Jennifer Iacopelli is the author of the new New Adult novel Game. Set. Match. We are twitter buddies and she even is listed in the acknowledgements of Dear Cassie for helping me plot one VERY IMPORTANT scene at the end of the book. I am so excited to have her here today to talk about what life is like as a Debut Author.
I was SO lucky. My agent search was only a couple of months long. I signed with Michelle Wolfson in the middle of June, 2012 and my offer from my publisher, Coliloquy came very soon after that, but more on them later!
Just the sense of accomplishment. No matter what happens, I will be a published author for the rest of my life.
What are you working on now?
Right now I’m working on the next Outer Banks Tennis Academy book, which will hopefully release later this year and another New Adult book I’m calling my SuperSekritProject that I work on whenever I can find a spare minute.
Penny Harrison, a rising female star, is determined to win the French Open and beat her archrival, Zina Lutrova. But when her coach imports British bad boy Alex Russell as her new training partner, will Penny be able to keep her laser-like focus?
Tennis is all Jasmine Randazzo has ever known. The daughter of two Grand Slam champions, she’s hell-bent on extending her family’s legacy and writing her own happily-ever-after…until her chosen Prince Charming gives her the just-friends speech right before the biggest junior tournament of the year, the Outer Banks Classic.
With a powerful serve and killer forehand, newcomer Indiana Gaffney is turning heads. She’s thrilled by all of the attention, especially from Jack Harrison, Penny’s agent and hot older brother, except he keeps backing off every time things start heating up.
With so much at stake, dreams—and hearts—are bound to break. Welcome to OBX: Where LOVE is a four-letter word, on and off the court.
