Happy release day, CELEBRITY!

Celebrity Teaser

 

Dear Reader,

They say 7 is a magic number. Since this is my 7th novel, released on November 7th, and it took 7 months to write, I tend to agree. During this time I was engrossed in the journey of my heroine, in the glamorous Hollywood life, where the general motto is “live fast, die young”.
However, few people know this book was inspired by one of my previous novels, The Diary. To me it is such a powerful book I would love to see it turned into a movie one day, and Celebrity includes how I imagined The Diary would come to life on screen. If you enjoy this book, I hope you will also check out The Diary and find out what inspired me so much. To entice your curiosity further, I’ve included an excerpt from The Diary on the last pages of this book.

Enjoy!

Three days left before you pay the full price for CELEBRITY

Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s November, so my weekend started with cold weather and fog so thick I couldn’t see beyond the edge of my balcony railing. However, I hope you have better weather, especially those of you who live in places warmer than my moody yet lovely Romania.

Celebrity CoverThis week has been a productive one, a week of hard choices and major changes for me, which I’ll be announcing soon on the website. However, today is dedicated to my latest novel, CELEBRITY, which will be released on November 7th, when the price will become $2,99. Until then, you can still preorder it at 99 cents.

Since preorder books don’t have a preview, I’ve decided to post a little excerpt – the first peek into my first contemporary romance, which follows the journey of Kendra Kensington, a young writer who trades her simple existence in Chicago for the glamorous Hollywood life, full of luxury and scandal. In this excerpt, Kendra has just found out her agent landed her a million dollar contract for one of her scripts, and she’s going to surprise her boyfriend, Richard, with the amazing news. However, she’s the one who ends up being surprised, and not in a good way.

 

EXCERPT

When the elevator stopped, I smiled at my reflection in the mirror and stepped out. I took Richard’s key out of my purse and inserted it into the lock as silently as possible. I was sure he was still asleep, but I didn’t think he’d mind being awakened earlier.

As it turned out, I was wrong in both assumptions. The moment I entered the apartment I realized two things: Richard was not asleep, and he was not alone. Judging by the noises coming from the bedroom, he was either watching a porn flick, or he had company. I stood motionless, struck dumb and still by this discovery. I even stopped breathing, while my heartbeats accelerated madly.

Then I was jarred out of my shocked stillness by a particularly high-pitched moan. Feeling as though clouds of steam were coming out of my ears, I walked to the bedroom and pushed open the door. For a moment, I just stared stupidly at the way Richard and his blonde, huge-breasted partner were tangled. It crossed my mind that he’d never been this inventive and energetic with me. Then the adrenaline kicked in, and with it, a wave of fury that made my pulse and breathing go into overdrive.

“You motherfucking piece of shit!” I screamed, advancing into the room, clutching my purse like a weapon.

The rocking stopped abruptly. The blonde let out a girlie scream, but my attention was all on Richard. His eyes were as big as saucers, as he was trying to yank a sheet to cover himself.

“Kendra… It’s not what you think,” he stammered. “I-I can explain…”

“You whore-fucking, cock-sucking, pencil-dick son of a bitch! Is this why you never had enough energy for me?”

I grabbed the first handy thing—which happened to be an inoffensive stack of files—and threw them at the bed. Sheets of paper spread everywhere, but without doing any damage.

“Kendra, listen to me…”

“Shut up, you cheating louse! And you,” I turned to the blonde, who was uselessly trying to cover up her tits. “I hope he’s better with you than he ever was with me. I haven’t faked it so much in my life as I did with this lousy bastard!”

I whirled around and stormed out, slamming the door as hard as I could behind me.
