Sharon A. Crawford has asked us to step in and wish you a happy new year. But before we do that, we – Dana Bowman and Bast Overture from Beyond Blood would like to sum up this year from our perspective between the book covers.
Dana: It’s been a good year for both of us, me especially as Sharon is channelling me, or so she says. But really it is me jumping out of the book, going in front of an audience and telling what I think of Sharon, her writing and some of her quirks. She really seems to have a thing about short people and making me three inches shorter than her? But she really gets me – my impulsiveness, sticking my nose in everybody else’s business…
Bast: She is a former journalist and that’s what journalists do.
Dana: You should know. You are a former crime reporter.
Bast: True. But Sis, you really need to get over this short height thing. Not even an issue.
Dana: You should talk. You’re 6’3″ I don’t think Sharon will ever channel you on stage.
Bast: Maybe not, but I’ve heard a writer friend of hers is interested in doing this.
Dana: Really. Actually that should be interesting. We can then both dis Sharon.
Bast: Why not just talk about how she writes with us?
Dana: Yes, she does do that, but it’s more fun to talk about her quirks.
Bast: Now, Sis, I don’t think that is a good idea.
Dana: Why not?
Bast: We shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds us.
Dana: Shouldn’t that be the other way around?
Sharon: Dana, Bast, stop! I asked you to extend a Happy New Year to all, not get into a sibling squabble. But I get it. You both were born December 31, so maybe that is behind all this. You know getting a year older.
Dana: Which year?
Sharon: Let’s just focus on this year going into next year. Now, all together…
Dana, Bast, Sharon: Happy New Year to everyone. May you write and read a lot and most of all be healthy and prosperous.
Sharon, Dana, Bast
