Book Signing Awesomeness

Had a fab time last weekend with authors Shantal Hiatt, Wendy Knight, and Mercedes M. Yardley. We held a multi-author book signing at the Eccles Community Art Center on Saturday. I was a little nervous--book signing, meeting a bunch of new people (both authors and readers), freaking out that I probably have a chunk of broccoli in my front teeth while I smile big for everyone. You know, the usual.

I'm the dork on the far left. L-R, the gorgeous ladies are Mercedes, Shantal, and Wendy.

So I couldn't have been more wrong. There was no need to be nervous--these other writers are so much fun! We had a great time. Seriously--instafriends! And look at the cool mansion in the background where we held it. The place has SECRET STAIRCASES. It is

Here's my table!
I shared a table with Shantal Hiatt, author of Agency...because we are sisters. How cool is that? A book signing with my sister! Our parents showed up and Mom got all weepy with pride, because that's how moms roll.

Me and my big sis!
The four of us have grand plans for a book signing tour in the fall, hitting Southern Utah and Nevada. Gonna be a blast!

Off the Record, Question 1

Fake News at Its Finest

Life has a way of putting me in my place. I had grand intentions to post weekly, and three months later....

So I think it's great that people are talking about fake news these days, because fake news is at the heart of Off the Record. I have a sleezeball paparazzo named Derrick Fuchs (it looks like a swear word, but it's pronounced 'fooks,' a purposeful play on words to immediately show what a douche nozzle he is) in the novel. He writes his articles based on the latest gossip without really caring who he hurts or how much of it is made up. I haven't decided yet if the reader gets to meet him, but the excerpt today is the first article we see from him. Enjoy!

Off the Record, Question 1 Part 2

If you haven't noticed, the format for Off the Record isn't in regular chapters. Main character Devi Madrigal is looking back in an interview for Rocker Chic mag, something I made up because every sleezeball papparazzo antagonist needs a place to work, right? So instead of chapters, you'll see questions and articles about her. It's a fun format to write in.😍

When we last hung out with The Streakers, they were trying to figure out how to make the finale of a live reality show after their lead singer Raina Sky ditched them that morning. They heard Devi singing after her shift at the coffee shop and want to sneak her in to sing for them. Will Devi tell them they're crazy? Can they sneak her in to a studio with tight security? Will this girl with a guitar and a dream steal the chance she's been trying for three years to reach?
