Band to Watch – Hollywood Ending


Hey guys! I have a new “Band to Watch” for ya! It’s….Hollywood Ending! I’ve been seeing their name pop up all over Twitter lately and had to check them out for myself. I loved what I heard! Check out their bio, video and web links below and let me know if you like them too!

Hollywood Ending is a pop-rock band formed in summer 2011. The band consists of Tyler Wilson, Cameron Byrd, and Dan Geraghty, all 18 years old. Hailing from all different parts of the east coast, these boys came together with a shared dream of becoming big in the music industry. They got their start on season 4 of Radio Disney’s Next Big Thing competition making it in 3rd place. They have appeared on plenty of tours since the formation of the band, opening for artists like Allstar Weekend, Austin Mahone, The Janoskians, R5 and even headlining their own tour playing many sold-out shows across the entire United States, Canada, and Europe.


Here’s a video of Hollywood Ending covering Mirrors by Justin Timberlake:

Bands to Watch – Late Nite Reading


Ok, so I’m going down my list of bands who follow me on Twitter, checking out band after band, passing over some so-so ones or bands that aren’t really my taste, but these cuties definitely make the cut! 

First of all, their name, Late Nite Reading, is amazing because obviously, I am a writer/aspiring author and love to read late at night! 🙂 Also, the first video that popped up on Youtube was a cover of One Direction’s “One Thing” and it totally reminded me of when I would buy those “Pop Goes Punk” CDs in college, with like Yellowcard covering Michelle Branch. Loved it! Then I listened to some original tunes and they were just as good, if not better than the cover songs.

I’m also digging their “Tour Stories” vids on Youtube…I think that my fictional band, Lansdowne, from my upcoming book Merch Girl, would do the same stuff during their tour down time! It says they are touring in Pembroke Pines, FL, which is near me….but I’ve never heard of that venue before so I’ll have to investigate that one some more.

If you like pop punk, please give these guys a listen! The One Direction cover is below, but check out their original music too, and follow them on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/latenitereading

Character Photos – Ryan


In my upcoming young adult novel, Merch Girls, the quiet drummer is named Ryan. He’s a secondary character, but very integral to the main story. When I browsed through photos, this one stood out to me as the guy I could see being Ryan.

Whatcha think? He seems shy, mysterious and angsty to me 🙂

Character Photos – Logan


Logan is the lead singer of the band in my Young Adult novel, Merch Girls. He is also the main love interest for my main character, Lacey. He’s almost 20-years-old, interned at a record label in New York City and is an all around hot as hell rockstar. And he’ll always be a Boston boy at heart with his love for the Red Sox. 

When I saw this photo I immediately thought of Logan:
