The cover


I've been talking about this for so long, I can hardly believe it's (almost) here. The first book cover that the first graphic artist made was HORRIBLE. It was so bad that I outright refused to even have the book published if it was going to have that cover. I told my editor that I had a graphic artist that had experience with books...and then I had to find one fast, which I did. The second graphic artist gave me a choice of ten different covers. Totally the wrong thing to do with me because if you give me any kind of choice and I don't have a definate opinion on it, I'll never make a decision. So I let a few of my friends help me in deciding. This is what we almost unanimously chose. So, don't tell me you don't like it 'cause then I'll show you the first one!

That's AWESOME!!!

I'm sorry this has taken so long! Here are my questions for you. Please let me know when you post it so I don't miss it! Thanks!!

Interview Questions:

1.) What was the race that got you "hooked?" Explain.
2.) What race or event are you most looking forward to this year? Why?
3.) If you had to pick a current game show to be on, which one would you pick? Why?
4.) I'm conducting a study: do you prefer a man in boxers or briefs?
5.) What brand of athletic gear are you most loyal to? Why?

To play along:
1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me."
2. I will respond by giving you five questions. (I get to pick the questions.)
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.
