In several Asian cultures, there is a mythological beast called the Kirin. According to Wikipedia, the Kirin heralds the arrival of a wise sage or illustrious ruler. It’s appearance is a good omen and brings the one who sees it prosperity.
Not only did I see the Kirin, but I kissed him when we discussed the late summer release of my novel Dead with Envy and my short story “Strange.” Seems that kiss had a powerful effect; the Kirin’s eyes blazed! He promised me lots of readers and a successful new career as a best-selling author. Wow.
He urged me to get cracking on my next murder mystery, One Way Ticket to Las Vegas. Alrighty then!!
I’ve heard kissing Alan Rickman has the same effect, I’ll let you know when I got close enough to him one day. 😉
Make his eyes burn red, baby!
I’m prepared – my time will come – still awesome to be encouraged though, thanks for that.
