The other day I was waiting in line at Target when a pair of strong hands turned me sideways and pointed something out to me on the endcap of the adjoining aisle. There, sitting in a colorful Easter-wrapped package, were four peeps stabbed through the heart (and out the behind) on a pristine white stick! Oh the inhumanity (more correctly the inpeepwomanity)!
I purchased this example of retail gone too far to show the denizens of Bliss Cottage. What kid would enjoy seeing these tiny chicks impaled one on top of the other, in their Easter basket? What kind of message are we sending? I can only imagine how they would stack the poor little bunnies, ouch!
Murphy wasn’t amused, but neither was he bothered. Marshmallow chicks don’t fall under his radar of protection. He has his hands full with Mia. I pointed out the Paranormal Entity Exposure Partners logo, but still he didn’t get it. I pulled open my first book and read: The former SWAT truck was painted black with a yellow marshmallow chicken on the side chasing a marshmallow ghost, the logo for PEEPs, on each side.
He said, “Oh.”
Anyway, speaking of PEEPs, the expected release of NOLA, the 14th novel of the “Haunted Series,” is the first week of April. If it finishes sooner, we will release it sooner. It was fun to write, and word from The Red Pen is that it’s a good book. The Beta Reader should get it in a week. I hope you’ll like it.
Until next time, I will be on the lookout for further barbaric treatment of peeps.
