Bloggiesta Is Almost Here!

I am happy to be participating in Bloggiesta this next week. I was able to participate in one awhile back, and I found it very motivating. I am not certain how much time I will get to do things this next week, as there is so much on my  plate work wise and my husband will be out of town--BUT I am going to try to do my very best. 

What is Bloggiesta?

Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon (sometimes over a weekend, sometimes four days and this time one week!) where we as bloggers gather together to help each other work on all sorts of blogging tasks, stuff that we often put off and avoid. Or stuff that we’re scared of trying. Or stuff that we haven’t had time for. But during Bloggiesta all that stuff suddenly becomes fun! There are others doing the same thing ! So, it becomes a party! Wait, no. It’s a FIESTA!

Have you ever participated in Bloggiesta? If not, I am going to encourage you to give it a whirl. I know I always have a list of things I want to do here at Love. Life. Read and Bloggiesta is the motivation I need to try some of those things.

Back in the Game
By Lori Wilde

What is the Book About:

New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde welcomes you to Stardust, Texas . . . where dreams come true and love is always right around the corner.

Wanted: ghostwriter. Must be female, a baseball fan, and have a great pair of legs.
Ex-pitcher Rowdy Blanton never saw a woman he couldn't conquer or a team he couldn't beat. And now that he's off the field he's ready to tell all about when he played the field. So he chooses Breeanne Carlyle to do the job-she's got the requirements, but more important, there's something about her that makes him want to be a better man.
Convinced there's more to Rowdy than a good fastball, a wicked smile, and a tight pair of pants, Breeanne can't help but be tempted. After all, it's boring always being the good girl, and Rowdy dares her to be just a little bad. The stakes are high, but win or lose, this time Breeanne's breaking all the rules playing the game of love.
