If you were on Twitter or Facebook last week, you may have already heard the news. If not, I am ecstatic to announce that I’ve signed a three book contract with Kensington’s Lyrical Press for my debut novel, REALITY STAR and two sequels! The first book will be available in March 2017, but you can add it to your Goodreads shelves now. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
Here’s the official announcement from Publisher’s Marketplace:
And here’s more information about the first book:
Life after college isn’t quite what Jen hoped: Her low-paying job is uninspiring, her apartment is tiny, and she’s suffocating under overdue emergency room bills. When she finds an ad seeking puzzle-loving, adventurous 21-25 year-olds for a new competition-based reality show with a cash prize, Jen grasps at a solution to her problems.
Any uncertainties about the wisdom of pinning her future to a TV show evaporate when Jen finds herself unemployed, single, and homeless. She moves into an all-glass, fishbowl-shaped house in Los Angeles with eleven strangers. Jen leaps into the competition, solving puzzles, exploring mazes, and having the time of her life. Things change when Jen finds herself embroiled in a love triangle, battling another woman for the attention of fellow contestant Justin. As the show progresses, she struggles to win viewer votes while trying to tell what’s real and what’s part of the show. It’s a tricky balancing act, and it’s hard to manage without lying, cheating, or backstabbing—three things that don’t seem to bother her competition. When Jen finds out she’s on the verge of elimination, she must decide whether to sacrifice her values, the money, or her chance at love.
I couldn’t be more excited to be joining Kensington and am ecstatic to be working with Wendy. Thank you to everyone who has shared this journey with me so far. I can’t wait for the next step.
