Today is release day for Laura Chapman’s new novel, Going for Two. It’s book two in the Queen of the League series, and in honour of its release, Laura was kind enough to share an exclusive fun fact. Not only is Laura an insanely prolific writer, she also has music talent, which makes me actually quite jealous.
Laura says: In honor of Going for Two’s release, I’m sharing some fun facts about the book and Queen of the League series.
Even though Harper isn’t a high school football coach herself, being in a relationship with one makes the game all the more important to her. Though football is basically football no matter what level you play or watch it at—with a few rule variances here or there—I didn’t want her to be a complete novice to high school football. So I made her someone who used to watch from the sidelines. Though I debated having her be a cheerleader or just an avid spectator, I decided to make her a former marching band member. You attend a lot of games as a band member, and it gives you an up-close view of the action. I know from my own experience playing percussion in the marching band of my own high school!
I hope you will check out the other facts—view a complete listing of locations and dates on my website, http://www.laurachapmanbooks.com—and the series.
Thank you, Isabelle, for featuring Going for Two—and me—today. Enjoy!
About the Book
Harper Duquaine is back for another season of fantasy football! This time she’s a year wiser and prepared to dominate the league. But while she finally seems to have her fantasy life in order, reality proves more challenging.
Her plans to peacefully play house with her boyfriend come to a halt when the high school suddenly names Brook its head football coach. The promotion comes with more responsibility on the field and less time at home. It also unexpectedly means more work for Harper, who already has her hands full helping a friend pull off the perfect proposal (while dodging questions about when she and Brook are going to get hitched already). Plus, a new development at work could leave her—and half of the fantasy league—jobless.
With the complications of her career and being “Mrs. Coach” adding up, Harper wonders if she’s committed to the life she’s already building or if there is something else out there.
