2017 March Man-ness Tournament of Hotties!

From The Desert Muses:

It is nearly March in America, when many a man’s fancy turns to… basketball.

<disappointed sigh>

For some of us, the approach of the NCAA Basketball Tournament (also known as March Madness) leaves a bit to be desired, especially if one’s alma mater is not represented amongst the 64 teams, or once your favorite team is eliminated (and let’s face it, most of us will be in that position eventually). Maybe you never quite saw the point in obsessing over brackets… until now!

<Drumroll> Here’s a little something different, be we sports widows, rabid fans, or just everyday appreciators of man candy: March Man-ness, Tournament of Hotties.

Throughout the month of March, the Desert Muses will post match-ups of romance genre hunks. You cast your vote in the comment section for which stud sends you swooning. The winning hero moves on in the tournament, and your comment/vote enters you in a raffle drawing for a $60 Amazon Gift Card at the end of the tournament (March 27). You can vote once per round, with 3 total entries possible per person.

The first battle of the hotties will post on the Desert Muses website on Monday, March 6. And to the winner goes the spoils!

New Year, New Look

Like a lot of people, I’m both afraid of, and excited for, 2017. The current political uncertainty engenders fear, uncertainty, and doubt. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that our country is poised to tear itself apart. We’ll have to wait to see what shakes out of the new administration, and that’s all I’m going to say about politics.

For a lot of people, 2016 turned out to be a rough year. I think we’re all glad to see the back end of it as it slinks out of sight. I’m hopeful 2017 will turn out to be better.

In keeping with that, I decided my website needed a new look. For reasons that don’t bear going into, I actually lost my old site completely as I transitioned from one hosting company to another. I’ll be revamping my new site over time, adding new content to go along with the new look.

I’m excited to see what 2017 brings!
