Thanks to the Naughty Author Chicks for hosting me today, and letting me chat about my latest release, Hollywood Confessions. I have one week left of my two week Hollywood Confessions Blog Tour, so please check out my website for more tour stops, as I’ll be giving away cool prizes (including gift cards, free books, cameo appearances, and Hollywood Headlines collectibles) at each stop!
Hollywood Confessions explores the sexy, scandalous, and sensational world of Hollywood through the eyes of tabloid reporter, Allie Quick. Allie has high aspirations - much higher than reporting on the latest celebrity gossip for the L.A. Informer, Hollywood's most notorious tabloid. But if she's going to join the ranks of the real reporters, she's going to need a headline worthy story under her belt. Luckily, she gets just that when the producer of the trashiest reality shows on TV winds up murdered, and Allie convinces her editor, Felix Dunn, that this story has her name written all over it. Between an aging dance-off judge, a family with sextuplets and triplets, and the star of a little person dating show, Allie has no shortage of reality stars to question. But when she finds herself falling for her prime suspect, Allie's relationship with her editor is suddenly on the rocks, and her life is in danger. This is one deadline Allie can't afford to miss!
While writing this book, I had a great time coming up with scandalous confessions for my suspects to spill to Allie. And pretty much every character had some sort of confession to blurt out when pressed – whether a confession of a scandalous affair, a calculated murder, or a sweet confession of love. In fact, I would venture the say that most people have a secret to confess. I know I do. So, in the spirit of confessions, here are a couple of mine that I am swearing you all to secrecy not to let out:
I don’t know how to type. Seriously. I am a writer who can’t type. Shameful, isn’t it? I’m one of the fastest hunt-n-peckers you’ll ever meet, but I always have to look and always make a ton of mistakes. A good proofreader is my life saver.
I absolutely love the movie The Three Amigos. I know it’s probably known as one of the cheesiest films of all time, but I can quote 90% of it by memory. And, much to the annoyance of my family, often do.
I can’t stand Dancing with the Stars. They’re probably going to revoke my Chick card for that, but I hate that show. Truly do not get it.
I failed 8th grade algebra. If my middle schooler ever finds out, I will never live it down. But, it’s true. I flunked out of the class. Numbers and I just don’t get along.
What about you? Any confessions that you’re willing to spill? For everyone brave enough, put your confession in the comments section and you’ll be entered to win a limited edition Hollywood Confessions shot glass! I’ll post the name of the lucky winner (chosen at random) in the comments at the end of the day.
