One thing Elle Rush and I have in common is that we both had books released by Liquid Silver Books this Monday. The similarities pile on after that (we're both learning Italian, for example), but I'll get into it all when Elle stops by for an interview in March. This post is all about the books.
If you're a frequenter of my blog, you already know I've written a Little Red Riding Hood retelling set in a post apocalyptic wasteland (which follows a Rapunzel retelling set in the same world). Catching Red charts the story of a smart-ass scout who almost gets eaten alive by zombies, is rescued by an Agent Woodsman, and ends up destroying an evil cult. For better or for worse, it's the first time I've written a book that exceeds 110 pages (which technically brings me into the shortest end of the "novel" spectrum). And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the extent of my promotional abilities.
While I drew inspiration for Catching Red from a French fable, Elle Rush's Screen Idol is inspired by Greek mythology. Sydney Richardson is about to wrap up a two-part fundraiser for burn victims like herself when Chris Peck, worshipped by millions as Zeus on the hit drama Olympus, shows up at her doorstep. Just when he's about to convince her they could have a chance together, he's offered the opportunity of a lifetime. The king of the gods has until sunset to prove to his new off-screen love interest that Hollywood magic and reality can co-exist.
Sydney Richardson should have trusted her instincts and locked the door when a Greek god appeared on her doorstep at sunrise. After months of work, she needs every second of the day to wrap up a two-part fundraiser for burn victims like herself and she can't afford to waste time with a TV hunk, no matter how good he looks in a toga.
Chris Peck, worshipped by millions as Zeus on the hit drama Olympus, desperately wants to prove to the producers of a soon-to-be-cast romantic comedy that he doesn’t need fight scenes or special effects to make the jump to the big screen. Acting as the slave-for-a-day in the show’s fan appreciation contest was supposed to cement his everyman credibility but the winner wants nothing to do with him.
Chris is captivated by the woman who refuses to fawn over his looks and fame, and he promises to put her fundraising efforts over the top if she’ll spend the day with him. However, just when he convinces Sydney they could have a chance together, the movie’s producers offer him an audition that would mean breaking his promise and leaving Sydney in the lurch. The king of the gods has until sunset to prove to his new off-screen love interest that Hollywood magic and reality can co-exist.
