A Word on the Next Few Weeks

Look, ma! No hands!

Um. Sorry. Let's try again.

I'm not here! Well, technically I am here as I'm typing this, but I'm not here when you're reading this. Yes, it's worse than you've feared: you've been trapped in a Kurt Vonnegut novel.

So! I'm going to be away from the office for a little while and will not be posting "live." But as you can see, through the WONDERS OF THE INTERNET the blog will be on autopilot and it will be as if I've never left. Spencer Tyra Heidi Phil Keoghan Collier Strong Bachelor. See? You won't even miss me.

I have lined up a stellar crew of guest bloggers who will be keeping you company when I'm away. I will not be around to answer questions in the meantime, so if regulars could please fill in as needed and help the uninitiated I would greatly appreciate it.

Tomorrow we will be hearing from international bestselling author Jeff Abbott, and after that.... well, you'll just have to see.

So please, have the run of the place but no roughhousing and mind the babysitter! I've already placed an order with the pizza parlor. Ta ta! See you on December 1st!

Hi, Nathan,

You will be missed. How cool, though, to be trapped in a Kurt Vonnegut novel. Whoa... And how cool that Jeff Abbott will be here! This blog is the best!

About the babysitter - Do we have to behave?

Ryan Field said...

Enjoy your time away! :)

Try not to miss us too much while you're gone. And send us a POSTCARD!

dan radke said...

You're just behind on your NaNo novel, aren't you?

JIMBO said...

Glad to hear someone's got your back. Have a great time off.

Don't worry, Nathan, I'll keep these kids in line. :-)

Deaf Brown Trash Punk said...

I will be missing, too :-(

to Saudia Arabia, here I come.. ugh

Lady Glamis said...

Hope a vacation is why you're missing . . .

What kind of pizza did you order? And are you writing a NaNo novel? Well, guess we'll have to wait and see since you're gone.

Now, where's that babysitter?

Anonymous said...

Have fun. Be well. We love you.

And for leaving us here by our lonesone you will be expected to offer a FIRST PARAGRAPH CONTEST upon your return!

Who's with me?

Derek Gentry said...

I just pray you didn't get that Miss Snark to babysit again...she's really mean!

Julie Weathers said...

Whoa, no Nathan until December 1st?

All right, taking bets on:

1. Where Nathan is going.

2. What Nathan is doing.

3. How surprised he will be to learned his blog has been blognapped.

4. How much will he pay for its return.

1. Nathan is going to Mexico.

2. He is getting married.

3. Very, but his new wife will be very supportive during his crisis.

4. He will offer to critique a complete manuscript for the return of his blog unharmed.

Of course, unharmed is in the eye of the beholder.

Who ordered beer to go with the pizza?

I hope the babysitters allow us to eat too much sugar and watch dirty movies. Have a wonderful time away!

Anne Dayton said...

For some reason I have the strangest urge to rent Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead.

Bye Nathan! You will be missed! Here's hoping publishing doesn't fall apart without you!

Is he sweet to take care of us while we're gone, instead of just going dark like some other agent blogs I could mention . . .

Anonymous said...

oops, while HE'S gone.

Other Lisa said...

I'll have a Margherita - the pizza, not the drink, and a glass of your best house Red please...

Have fun, Nathan!

Melanie Avila said...

Where in Mexico? I'm in Mexico! But not because I want to stalk or anything... just curious.

Anonymous said...

I bet Nathan is getting married and going on his Honeymoon!!!!!

Jean said...

Geez. I haven't had a babysitter in ages. I really must be in a Kurt Vonnegut novel. And somebody else ordered the pizza? I am so won over. Plus we get cool guests? Wow. Very cool. Way better than off the air static!

ChrisEldin said...

Have fun!
:-)

*pssst, everyone....he's gone now. time to partay*

Elyssa Papa said...

Oh, have fun!!! You'll be missed while you're away.

Aubrey said...

We'll miss you, and we'll try not to have too much fun while you're gone. ;) Have fun doing whatever you're doing!

Lynne said...

Google magic? Honeymoon? Yay!
Somebody order some food and drink.
Let's celebrate!Chanting: we'll be good while Nathan's gone, we'll be good while Nathan's gone, we'll be good...um, really nice and quiet so as not to disturb the neighbors.
Somebody turn up the stereo!

lotusloq said...

Nooooooo! Waaaaaaa! No witty Tyra comments! No reality TV insightful analyses. I'm gonna be going through withdrawal. The sitter can just find me whimpering in the corner with the shakes.

Seriously, Nathan, have a great time off! and thanks for arranging for us to be taken care of. We'll try not to tear the house down.

Nathan Bransford said...

Hello! Yes, I'm breaking the fourth wall or something from my time away.

Guys, as you may have noticed, this is a corporate/professional blog and I don't tend to post much about personal stuff. So I ask that in this time of mystery people respect what remaining privacy exists these days and use Google the way it was intended: to research your book. Seriously get back to work!!

Ok, now I'm gone for real this time.

Nathan Bransford said...

(btw, that last comment referred to some now-deleted posts in case it's confusing).

ok, NOW I'm gone. I think.

Michelle Moran said...

Congratulations! And have fun!!!!!!

Haste yee back ;-) said...

You've joined the Golden Gate Angling and Casting Club and your off to a fly casting tournament?!?!

I spent years there... it's directly across from where they keep the Buffalo in GG Park.

tight lines!

Haste yee back ;-)

Lupina said...

You deserve some time off, and private time at that. Thanks for conscienciously having us taken care of in your absence, you could have just filled the freezer with frozen corn dogs and left us locked in until your return. Have an excellent time and send a postcard if you can!

N W Wemmick said...

DaaaAAAAaaaD!
She Pushed me...

-Enjoy your break

Scott said...

For those of you who don't think Nathan will be busy taking all of our suggestions in the last post and passing them off on his own in a country-wide book tour, I'd just like to say awwwwwww, you're so cuuuute.. ;)

Seriously though, good luck in whatever you're doing, Nathan.

Quick, look in the cupboards. He must have hidden the booze somewhere.

Polenth said...

Yay! I need to find an orange t-shirt for my Nathan costume. Then I'll be all set to answer questions.

Mya said...

Nathan,
Have a wonderful time wherever you are. I have just one request please return with the ultimate surprise... you are secretly a publishing super-hero and you have saved the world of publishing.
Well you are my hero; love your blog.

Diana said...

You care about us SO MUCH that you've even found us a babysitter? Wow, I'm touched!

dernjg said...

So long as it's not Slaughterhouse V when the firebombing starts, I could live in a Vonnegut world. Bring on the Monkey House.

Julie Weathers said...

The babysitter isn't here yet, so I brought some Texas lemonade to go with the pizza. Why yes, that is an empty everclear bottle, why do you ask?

I have a feeling Martha and Tilley will be showing up to help with the babysitting.

Jacqueline T Lynch said...

He didn't tell us not to play ball in the house. I guess that means we can.
