Name your book, crzqltr! You won today. I have 5 ebooks out. Visit my website or blog to decide which one you want. Then please e-mail me with your choice. Congratulations and thanks for blogging with us today!

I thought I'd treat you all with a picture of my husband. How do you like it? Okay, I admit it's sexy, but he's an actor and being paid big bucks to make out with this no body. He's tall, dark and handsome. Perfect, actually. Not an ounce of spare flesh anywhere with rippling muscles and a washboard stomach. He has Viking legs, too. You know, just like the kind you see on the cover of those romance novels. Thick and powerful.

He's still a romantic. Wooing me with candlelight and wine in the evenings before bed. We've been married for almost ten years and he's never missed a night. I'm a very lucky woman. I have it all.

And then I wake up. I must have fallen asleep in my easy chair. I glance over at my other half, I refuse to say better half, and there he is. Old and bald, sound asleep with his mouth open and a cookie hanging half out of it. Drool dripping down one of his chins and his thick coke bottle glasses sliding down his crooked nose. And best of all he's wearing his thin faded blue pajamas that do nothing to disguise his man breasts and pudgy torso. Ever notice how some men gain weight from the waist up but from the waist down their bodies look like they belong to someone else?

I smile when he half snorts half yawns, nearly sucking the cookie down his throat. I think he's waking but he only seeks a more comfortable position. All of a sudden the TV station changes and I realize he has his finger on the remote. His glasses slip down to his upper lip. Then I watch as our cat sneaks over and steals the cookie out of his mouth.

My laughing must have woken him because the next thing I know he's jerking awake and looking over at me like a guilty child. He straightens up and glances down at the cat, who's wolfing down his cookie. Then he looks at the TV. The Golden Girls had replaced the history channel, something about WWII.

"Why did you change the station? I was watching that show."

I say nothing, just smile at him, and realize I love him just as much now as I did when we first got together. He's perfect for hero:)

Leave a comment on any of our posts and by 4:00 today (10/1) one person wins a surprise. Winner will be announced on this blog so be sure to check back.

Group blogging

I love the idea of a group blog. Different authors, each with their own day to post, sharing their views, writing experiences and anything else that interests them. So much more varied than the one-author blog, with endless possibilities.

And I can't wait to learn more about my fellow bloggers! They're an amazing group of women and I know that this is going to be a fun, and enlightening, experience.

I'll share a secret with you. I'm so thrilled about this experience that although my day to blog is Friday, all the way at the other end of the week, I've already got my blog topic in mind. Yes, it's true. I know what I want to chat about already. By Friday I'm going to burst!

Until then, though, I'm going to sit back, relax, and enjoy listening to Debbie, Kathleen and Margaret.

Have a great Sunday! Here in the northeast autumn has arrived so today I'll be picking the last of the summer veggies from the garden as my husband dashes behind me with the tiller. Yes, life in my house is going to be very exciting today! ;-)

A Little About Debbie

I am a proud author for Whiskey Creek Press and in January 2008 a proud author for their torrid line. I absolutely love the publisher and their staff, who edit our up-coming releases to perfection, and create such beautiful book covers. In fact, I think they have some of the most beautiful book covers out there.

I'm from Maine but live in Florida with my hubby. Our kids are grown with families of their own. We have one spoiled tabby named Woofy and are hoping to add a little sister for him soon. My life is simple. I enjoy traveling, if it doesn't mean flying too much. But I love to cruise! I've been to the Bahamas, Alaska, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Greece, and France just to name a few. My all time favorite place to mini vacation is St. Augustine, Florida.

I've been writing for as long as I can remember but only submitted, at the encouragement of my family, a few short years ago. Research showed me that epublishers were on the rise and got your books out to the readers much faster than the traditional NY houses. The good news is that Whiskey Creek Press books are offered as ebooks and print books, for those of you who like to hold a book in your me:)

Well, it's sci-fi Saturday for me so I must go now. Have a great weekend!
