Elvis, Apple, and My Book

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 Reading, Writing, and Watching This Month

What I’m Reading, Writing, and Watching This Month

the-update-1

I haven’t done one of these updates in a loooong time. But here we go 🙂

What I’m Reading:

  • The Land of Forgotten Girls by Erin Entrada Kelly. Just finished this MG novel the other day and WOW. I am impressed. Granted, I have a Filipino parent like the author does so I relate on a special level but still. Solid writing and an engaging plot about two Filipina sisters and their evil stepmother.
  • You’ll Miss Me When I’m Gone by Rachel Lynn Solomon. Not sure what it is with me and novels about Huntington’s disease (for another great one check out Rules for 50/50 Chances by Kate McGovern), but this book is excellent. Two sisters are about to find out if they have the disease or not. And one of them is kinda evil, the kind of character you love to hate. All in all a great read.

What I’m Writing:

What I’m Watching:

  • The Greatest Showman. My god if you love musicals you need to check this out. The score is great. The cast is great. My sister and I bought the soundtrack right after seeing the movie. Plus Hugh Jackman. What’s not to like?
  • The Resident, Fox’s new medical show. Since ER went off the air (yes, I’m aging myself LOL) I have been dying for a great medical show to take its place. I hope The Resident lasts because I think it has a shot at taking the title. From hospital romance to the greed of insurance corporations this show has it all.
