A New Year, A New Series

We're only a couple weeks into the new year, and I'm already falling behind.  Not only do I have all the things going in my authoring world, but my personal life is busy at the moment too.
In case you haven't seen this floating around, I have a new series coming out.  I loved writing the Portwood Brothers, but I'm not going to lie, I'm happy to be done with Bryce.  There's no way he's crossing over into this series.  YAY!
I know some people often wonder where I get my ideas, and what inspires my books.  I thought I'd talk a little bit about what inspired this book.
First off, this book took a total nose dive.  The plot ended up changing from what I'd originally thought it was going to be, but it didn't matter because the story had already started, and I was hooked.  Where I got the idea probably isn't much of a surprise.  I was in my car, and my kids wanted to listen to Hits 1 on the radio.  One Direction was playing, and their hit song at the time was “Steal My Girl.”  After hearing the song several times, something clicked.  I imagined this kid who was on an American Idol type TV show and what that experience did to his life.  From there, this book was born, and then the series.
I wrote the first quarter of this book right before I wrote Playing for the Win.  I gave myself a month to let go and try and see what I could come up with.  In that month I learned so much about the town I created, the characters you'll meet, and I knew that when I came back to it, I'd enjoy writing the rest of the book.
This book has it all:  scandal, drama, and a second chance at love.  Stay tuned for the reveal of my new release and a whole new series.
