Hey, everyone! Happy V-Day!

I don't usually promote new books, but one of the gals over at WOW! Women on Writing, Annette Fix, has a new book out and I thought it sounded interesting enough to agree to give you the lowdown here...
The Break-Up Diet: a memoir by Annette Fix is the true story of a 30 something single mother/aspiring writer who is working as an exotic dancer, searching for Prince Charming, and trying to find a perfect balance between her dreams and her day-to-day life as Supermom.

Please visit The Break-Up Story Forum (
A place where women can go to read and share their break-up and dating stories. Check it out and join the fun!

Annette Fix is the Senior Editor for
WOW! Women On Writing, an author, and spoken-word storyteller, living in Laguna Niguel, California with her Danish Prince Charming, her aspiring photographer son, and two rescued dogs.

If you purchase "The Break-Up Diet", let me know! (It could be the perfect Valentine's gift for a single friend!)

And now, onto a new video starring my son and me.

It's on the romantic topic of "Kissing Toads". Hope you like it!

Thanks for supporting my book! =) I loved the video with your son! That looks exactly like something I would have filmed with my son, if I had the technology back then. But, he's 19 now and I'm not so sure it would have quite the same cuteness factor if I tried to do it now! LOL

Oh, that book sounds like great fun! I'll get that for my daughter, as well.

I have random problems with videos, sorry I couldn't see it.

Baby got back. Oh yeah.

I don't even know you, yet I adore you. I watched that video with you and your beautiful son and rather marveled at how you mother. Gosh, I got a bit vaklempt. You and your son are just the bee's knees!

I go to the library for my books. Bigtime cheapskate. I don't buy furs either. =)

Of course! I hope you enjoy terrific sales!



Glad you had fun with it! Thanks for popping in!



Muchas gracias!



It does sound like fun, doesn't it? I think I would have enjoyed that when I was single...



Yup, baby does got back... :)



I like to start 'em young.



We must be on the same biorhythms. I need some laughs, too!



Okay, you put a serious smile on my face! Thank you. I often feel like the worst mommy in the world, so I appreciate the feedback.

And I give you an "A" for using the word "verklempt". Brilliant!

Angelique! So cute! I nearly died! He is such a sweetie and you look to adorable also! OK - you two are too sweet for words and you get my vote for best mommy! Kissing toads! I loved it!

That's so nice of you to say! I'm not going for an award, though. I say give the honors to those women brave enough to have a BROOD, not just an only child!

(I mean, he's a handful at times, but I cannot even imagine how gals with 5+ kids do it!)
