What would be pictured on your book cover?   And for extra credit… why?

This is the my 2nd Edition Cherries Over Quicksand book cover. The reason they look so happy is, well for one thing they are a happy couple. My models are family and they make a point of telling people that they have read the book! lol! My favorite response from readers is that… they just want to be nice to their woman or man because they “get it” now, and want to live the fun romance they began with… forever! That’s always pure happiness for me to hear!

It looks like my next book cover will be a deep ruby red and a little mysterious. Now that my readership is over thirty percent male, I am really having fun with the graphic-creative (is that a word? 😉 ) side of authoring.

I am told by industry professionals that the title and the author name should always be readable from across the book store, that the lettering should not be too fancy and the graphics should tell a story or the theme of the book. I like that my books are placed next to Anthony Robbins books (Ricardo… Robbins) on the book shelves, it’s such a cozy and interesting place to be… and very busy!

What would be pictured on your book cover? And why? Can we have a little hint about your story? ;D

Love Bites with Rhonda and Jon: Dating with Romance and Humor

This is our first Love Bites show on-camera after we started our Love Bites radio show in February of 2012.  The set is not up on my side yet but that’s all right because the curiously blank background gives us all a really fast glimpse into Jon’s quick wit right off the bat.  Fun show!

Fun Trivia:  The call-in Love Bites radio show segment Jon references on this YouTube T.V. show produced a happy couple!  Yes, a man and a woman in two different cities in California called into our radio show about dating while raising children, afterwards they decided to meet and have been posting photos of the new couple at scenic designations like boating with super happy/romantic captions and comments.  And yesterday a photo of the couple in a beautiful park having fun with characters putting on a Fall show was posted!  Fun couple… we are very happy for them! ;D

So, dating… especially first dates, can be fun or just a funny story you might tell your grandkids one day but singles should decide to get out there and begin their romantic adventure… a wonderful he or she might walk into their path today.

Guys… yes I know women can be confusing and ladies…even confident guys can be shy too, but there are simple formulas for getting a great first date… and simple ways for her to let him know she wants him to ask her out.  We cover so much fun dating research here between laughter, that the newly dating might want to watch this twice before watching the next episode.  I just re-watched this show and was reminded about the Harley dates and the married ladies with their arms full of babies and groceries while her man is happily bouncing a basketball… those ladies now wish they had let him open their doors on dates so he knows from the beginning that she wants/expects and knows she deserves a gentleman… forever, just like he deserves the lady he wants and expects forever.

I’m not sure how this show moved into the body and mustache hair subject… but Jon wants to know if women like hair or not… how do I answer that? LOL!!   Well, I did and laughed pink-faced at the same time because, well… you’ll see if you have time to watch the show at this link here.  Don’t worry we keep it clean, PG… and smelling pretty! ;D
