Think I Found My Solemate

I love wearing ridiculously high heels.  You know, the kind that make you cringe in anguish with each step taken after a short while of wear.  Regrettably, as I age, my threshold because shorter and shorter.

The pain is never a deterrent for me.  Nope, I suffer willingly. I ignore the toe-crushing sensations and the scorching agony that begins in the balls of my feet and shoots up my calves. I suck it up. At barely 5’3, I NEED the shoes. They give me a commanding presence.  LOL.

They’re also super sexy.  =)

Mmm…so delish, right???

Anyway, the holiday season inspired this brilliant idea. There are a lot of OCD homeowners out there (like yours truly) who don’t let shoes touch their carpets. So I get all dressed up for a holiday party, killer outfit complimented by equally outrageous stems, only to find a foyer full of discarded shoes…none as fabulous as my own.

Are you thinking of that episode of Sex and the City? Where someone walks off with Carrie’s treasured Louboutins???

Well, worry not!

My product is called Solemate, a thin textured plastic film that adheres to the bottom of your shoe. The texture makes it non-slip and the carpets in your host’s home are protected from the elements that grace the sole of your shoes.  You can be large and in charge throughout the party and when you’re ready to leave, simply peel off your Solemates.

Oh, and they will come in packs of three so you have plenty of backups to fill your busy holiday schedule. =)

Unlikely Venture

Here’s the thing about keeping secrets…they can only protect you for so long before threatening to destroy everything you hold dear.

Meet Jessica Latham:  a bright, sassy, workaholic with a penchant for plunging necklines and Christian Louboutin stilettos.  She has her dream job at the top management consulting firm in Manhattan, but it is coupled with the daily nightmare of an overbearing and demeaning boss who consistently undermines her abilities and challenges her at every turn.

And that’s the least of her problems.

Devastating news threatens her livelihood and sends her fiancé running for the hills without so much as a backward glance.  Newly single and fearful about her future, she focuses on work to escape the looming uncertainty…until a moment of weakness changes everything.  During a night tinged with one too many glasses of chardonnay, she meets Paul Emerson, a mysterious stranger who becomes an eager and willing participant in Jessica’s efforts to finally regain some control of her life.

It was supposed to be an isolated incident, something she subconsciously needed to restore her confidence and clear her head.  But what Jessica soon realizes is that taking control doesn’t always mean she is actually the one in control and things don’t always turn out as planned.

After being awarded a coveted opportunity at work, Jessica thought she was headed for a much-deserved promotion and some degree of stability.  But she didn’t anticipate meeting James Callahan, MIT-graduate-turned-start-up-CEO and she certainly didn’t expect for Paul to walk back into her life.  The internal struggle intensifies when threats to her future resurface.  Her worlds collide when everything Jessica thought was important is pitted against everything she wants for the future and she needs to quickly get her head and her heart in sync before somebody gets hurt.
