Contest Update ~~ Kat Reading Nekkid?



Whut?? Yes, it's true. Kathryn Magendie is up to wild things up on her mountain. Find out if she's just gone crazy or is this what authors have to do these days? Kat is reading from her new book SECRET GRACES sans clothing! (And it's c-o-l-d up there. Hope her neighbors don't have binoculars.)

Then think up other promo stunts and ideas she can attempt, and leave them in a comment for my contest here or below, and the one she's hosting at her blog. You could win signed books and special prizes.

Winners announced soon! Feel free to Retweet and/or pass it forward. We'll both love ya for it. :D (Plus, selfishly, I want lotsa people to suggest loony things for Kat to do!)

OMG - I have gone INSANE....what have I done *laughing* .....

But! I have been giving all this advice about "not taking ourselves so seriously" and to "have a little fun in all this publishing/writing madness" etc -- so, it's time I take some of my own advice....

oh geez -- oh dear me....

Jessica said...

You're kidding, right???

LOL!

Heading over! (not that I want to see her naked...LOL)

Kathryn Magendie said...

No, I am not kidding *laughing*

now, I'm not SHOWING anything - I mean, I'm insane but I'm not crazy *laughing*

Kathryn Magendie said...

And, as for the other suggestions, I'm working on them now ....one at a time.....

I am flabbergasted. And very impressed.

Debbie said...

You know, I met her when she was just a burgeoning author and she wasn't the least bit insane. Success has ruined this southern girl:)

Carol@ Writers Porch/ Book House said...

Who knew that a New Orleans win in the Super Bowl would cause fans to go crazy and read nekid?? I think you should superimpose you and Drew Brees reading it together????

Kathryn Magendie said...

*LAUGHING* - OMG these comments are making my Day! haw!!!!!

And LIC, a nekkid calendar - OMG OMG -- could we do it? A Poet's & Writer's nekkid calendar *LAUGHING* OMG!!! we could include artists too --haw !!

Angie Ledbetter said...

YEEEEEEHAWWWWWWW!! The Nekkid Book Tour. Coming soon to a town near you. :D

Deb@RGRamblings said...

Go Kat! Just can't wait to see what you do next!! You could try approaching your local police attachment or search & rescue squad for the loan of a bullhorn. Those boys are usually happy to help out.

Marisa Birns said...

Don't remember how I found myself here, but am go glad I did!

You are delightful!!! And obviously have a wonderful sense of fun and humor. Truly enjoyed your nekkid reading.

Hope that you took yourself over to a hot bubble bath after... :)

Brian said...

WOW...how do you top that one? Now all we need to do is find a blank billboard in the mountains of NC (preferably on a busy road)and a picture of Kat with nothing but her bear skin rug on.

Diane said...

She is quite the daredevil. No triple dog dares required for that lady!!! :O)

Kathryn Magendie said...

Deb - I'm going to contact the local theater first...esp since the local po po may not like it I'm hanging out the moonroof while Boopmobile is moving - erk *laugh*

Marisa! I'm glad you found us here, too *smiling* Soon as I finished that video, I ran and put on my gown and warm bathrobe and snuggled up!

Brian *LAUGHING* - omg -- wouldn't that be funny - "Got Nekkid?" Laughing

Diane - when I was a kid, my friends knew if they dared me to do something, I was going to try to do it -- I was stupid *laughing*

Kathryn Magendie said...

PS - I am copying these suggestions and then seeing which ones I can do....

I'm still thinking of that "Writer's Calendar" - wouldn't that be a hoot *laugh* Who's with me? who wants to do a calendar - Lives in Cave wants to be Ms April *laugh*

Julie Dao said...

Oh my gosh! That sounds ... freezing. Glad it's not me up there LOL.

Anonymous said...

Now you know that if you have no clothes on you are naked. If you have no clothes on and are up to something, you are nekkid. Another of Dad's definitions. Will wait on the sequel. Get Colby to play along too.

♥ Braja said...

Angie Gone Wild?
:))

Kathryn Magendie said...

Julie - it was a little chilly *laughing* but strangely exhilerating *laugh*

Oren! LAUGHING!

Braja - hmm, - yeah, Angie - when you gonna get nekkid and make me a Writer Calendar Girl photo?

Kathryn Magendie said...

So far folks: I have created a badge for my page to the left on the sidebar (cover of SG)-Carrie; I have read an excerpt while nekkid under a faux bear skin throw (Titus).

Now, I have taken Suldog's advice and contacted both Secret Deodorant for woman & PopSecret Popcorn ... I have one piece of proof, a number they gave me to show I'd contacted Secret Deod: The reference number for your question is '100220-001654'.

eu said...

Great video, love your voice. Does wearing a blanket count, though?

Kathryn Magendie said...

*laughing* - EU - it has to! I'd be breaking a few laws, I'm sure, if I acutally didn't toss that blanket over some parts of me -- although, I did consider taking off the blanket and just having my shoulders and head showing, but, oh well! :-) I am nekkid under that throw! *laugh*

Michelle H. said...

*stunned*

Well, you can now check off nekkid reading from the list. What's next? Nekkid writing? You could slap millions of Post-It notes all over your body. Of course, it won't be as warm as the fur.

JKS said...

I'd love to see Kat reading nekkid ala Austin Powers
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zl_295f530E
Surely someone would volunteer to, uh, direct?

Kathryn Magendie said...

Michelle - Laughing!...nope, that wouldn't be near as warm ...!

JKS..I'll check out that link--should I be frightened? Laugh..

Anonymous - can't help you there! sorry!

Deb Shucka said...

I loved the video. I love Kat. Maybe she'll start a new trend in publicity and marketing.

Glynis said...

Thanks for the chance to write on your blog Angie!
I am thrilled the calendar idea has taken off, and to be part of it! mmm nekkid? Yeah maybe LOL

Now for my challenge to Kat...Virginia Kate loved horse riding, sooooo I challenge you to horseback in a swimsuit ;0
