What My Husband is Going to Be for Halloween by Diana Holquist

When you write a book called Sexiest Man Alive, your husband gets A LOT of grief.

Yes, all his friends now call him Sexiest Man Alive. As in, "Hey, Pete, think the Sexiest Man Alive could give little help here moving this bookcase?"

I, of course, have been asked hundreds of times where I got the inspiration for the book. I say, "My husband," and people laugh at what they think is a joke.

But here's the thing: I really mean it. My husband is the sweetest, nicest, most amazing man. We've been married for 14 years and have two awesome kids. We've been through sickness and joblessness and moving and KIDS. He works harder and plays harder than anyone I know.

And he's smart. Scary professor kind of smart.

If you don't believe how great he is, get this. For Halloween, we're having a Halloween/book release party. And guess what he's wearing for the party? Here's a hint:

Don't drop that towel, hon!

Now, is that the Sexiest Man Alive or what?

Come by my website to vote for who you think should be People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive 2007. As of today, Gerard Butler is WAY ahead!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

That is very funny... I see why you are afraid of the towel dropping!

Lois said...

Although the guy on the cover really should drop the towel already. . . ;)

Diana Holquist said...

Yeah...well...have you seen the video?

He drops the towel in that.

As for my husband...Well, we did just tap the keg. I'll let you know what happens!

LOL! That was good! I needed a laugh. That is a sexy cover!

Post party report: the towel stayed firmly in place, despite the best efforts of some vigorous 10-year-olds.

Keg, gone. House a mess. I can say now that I've had my first-ever book party, dressed, of course, as Amy the psychic gypsy main character in my third book and a bit player in Sexiest Man Alive.

Two friends came dressed as characters in my books. I was so touched.

Gah. Must have coffee.

You should take a picture of your husband on Halloween for all to see.

Diana Holquist said...

Ooh...good idea Maureen. My brother had a camera. I'll see if he got a shot. Needless to say, the paparazzi were all over my poor husband, so it was hard to get near him.

If my bro did get a shot, I'll come back here to post where you can see it.
