Songs to Write to - The Quarterback Sneak

I thought I'd share my playlist for The Quarterback Sneak ( which is available for a special preorder price of 99cents).

These are songs that relate to my characters and story.

Demons - by Imagine Dragons
Love Remains the Same - by  Gavin Rossdale
Harlem - by New Politics
Trumpets - by Jason Derulo

Are there certain songs that remind you of a person or place? Share in the comments!

This is a line a song by Eric Church called Springsteen -  'Sometimes a melody sounds like a memory'. 
I love that line because it is so true for me.
For instance the song Jungleland by Bruce Springsteen takes me back to when when I was nineteen.
Going even further back Magic by Pilot takes me back to Knolls Summer Day Camp when I was 13!

The Quarterback Sneak is here!

The ebook for The Quarterback Sneak is available for preorder! Release date is December 2, 2014!
I think your are going to fall in love with Hayden and Liam.

I'm running a preorder special of only 99 cents! A week after the release date I'll be raising the price to 2.99

Meanwhile the audiobook and paperback is in the works!

Here is the blurb and links:

A recovering alcoholic, football player Liam McQueen seeks redemption on and off the field. So when the team's owner, the man who gave him a shot at a comeback, demands that Liam pretend to be engaged to his wayward daughter, it's a favor the reformed bad boy feels he can't refuse. 

After violating her probation, heiress Hayden Middleton must prove to the court she's changed her wild ways. To appease the judge, the tabloid queen agrees to a fake engagement, but there's nothing fake about the heat that sizzles between her and her father's saintly star quarterback.

Mastering the sex playbook isn't a problem for this wild couple. Outside the bedroom, this mismatched pair must plan a game strategy to confront their demons if their temporary arrangement has any chance of going long.

Will love come into play as the sinner and the saint go head to head?

Thank you for your support over the years! I couldn't have done it without my readers!

I Quit, I Quit Sugar

I made it through 4 of the 8 weeks of I Quit Sugar then I slid into the thoughts of

just this once
just this one day...

one day turn into two, into three.... and so on...

I did lose 2 inches off my waist and 5 pounds which you would think would spur me onto to glory, but..


I did notice that I'm less hungry when I don't have sugar which you would think would help me,


I will say this. I haven't overindulged. So that's something.

I guess.

Did you struggle with your weight?

Day 3 & 4 & 5 - I Quit Sugar

I'm so glad that the 1st week of the 8 week I Quit Sugar program is about cutting back and learning to read labels!

I've done great on not eat candy, cakes, and pre-package foods! I'm still figuring out breakfast but I found out in a pinch I can get a Sausage McMuffin from McDonalds as it only has 2 grams in it.
Today I spent my lunch hour at the grocery store reading labels.
I picked up a salad dressing I can use - SCORE!
Picking out yogurt is tricky. The full fat is supposed have to less sugar but I didn't find that to be true. Now the first 4.7 grams of sugar don't count. Um...I can't remember why....any who ....
I found one with 7 grams - a carmel moccochino greek yogurt.
Tomorrow I'll read more and make up a list of ingredients I need to make some of the breakfast items.

Small victory:  The husband has been hiding the candy but I was taking out the last bottle of soda (the soda isn't for me) out of the grocery bag and there were 4 loose Kisses in there!!!!!!!!!!!
But I didn't eat them!

Day 1 & 2- I Quit Sugar

My blog is usually about my writing and random items that interest me but for the next 8 weeks I'll be blogging about my 'I Quit Sugar' journey.

I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson is an 8 week detox program and cookbook.

Why am I doing this?

My psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis is at all time red alert stage. Yesterday  I woke up with aches and brain fog. I know it's the sugar I consume.
I eat sugar every day never mind the hidden sugars in our food.
Eating sugar is eating poison. Sugar causes inflammation. Inflammation causes a host of problems.

It's time. I'm ready.

The first week is about cutting back, reading labels to become aware of the hidden sugars, and getting everything you need to succeed.

A surprise: Balsamic Vinegar is 16% sugar!!!

So how did I do the first two days?
No candy, no cookies, no cake! And there is a big bag of chocolate in the house too! I didn't have one piece! But I think I had overdosed on candy the days leading up to this challenge so just looking at it makes my teeth hurt. So it really hasn't been that hard.
Another victory was not having barbeque sauce on my pork chops yesterday or ketchup on my hot dog today.

I purchased the book above but if you can check out Sarah's website and Pinterest boards ... here are the links below...
