I'm a Character In a Childrens Book!

Author Pat Hatt wrote a children's book titled Tune at High Noon and that book spent some time at the top of the Amazon Bestseller's list.



Mr. Hatt portrayed me as the sweet Goosy Air who opens the story and I was touched by his decision to do this. The story takes place in an Old West Town and is a classic tale of good vs evil and is done with rich and colourful illustrations.

A gamer of some renown also appears as a character in Mr. Hatt's book and he comes in at the end of the story. Now don't you want to know who that gamer is?

Well, you'll just have to buy the book to find out. You may click on the Link which will take you so Amazon where the book is available as a Kindle download.

Because I'm extremely tired and not thinking clearly/ such a nice person, I will give this book as a free gift to the first three people who ask for it.  If you are one of those three, you can contact me at onemadirishwoman@outlook.com I will only need your email address and you will receive a gift notice from Amazon for this book.

I'm off to the Land of Nod and will see you all when I wake up.

  1. With my name I can never be in a childs book or comic, In case the ink smudges and the L and I get too close together.

    1. Even worse - they might omit the "n" and you'd never be found again by anyone of the male gender ;)

  7. That does sound like a fun little story. Congratulations to Pat and well done to you (and this mysterious gamer) for getting in on it. It's always sweet and something special when something like that happens.

    1. I wasn't expecting it and it was a surprise that he wrote me as such a loveable character as he's always giving me such a hard time. Must have been a moment of weakness or some bad food.

    1. Now you know you don't need a kindle to have a kindle book. They have an app for your computer and the kindle cloud. I don't have one and I have loads of kindle books.

    1. I'm not interested in myself enough to be bothered. Jaysus the whole point of my hobbies is so that I don't have to think about me at all. I must avoid myself at all costs!

    2. that's my life tactics too, Annzie, but it's difficult escaping from ourselves :)

    1. Just wait about a week and you'll see what else he's done for me. It's absolutely amazing.

  18. Well, that is pretty cool.

    On a different subject, though, Games Workshop has just started pre-selling their new High Elf miniatures, and I'm in lust and can't afford any off it. I is so so sad.
    You should go look at them, especially the new phoenix castings.

    1. I can't afford to buy their stuff either. I wish I could as some of the pieces are really cool and I need to learn to paint their stuff. I bought both my Wood Elves and High Elves from Tom Meier at Thunderbolt Mountain. Best sculptor on the planet, great prices, nice guy and he gives you free swag. It's a win win all the way around. I'm going to buy his goblins next.

  19. I didn't know it had been released. I need to go order a copy right now!

    Hope you got plenty of rest, my friend.

    1. It's a great one and you're in it as well. This one is worth having in paperback. I need to see about getting one and having him sign it for me.

      I didn't rest as I have been in an intense phase of learning and painting. Rarely sleeping and hardly eating. I'm going to ride this wave until it crashes.

    1. Were you an evil arch villian? Now that would be cool, unless it's a biography in which case, you'd wanna hide that :)

    1. It was just so nice that I was a sweet character. Usually I'm portrayed by this author as a drunken Irishwoman. This came as a real surprise!

  22. Sweet is nice but I would be be happy with a drunken irish women!

  23. it is amazing isn't it? I bought it too and got it a week ago and I loved it, brought it home for my mum to read to her kids in school. We are in a book, we are totaly famous.

  24. Good stuff. I'm tempted, but will wait for grandchildren to purchase it

  25. That's so cool! You've been immortalized in a children's book! That's like when Hemingway immortalized his penis envy in every story he wrote...but different (oh sure, Hemingway didn't have issues with his wang size and that's why he was constantly trying to prove how manly he was, riiiiiight). Way more flattering, this is.
