Good Morning, before I go too far and turn the blog over to Brodie, I’d like to introduce him. Brodie Mark is my antagonist in Rebel Souls, my upcoming science fiction romance release with Decadent Publishing. He will be one of the hosts for the LLL Bash this Valentine’s Day and will keep you all posted with any updates. If you have any questions, please feel free to address him directly. He prefers it that way. Okay, without further delay, I turn you over to Brodie Mark.
“Good Morning, off-worlders. My name is Brodie Mark, leader of the Nexian Underground, club owner, and one of the hosts for Backward Momentum’s, Love, Lasers and Light Swords Valentine’s Day Bash.”
*Grabs a chair, straddles it, resting arms on the back.*
“Before we get started, I want to tell you a little about the party, who’s coming,” *grins,* “who’s attending,” *chuckles,* “and who has no business being in my club.” *Pulls laser and sets it on the table.*
“First off,” *strokes laser,* “I won’t tolerate rudeness in my club. If you don’t have anything nice to say—get out, before I escort you out from the business end of my laser. Sorry, I won’t apologize. My club—my rules. Any posts that bash authors, science fiction romance, or any of my patrons, will be promptly deleted, and your entries into the contests, null and void. We speaking the same language?” *Looks around.* “Good. Everyone is here to have fun. Let’s keep it that way. *Spots Jessica.* Speaking of which… Hey, sweetheart. What’s a nice writer like you doing with a group like this? Come over here.” *Kicks chair out and nods.* “Take a seat and hand me that guest list, will you.”
*Inserts chip Jessica hands him in a holo-cube and hits the button.* “We may have some late bloggers who haven’t sent back their RSVP. I’ll keep you posted. For now, this is the lineup. Entering the give-aways will be easy. All you have to do is leave a comment under the post. Yes, bloggers may participate—you’re guests too. You can comment as much as you like, but it will still count as one entry per post. The more posts you comment on, the better your chances of winning. The bash runs until midnight, when the pumpkin turns into a rocket ship, and I collect entries and draw winners.”

“Now, as a surprise to the bloggers, I have three prizes from http://www.thinkgeek.com/ to give to the authors of the top three posts.” Looks around and smiles. “So, to keep it fair, because I don’t like popularity contests, I have impartial judges lurking around on the blog that will let me know at the end of our bash, who they’ve judged to have the best posts. I won’t say who they are, so you can slip them some credit, or get your friends to hold them hostage. I don’t work that way, but you’re welcome to try to get it out of me. Bribery is never turned down—even if it won’t get you anywhere—well, almost no where.” *Raises hands.* “I’m a guy; it’s the nature of the proverbial beast.”
*Rises from seat*
"See you around."
