This is what I write

Life is about the chase."

I was a big Nemo fan. In fact, I admit to seeing it alone — sans child — in a theatre full of noisy kids.

Two weeks ago, I idolized Nemo.

Last week, after finding Nemo 22.5 times with a visiting two-year old, I detest Nemo — second only to Barney, who I never liked.

But like all traumatic experiences, something good came of this. As I squealed in surprise for the eleventh time when daddy fish, Marlin, and his ditzy friend, Dory, found the goggles belonging to the evil, dentist-kidnapper, my mind drifted …

And then my blood raced, for my brain had stumbled upon the perfect contest: “Finding Derek.”

And what, pray tell, is Finding Derek?

Derek Mitchell is the hero in my new book, The Sex Lounge, which will be released by Kensington in May 2007. Beginning next week, I will scour clubs, bars, airports, and financial district(s) for sexy hunks with Derek Mitchell potential. Then, provided that drinks are not thrown in my face and/or harassment charges are not filed, I will post snapshots of these hunks and a little bio. You, faithful readers, will then have the opportunity to vote for your favorite.

So check back on August 1st when I’ll post my first hunk … or a postcard from jail. Either way, it’s sure to be an entertaining post.

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed that police don’t enter the picture. ;) *ggg*

    So, are you just going to walk up and say “Excuse me, can I take your picture and can you give me your vital statistics for my erotica contest?” You’ve sure got a lot of guts -and I hope a guard dog too!!

    I love how your site and blogg match!
    This post had me laughing out loud.


  4. Rachelle Chase says:

    Me, too, Jordan. :-)

    Lynn … um … not quite that, but close. And for those tongue-tied moments, I’m thinking of sticking a flier with the details in front of him. LOL

    Cara, thank you for the compliment about the blog! It was very painful (i.e., 3+ hours) for me to hack my way to getting it to somewhat resemble my site.

    And I’m glad I made you laugh. Making people laugh is such an accomplishment.

    Thanks to you all for taking a moment to post …

    Rachelle, what a cool new hobby! And if you get arrested, maybe you’ll find some hunky cops who don’t mind posing for you. *g*

  6. Rachelle Chase says:

    Edie, I’m considering it a … “character building experience” — if I can use Lynn’s line on a guy, then I can ask anyone, anything. LOL

    And thanks for the positive spin on jail, too. :-)

    I’ll be waiting with baited…breath =)

  8. Rachelle Chase says:

    You and me both, Amie. I could be setting myself up for some major humiliation here. LOL

  9. Amie Stuart says:

    Think possitive and make sure the digital camera has fresh batteries *ggg*

  10. Rachelle Chase says:

    I am thinking positive and my camera batteries are fully charged. My first fieldtrip will be next weekend. Wish me luck … :-)

    Now there’s a fun idea!! Looking forward to hearing how this “project” unfolds!

  12. Amie Stuart says:

    Good luck!!


  13. Rachelle Chase says:

    So far it’s unfolding quite nicely, Calista. :-)

    Thanks for the positive wish, Amie!
