Pop Travel's Geri on being a Lazy Housewife

Thanks so much for letting me invade your blog today, Christine!

Christine requested a Lazy Housewife post - well, I'm putting a twist on it, of course. Today we are going to hear from Geri Harper, Cooper's love interest in POP TRAVEL. Before I let her take over, I'll tell you a little about her. Geri is an FBI agent. She's tough, sarcastic, and doesn't have a lot of patience. Her favorite relaxation is watching late night TV with a big juicy sandwich in a bubble bath. And now, here's Geri's stance on being a Lazy Housewife...

Can you see me as a lazy housewife?! I'd have a lazy house-husband before I'd wait on a man or give up my career to stay home and take care of kids and all that goes with that. Cooper will make a wonderful lazy house-husband, at least the lazy part. So here are my anti-lazy housewife tips:
  • Buy a personal android - If I had a messy family, I'd get one or two to do the cooking and cleaning and driving around. I don't have one for just me because I'm never home. It would collect more dust than it would actively dust.
  • Use a service - whether android or human, a weekly or monthly service is the next best thing to owning one, this is what I do and it's worth it. (if that makes me a lazy housewife, so be it.)
  • As for food, I have my order delivered weekly and it's mostly meal pellets. I love my rehydrator.
  • And my last bit of advice - don't have kids. I know some women can't resist the little cherubs, but as I was cursed by my dad, mine would be just like me. I can't risk it, so no kids in my future.

DISCLAIMER! The views expressed above by Geri Harper do not reflect the opinions of Tara Tyler or Christine Rains. We are happy Lazy Housewives with wonderful children we adore. It ain't always easy, but it's totally worth it!

Thanks again, Christine for letting me come over and helping me reveal my new POP TRAVEL cover - it's to die for! And the re-release has a sneak peek at the first chapter of SIMULATION which comes out Sept 14th!

In 2080, technology has gone too far for private detective J. L. Cooper. He thinks he can avoid pop travel teleportation, until he stumbles onto a video of a pop traveler who turns to dust.

Sparking a series of murders, attempts on his life, and threats to his brother, Cooper wants to pass off the evidence but knows he’s being watched and can’t trust anyone. And who would believe him?

With help from the neurotic genius “Creator” of pop travel and a beautiful Southern charmer, Cooper must expose the deadly glitch and shut it down or die trying. No problem.
