Old Diary Cover

This is the cover as it stands now.

About Diary of a Love: Trina never dreamed that work would threaten the deep relationship she had with her fiancé Derek, the talented leader of Throwback, an up and coming Jazz group just ready to release their first CD. Their love connection has become more about hurried sex than the deep bond they shared from the start. In order to heat up their faltering relationship, Trina tries some drastic measures. Will she get through to Derek? Or will their love become another entry into the diary of her life?

Today must be...


I have some news in the works concerning Diary of a Love. We are in the process of re-working the cover so those who may not have liked the first one, I hope you like the new one.


I'm going to prommise to try to do better and update my blog more regularly. But with life, my day job and finding writing time it's hard sometimes to keep up.

The good thing is that the long hours 10, 12 and 14 hour days are gone until October.

And it's SPRING. So enjoy the weather, bask in the sunshine and have fun.

Ugly Feet E-mail/Summer Open Toe Shoe Pledge

Something fun and true.

Ugly Feet E-mail/Summer Open Toe Shoe Pledge

I got this in an email and I thought I had to share. I do not know who the original author was, put thanks to that person for laying it down.

Alright it's that time of year "once" again!!! And based on this email that someone passed along to me I think we need to be reminded of a few things. So my sisters, PLEASE, raise your big toes and repeat after me below....

The Open Toed Shoe Pledge
As a member of the Cute Girl Sisterhood, I pledge to follow the Rules
when wear sandals and other open-toe shoes:

I promise to always wear sandals that fit. My toes will not hang over
and touch the ground, nor will my heels spill over the backs. And the sides
and tops of my feet will not pudge out between the straps.

I will go polish-free or vow to keep the polish fresh, intact and chip-free.
I will not cheat and just touch up my big toe.

I will sand down any mounds of skin before they turn hard and yellow.

I will shave the hairs off my big toe.

I won't wear pantyhose even if my misinformed girlfriend, coworker,
mother or sister tells me the toe seam really will stay under my toes if I tuck it there.

If a strap breaks, I won't duct-tape, pin, glue or tuck it back into
place hoping it will stay put. I will get my shoe fixed or toss it.

I will not live in corn denial; rather I will lean on my good friend Dr.
Scholl's if my feet need him.

I will resist the urge to buy jelly shoes at Payless for the low, low
price of $4.99 even if my feet are small enough to fit into the kids' sizes. This
is out of concern for my safety, and the safety of others. No one can walk
properly when standing in a pool of sweat and I would hate to take someone down
with me as I fall and break my ankle.

I will take my toe ring off toward the end of the day if my toes swell
and begin to look like Vienna sausages.

I will be brutally honest with my girlfriend/sister/coworker when she
asks me if her feet are too ugly to wear sandals. Someone has to tell her that
her toes are as long as my fingers and no sandal makes creepy feet look

I will promise if I wear flip flops that I will ensure that they actually flip
and flop, making the correct noise while walking and I will swear NOT
to slide or drag my feet while wearing them.

I will promise to go my local nail salon at least once per season and
have a real pedicure (they are about $20 and worth EVERY penny).

I will promise to throw away any white/off-white sandals that show signs
of wear... nothing is tackier than dirty white sandals.

Don't keep this to yourself - pass it on to other sisters.
