Thank you so much for having me at AwesomeSauce Book Club. I’m so thrilled to be a featured author at Authors After Dark in Savannah and know we’re going to have a great time. All right, so I’m here to talk a little bit about my April release, Suddenly Beautiful, but instead of praising my heroine’s virtuous nature, I’m going to talk a little bit about her thirst for revenge.
In Suddenly Beautiful, my heroine is an efficient executive assistant, who works for the hero, a cosmetic mogul. Oh, and he happens to be the son of Aphrodite. As a matter of fact, there are a whole lot of demi-gods and goddesses working at Kythera Cosmetics. Only Nikki, my heroine, doesn’t know this. Neither does she know that she’s a demi-goddess (paternity to be revealed in the book).
For the last few months Nikki’s days at the office have been unpleasant due to Demetria Mirrors, Narcissus’s vain niece. The corporate attorney is like a shark in heels, always taking the opportunity to poke at Nikki’s self-esteem. When Nikki’s demi-goddess powers kick in, the things she desires start happening. Who is first on her radar? Demetria Mirrors.
Making my heroine go hog wild with her revenge really wasn’t an option. I wanted the readers to like her and nobody likes a ruthless b***h, so I had to come up with revenge tactics that us mere mortals wished we possessed. I don’t want to tell all the fun away Nikki retaliated, but let me just tempt you with yeast infections and unibrows.
I’m not a vindictive person, but I’ll admit there have been a few times I wished I had the powers to manifest my desires. Like making the police appear when the person who’s been riding my butt for the past five miles speeds by and then cuts me off. Or when the mean girl in my daughter’s class belittled her in front of everybody. How I wish I could have made her drool for a few minutes every time she tried to talk. And they wouldn’t necessarily be acts of revenge. How about speeding up the popcorn person at the concession counter at the movie? That would benefit everybody in line. Let’s call it a service to the entire movie going community.
If you could exact a little revenge girl style, what would you do?
Be sure to look for Suddenly Beautiful from Entangled Publishing on April 17. It’s a goddess good time!
