A little bit about the title. The inspiration for it and for the book comes from something that happened while I was in high school. I went to an all-girls, Catholic high school, and when it came time for the prom, some of my classmates still needed dates. When our social studies teacher heard us discussing who we could get to take them (brothers, male cousins and friends were targeted species), Sister suggested they say the St. Anne prayer. We had never heard of it, but it goes like this:
Well, we said this every day before class and every girl who wanted a date for the prom got one. This must be one powerful prayer. Recently, one of the readers I found on Twitter who volunteered to preview this book for me before I released it emailed me to tell me that she started to say the St. Anne prayer and has since found herself in a very happy relationship.
In that vein, I would like to know if you have ever used any "secret weapon"--your world famous cookie recipe, that seductive perfume, padded bra?--to snag a significant other?
