It's Photo Friday!


Okay, I realize I'm setting myself up for this one. But the picture's just too good not to use. In case you're wondering, the photo includes me, my mother and three sisters. And yes, we're all reading my latest novel, Exposure. You're probably wondering much more than that, but I'll leave the rest up to your imagination.

So here we go. Write your best creative caption. (Or two, or three.) Come back sometime over the weekend and vote on your favorite. The winner will be announced next week. Prize: his/her choice of one of my novels.

I'm terrible with captions so I'll skip that, but...why are all those toilets in your driveway???

Kim Vogel Sawyer said...

Okay, I'll give the caption thing a shot: The Singing Seamands Sisters allowed Ruth to hit the high notes.

Ralene said...

Five out of five women agree: the best place to read is on the throne.

EXPOSURE--a page-turner that will cause you to choose your reading "chair" carefully!(Read with a friend!)

I'm with Kim--what are all those toliets doing in the driveway? And what are those spots on your driveway....

Margo Carmichael said...

"All together, now, in the key of P." Sorry, couldn't resist. :)

~ Brandilyn Collins said...

Hm. Perhaps I shall do a post next week on the story behind the picture.

Ron Estrada said...

A book release potty was the unfortunate result of Brandilyn's 3am invitation writing.

Jennifer Devlin said...

"because some things in life really DO need an instruction manual!"

Daniel F. Case said...

"Facing more budget cuts, Brandilyn's publisher suggests a new low-cost focus group alternative: The Flush Counter."

Danica/Dream said...

If only the typo on page 176 was the least of Brandilyn's problems.

Hannah said...

Hm, how about..."The Queen of Suspense takes the throne."

And I'll add my plea to the rest of the comments: please, reveal the story behind this photo!

angela said...

My vote is for: "Prepared to be scared." Love it.

Sheila Deeth said...

I'm hopeless at captions, but I loved Pattykay's third one.

As the novel drew to a close- the book club decided camping out on barndilyn's drive, was the only way they could assure being the first with a new release....they brought the necessities.

Ane Mulligan said...

Too funny!! I spent time looking at your sisters, at Mama Ruth and your book cover. It wasn't until I'd read the entire entry that I noticed your ... uh ... seats. ROFLOL! I can't wait to hear that story. :D

Domino said...

Exposure is a book you can't put down, even for a potty break.

I'm voting for two favorites:

"A book release potty was the unfortunate result of Brandilyn's 3am invitation writing." --RonEstrada

Jason said...

I have to vote for Ron's as well. Too funny. Not wholly unexpected, considering the source, but funny nonetheless...

Peg said...

My vote:

"A book release potty was the unfortunate result of Brandilyn's 3am invitation writing." --RonEstrada

Hilarious

Pam Halter said...

My vote: A book release potty was the unfortunate result of Brandilyn's 3am invitation writing.

Soooo funny!!

HeatherH said...

I know voting has closed and the winner's been announced (I did like Ron's caption) but I have to say I thought Margo's "Key of P" had me almost running to my own connected-to-the-plumbing toilet. :) Great story too!
