I invite you to come back, share the links for these teasers, tell your friends about it... It's all for a good cause! And if you tweet about it, you can use the hashtag #shadesofpink :)
Today, a glimpse from Pretty Little Rockstar by Bethan Cooper
Lola Pierce is a rock and roll addict.
Living her everyday through her music.
Jack Palmer is the lead guitarist in the band, Misguided Ghosts. He has the tattoos, the body and the money.
So what happens when Jack accidentally meets Lola? Do sparks ignite? Or is it a one way ticket to heartbreak hotel?
“That’s a pretty colour.” Lola pointed to the box of hair dye, a bright pink and her best friend Alexis screwed her nose up at her choice.
“I know you said you wanted to go bright, but pink? Lola, is your brain in there?” She knocked gently against her head and Lola backed off, a wide smile across her lips.
“I want pink hair.” Lola shrugged and picked up the box.
“How much is it?” Lexi asked through a sigh. Lola turned the box on its side and smiled.
“Ten quid, it’s in my price range don’t worry!” She laughed, and dragged Lexi’s arm toward the till.
“Wait, so we got beer, and yeah. Do we need anything else? Ahem, ‘Durex’,” Lexi coughed her fist raised to her mouth.
Lola swatted her arm playfully and pulled her to the side.
“Hey, Lexi, don’t talk about that in here. My dad only just let me go to this damn festival!” Lola giggled and picked up a pack of ten condoms. She scanned the back of the box, and Lexi leant her chin on Lola’s shoulder.
“Hmmm, for increased PLEASURE!” Lexi shouted, and Lola put her hand over her mouth.
“Will you shut up girl, I swear you want me killed!” She laughed, and hid the box of condoms under the other groceries.
“You’re not a virgin Lo, so why are you hiding them like you’re a giddy fourteen year old?” Lexi asked, her laughter consuming her.
“Because my brother works here you idiot!” Lola spat through clenched teeth. Lola started to bowl over with laughter.
“I can’t believe I hang around with a loser like you Lex! Come on.” Lola laughed and linked her arm with Lexi’s. “Plus, I have to have pink hair to go to a festival like Download.” She sighed, and shook her fringe away from her face.
Bethan Cooper spends her days working 8 hours at a well known restaurant and yawning - a lot.
But her vulnerability behind the uniform is her writing, having being obsessed with writing short stories and song lyrics from her teens, she has finally put pen to paper and started a novel.
She is married to the love of her life whom she met when she was 17.
So writing romance is a must, especially lots of kissing and hot guys. ;)
