GR's Summary:

“Gossip Girl meets VC Andrews in this contemporary family saga. Love, lies, and betrayal become the new normal when Anna enters the world of Jack and Lucy Kyser.” 

–Magan Vernon, international bestselling author of The Only Exception

Three bad things I learned this year:

-People you trust lie, even parents.

-That hot guy, the one who’s totally into you, he might not be the one.

-Things are not always how they appear.

Three good things I learned this year:

-Best friends are always there for you, even when they’re far away.
-That other hot guy, the one who remembers your birthday, he just might be the one.
-Oh, and things are not always how they appear.

Anna Sanders expected an anonymous (and uneventful) senior year until she crossed paths with rich-and-sexy Jack Kyser and his twin sister Lucy.

Pulling Anna into their extravagant lifestyle on the Gulf Coast, Lucy pushed Anna outside her comfort zone, and Jack showed her feelings she’d never experienced... Until he mysteriously withdrew.

Anna turned to her internship at the city paper and to her old attraction for Julian, a handsome local artist and rising star, for distraction. But both led to her discovery of a decades-old secret closely guarded by the twins’ distant, single father. 

A secret that could permanently change all their lives.

Falling in Love Changes Everything…

“C’mon,” Julian said, helping me stand. “Let’s blow off this party and catch a movie or go to Scoops. This isn’t our scene.”

I shook my head. “I just really want to go home.” The tears were trying to start again. “Can I just go home now?”

“Sure,” he said, holding my cheek. I took a limping step, and he stopped. “Does it hurt to walk?” 

My leg was throbbing. I nodded, looking down, and before I realized what was happening, he was lifting me in his arms. 

“Julian, wait,” I held his shoulders. “I’m too heavy!” 

“It’s okay,” he said, walking on. I sighed and leaned my head against his shoulder. I didn’t feel like fighting. Gentle pressure against my temple, and he’d kissed me. “You’ll get over this,” I heard him say under his breath.

We would like to invite the talented Leigh T. Moore to our blog!  We are both honored, and excited for you to share your Top 10 Favorite Necessities for Writing.  Thanks for talking with us! 

Leigh’s Top 10 Favorite Necessities for Writing: 

10. My laptop (umm, yeah.  LOL!)

9. A great story idea for which I can clearly see the beginning, middle, and end. (I know, snooze alert! These are givens.)

8. My Hello Kitty bobble book-reader-girl.  (She reminds me that somewhere out there, beneath the pale moonlight… somebody wants a good book to read.  And that’s my job—to give them one.)

7. Pictures of my daughters.  (They remind me why I’m doing this, and I actually use them quite a bit for character inspiration.  For example, I used my oldest daughter’s beautiful hazel eyes as the inspiration for Anna’s in Dragonfly.) 

6. A notebook. (Lots of times when I’m writing one scene, I’ll remember something I need to add or enhance in another scene.  Have to jot that down, or I’ll forget it!)

5. My calendar.  (Seriously.  My brain forgets important stuff…)

4. Coffee. (A MUST)

3.  Google. (So many times I’ll be like, “Where is that place?” or “What is that thing called?” –like with the sailing in Dragonfly, I had to look up the actual names of the parts of a sailboat.  Calling it “the thing”… just No.)

2. Email. (Very often I need writer-friend support in assorted ways encouragement, venting, brainstorming, etc.  Those awesome peeps are only a click away.)

1. YOU!  My readers.  (Why else would I do this?)
