When I met Cameron we hit it off like macaroni and cheese. Now we’re practically inseparable but I’ve been hiding the fact that I’m in love with him. Truly, madly, deeply. He finally figured it out and everything changed between us forever. That’s not my biggest problem though. You see, Cameron just landed the role of a lifetime and, despite how he feels about me, I’m worried I’m about to play second fiddle to the bright lights and temptations of Hollywood.
I think I’ve loved Sarah since the first moment I laid eyes on her. It goes without saying she’s funny, smart, and has curves for days, but it’s more than that. She’s my light in this cynical, messed up world called Hollywood. I’d do anything to be with her, but I keep screwing up what should be easy. Now the studio is pressuring me to date my new co-star to drum up interest in the movie and all I can think is maybe Sarah and I weren’t meant to be.
Lucky Star is a story about friendship, love, and surviving Hollywood with your heart intact. If you love reading about a sassy, fierce, independent heroine and a hero who isn’t afraid to wear his heart on their sleeve, this book is for you.
** Author’s Note: This book is an expansion of the Her Confessional novella series. This full length, standalone novel includes previously unreleased chapters and has been broadened to include Cameron’s point of view.

5 Quick Tips to Write Better Sentences
When I first started writing I didn’t have an academic background in English, and I was not what one would consider well read. I did what anyone in my position who wants to be a writer would do. I started writing. What came out looked good to me at the time, but it lacked a lot of fundamental components.
I joined a writing workshop in Phoenix, where I communed with other writers (some with editor credentials) weekly to read my writing and get constructive feedback. Since then, I’ve become exponentially more skilled at sentence construction. I only wish that as a beginning writer someone would have pulled me aside and given me a crash course on some of the most basic concepts that we as writers encounter in almost every sentence we write.
This post will point out 5 rudimentary challenges in a simple way that I hope can benefit any new writer who comes upon it. Now, most editors or grammar masters could write dissertations on the top…
