Spotted Today

If tattoos are your thing, good for you. I'm the kind of girl who thinks the human body is beautiful and doesn't need any help (even mine! Wait...errr...), and they're pretty overdone these days (in my opinion, anyway). So when I see someone with many visible tattoos, I generally roll my eyes and look away.

Not today.

As I was out doing boring yet essential business, I spotted a guy almost completely covered with ink. I happened to be right behind him and had some time to kill, so I started reading his neck. It was almost completely covered with names. First I'm thinking (hoping) these names are children, but he's too young to have that many children (I HOPE!), and these names are all female. So I'm thinking conquests but *hoping* relationships. Either way...dude's been busy!

Then I got to the top of his list, just under his ear. In fancy font, it said, "Your Name Here." It took all my will power not to burst out laughing. I don't like tats in general, but I loved his. Hilarious. Thanks for the laugh today, random ink man!

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?
