Unmasking Ella: Meet Ella

18 Mar

I’m so excited to reveal Ella Taylor, the main character and modern day Cinderella in my new novella Unmasking Ella. My co-author Krista Newport posted something on her blog about Ella earlier this month. Thankfully, Ella agreed to stop by my blog too so that we could find out a little bit more about the girl in in the mask!

Secret Cinderella

Q & A with Ella

What’s your favorite color?

Tiffany’s blue

Favorite person in the world?

I would be my BFF Fiona, for sure. She’s amazing and loyal.

If you were a super hero, what would your secret power be?

I’d have to say the ability to read minds. There are so many things I wish I could hear.

Who is your secret crush?

If I told you it wouldn’t be a secret now would it?

Unmasking Ella: Exclusive Excerpt!

18 Mar

Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I hope you’re all spending it drinking something delicious and eating Corned Beef and Cabbage! Because it’s the Month of Shamrocks, Krista and I thought we’d give you something extra special… an excerpt from our premiere novella Unmasking Ella. In case you haven’t heard yet, our debut novella is a modern retelling of one of our favorite fairy tales: Cinderella. Below is the excerpt:

“Bitch” scrawled messily across my arm was the first thing my eyes focused on. My head was pounding. My eyelids weighed a thousand pounds. I needed water right away. I struggled into a sitting position; my head was spinning and it was hard to keep upright. Wait. Bitch wasn’t the only thing written on me. My arms were covered in writing and words that were quick to bring tears to my eyes. Slut, whore, idiot, skank, were among the many.

Don’t forget to add it to Goodreads so you can be alerted when it’s released or just to read the whole synopsis!

There it is folks! The first paragraph. What do you think?

Unmasking Ella: Masked Moodboard of Sexy

4 Mar

When I was little, my aunt started a tradition. Celebrate St. Patty’s day in a big way. We’d wake up to green milk, green eggs, green shamrocks mysteriously painted on our arms, and more.

In fact, the celebration has a tradition of expanding even longer than just the 17th. Sometimes it goes for a week or more! So, in honor of my heritage (Irish), my favorite holiday St. Patty’s Day, and the announcement of my new novella Unmasking Ella (Secret Cinderella #1), my best friend and co-author Krista Newport and I will be celebrating The Month of Shamrocks!

I’ll be posting odes to hot Irish men, snippets from books I love, and of course, sneak peaks into Unmasking Ella (who also happens to contain a hot Irishman).

Today brings you a Masked Moodboard of Sexy, to give you a feel for the novel.

Book News: Unmasking Ella

1 Mar

I have BIG news, guys!

My talented best friend Krista Newport and I often talk about writing. We bounce ideas back and forth, talk about book boyfriends, and give book recommendations.  You know, the normal stuff BFFLs discuss. And one day we got to talking about something that I fell in love with right off the bat!

So we co-wrote it!

Behold, our New Adult, fairy tale project titled Unmaking Ella, #1 in the Secret Cinderella series!

UnmaskingElla

Ella Taylor has been longing for freedom since the fateful day her father died, leaving her with Coco, the step-bitch from the West, and Brooke, the wickedest of wicked stepsisters. There’s little time for a love life when Ella has to earn her keep while paying her way through college. That doesn’t stop her from swooning over Killian Ward, Mr. Gorgeous, Irish, and very off-limits. If only Brooke didn’t already have her cat claws sunk into him.

With Killian off limits, Ella is sure that all she can do is dream, until the opportunity of a lifetime arises. If she can’t have Killian in real life, maybe she can have him for three days of Midsummer, the annual Greek campus tradition. Three days of parties. Three days in masks. Will Ella find her secret Cinderella ending? Or in the real world, does the evil stepsister always win?
