Write My Bio! Or, help me sound less lame…

LeaveALittleSparkle

Today I want to do something a little different. But, hopefully, fun.

When I was putting everything together for Suzanne's guest post (if you missed it, click here), I kept reading over my bio and just felt like it was . . . off somehow. I'm not sure why. Too serious? Too clichΓ©? Too frivolous? What?!

To help me figure out who I am as a writer, human, glitter fiend, I'm inviting all of you to write my bio! You can make it as silly as you'd like, or serious, it's up to you. Have fun with it. It can be as long or as short as you want, but please, nothing hurtful, or sexually suggestive. Any comments that border on questionable taste will be deleted. I know I can be a bit of a goof, but I do have standards!

I've love for this to be something I can actually use, but even if it's all for fun, that's okay as well.

And because I love you all so very much and appreciate the support you've shown over the past few years, I'm letting you all in on a little secret ~

My first novel,Β The Stones of Kaldaar, will be released September 3, 2014!

I can't believe it's finally going to happen. There's a sense of terrified excitement bubbling inside me and I want to race around the world shouting it from the rooftops. But I shan't. Because that would be really weird and super expensive!

Also! I'm putting the final touches on my newsletter. If you haven't signed up yet and would like super secret, behind the scenes stuff from the books and my life, make sure you get on that newsletter list. Taryn and I are putting the final touches on a cookie recipe she concocted and I think you'll love it. To sign up for the newsletter, click here.

Next week I'll start my posts on what I discovered in New Orleans. It was an adventure, to be sure!

Until then, hit me with your bios! Here's what I'm working with, but I think you all can do better.

Tameri Etherton writes stories about kick ass heroines and the rogues who steal their hearts. While not writing, or researching for her latest book, she can be found in tea shops laughing with friends, reading books, or at home curled up on the couch watching movies with her family. She lives in a quaint little seaside village, and enjoys long walks on the beach with her own prince charming.

And off you go…

    I dig your bio! Though you forgot the part about being a wig-wearing, glitter-topped superhero. πŸ˜‰

    I’ve been revamping mine for a new proposal. You can peek at it here, if you’d like!

      Great bio, August! And many well deserved successes. I’m so happy things are all aligning for you and that you’re having a ball following your path! πŸ˜€

      I agree with August. If you leave out the glitter, the cape, or the magnificent hot pink wig, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Our Tameri is MAGIC. πŸ™‚

      I’m so, so excited about your book! Congratulations!!!

    Destroyer of worlds, juggler of many tasks, master of all she surveys, and rocker of sparkly tiaras.

    I think you need to work in the part where you’re always crafting, blinging up the swag. It also needs something about sparkle, because of your glitter juice and tiaras. Like David said, “Rocker of sparkly tiaras.” πŸ™‚

    I haven’t been awake long, but thought I should try now because I’ll forget later. And yes, I’m still bitter about the whole Bob thing. Those who voted against me shall find themselves suffering all manner of indignities in future books, so be warned. πŸ˜€

    With Lady Raz (whose name should have been Lady Bob) by her side, tiara-wearing, Tameri Etherton leaves a sparkling trail of glitter in her wake as she creates and conquers new worlds and the villains who inhabit them. When she isn’t pounding away at the keyboard, Ms. Etherton feeds her herbal tea and bread pudding addiction by seeking out the best of the best, and finding inspiration for her kickass heroines – and the rogues who steal their hearts – with her own Prince Charming by her side.

    I like your bio, but adding another sentence might be fun, maybe from one of the comments. I agree with August, something about the pink wig! I need to give this some thought and am just running out the door to spend some time with hubby, so I’ll be back. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures in New Orleans.

    How exciting that your novel is coming out soon!

    Let’s see…

    Tameri Etherton just may be a fairy godmother in disguise. When not masquerading as a mom and writer, she is often spotted wearing a pink wig and tiara, leaving a trail of glitter behind her. Rumor has it she travels to far off places where she drinks tea with dragons! And she married a Prince! Like all good fairies, Tameri weaves magic wherever she wanders and her books are just the wish you’ve been waiting for.

    I was all excited about helping you after I got finished with the horse show, then I come over here and read everyone’s brilliance, and I think, “She doesn’t need me, she’s got minions to help her!” You’ve got some great ones to choose from – I’ll help you spread the sparkle!

    There is so much awesome going on in these comments! Sorry to be so late to the bio party (just trying to keep my head above the stuff…).

    You are sparkly and wonderful and have very cool minions! πŸ™‚

    Congratulations on your upcoming release, Tameri.
    I’ll leave the Bio writing to the others above. I’m useless at them!
