Evil Editor Launch Party!

Evil Editor is my favourite enigma on the blogosphere. Back in 2006 when I started writing, I stumbled on a blog that offered advice on query letters. Evil Editor and his Minions helped me polish my query letters and first paragraphs in the most hilarious way.

With our permission, EE posted various writers' first paragraphs and we were challenged to add another 200 words or so to give these first paragraphs an amusing twist. He picked the funniest and favourites and published them in his own book, Novel Deviations. I was fortunate to have one of my continuations appear in one of his first books.

We have a lot of theories about his real identity. He posts his picture as a mutton-chopped gentleman, but I have other ideas about his actual persona.

There will be a blog party dedicated to the release of EE's book 'Novel Deviations 3' on Thursday, January 24 on Church Lady's blog. It runs all day, so be sure to drop by for a lot of fun.

I've been looking at all the pics of EE! They are all hilarious!

Hi Chumplet- this choice of yours is a scream for the EE pic!

I wonder how many of us have tried to figure out who he really is? It's fun, trying to zero in on Mr. Enigma. The only thing is, if I actually found out, I don't know how I'd feel about that!

Great EE pick Chumplet! You guys are hilarious. Wonder if EE is cruising around to check out all the blogs today?

Love the picture. Seems we all have a slightly different take on him.

Church Lady said...

LOL!!! Very funny--reminds me of an SNL spoof!

THanks for posting. I am sorry that I am late here, but (as I've been explaining around the blogosphere) I am having blogger issues. Some sites I can see in real time. Some I'm not able to view past Saturday. Then all of a sudden I can. Including my own. It's random and frustrating.
Anyway...appreciate your support.
You're not EE, are you?
heh heh!

That's so cool! Just this afternoon I was wondering what EE looked like.

You began writing in 06 and published in 07? Whoa! I'm am soooo impressed.

Found EE through the Snark. Congrats on having your continuation included! Will post the invite on my blog - as a reminder to myself, too.

Well, the stories were lurking in my brain for a long time, and I couldn't write them down longhand and actually decipher the words, so I had to wait until I had a laptop to get the words out of my head.

What a long sentence!

Despite all the promo, I didn't make it to the Church Lady's party, which is a shame, because I'm certain it was great.

I'm finally doing what I meant to do a month or so ago; adding you to my blogroll... and Oh... I hope you don't mind, but you're it!

Thanks, Richard. I'll think of something! And you are linked, too!
