Tour Kick Off - New York Dolls by @NYDollsTheNovel

New Adult / Women's Fiction / Chick Lit
Date Published: November 17, 2014

It’s Fashion Week in New York, and Denton Hodges just got her first big assignment for Glitter magazine.
Denton’s assignment: Get in the show at the posh Regency Viscount Hotel, and find a story. But a chance encounter with hard-partying starlet Amber Donovan forever changes the course of the night—and Denton’s life. After a night of being chased by the paparazzi, swimming in swag bags, and falling heart over heels for Hollywood hunk Chris West, Denton’s not just on the story. She is the story.
Suddenly, Denton’s no longer merely a low-level assistant. Amber’s latching on like a BFF from hell, Chris is flirting and cooking her dinner, and as Denton falls for the real people behind the tabloid screen, neither knows about her ties to Glitter. Only Denton holds the secret—or so she thinks. Is Anna Creel, Glitter’s icy beauty editor, on to her? Will Denton be able to write a story exposing her new friends? And is Chris more than just a friend, or did Glitter get the headline right—“Chris and Amber: Hot Nights!”?
Step into the spotlight, and peek beyond the red carpet in New York Dolls.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?
Absolutely!  It doesn’t happen overnight, and the journey will be frustrating, confusing, scary, and depressing.  But it is possible.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?
Sticking with it.  I didn’t start out writing New York Dolls with an ending in mind.  It took a fair bit of writer’s block and good ‘ol procrastination for me to finish the story.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?
My husband’s encouragement helped a lot.  His feedback was invaluable.

#4 – What is next for your writing?
I’m working on a screenplay.  It’s about three girlfriends who take a spur-of-the-moment weekend trip to Cabo.  A little bit of humor, a lot of drama, and a mysterious hunk—total “Lifetime Movie of the Week”!

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?
Currently on the shelf: Yes Please by Amy Poehler (hilarious) and In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites (ridiculous but with some actually decent recipes).
