Sexy Ryan Reynolds... and a Writer Giveaway!

A few things.

1) My fantasy boyfriend, Ryan Reynolds was voted sexiest man alive.

2) Um, DUH.

Let's all just pause for a moment of DROOL.

3) He had me at Van Wilder, and has never let me down since.

4) Seriously. I used to watch that move EVERY DAY. There was a time when I could quote the entire thing verbatim.
 I'd like you to meet Sherri and Terri. Two girls utterly infatuated with men who have larger than normal... medulla oblongatas. 
5) I loved love him so much, I was thisclose to writing him a letter and inviting him to my sorority formal my senior year of college.

6) What? He wasn't as famous then, and it would have been a cool publicity story. I stand by my theory that he COULD have said yes.

7) Except my ex decided he wanted to give it another shot right around then, and what can I say? I'm a sucker for people who I've dated for years. So I never wrote the letter. Sigh.

8) I do still wonder though... What might have been.

9) Ryan's been the only man who could ever tear me away from my first love: Jared Leto.
10) Although, yeah, Jared still makes my heart melt into a warm, buttery consistency.
11) But I digress. (Ryan... You're still my number one.)

12) Having absolutely nothing to do with In celebration of Ryan finally receiving the title he deserves, I'm having a giveaway for writers!

13) Also, even after three new bookshelves, I don't have enough space for all my books, and I'm downsizing the ones I have on the field and craft of writing. (I actually have two copies of some of these!)  So, I'm passing the following ones on.
2010 Writer's Market Deluxe Edition
2010 Guide to Literary Agents
2010 Jeff Herman's Guide to Book Publishes, Editors, & Literary Agents
The Everything Get Published Book
Write on Target
Guide to Fiction Writing
Writing Tools: 50 Essential Strategies for Every Writer
14) To enter, all you have to do is be a follower and leave a comment on this post with your email address!

15) Winner takes all! Yep, one commenter will win every one of these books :)

16) Contest ends at midnight on Friday, November 26th.

17) US only this time. Sorry to all my international friends! I promise, next one will be open to you too!

18) Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by! Sara


  1. How awesome is this. I am so there. He is pretty awesome in a cool guy kinda way (and that is not a kiss up). shainer72@gmail.com

  2. Cool contest! I'm more of a Leto fan than a Reynolds one, however. Both of them are great to look at, but Leto's just so multi-talented! :)

  3. No, I refuse to share Jared Leto with you, he is all mine, I tell you. LOL. Even though, I admit Ryan's hotness makes me look again at him.
    I would love the books. I am a gfc follower.

  4. Wonderful taste in fantasy boyfriends! Keep the dream alive! I would totally love to have a shot at those books...it might help me stay motivated enough to finish my novel.


  5. If I admit that I've never found Jared Leto particularly attractive, am I disqualified?? :) But I LOVE Ryan Reynolds. My god, that man is so hot. He'd cause a traffic jam if he took his shirt off on the side of the road. I even defended his hotness to my husband yesterday when we saw the magazine cover...

    *sigh dreamily*

  6. Oh thank you for this post. Nothing better than starting your week with some delicious eye candy!

  7. Gotta love the hotties! Count me in for the contest. ktlc1113[at]aol[dot]com

  8. I have been a Ryan fan for many years. Thanks for the great picks to start the day. Oh, and there's a book contest? I'm game for that too! Sorry, was drooling over pics . . .


  9. He is a cutie! Well both are but I'm more partial to Ryan! And my mom likes to say she was the ONE that watched him on 2 men and a pizza place :)

  10. Ryan Reynolds, Jared Leto and a fabulous giveaway! AWESOME post! :)

  11. I'm so happy to see Ryan is proud to rock the chest hair! Nice to see a man who is not afraid of his true lumberjack self.

    Oh and with Jared Leto I will always think of Requiem for a Dream. Such an amazing but disturbing film.

  12. Jared and Ryan! Please, I've even sat through The Proposal 9,326 times, because he's so freaking cute...the way he says: "you're a freak" slays me. SO cute.
    And Jared, Oh how I waited for the next episode of My So Called Life so I could watch his bad-boy-hotness. His eyes. Yeah. Even now, years later, and all emo-licious with 30STM, he still has it. ('cept that bad movie with LiLo/Firecrotch where he was all fat...ew.)

    Anyway, I loves the man-candy...nice way to start a Monday morning.
    No need to enter me in this contest...I have way too many books on craft as it is.

    Loves you. *huggles*

  13. Not drooling. Not even close. I wouldn't mind hanging out with them for all the fall-out girls though. Ryan growed up though, didn't he?

  14. I think I have found my new desktop image :) Quite a nice sight on this Monday morning! And a contest to boot!

  15. O-M-G!!! I really want that pile of books. Here I am, leaving a comment. Is it bad that I drool more for the books than for Ryan? Oh, I mean...um, almost as much. :-)

  16. I TOTALLY know what you mean about ryan!!! UBBER hot!!

  17. Okay, I'm wading thru the drool to type this. Wow, thanks for starting my Monday with those two gorgeous examples of masculinity. Oh to be Scarlet Johannsen (or however it's spelled). Yum!
    Oh & sign me up for the giveaway! that's awesomeness too. :)

  18. Mmm, count me in! :) There are some uber-helpful books there!

  19. Yum pictures!!! Haha, I saw the Green Lantern trailer and now I CANNOT WAIT FOR IT to come out!!!

  20. I think you need to do more posts on why Ryan Reynolds is so sexy delicious. Nom...Maybe after you post other things cause I totally zoned out...He is like...sexy amnesia...

  21. Nice post! LOL!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!


  22. Oh em gee, Ryan Reynolds most DEFINITELY deserves sexiest man alive. Goodness gracious. *giggledrools*

  23. Awesome books to pass along! I'm sure Ryan would be proud/turned on by your generosity ;D


  24. I love Ryan Reynolds! Espically in The Proposal, I would have married him in a heartbeat, well still would! :) Thanks for this giveaway!

  26. Amazing post!


  27. I totally had a crush on Jared Leto during the My So-Called Life years... Ryan Reynolds I didn't know quite as well. I will have to check him out.

    Fun stuff!

  29. I can't ignore a stack of books! Especially ones that help with writing ;)

    Thanks for the giveaway! (and those pictures...*ogles the eye candy*)


  30. Ryan is uber dreamy. I love him too...I hope that it is okay that I am in love with your fantasy boyfriend.

    I love all his movies. Too funny. I would have traded places with Sandra Bullock in a heartbeat to run into him getting out of the shower. Bring on the chasing, attacking little puppies. lol

    Throw me in the contest too. *wipes drool off keyboard to type*


    Thanks for the great eye candy!!

  31. Vancouver, Canada says, "You're welcome!" for Ryan Reynolds. He went to the same high school as some friends of people I know, but no one really thought it was a big deal. If I played 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon, I could probably have him over for tea by next Tuesday. (Don't hate me.) - G

  32. Funny - I have never heard of Ryan Reynolds

  33. Love this post! Jared Leto is very cute. Ryan Reynolds too :) but I haven't seen Requiem for a Dream yet. I'm a little scared to. It seems REALLY serious.


    Eek! Cool contest! Looking out for us writers! We should all get bandanas or something!

  34. i have also loved ryan right from van wilder on! and his contest is actually useful and fun! love it.


    some of these books are on my need to buy list! sweet!

  35. [Not entering. Cool contest, but I have a few of those already - just commenting: Thank you for the eye candy! *hummina hummina*]



Yay! I love when you have things to add :)
