Kristina Haecker is the LUCKY winner of the Santiago t-shirt!
Ricky’s lips brushed her ear. “And it’s a damn good thing he’s here at all, because you makin’ little noises, teasin’ me like you are, he’s the only thing keepin’ me from pushin’ up against the backstop and kissin’ the holy hell out of you.”Instead of a warning, his words sent a shot of disappointment through her. She dropped her arm, the bat coming to rest next to her leg.“You know, you make me want to do very bad things.” She shook her head.
I pose for a lot of pictures with a lot of different people. I could tell right away that Morgan and Siobhan were going to be fun.
They were really, really cool, but I could tell Morgan was a little reserved because she wouldn’t touch my butt in the pictures. So we stuck her behind the wall.
After the pictures were taken we talked for a long time. Honestly, it’s probably the longest conversation I’ve had with a customer.When Morgan asked if I wanted to be on her book cover, I thought, Yeah, yeah, she’s so full of shit.She kept talking and I kept thinking, What the hell? What’s a romance novel cover? Like a porn book? Like Fabio?Yeah, my hair’s not long enough. I couldn’t get the thought of 90’s rock stars out of my head. I got a Mohawk and tattoos.But then she took out her phone and showed me some of her other book covers. Okay, I could do that.When I gave her my number, I thought two things. One: This’d be really cool, but we’ll see. And two: Hopefully this lady’s not crazy. At least she has a family.
Everything turned out pretty good.
I’m on the cover of Lucky 13 and Morgan’s just crazy enough to be awesome.
