A Year in Pictures

A Look Back at 2018

I wasn’t very productive as far as writing [or marketing] goes but I made a few memories and I ain’t mad about that. 😀

Some of the books got a new cover, you can see them here if you’re so inclined, or you can look at a few of my pictures from 2018.

Man that flew by. Oh well…

Hasta la vista 2018, I’ll be back & here’s wishing all of YOU a HaPpY 2019!!

Waiting (Mad Monday – Tis the Season)

The lines are long this time of year. So while you are waiting take a peek at this past post.

Yeah, that was December 2012 and a lot of folks are still waiting.

And look at this cat while you’re here. Just look at her!

Maddie Matilda! Ha! As if she had a legitimate reason to be mad. Oh, I forgot, cats don’t need a reason.

Hmph. Tis the season…

Merry Christmas y’all. 🎄

Playing with Frames (Mad Monday)

How about that frame? Isn’t it cute?

Of course it is. Maybe a little lame… a lame frame ( 😀 I crack me up) but cute nonetheless. Facebook turned me on to the idea.SMOKE FREE

So what am I mad about now?

I’m mad in a good way about the sheer funness (yeah, funness is a word – look it up) in creating frames but I’m kind of pissed annoyed that Facebook would not let me use the actual book cover for Smoke Free because of the cigar. Yeah, it sends a bad message and encourages smoking. WTF?!

And I love this book cover…

The hubby designed it and that cigar was his special touch.

Smoke Free

Anyone that has read Smoke Free knows smoking is the least of Erwin Smutter’s problems. LOL. But hey, I ain’t judgin’ and I do not want to be the cause of someone picking up a stogie.

I would rather you pick up a copy of Smoke Free instead.  For 99¢ or less it might cure you. 😉

 

 

And Heeyy, don’t I look mad as a hatter and bat-shit cRaZy  in this frame? Well I am supposed to, it tis the season. HaPpY HaLloWeEn Y’all!

Mad Monday (The other Janna Hill)

I get some interesting questions from time to time and usually love to answer them but when you get the same few questions over and over and over …

Are you still doing voice over? …

What’s it like being a puppet? …

Is so & so still alive? …

What ever happened to? …

It makes one wonder what the hell are you talking about and when one wonders they google, in this case they google themselves.

Don’t act like you’ve never googled yourself. 😉

So I googled Janna Hill

Declaring I am the real Janna Hill apparently is not enough.

There is always someone, someone, someone claiming to be the real Janna Hill, that is until the bills come due.

Scary huh?!

Let me be clear on this Mad Monday, I am not mad at those asking questions (I am quiet amused by most questions) and I am not mad at those playfully pretending to be the real Janna Hill (I encourage it – it’s funny) but I am mad at Google. That’s right Google – I am mad at you! Google that!

Do you see the problem?

They have combined two popular Janna Hills’ into one bio.

Sooo me [being the fixer I am] contacted Google to remedy the error.

After tirelessly sending supporting link after link after link after link and documenting me as the author of said books I really thought the matter would be solved but nope!

I see how some of our photos might even seem like the same person. . . NOT!

A few days later I received the following response:

“Thank you for submitting feedback on Google Search. You’re receiving this email to update you about your submission. We determined no changes to Janna Hill were needed based on your feedback.”

What???

I am The Real Janna Hill (I have a tee shirt to prove it)

AND I am a google reviewer [technically a local guide] so one would think my input would carry a teensy bit of influence.

But nooo! How dare I be so arrogant?

So I will answer here the best I can regarding the other Janna Hill.

The other Janna Hill is apparently no longer doing voice over, the above link reports she is deceased (c. 1993) and survived by at least one daughter. I do not know about other cast members of Captain Scarlet and the Mysterons but hopefully this link to Fandom will help you.

My condolences to her fans and RIP other awesome Janna Hill
