Aubrey Evans is living every author’s dream; her sizzling romance novel is being turned into a blockbuster film. She would be celebrating this momentous event, if she wasn’t busy fighting over every tiny production detail with the maddeningly cavalier director, Kole Camden.

When news of their heated rivalry hits the gossip columns, drastic measures must be taken to save their sinking project. In an elaborate PR hoax, she is publicly linked to Greyson Meyers, the swoon-worthy star of her movie. A whirl-wind love affair is staged for the couple to mirror the steamy chapters of her own books.

Can the introverted author resist the charms of Hollywood’s sexiest leading man? Or will love find her in the City of Angels?

Guest Post: Contemporary vs Fantasy/Paranormal with Stacey Rourke

spacer

I am a fantasy/paranormal writer. That’s my comfort zone. Anything is possible there and the boundaries are as limitless as the imagination. It’s as comfortable to me as fuzzy socks in the winter. However life is about challenging ourselves in new ways and that is what I decided to do with Adapted for Film. I said I would never write romance. Well, kids, never say never because here we are!

So, how was it different? For starters, much as in real life, there are no magical fixes. No one can suddenly develop a new ability that will magically save the day at exactly the right moment—although that would be sweet if that actually happened in daily living. No spell can bring two characters together. No one can swoop in and save the day. To transition to this new genre I had to—gasp—get real. Emotional development had to lead my characters along their path. For a writer that enjoys making characters sprout wings and soar over the treetops, that was a tricky transition!

Another difficult difference to maneuver? Nothing blew up, no one died a horribly blood death that had to be avenged, and no one was a fabled “chosen one.” These characters were just like you and me, they were flawed, had their own hang-ups and interests, and were just trying to get by in this crazy world of ours. In some ways that bonded them to me more than I anticipated because they seemed like genuine people I could go grab a beer with. I could tell Mateo to his face to stop being an asshat, tell Aubrey to get out of her head for five minutes, and ask Tandy where she got that killer lipgloss.

I took on this project as a way to force myself from my comfort zone and that it did. I am insanely proud of the fun, lighthearted end product and I can’t wait to share it with my readers. Will I tackle this genre again, maybe for a sequel to the story? Well, my friends, that depends on all of you. You need more of the characters and I will resurrect them just for you! Happy reading!
