For the record, yes, everyone who read It Was Only On Stun!, there is holdover from that book -- you might recognize the character of author Matthew Kovach.
In this scene, Sean Ryan has just finished reading a section of a parody written by Kovach on his blog.
The parody title is Tearful Puppies Bite Back.
Yes, I'm subtle.
Anyway, Sean has just finished something called "Minions of the Puppy Kickers," which starred Fred Moshevsky, and his bossses, Terry and Patty Smith-Smythe-Smits, editors of Rot books.
Other characters include...
Jesse James, nicknamed "Shiva, destroyer of worlds."
Gary Castelo, the Intergalactic Lord of Hate.
Rachel Hartley, Vile and Glamorous Space Princess
Orion Matthews, professional editor
Kendall Adler, creative director for Rot Books
And Rot authors Johnny Prada and Jerry David
Sean Ryan looked at the iPad in amazement at the last whole sentence. Wow. Kovach went there? He wrote it down? I have to ask him how fast he was sued after that. Which one was written? Slander? Libel? Gotta keep up with my legal terms. Lord only knows how many people will come after me now that I'm back in the States. Wonder if I offended enough people last time out.
