Rolling Stone did.
On the front cover of their damn magazine.
I still haven't lived it down. And now our record label wants to maximize the frenzy.
So, I have a brand new PR person–Kennedy McManus.
And she's making me insane.
I don't know whether to ignore her, yell at her, or push her up against the wall and kiss her smart mouth shut.

New Series Who's Who
Starting a new series of books is one of my favorite things to do, and also the hardest to do. A lot of times characters change as I write them. Like when we originally started putting Hammered together we’d had a retired wrestler in mind for our drummer, Hudson Wyatt. We knew the look we were going for, then while spelunking on Pinterest we found a race car driver, Jenson Button. He fit all the things we were looking for, and man…hello, hotness on the racecar driver thing. So…changing up that backstory was a no-brainer.
And seriously, go take a look around Pinterest. That guy is deeeeelicious!
Football star, Eric Decker, fell in love with Jessie James and their exploits were all over the tabloids. They even ended up doing a reality show on Bravo or one of those crazy channels. Huge football dude with a tiny dog and so in love with his wife that he was a smushball? Yes…yes, please! And so Hunter Jordan was born.
These are the wild and wacky things that come up while we’re creating characters. And I can guarantee that even just starting book two in this series will make a tidal wave of changes to what we’d already decided when plotting out the series. It’s just how we work, and we wouldn’t change it for the world. Below you’ll find a few details to what’s in store for this series.
