So you may or may not know this but the completely AH-mazing Dahlia Adler’s debut novel BEHIND THE SCENES is finally out in the wild! I’m thrilled to be part of her release week shenanigans and it’s my goal to lovingly harass each and every one of you until you purchase it ($2.99 for Kindle!!) or bug your librarians to procure it like yesterday.
Here’s Dahlia’s Book:
High school senior Ally Duncan’s best friend may be *the* Vanessa Park – star of TV’s hottest new teen drama – but Ally’s not interested in following in her BFF’s Hollywood footsteps. In fact, the only thing Ally’s ever really wanted is to go to Columbia and study abroad in Paris. But when her father’s mounting medical bills threaten to stop her dream in its tracks, Ally nabs a position as Van’s on-set assistant to get the cash she needs. Spending the extra time with Van turns out to be fun, and getting to know her sexy co-star Liam is an added bonus. But when the actors’ publicist arranges for Van and Liam to “date” for the tabloids just after he and Ally share their first kiss, Ally will have to decide exactly what role she’s capable of playing in their world of make believe. If she can’t play by Hollywood’s rules, she may lose her best friend, her dream future, and her first shot at love.
Here’s How to Get It:
And if you’re still reading, we’re supposed to reveal some “behind the scenes” info from our lives. I considered sharing my favorite writing spot but who wants to see pics of my disheveled yet awesomely comfy bed? So I decided to feature images of a place where I spend a lot of time being creative: the Beach Museum of Art. My work often involves writing (yay!) and even though there’s no kissyface (boo!), art inspires every facet of my life. Funny enough, this work is often called “behind the scenes” or “back of house” because hardly anyone gets to see us do it but they get to enjoy the end result. If we’re doing our job correctly, it looks easy.
