Dear Sir or Madam, will you read my book?

Sorry I've been missing, but I've been working hard on The Quarterback Sneak. And truthfully I've had nothing witty or insightful to say. I was procrastinating a bit today and made this cute sign. I love the song Paperback Writer by The Beatles so I put a little twist on it. The things I do to amuse myself....

And he's not even half-naked...



What a sexy pic and he's not even half-naked! There is a great Facebook page called ShowYour Soft Side that is dedicated to stopping animal abuse in Baltimore. It's a shame that a program is needed. 
Nate McCouth of the Baltimore Orioles helped out as did other men for all walks of life.
I chose this one to share on my blog because Nate looks a lot like my character Liam McQueen of The Quarterback Sneak.

Which gown should I wear to the Oscars?

Not that I'm going, but a girl can dream...
And while I don't dream of winning for Best Actress, I do dream of a nomination for Best Writing (adapted screenplay). Of course I still have to write said novel that is Oscar worthy. But I have a plan...of sorts...meanwhile I can have fun picking out the dress. So help a girl out... which dress should I wear to the Academy Awards?

A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you. ~Fran├žoise Sagan

I don't own many dresses. But I do have a lot of clothes. Too many. Too many that I never wear. So much so that I have spread out to my husband closet. But he is resigned to this and besides it gives him a reason to tease me.
But on a recent snow day I pulled EVERYTHING out of my closet.


I wiped down the closet and vacuumed the floor. Then I began the tedious process of deciding what to throw out and what to keep. I had to face hard facts... the leopard print mid thigh skirt looked super cute ....in my THIRTIES. I haven't worn the skirt in more than a decade. REALLY? Why am I keeping it?

Anyway, here is the result. The bag in the corner there is what I'm giving to the nearest clothing charity bin. Not bad. But not enough to give up my space in my husband's closet.   

Is there a piece of clothing you just won't give up on?

Huddle Up

 Huddle Up is part of Sports Romance Blog 
Hop. I asked Angel O'Malley, the heroine of Huddle Up, to stop by and share her Beer and Pretzel Cupcakes recipe that she made for my Super Bowl Party. (The team her husband Billy Burner plays on didn't get in this year..shhhh)


1 pkg (16.5 oz) dark chocolate fudge cake mix.
1 cup of beer 
                                         3 eggs 
1/3 cup oil

Preheat oven to 350 and line 24 muffin cups 
with cupcake lines. Mix the ingredients above
on medium spread for 2 minutes. Divide among liners. Bake 18-20 minutes. Cool completely. 

Take 1 can of icing and add a splash of beer and several tablespoons of green food coloring - mix. Then chill icing for a 30 minutes. 

 Ice cupcakes and trim with crushed pretzel pieces. Place a chocolate football on top. (make sure to unwrap the foil before eating the football)

Huddle Up:
When Angel O'Malley is left penniless by her deceased father's gambling debts, she is forced to sue pro football player Billy Burner for child support. Blindsided with a five-year-old daughter, he tackles fatherhood with the same commitment he gives to the game, but he has his eye on a bigger prize: Angel's heart.

She agrees to Billy's plan to play house to ensure the new father makes no rookie mistakes. Though their passions burn hotter than ever they must overcome old betrayals, past hurts, and new insecurities if they are to prevent history from repeating itself.

Can a long ago summer love turn into an everlasting one?
