My brain never stops thinking up new manuscript ideas. I tend to base my books off of things that I’ve experienced or know about, ie., I was a merch girl and interned in the music industry which brought about the idea for Merch Girl, the novel.
My major in college was Public Relations and I ended up becoming a publicist after I graduated. I love my day job in publicity – it’s hard work, but it’s exciting and there’s never a dull moment. I once got to walk Miley Cyrus down the red carpet during a gala event…that was such a career highlight for me! We talked about our dogs and I introduced her to the media from People Magazine and Entertainment Tonight.
Anyway, this experience got me thinking… what would happen if a junior publicist was in charge of handling a Hollywood heart throb who was a notorious troublemaker/player/all around bad boy? Sounds like a great plot for a book, right?? 🙂 Well, that’s the premise of my New Adult work-in-progress. I don’t want to share any nitty gritty details yet, but it’s been a lot of fun writing this one. It’s much steamier than Merch Girl! The main characters are in their early 20’s so I feel like I can get away with being a little more graphic.
If you’d like to check out some photo inspiration for this novel, click the link to my Pinterest board here. You’ll see that I’m basing the lead guy off of someone who looks like Zac Efron or Louis Tomlinson….hot, right? 🙂 Can’t wait to share more with you guys in the future!!
