Shannon Baker

Happy Friday, everyone! I've edited up to the 65K words on my WIP. How are you all doing?

Jess Lourey

Shannon, that's more words than my March mystery even had, so I think you're doing AWESOME. I'm taking my kids to renew their passports. Rockin' Friday here in Minnesota, for sure.

Jess Lourey

Hey, just to show everyone how giving we are, should I also remind the good folks that we both have Goodreads giveaways going on right now. Stripped Bare: http://tinyurl.com/jk236qv Salem’s Cipher: http://tinyurl.com/z854wjl

Passports!! Is this in anticipation of the research trip to Europe for Salem's follow-up book?

Mark

Humor is subjective. I find that some of the books people consider humorous mysteries don't make me laugh, and I love to laugh. I still love those books, I just don't laugh at them.

Jess Lourey

Maybe, Shannon. :-)

Makes sense, Mark!

Lauren Sorgaard

Humor is totally subjective. I would share a funny story...I'm sure I have one, but for some reason have total mental block. I think it's because it's Friday afternoon and it's been a particularly taxing work week and I just want it to be time to go home and have a frosty cold adult beverage. Love both your work and blogs!

Jess Lourey

Thank you, Lauren, and I do believe that your post is funny. :-) Not being able to think of a funny story is funny! Enjoy your frosty.

Life would be pretty sad without humor. Almost all the books I enjoy have some humor in them, even if they're not humorous stories per se. And Shannon, I often find myself laughing in situations where it's not appropriate too (although I try not to do so out loud). Those are usually the situations where you need the most comic relief! And Jess, I never would have guessed you grew up with bad teeth. You have a lovely smile (and I don't mean that in a creepy, Internet-stalker way).

Shannon Baker

Mark, I don't usually laugh out loud at a book, but I read David Sedaris's ME SPEAK PRETTY ONE DAY on a plane and laughed so hard I couldn't breathe and tears were flowing. Then I couldn't stop laughing. It was horrifyingly funny to see how embarrassed my husband got!

Luaren, I take my cold frosties very seriously -- until I've had two, then everything is pretty funny.

Marla -- one time I was involved in a months-long school board issue in a small town. Those can get vitriolic and I laughed at everything. One woman, in a rage, spit at me, "WHere there's laughter, there's Shannon Baker!" Of course, that cracked me up more.

Marla Bradeen

Although I've never been to a school board meeting myself (thank goodness), I can picture that perfectly Shannon!

Jess Lourey

Marla, you're the winner of Stripped Bare, thanks to your comments above, and Lauren, you're the winner of Salem's Cipher. Woot! Please get us your mailing addresses via a private Facebook messages or our websites.

Thanks so much! I'm looking forward to reading my first Shannon Baker book!
