Elvis, Apple, and My Book

Elvis blog post

Apple released a cute commercial recently about a group FaceTime featuring Elvis impersonators that you can watch here.

I’ve always been fascinated with Elvis and Elvis impersonators which is why one of the main characters in my YA novel One Night is Johnny, Hawaii’s Favorite Elvis Impersonator. If the Apple commercial speaks to you in any way consider checking out my novel. Here’s a full description:

Breakups are the worst.

Thompson is miserable.

Can he get Caroline back?

With his mind on HER, his life takes an unexpected turn. Elvis gives him a job. He knows nothing about the world of celebrity impersonators, but he does know social media.

And so starts his adventure…where will it take him?

Will he find his true love?

If you liked John Green’s Paper Towns or The Way Way Back, you’ll love this contemporary YA novel. Go here to order.

Happy to say that One Try is out today!

For fans of Let It Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, ONE TRY is a charming Christmas novella set against a gorgeous Hawaiian backdrop.

When Thompson is home for winter break he finds out the Tiki House, the local hangout he loves to hate, is in financial trouble. Determined not to let one of his favorite places close, he and his friend Johnny concoct a plan to save it.

Thompson’s ex-girlfriend is home for Christmas, too…And she wants to help.

What happens when the two get together to try and save their favorite Honolulu dive?

Part romance, part comedy, ONE TRY is about going for it–in life, love, and everything you do. It appeals to fans of Hallmark Christmas movies and novels by Debbie Macomber.

Though ONE TRY is technically the third part of the Thompson Lake series it can be read as a standalone YA romance novella.

What I’m Into This Month

What I’m Into This Month

the-update-1

It’s that time again to talk about what I’m reading, writing, and watching this month.

What I’m reading:

  • The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. Unabridged, people! This is not my usual read, but my husband ADORES this book and can’t wait until I finish reading it. It is interesting and in general I’m familiar with the story, having seen an adaptation starring one of my favorite actors Jim Caviezel. But it’s much longer than an average book. I just hope I finish by the end of the year.

What I’m watching:

  • The Wolfpack, a documentary about a group of brothers who grew up sheltered in an apartment in New York who have a passion for movies. Completely fascinating and available on Netflix right now.
  • Newtown, another documentary (apparently they are my thing this month) about the town of Newtown, CT and how they’ve dealt with the aftermath of the Sandy Hook shooting. I make it a point to not get political on my web site, but this is really an eye-opener about how we need some reform to gun control laws. You will need tissues for this one.

What I’m writing:

  • A companion to One Night that follows Ronnie and Thompson into college. Tentatively titled The Only Thing. Thompson finds himself in another romantic predicament. More details coming soon.
  • I’m also editing my YA novel that’s set in Serbia. Why set a novel in Serbia you ask? My husband in Serbian and Serbia is a beautiful country that often gets a bad rap in the media.
