E.T. Phone Home?
Today is Extraterrestrial Abduction Day — so keep your eyes on the sky and be ready to duck, run, and hide. UFOs may be anywhere…and everywhere! And, they may want to ABDUCT YOU!
Okay, probably not... But if you’re like me, you may be fascinated with outer space. (Really, what’s not to like?!) In fact, I’ve been to space…well, um, my character has.
In IT’S A BLAST, the third book in the Chase “Superman” Duffy comic series, “I” meet Canadian astronaut Robert Thirsk before captaining a space shuttle to three different planets where I teach some cool E.T.’s how to grow canola. Wait…you haven’t read the book?! Well, you can order it from the Alberta Canola Producers’ Commission at email@example.com OR, you can check out this week’s story start challenge, write something, email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and WIN a copy!
Other ways to celebrate the day? Read science fiction novels or watch movies like E.T. But don’t forget to keep your doors locked—you don’t want to be abducted, right?
