People! Do Your Own Homework.

This morning I got a Google alert about my second novel, Thou Shalt Not Dump the Skater Dude. I don’t know why I still have this alert set up. The book’s five years old and when I do hear from Google, it’s usually because someone has decided to put their copy up for sale on Amazon or Ebay for a nickel (plus shipping).  But every once in awhile it’s because someone’s blogging about it or recommending it or something nice like that and so I don’t delete it.

It led me to a site called Cha Cha, where lazy and stupid people ask questions like “Why do split ends happen and what exactly are they?” (Didn’t know they assigned research papers in Cosmetology school)  and “Who is leading the NFC east in the NFL?

I don’t know the answer to either of these questions off the top of my head but I’m certain I could find more reliable answers elsewhere on the Internet in less time than it took for those people to go to Cha Cha and type them out.

The Skater Dude question posted was “Do the characters end up together in the end of the book Thou Shalt Not Dump the Skater Dude, by rosemary graham?

And to the person who googled “Is there any metaphores in thou shalt not dump the skater dude?” Here’s your answer:
