 The pick for this week:

By: S.C Stephens 
Synopsis: Being the bassist for the world's hottest band has earned Griffin Hancock some perks: a big house, a fast car, and most importantly his incredible wife, Anna. The one thing it hasn't brought him is the spotlight. Anna tells him to be patient, that his  talent will win out. But Griffin is through waiting for permission to shine. 

Without warning Griffin makes a shocking decision and takes the gamble of a lifetime. Suddenly he's caught up in a new level of lights, cameras, and chaos. One that pushes his relationship with Anna to its limits. Anna has always found his unpredictable behaviour sexym but lately's he's seen an ache in her eyes--and it has his soul in knots. Just as the recognition Griffin seeks is finally within reach, the thing that he loves most in life could be slipping through his fingers...
I absolutely adore the Thoughtless series! I was so excited that Thoughtless was coming out from Kellan's perspective. Now that I see this new book coming out, I cannot wait. Griffin was an extremely unique, and fun character. I'm curious to see what this story has in store for him. I cannot wait!

Feature and Follow Friday [4]

This weeks weekly question:
How would you pitch to the biz to make your favourite book into a movie?

I love questions like this but sometimes they're a little tough to answer. One of my favourite series of all-time that I have wanted to see turned into a movie was the Mediator series by Meg Cabot. These are my comfort, and go-to books, I don't even know how many times that I have read them. 

Meg Cabot is already well known as the author of the Princess Diaries, and that's something that I would mention to the produces that this book is by the same author but the stories could not be anymore different (I'm a terrible sales person). I would just end up giving an overview of the series and try to spice it up a bit, and just hope for the best.

How would YOU pitch your favourite book to the biz?

Once, Christabelle Jayne defied death.  Learning to live and love again is going to be so much harder.
After being abducted and vanishing without a trace, she was presumed dead.  But Christie isn’t the kind of girl that goes down without a fight.  When she crawls out of the forest almost two years later, bruised and bleeding, she is confronted by a world that seems to have moved on and left her behind.
Dean Hawking returned to Warfields after a terrible tragedy on the job shook his faith in humanity.  The cop’s transfer home wasn’t the cure-all he hoped for until the best thing about it, the girl he loved since high school, Christie Jayne, turns up alive.
Their worlds are thrust together again for the first time in years.  Though still reeling from her ordeal, in Dean she finds a fathomless love that reminds her there are still beautiful things in the world. In Christie, he sees his chance at redemption…
Then Dean uncovers some startling information about Christie’s case, revealing that she might be in imminent danger, and their second chance at love will be put to the test when the full story of her escape is revealed.  Can there be any coming back from what she’s had to do?

I'm in my thirties and living in New Zealand. About 2 years ago I lost somebody very close to me. I was lucky in a way, I was given enough time to make a promise. My promise was that I would never forget our young and innocent love, and it's a promise I intend to keep.

My writing is a way to help me keep that promise. I've always enjoyed writing but was forced into being 'prudent' and giving myself over to soul-crushing office work for the sake of a steady salary. Recent events forced me to re-evaluate my priorities and I decided to take a chance. I like to put little pieces of 'us' into my writing, from funny conversations we had, to apocalyptic arguments, to that special feeling you get when you hop into bed fully aware that your feet are freezing but your partner doesn't kick you away.

Even though these things are set in fictional worlds and attached to fictional characters, in a way it feels like I'm doing something that will make our love live forever. If somebody reads one of my stories and likes a joke or sheds a tear, then our love has lived on, and I thank any readers I might have for that.
