Krysten Hager–Next Door to a Star

NEXT DOOR TO A STAR by Krysten Lindsay HagerKrysten Lindsay Hager

Genre: Young Adult Romance

Publisher: Limitless Publishing

Release Date: September 1, 2015







Hadley Daniels is tired of feeling invisible.

After Hadley’s best friend moves away and she gets on the bad side of some girls at school, she goes to spend the summer with her grandparents in the Lake Michigan resort town of Grand Haven. Her next door neighbor is none other than teen TV star Simone Hendrickson, who is everything Hadley longs to be—pretty, popular, and famous—and she’s thrilled when Simone treats her like a friend.

Being popular is a lot harder than it looks.

It’s fun and flattering when Simone includes her in her circle, though Hadley is puzzled about why her new friend refuses to discuss her former Hollywood life. Caught up with Simone, Hadley finds herself ignoring her quiet, steadfast friend, Charlotte.

To make things even more complicated, along comes Nick Jenkins…

He’s sweet, good-looking, and Hadley can be herself around him without all the fake drama. However, the mean girls have other ideas and they fill Nick’s head with lies about Hadley, sending him running back to his ex-girlfriend and leaving Hadley heartbroken.

So when her parents decide to relocate to Grand Haven, Hadley hopes things will change when school starts…only to be disappointed once again.



Love gone bad.

Is this really what it’s like to live…Next Door To A Star?

Chris Von Halle — The Fourth Generation

Chris Von Halle — The Fourth Generation

Today I have author, Chris Von Halle with me to tell us about his new book, THE FOURTH GENERATION. But before we talk to Chris, let’s find out a little bit about one of his characters, Marf.

Marf is the Fourth Gen-- Chris vhmain character’s best friend. He and the main character (Gorin) live in a faction (a suburban house) in a society that exists a hundred years after a birth-transmitted disease that kills everybody when they turn seventeen. I (the author) am sitting with Marf on the shoddy brown sofa in the living room. The room’s wallpaper is peeling away in places, revealing small squares of naked white wall. Marf is short, scrawny, has black hair that sticks up in shocks on his head, and talks in a high voice.

Author Iris Blobel– Journey to Her Dreams

Hi, everyone. I’m highlighting my friend, Iris’s book for you today. Enjoy!

“It’s not the money that makes you rich. It’s the knowledge

that the other person loves you and is always there for you, no

matter what. That makes you content and, therefore, rich.”

Journey to Her Dreams

by Iris Blobel

I’m excited to tell you all about the re-release of JOURNEY TO HER DREAMS,

which was in a way the start of my journey to my dreams.

Honestly, yes I was nervous going back re-visiting the story, nervous about the editing process for the new edition.  I can’t believe how much I’ve learnt and how much I’ve -hopefully- grown as a writer.

JOURNEY TO HER DREAMS has enjoyed another full edit and an awesome new cover.

I hope you’ll give Hollie and Sam’s story a chance.
