Let's start this with a special announcement from Pat Tucker about her successful books! 

 I want to announce that we have finally received the contract for Football Widows-the movie based on my novel by the same name. I'm so very excited, because in honor of this, the publisher has agreed to do a one-time promotion for readers who may not have read the book yet. The ebook price of Football Widows is being reduced to $3.99 for the week ofSept. 2nd -Sept. 9thWe need your help to spread that message to your followers. If you can help us by posting the link on your social media sites, tweeting, several times during the sale, as well as include it in your blog that would be great. We are asking people to share the news and will be running several contests during that time. I plan to do three Amazon gift cards, as well as a gift card from my favorite store, Victoria's Secret.

The game’s afoot once again in this sizzling sequel to Football Widows, with new members and new drama, courtesy of the women behind the NFL’s biggest stars, and play is getting dirty on and off the field...

Sasha Davenport is riding her popular Football Widows social club all the way to the top. She’s got the right look, the high-profile job, and a glamorous public image that belies all her previous salacious activities. The one thing that eludes her is the star player she needs to complete the cast of her made-for-reality TV life. Los Angeles Sea Lions NFL wife Tatayna Bacall has been faking enthusiasm for the game for too long. Now she wants her star quarterback husband to find a job as a sports analyst so their life can take on some kind of normalcy. Joining the Football Widows Club gives her hope that there is life outside the huddle. But when Tatayna realizes that her husband is a target, she’s ready to break the rules with some foul plays of her own…

The wonderful Pat Tucker took the time to chat with me about her book! 

1.       You shine a light on a side of professional sports the average fan doesn't see. Where did you get the inspiration for this series? 

My inspiration for the series comes from being the wife of a Head Football Coach for the past 12 years. Although he doesn't coach in the NFL, my husband's job is quite demanding. I've got enough inspiration to last several series.
