Exciting times here at Casa Ashmore! 🙂 I stayed up until 8am, completely forgoing sleep last night to finish Young Hollywood Book 3!
You may recall that I decided to re-write of the last half of Book 3 after I just wasn’t happy with it. I’m a pretty ruthless perfectionist when it comes to (my) writing – so I just couldn’t let it go out like that.
No LAZY writing! When I read my old draft, I was like…where did Oliver and Scarlett go? Come back to me! Haha.
I am in LOVE with the new draft – OMG. It’s amazing. I’m sure you’re laughing because, of course, I would say that as the author. But, no! I generally think most writing is abysmal (seriously) – I am my own worst critic.
(Sidenote: My hope is that every single book I write is better than the last. I don’t ever want to trend downward – ugh! You know what I mean?!)
Still – the fact that I stayed up all night finishing Book 3 means that I might not have the clearest judgement. Haha. I’ll re-read it in a bit when I’ve slept!
Okay – so in other news, I just re-wrote the blurb/synopsis for Young Hollywood 1: Deep Focus.
Because I cringed every single time I read the old synopsis. This new blurb is hopefully better – but again, I’m writing it on a severe sleep deficit, so I may come back tomorrow and change it again.
Can’t Madisyn make up her mind?! You might be asking yourself. 🙂 Okay…moving on.
Here is the new blurb. It probably needs some tweaks, but I’m liking it for now:
Oliver Tate roared into my life like wildfire. He was a blaze that consumed my soul and burned me to my very core, leaving only dusty embers in his wake.
He was handsome and powerful, brilliant and masterful. He intoxicated me and thrilled me with his presence. He was Hollywood Royalty, and gave me entrance to a world I’d only imagined in my dreams. But, all that glittered about his world came with a price.
As seductive as he was, Oliver was haunted by his past and consumed by his craving for power.
He led me down a dangerous, emotional path, where love was the ultimate reward. If only I could cast aside my inhibitions and trust him completely… .
This is Book 1 in the Young Hollywood Series.
Book 2 (Young Hollywood 2: Sleeper Hit) is available now, and Book 3 will be out in a few weeks!
Young Hollywood: Deep Focus is a steamy contemporary New Adult romance series featuring a new college graduate heroine and a late-20s Billionaire Alpha Male. This book is a full-length novel.
What do you think?! I should probably cut out the last part – but I’m thinking I might have to keep it for keywords (ugh!) We’ll see. I’ll probably get a hair across my butt tomorrow and change it again. 🙂
I’m going to go look at Book 4 now, since it’s probably going to need some help after the sh*t I pulled changing Book 3. Oh, butterfly effect….
