This is something most authors only dream about and I’ve been dreaming about it for years. Someone please pinch me because I don’t plan on waking up.
“Play” was special to me from conception. It’s the first time I used my husband for research. I live with the Wikipedia of football. From playing to coaching to gluing himself in front of the TV, the man has football on the brain. I am the true definition of a football widow which made him invaluable in writing Play.
We sat for countless hours in our hot tub discussing football… what if a player intentionally made a late tackle on the quarterback and another player retaliated? Would someone be thrown out of the game? Would there be an imposed monetary penalty? What would happen in this situation or that one. My DH was so helpful. I would love to say he didn’t laugh at me a time or two but that would be lying. He moaned (and not in the way you think) at a few of the situations I described.
So what changes when you make the USA Today Bestselling List? Actually, I have no idea. I do know I get to place a nice tag line on all my books:
USA TODAY Bestselling Author
I also get to dream bigger. New York Times here I come!
P.S. You will notice the new tag line on my blog header very soon too!
