Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!
Okay. So ever since Dante’s Girl was released a week or so ago, I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from readers– which I always love getting. I’ve gotten a lot of questions about Dante’s Girl and the Paradise Diaries… so I thought I would take a moment and answer some of them.
Question: How many books will be in the Paradise Diaries?
Answer: I don’t know yet. I’m sorry- but I’m not the kind of writer who outlines the entire series at the beginning. I have a fuzzy outline in my head, but it is definitely subject to change as the story evolves and other characters are introduced.
Question: Will Dante and Reece be in the next book?
Answer: We will hear from them, but this book will center around Mia and Quinn. HOWEVER, I think that I will do something a little different than I have seen done before. I think that after the first couple of books, I will circle around and do another one about Reece and Dante. Maybe. Possibly. I love Dante and Reece. So probably.
Question: Is Caberra a real place?
Answer: No. It’s not. I made it up entirely in my head. I wanted to create it exactly how I wanted it.
Question: I read that you envisioned Dante to look like Alex Pettyfer. Do you regret that now since it is being leaked that Alex Pettyfer is such a bad boy with an attitude?
Answer: Obviously, after receiving this question, I had to google whether or not Alex Pettyfer has an attitude. And apparently, there are conflicting opinions on that. There are some stories circulating that Channing Tatum and Pettyfer are at odds- but their reps deny that. I can’t personally comment on that because unfortunately I don’t personally know either one of them (and that’s VERY unfortunate! )- but it doesn’t matter. Dante doesn’t have an attitude– and Dante only looks like Alex Pettyfer (Strikingly, I might add). I hope Alex doesn’t have an attitude, because he’s just too downright sexy for that. But if he does or doesn’t, it doesn’t affect how Dante looks. But to answer the question, do I regret envisioning Dante as Alex Pettyfer? No.
Question: Who besides Mia and Quinn will the other books follow?
Answer: I don’t know yet. I’m thinking that book three might follow Elena, but I’m not sure yet.

So, there you have it! These are among the questions I have received this week. I hope I’ve answered them well enough. I also hope that everyone has a spectacular Friday the 13th– don’t walk under any ladders!!
