Run away with the circus!

Now I know that truth is indeed zanier than fiction. My book, Pi and the Fabulosa (slightly married) Twenty Four Hour Man is in print, available now through Amazon.com. Below is an excerpt and info on a fun new contest to win a basket of goodies. Tootles. Dana

The Excerpt:

My name is Pi, like pineapple. I wasn’t named after the tropical fruit or any of the Boston crème filled varieties but rather for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.
My mother was a math professor sprinkled in and amongst her other career as a cocaine addict. It’s a good thing she never had the son she wanted. Hypotenuse would be a hard name to live with.
Bernie was correct, of course. Even as I patted his bald head I knew something was most definitely not right. A whisper of fear circled in my stomach like the fog that swirled above my head. What was going on here? The current string of difficulties was more than coincidence. If I didn’t figure it out soon, I had the uneasy feeling that something bad was going to happen.
Very bad.

The contest: If you ran away with the circus, what would your job be? Drop me an e-mail with “circus” in the subject line. Tell me what circus job would be a fit for you and why. I’ll enter you in a drawing to win a basket full of circus themed goodies. www.danamentink.com
