — CHAPTER TWELVE!

Happy Halloween

Hi Kids! Happy Halloween! Yes, we know it’s a few days late; we’re a few days late; you too, someday, will be a few days late. And when that day comes, rest assured that I will not be the one to hassle you about the small, slight, nigh imperceptible delay in your release of CHAPTER ELEVEN of your thirteen-chapter existential nightmare comedy novel known as:

HELP! A BEAR IS EATING ME!

… but don’t name your book that, or I will be forced to sue.
