Entangled Blog Hop!

Happy Halloween!!

I’m so glad you stopped by my website!! If you haven’t been here before, my name is Samantha Bohrman and I write for Entangled. My first book, Ruby’s Misadventures with Reality, is about a modern day Dorothy juggling her career, too many hot guys at once, and an unexpected mystery.

I figured I might post some Halloween-y stuff for this post, so I decided to look for Dorothy costumes online. I thought the people below had clever ones. I didn’t notice right off that they were missing their pants, etc. Pants or no, they’re pretty impressive costumes. Personally, I’d feel reluctant to paint all of those parts. So just in case you were wondered, I will not be painting myself blue for Halloween. Even if I was into that, I live in Minnesota and it’s supposed to snow. I’ll be wearing a hat that makes me look like a scarlet macaw is roosting on my head. I’ll probably pair it with pajamas.

If you like those costumes, you might also like my book! It also contains some costumes, a Wizard of Oz theme, and brief (but thrilling) nudity. Unlike the above picture, it doesn’t happen all in the same scene.

Rest assured, though, if you find a tin man or a scarecrow in my book, he will be the kind of guy you might enjoy seeing in nothing but silver paint and a tin foil hat. Today, someone on my street team (Hi Dana!) introduced me to a man she refers to as “Gandy Candy.” My hero never goes swimming (perhaps a mistake on my part!), but if he did, I’d like to imagine him like this:

    Happy Halloween to you! And one question for Ruby: What was the hardest part of writing this book?

    • Reply SamBohrman replied a year ago

      I got stuck in the middle for a while and didn’t know where to go—one of the problems of not carefully plotting! Thanks for stopping by the blog! 🙂

    I thought the costumes were pretty cool until I realized I could see Tin Man’s nipples. That’s when I noticed everything else. Well, it’s not that different from all of these “sexy” costumes that people are wearing.

      Shocking, I agree!

    Those were quite the costumes, glad none of them are my man, they all seem a little under endowed. Thanks for the chance to win your book.

    Reminds me of the story about how Buddy Ebsen (ya know, Jed Clampett) was supposed to be the Tin Man originally, but he had a terrible allergic reaction to the body paint. Couldn’t help remembering that when I saw the photo–I hope gray body paint is gentler now, for the dude’s sake!
