The Baby Bargain Blog Tour stop today is Reading Between the Wines. Hop over and enter the contest for the $5o.00 gift card.
For two weeks, THE BABY BARGAIN was on the B&N and Amazon Romance Contemporary bestseller’s list and I am thrilled. Yesterday a new crop of books released, probably knocking TBB off, but that’s okay. I never expected the amazing two weeks, and I want to thank everyone who helped put TBB there! I loved writing the book, but I had no idea it would be so well received. It’s absolutely the best kind of surprise!
But you know what my best moment was? Easter day were were all chatting, and BLB says, “Hey mom I was reading through your amazon reviews on THE BABY BARGAIN and people loved that book.
I was stunned. “You went and looked at the book and reviews?” BLB reads a ton of books, all non fiction military and politics. Just walking by his books can put me to sleep. He does not read romance. (My oldest son is more likely to read my books, which is awesome, but he has zero time right now.)
BLB answered, “Yep, after we talked on the phone the other day, I looked it up. Very cool, mom.”
I know, it sounds silly. But it so made my day.
Okay this was the best I could do for our Worthy Candidate today:
So is he worthy? You be the judge!

That’s so sweet. BLB is a good guy checking things out for you. The fact that he told you is so cool too.
The reviews have been great. I’m so glad you wrote it.
This guy seems worthy to me. I just wish he pushed that Shady Brady up a bit so I could really see his eyes :).
Have a good day.

Hey I want to be in the Cool Mom club. Yea you can get all the recognition in the world but it does not move you like your kid telling you you are cool. Congrats
Alright I guess I am being overly picky this morning but the japaness symbols do not go well on the cowboy image. Take off the hat and stop the mixed signals and I would consider him.

Kids can surprise us and that makes it all worthwhile! Good on BLB for not only checking but telling you how proud he is of you.
As for the candidate? Uhm…no. The hat is funky (and not in a good way!), the tats send mixed signals and I’m sorry but the waxed chest and spray tan look just doesn’t do it for me.

Viki, thanks on TBB. Now the guy…I’m just not finding the true hunks I want lately. Since I have to buy them I’m limited.

Kat, you’re really not being picky at all
You will get there with your kids. Mine are grown now, but during the teenage years…I was firmly in the Uncool Mom Club. I thought I was stuck there forever!

Silver, isn’t it great the way our kids surprise us though?
Sadly, I’m not disagreeing on the candidate. I’d like to defend him but just not feeling it.

Congrats on the book, Jen! I finished it yesterday and loved it!!! That’s pretty great that BLB read your reviews. What a great kid you have
I’m not really feeling this candidate either. He looks orange. That’s just wrong!
Happy Hump Day!
