Guest Post with Author Jennifer Shirk and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome back author Jennifer Shirk to RFTC. Jennifer is celebrating the recent release of A Little Bit Cupid and has stopped by to chat. Please give Jennifer a warm welcome.

Jennifer Shirk has a bachelor degree in pharmacy--which has in NO WAY at all helped her with her writing career. But she likes to point it out, since it shows romantic-at-hearts come in all shapes, sizes, and mind-numbing educations.

She writes sweet (and sometimes even funny) romances for Samhain Publishing, Avalon Books/Montlake Romance and now Entangled Publishing. She won third place in the RWA 2006 NYC's Kathryn Hayes Love and Laughter Contest with her first book, The Role of a Lifetime.

Lately she's been on a serious exercise kick. But don't hold that against her.

Places to find Jennifer:

Hi, all! Jennifer here.

I don't know about you, but I LOVE to laugh. In fact, it doesn't take much. As a result, my hubby often tells me I'm his best audience. :)

Right now, I have a romantic comedy novella out called A Little Bit Cupid, which I happen to think is very fun and funny.

But not everybody has the same sense of humor. So I thought I'd post my TOP TEN FAVORITE FUNNY QUOTES that are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face.

Check them out below!


1…. "I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize" Steven Wright

2...."I went into a McDonald's yesterday and said, "I'd like some fries." The girl at the counter said, 'Would you like some fries with that?'" Jay Leno

3...."I was a bank teller. That was a great job. I was bringing home $450,000 a week." Joel Lindley

4...."I went to the 30th reunion of my preschool. I didn’t want to go, because I’ve put on like a hundred pounds." Wendy Liebman

5...."Everyone should have kids. They are the greatest joy in the world. But they are also terrorists. You’ll realize this as soon as they are born, and they start using sleep deprivation to break you." Ray Romano

6...."Having a male gynecologist is like going to an auto mechanic who doesn’t own a car." Carrie Snow

7...."There is one thing I would break up over and that is if she caught me with another woman. I wouldn't stand for that." Steve Martin.

8...."We had gay burglars the other night. They broke in and rearranged the furniture." Robin Williams.

9... "I told my psychiatrist that everyone hates me. He said I was being ridiculous - everyone hasn't met me yet." Rodney Dangerfield.

10...."I wanted to make it really special on Valentine’s day, so I tied my boyfriend up. And for three solid hours I watched whatever I wanted on TV." Tracy Smith

HA! I still chuckle at those!

And if you're looking for another chuckle, I hope you all get to check out my romantic comedy A Little Bit Cupid. Only 99 cents. :-)

Thanks so much for having me today!

And remember:

If you don't start out the day with a smile, it's not too late to start practicing for tomorrow.

Finding love should be easy, but wedding photographer Pheobe Ward knows better. When Cupid shows up on a crazy mission to help her—and save the world in the process—Phoebe realizes love might be even more complicated than she thought. Even with Cupid showing her Mr. Right, she can’t stop thinking about his best friend, Mr. Wrong.

Cal Crawford has never had time for love, but now he’s falling for Phoebe. Which means it’s got to be just plain wrong to set her up with his best friend, right? But even though seeing Phoebe with someone else will break his heart, he can’t walk away from her.
Phoebe can’t afford to choose the wrong guy with the fate of the world at stake. But maybe Cupid has it wrong. Maybe she has to rely just a little bit on Cupid, and a whole lot more on her heart.

    I've always liked "“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde

  4. My Mom always used to say: “Never judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.” She was a very fair woman.

    "A little bit Cupid” sounds adorable and a must read.

  5. I have several favorite quotes. Here's one:
    "One must always be careful of books," said Tessa, "and what is inside them, for words have the power to change us." - Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Angel

  6. I quite like this quote from George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones:
    “Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”

  7. “Well-behaved women rarely make history” - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

    The book sounds fun, Jennifer.

  8. My mother says this when she comes across someone that is being rude or stuck up (she got it from her mother): speak ass, face won't. I always snicker when I hear Mama saying this.

  9. Not really... I like a lot of the things Lorelei Gilmore says in "Gilmore Girls."

    Thanks for the giveaway!
