"And I'm Rose. We're the Triolas. Our restaurant--"
"Pardon Frank. He loves to interrupt."
"You just take too long, honey. Who, what, where, when, and why. But first I need to tell these folks who won the e-copy of WEIGHTED by Ciara Knight."
"Ooh, I'm excited. Who won?"
"Drum roll...the winner is L.G. Smith!"
"Yea! Congrats, L.G. Carol has probably contacted you already. If not, her email address is in her profile. Give her a shout."
"See, Rose? Just the facts. No rambling."
"So since you're all no rambling here and straight to the point, do I call you Speedy now? You never--"
"Rose, it's a family blog."
She kissed his cheek. "And you're a sweetheart. Go make sure things are running on time in the kitchen. I'll behave. Until later."
"Promise? The later part?" He wiggled his eyebrows.
"Go!" Rose watched the love of her life swagger through the swinging doors.
"Oh, gosh. I almost forgot. Carol's guest blogging today at Ninja Alex's blog, Alex J. Cavanaugh. She said to remind you that all commenters HERE through Thursday at 10pm CDT will be eligible for a free Kindle copy of IN NAME ONLY. Carol will announce the winner in Friday's post. Frank and I are in that book. You'll like it!
"Now I need to go get ready for the lunch rush. Between the marinara and the gelato, Frank and I will take turns responding to your comments. Ciao!"
