Welcome to the 44th installment of “You’ll Never Believe…”
For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.
Today’s “You’ll Never Believe…” celebrates the release of Avery Flynn’s latest book “Trouble on Tap (Sweet Salvation Brewery 3)”. Oh THIS BOOK SOUND SO GOOD!!! She’s an ex-supermodel that’s broke, and humiliated, and has to come back home, and HE’S an ex-marine now cop, with facial scars AND with a HUGE chip on his shoulder. Ohhhh I love bad-ass moody cops!!
In this installment of “You’ll Never Believe…”, the author tells us about how she found herself ankle deep in toilet water!
You’ll Never Believe – Family Edition By Avery Flynn
So I’m not the most graceful person in the world. In fact, I’m not even close. So it shouldn’t be a shock that the Flynn kids aren’t exactly known for expert coordination. That’s what brings me to the exploding toilet.
In our old house we had one of those toilets where you had to jiggle the handle to get it to stop running. Ugh. It was annoying, but jiggling was better than having to lift the tank lid, reach down into the cold water and tap the valve shut. Yuck.
It wasn’t the greatest system but it worked—right up until the day Flynn Kid 2 (who was six at the time) thought he was strong enough to lift the heavy toilet tank lid and push down the valve. Turned out, his mini-muscles weren’t ready and he dropped the tank lid…right onto the edge of the tank. The tank broke and water came gushing out—and when I say gushing I mean there’s a break in the levy rush of water.
Lucky for me, I grew up in rental housing and have learned a thing or twenty about emergency plumbing. I dove in and turned off the water to the toilet, turned around and realized there was water (fresh water thank God) up to my ankles.
It took about a billion towels and a dozen trips down to the laundry room to wash them, but we got it all cleaned up.
While it wasn’t funny at the time, we all laugh about it with Flynn Kid 2. Of course, he’s still not allowed to mess with the toilet tank lid. 😉
I promise there’s no toilet trouble in Trouble on Tap, but there is sassy, sexy fun and a romance that will make your heart speed up. 🙂
Tee hee!!! Flooding and plumbing scare me bad! I’ve had my own mishap or two myself. Like the time, on my BIRTHDAY, waiting to go out for dinner, when my washing machine filled up… and never stopped.
UGHHHHH. LOL!!! 😛
About Avery Flynn:
Avery Flynn has three slightly-wild children, loves a hockey-addicted husband and is desperately hoping someone invents the coffee IV drip.
She fell in love with romance while reading Johanna Lindsey’s Mallory books. It wasn’t long before Avery had read through all the romance offerings at her local library. Needing a romance fix, she turned to Harlequin’s four books a month home delivery service to ease the withdrawal symptoms. That worked for a short time, but it wasn’t long before the local book stores’ staffs knew her by name.
Avery was a reader before she was a writer and hopes to always be both. She loves to write about smartass alpha heroes who are as good with a quip as they are with their *ahem* other God-given talents. Her heroines are feisty, fierce and fantastic. Brainy and brave, these ladies know how to stand on their own two feet and knock the bad guys off theirs.
