So, Brodi asked me to fill in for her and write up a blog post. As you know, she is finishing up her second book (which totally is rockin', by the way) and she is short on time, so for a small nominal fee, I was brought in to blog for her. She gave me only 2 requirements - No nude pictures of myself and don't drive away followers (which very well may be the same thing). Thanks to all of you kind readers of her blog for the questions. I am ready to rock and roll with some answers:
Nicole K asks: I would like to know if Sam is going to blog about Bachelor Pad?
Who do you see as your greatest competition: Rafa or Jack?
As you can see from this blog post, Brodi is much funnier in real life. But if you give me a Rockstar drink or crack cocaine, I can be pretty crazy funny too. The best advice that I can give is to keep pushing the spouse. EVERYONE thinks that they can write, but that is really not true. It is difficult, time consuming, frustrating, etc. The business is tough. It is difficult to write a book...it is difficult to find an agent...it is difficult to sell a book. It aint easy. So, be there for your spouse and support him/her and give encouragement. And speaking as Brodi's spouse, she is a great writer so it has been really easy to be so supportive. She is fabulous and I am happy to be her biggest male cheerleader.
Leigh Ann asks: Okay, Mr. Ashton: What are your three favorite meals to cook, clean up after, and serve Brodi at the end of a long day of writing with a long night stretching ahead of her? Hmmm? Bonus points: What is the average length of the footrubs you give her while she types?
Small Town Shelly Brown asks: Sam, what do you do while Brodi is writing?
