How To Hook....and Keep!



Yay for Tina! My copy of HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE arrived Monday and I can't wait to dive into it! For those who don't know, Tina's first book, TOP TEN USES FOR AN UNWORN PROM DRESS was an adorable teen-lit and one I still recommend to every teen I meet!




Today I am doing another fun giveaway: A "How To" basket. In it you will receive a copy of HOW TO HOOK A HOTTIE as well as copy of my debut novel HOW TO SALSA IN A SARI. That's right! Two giveaways in one!




All you need to do to win is leave a comment!




This is "Hottie" week on the Buzz Girls Blog and I'm talking about "What next?" So you have Mr. Hottie....now what? How to keep him interested?




  1. Have a LIFE! Please continue to do all the awesome things you used to do when he fell for you. I guarantee you he liked you because you had tons of interests, friends, talents, etc. Did you used to go salsa-dancing with your friends once a week? Keep on doing that! If he wants, he can join you..if not, so what? It's important for you to continue to be that same person...plus, it gives you plenty of new things to talk about!


  2. Don't give in all the time. Do you agree to the restaurant he want, or the movie he's been dying to see? Don't! Every other time, YOU decide beforehand where you want to eat, who you want to hang out with, which movie you want to see. Super-decisive = super-sexy!


  3. Dress up for him! Yes, after you've been together for a while, you don't need to blow out your hair every day, or do makeup everyday...but every once in a while, go all out! Do the hair, makeup, jewelry, nice outfit thing tell him, "Baby, you're coming with me!" and take him out for a fun night on the town.


  4. Keep the surprises coming! Get dramatic highlights, buy those skinny jeans you've been eyeing, take a cooking class! Don't become super-predictable....always keep him guessing...and I guarantee, he will never become un-hooked!

i realy agreed on the first point that talked about still being yourself! to me that's the most important thing. a little change is good, but staying true to yourself is even more important

Wendy Toliver said...

Great advice! I especially like the last one, surprises. I am always ready to try something new, even if I make a fool of myself, and I know that part of me is really attractive to my husband. (he tells me so anyway!) ;)

Love your contests! I'd love to own both books. Great advice - even for those of us who are "old and married". The best advice you've given.... be yourself. Why would you want to have someone fall for a fake you??
