Welcome to Ask Mama, for all the answers . . .

Rosalee Provenza, Mama in my mystery series, thinks she's the whole reason for Mama Does Time (Midnight Ink, 2008), and Mama Rides Shotgun (2009). She was sure her star couldn't shoot any higher after Mama Gets Hitched came out in 2010. But, sure enough, her head swelled to Hollywood diva size after 2011's Mama Sees Stars debuted with a red carpet party, complete with paparazzi. Now she's mixing it up with Mama Gets Trashed (September 2013). Don't tell Mama you read this note from me. In her mind, she sprung to life all on her own.
Sincerely,
Author Deborah Sharp
PS: Mama has a way of taking over; but you'll find my own website nearly Rosalee-free.

Flattered or Insulted?

Well, y'all ... I don't know whether to take this as a compliment or a dig. Why don't you tell me?

Seems that glory-hogging Deborah Sharp has grabbed another award, created by Lesa Holstein at Lesa's Book Critiques :




Creative Writer ... sounds nice, right? But look what's crossed out: Bald Faced Liar. And Deborah's friend, Sue Ann Jaffarian, nominated this little advice column of mine, not Miss Fancy Pants' boring old author blog, Mystery Gal.

So, does that make Deborah or me the liar? And, do I owe Sue Ann a thank-you?

Well, I'll play along. No one can call Mama a bad sport. Here are the rules:

1.Thank the person who gave this to you. Hmm, thanks (?), Sue Ann.

2.Copy the logo and place it on your blog. Done

3.Link to the person who nominated you. See #1 above.

4.Tell us up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth. Since the Bible tells us to always be truthful, I'm letting Deborah take over here (Lying doesn't seem to bother Miss Fancy Author):

1. I worked as a street mime in Paris the summer after high school.
2. I went, sans swimsuit, to a nude beach on my 50th birthday.
3. I was a DJ at my college radio station and my stage name was Sexy Sadie.
4. I was a finalist to be a contestant on the first season of ''Survivor.''
5. I was an Egyptian queen during one past life; a witch at the Salem trials in another.
6. I won a Hot Bod bikini contest during college Spring Break in Fort Lauderdale.
7. I was selected to be the first journalist in space before NASA's funding dried up.
8. I was arrested for violating a restraining order in a dust-up with the Monkees' Davy Jones.

5. Allow your readers to guess which one or more are true. Go for it, y'all.

6. Nominate seven "Creative Writers" who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.

Victoria Allman : Following My Stomach
Alan Williamson : Unauthorized Insights
Glen Allison : Fat, Bald and Studly
Julia Buckley : Mysterious Musings
Deb Baker : Inside Looking Out
Pamela James and Terri Parsons : Mayhem & Magic
Mike Befeler : Author of ''Geezer Lit'' mysteries


7. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate. Done, see bloggers above.

8. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them. All set.

Okay, y'all ... I'll ask Fancy Pants Deborah to announce here two weeks from today which of her statements above are whoppers.

Sincerely,
Mama

I'm perfectly tickled that you nominated me! Hot dog. But I'm not sure I can do better than these whoppers!

Alan Orloff said...

Tough choices. They could (almost) all be true. I'll say number three is true. DJ Debby-Sharp-Sharp.

Glen said...

Was it chilly on that beach? Oops. Thank you so much for thinking of me. Even if it was about my outrageous lying ability. I'll get to work on this almost immediately, DS. Tell Mama hello.fa

Julia Buckley said...

I'm with Deb--those are hard to top! But I think the Egyptian queen one is a lie--although I'd love to be wrong about that!

Julia Buckley said...

I'm with Deb--I don't think I can top those! But I think the Egyptian queen one is a lie--although I'd love to be wrong!

Rosalee Deveraux said...

hey, there fellow liars!
Hope you're up to the challenge. Deb and Julia, I have confidence you both can come up with bigger lies than you think. Glen: Uhm, a bit chilly, yes. My b-day is in Jan! Alan: This song goes out to you...

Victoria Allman said...

Swimsuit-less for sure!
I'm not sure my Canadian roots OR my memoir writing skills will allow me to be a Bald Faced Liar, but I am game to try.
Thanks for my first blogger award nomination.

Deborah Sharp said...

Don't worry, Victoria... we'll make a self-aggrandizing, exaggerating, ME-ME-ME gal out of you yet, Canadian modesty be damned!

Dru said...

It's a toss between #3 and #6 that could be true.

Rosalee Deveraux said...

Dru: Hmmmmm, interesting. You do know I grew up in Ft. Laud, home to spring break, right?

Sue Ann Jaffarian said...

Since you put 8 up, I'm choosing 2 truths - #2 & #8. Great lies, BTW!
