More On The Thriller Tour

In her recent interview, Brandilyn Collins told a tale or two on her fellow travelers from their recent "thriller tour." The group is pictured at left in a relatively sane moment. (One of the rare ones, I'm led to understand). Left to right are Tosca Lee, Robin Caroll, Brandilyn Collins, and James Rubart.

In the interest of "fair and balanced reporting," I've contacted the group members and been told that Brandilyn was far from her self-described "perfect." Matter of fact, Jim Rubart felt that description was simply another example of  Brandilyn's tendency to write fiction. Jim showed great restraint when asked to give the low-down on some of Brandilyn's activities, though. Truly a gentleman.








According to Tosca, Brandilyn does a great "frog face." It's evident in this photo. Tosca says it's probably because Brandilyn was always eating green things, like salads. The other members of the group look perfectly normal, of course.

I haven't been able to get details about the infamous "cab ride" except that Robin had to sit in the front seat with the driver (not a great experience), while Brandilyn and Tosca laughed from the back seat. Maybe someone will whisper more to me at ACFW.











And for those of you who think the life of an author on tour is glamorous, I present this example of the group after a hard day of travel and signing.

Thanks, Brandilyn, for the interview and for being a good sport. And thanks to the other members of the tour for their input. You're all great writers and a credit to the profession--even when you're making faces at the camera.




Late-breaking news!!! I've just completed an interview with author Robin Caroll (one of the members of the thriller tour) and will post it on Monday. In addition to more serious topics (her writing, ACFW, her other interests) she gives us a few more thoughts and a picture or two that should be fun. Come back then.

Doc, Doc. You know you can't believe these people. Even the weird photos of me were doctored.

Ah, me. Am I the LAST perfect person left on this earth?

No, Brandilyn, there are at least two of us.
Thanks for stopping by (and for being such a good sport).
