Three reasons why I could really use a leprechaun!




I'm in the market for a personal assistant. Hi, all. Dana Mentink, here! Having a book out in May, June and two in July, has left me...well..slightly nutty. Hence, I could use a little helper who wouldn't mind working for nothing and doing all manner of weird jobs for me. I'm thinking a leprechaun might fit the bill quite nicely for three reasons.

1. They're already rich. We wouldn't have to bicker about the lack of salary, right? Leppy the Leprechaun would happily prepare book review mailings, send out FB party prizes, maintain my Twitter and Pinterest accounts for a minimal fee, since he's already got a pot of gold and all.

2. Leprechauns are stealthy and cunning which makes them the perfect assistants to advise on those twisty, turny suspense plots. The villian is smuggling stolen loot across state lines? Leppy ought to be able to devise a plan for that. Another needs to sneak into a house undetected and plant evidence to frame someone else? Well who's sneakier than a leprechaun?

3.  Leprechauns know how to have a good time. Leppy would be the life of the FB party, the laugh riot at the book signing, the jovial guest speaker at any Rotary luncheon. He'd sure get more laughs than I do, that's certain!

Well Leppy's got the job as my personal assistant, but he's got plenty of employment seeking relatives! What jobs would you have a leprechaun do for you?

Funny, Dana. I need a leprechaun too! And I didn't see a single one when I was in Ireland.

Happy St. Patrick's Day to all! :)
Actually, I could use a leprechaun to clean litter boxes...and feed cats (including all the many "strays" who visit my door daily for meals---I'm starting to think some of these sweet kitties aren't strays after all, but they like the brand of cat food I buy, LOL).
I enjoyed this post, and love the cover of your LIS! I do plan on ordering it.
Blessings, Patti Jo

LOL! Love it.

I'm laughing about the litter boxes, Patti Jo! :)

Bummer, Linda! If you can't find a leprechaun in Ireland...man!

Dana Mentink said...

Very cool idea, to have the Leprechaun take care of those litter boxes, Cat Mom!

I hope you enjoy the book!

For a moment, I was hoping you'd tell us the joys of having a virtual assistant and how to find the right one :)
