#WriteWed The Boys of Summer and Rookie of the Year

I’m really excited to have released ROOKIE OF THE YEAR mainly because this was a series of my heart when I wrote it over 10 years ago. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR was originally slated for release in 2001, but the line for which I was writing went on hiatus and the book was never released. This is what the original cover looked like! Cartoon covers were big back then, but I like the new cover much better!

I love baseball as you know and back then very few publishers were willing to take on any kind of book with a sports hero. It was therefore quite awesome to be able to do the series about a sport I love. Plus, I got to give NJ their own team finally! Yes, we do have lots of minor league and independent ball clubs in NJ, but I wanted a Major League Baseball franchise in NJ. Maybe one day we’ll get one.

I hope you’ll check out ROOKIE OF THE YEAR. It’s specially priced at 99 cents for a limited time.

The next book in the series, A WINNING SEASON, will be out soon!

Fun Friday – Tough Movie Choices

Superheroes or outerspace? Futuristic versus anarchistic? I am in the throes of making some tough movie choices this month since I’m trying to be more frugal, but there are three – count them three – movies that so need to be seen on the big screen! Such tough choices.

First there’s X-MENS: ORIGINS WOLVERINE. Hugh Jackman. What can I say. Very hot. Love superheroes. But, I suspect there aren’t as many big screen action scenes in this one compared to the other two. Here’s a trailer for you to watch!

Then there is the latest installment of the STAR TREK franchise starring sexy Chris Pine playing a bad boy Kirk. It looks like this would be a good one to watch on the big screen and it’s a tough choice between this one and my last possibility. What do you think? Does the trailer snag you?

Finally, the one that will probably win the battle since both hubby and I looked at one another and said, WOW! It’s got hottie Christian Bale, although his latest antics have worn away a lot of the hotness factor. Still, this is another franchise that I love and as Arnold said, “I’ll be back.” The franchise is back and it’s looking really good. What do you think?
