Featured eBook: The Green Ticket by Samantha March
Giveaway: TWO copies! Leave a comment and we’ll choose a winner after 3pm on December 23rd.
The scoop: College junior Alex Abrams scores her dream job at the ripe age of twenty – manager to a successful salon and spa. Thrilled to finally have a real adult job, Alex enthusiastically jumps into the world of schedules, conference calls, and getting a massage when interviewing prospective employees. What she doesn’t expect are the very grown-up issues that comes with a demanding boss. Kevin Dohlman quickly becomes Alex’s worse nightmare – covering up his affairs, dealing with his enormous ego, and trying to protect her female staff from him becomes a full-time job in its own right. Alex has also befriended Kevin’s wife and co-owner, Dani, and is trying to keep Kevin’s secrets hidden from her. The situation only worsens when Kevin starts paying Alex off to make sure she keeps her insider knowledge to herself.
While struggling to keep her wits and stay happy with her new grown-up job, Alex is juggling college courses, a new love interest, and keeping up with her close group of girlfriends. When her roommate and best friend Lila gets offered an opportunity to move to Los Angeles and sign with an agent, Alex realizes her life truly is changing, and everyone around her – including herself --is growing up. Knowing she is faced with some hard decisions ahead, Alex struggles with keeping her job at Blissful. But does she really want to throw away what she dreamed of as a career – or will the secret-keeping for Kevin become too much to handle? The Green Ticket is a story about morals versus money, and how one young woman navigates the shaky line between the two.
CHICK LIT IS NOT DEAD PRESENTS...7 HOLIDAY QUESTIONS FOR SAMANTHA MARCH
1. Who do you think will most want to receive THE GREEN TICKET as a gift this year?
Hmm, now I’m trying to decide if you mean my book or...money! Since the big Powerball was just drawn the other night, that seems to still be the only thing on everyone’s mind – including my own! Seriously – what would one do with 500 MILLION dollars?! Back to the question – for the book I’d say my mom, for the money – probably Lindsay Lohan. I hear she’s having trouble paying her taxes. Darn shame.
2. What books are you giving as gifts this year?
Quite a few! To name some : THE GREEN TICKET (obvs!) BREAKING THE RULES by Cat Lavoie (fab!) DOGS HAVE ANGELS TOO by Sarah Cavallaro (so sweet!) and DAUGHTERS-IN-LAW by Joanna Trollope (for my mom!).
3. What's the next book you'll curl up by the fire with?
PASS THE HOT STUFF by Dana Page
4. Scrooge or The Grinch?
5. Peppermint martini or hot cocoa?
Hot cocoa – with plenty of marshmallows!
6. Home Alone or Miracle on 34th Street?
7. What's the #1 thing you're looking forward to in 2013?
