Brom Bones is here today from Sleepy Hollow
GR: Today we’re glad to have with us Brom Bones from Sleepy Hollow.
Welcome Brom Bones. Brom is short for something right?
Brom: My real name is Abraham Von Brunt but because of my incredible strength of limb I have earned the nickname Brom Bones.
GR: I understand that there are some misconceptions about you that you might be able to help us clear up.
First, what can you tell us about a young lady you have been rumored to have an interest in…a Katrina I think?
Brom: Well, (((scratches head))) yes that is the rumor. Do not misunderstand. Miss Katrina Van Tassel is a lovely girl. Though she cannot sing a note, she loves a good scheme and I suppose that is what I like about her. As a friend. I must stress, it is just a rumor that we are courting. My interests lie with someone else and that individual has a rather active imagination which I don’t need to rile by perpetuating a rumor about me and Miss Van Tassel.
GR: Hmmm…sounds interesting. Care to enlighten us who your jealous beau might be? Does she have a name?
Brom: Since most people in Tarrytown, New York in the eighteenth century where I live do not have access to the internet I suppose I can tell you this: it’s not a woman.
GR: Really? Well, aren’t you just full of surprises, Brom Bones?
Brom: So it would seem.
GR: You care to give us the name of your lover?
Brom: No, but if you want you can read our story in ‘THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW’ rewritten correctly this time by Deanna Wadsworth http://deannawadsworth.blogspot.com
GR: Are you saying Washington Irving got the story wrong?
Brom: Not wrong, per se. He just left out all the good parts.
GR: Its common gossip that you have a liking for a good prank? Was that part of the original story true?”
Brom: (((laughs))) I’m always up for a fight or a frolic. I find sometimes that a good practical joke is the only way to get a person’s attention if that person is intent on ignoring you.
GR: I’m assuming you are referring to your male love interest that you won’t tell us about. Now don’t you think that sometimes these kinds of jokes can go further than you intend?
Brom: Well that depends on what you mean by that. My last prank was impersonating the Headless Horseman and scaring the wits out of Tarrytown’s schoolmaster, Ichabod Crane. And as far as I am concerned, that turned out exactly how I wanted. Better even.
GR: I’d love to hear how you met your author Deanna Wadsworth and why you allowed her to write the true version of what happened in Sleepy Hollow all those years ago.
Brom: Miss Wadsworth calls herself ‘vanilla’ though I don’t really know what she means by that. She lives in Ohio, is married and has three dogs. Two cocks and a wiener. Cocker Spaniels and a Dachshund, respectively. She has a fascination with all kinds of bizarre and exotic things and these often finds their way into her writings. After we read what she did with Red Riding Hood, we knew she was the writer for us. (http://www.decadentpublishing.com/product_info.php?cPath=1_49&products_id=137&osCsid=8dhn7e85nsk58mv44fkjrjn0o2
GR Then you would say you have a good working relationship with Deanna?
Brom: Definitely. I chat with her on Facebook all the time (add these links too please!) http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001206469235 and a friend of mine is hosting interviews on her blog right now. http://deannawadsworth.blogspot.com Icha—I mean, my lover and I thought she would be the perfect one to tell our story while keeping with the old fashioned writing style of our time.
GR: Oops! You almost spilled the beans. But it sounds like we will have to read your book THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW if we want to know what really happened. Where can we find this book?
Brom: THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW comes out October 23, 2010 from Decadent Publishing http://decadentpublishing.com and soon after that you will be able to order it at Amazon for your Kindle.
GR: Thanks for visiting us today. I know the readers will be thrilled to learn so much about you and your author, Deanna Wadsworth, as well. She sounds mondo talented, and I see why you chose her to tell the tale.
