Sneak Peak Saturday: Part 5!
Welcome back to Sneak Peak Saturday! For those of you who are new here, we are ONE MONTH from the release of my debut queer romance, Duet Rubato. To celebrate, every Saturday, I'll post a behind the scenes tidbit: a piece of artwork, some trivia, a favorite quote, something about the process for writing this book, and everything in between! Last week, I introduced GINA and told you guys about the woman who inspired her.
A Bit About My Character Art: A few months ago, I decided I wanted character art commissioned for this book, much like Kim Chance did for her book, Keeper. For this set of drawings, I actually hired two artists. Ricky, from Fiverr, who also did my logo, and Starr, from Twitter, who made a special, limited edition piece of heart which will go on swag given out to my street team. Click the link to join!
And now, without further ado, I'd like you all to meet: LOGAN, MADDY, and SAM!
MADDY, LOGAN AND SAM (The Crew of Bright Light) Logan, Maddy, and Sam are in the best of friends. When it Addie entered their little circle, they became the four musketeers.
MADDY is a homebody. The only one between the four of them who never sees herself leaving her hometown, instead aspiring to help others the way her own dance teacher helped her, she’s just a few more paychecks away from achieving her lifelong dream of opening her own studio.
LOGAN has always had an ear for music, but prefers to stay behind the soundboard rather than in the orchestra pit. Sound design is his bread-and-butter, though he doesn’t see himself staying at Bright Light forever. Eventually, he dreams of moving to Los Angeles to become a music producer.
SAM is the rebel. She’s always had a sharp eye for design and never ceased to march to the beat of her own drum. One day, she hopes to see her designs on the runways of Paris Fashion Week, but for now, she’ll have to settle for saving the theater and keeping her best friends out of trouble.
Bonus Trivia: Inspiration for Bright Light (the theatre)
In my head, I’ve always pictured bright light as a full-fledged version of my high school auditorium, if my own Gina Helmsworth was leading it, and my theater friends from summer camo had come together to create something awesome!
Question of the Week: What’s your favorite creative hobby?
