ABOUT REMEMBER WHEN

Years before Trip Wiley could be seen on movie screens all over the world, he could be seen sitting in the desk behind me in my high school English class.

This was back in 1990, and I cite the year only to avoid dumbfounding you when references to big hair or stretch pants are mentioned. Although, come to think of it, I am from New Jersey, which may serve as explanation enough. We were teenagers then, way back in a time before anyone could even dream he’d turn into the Hollywood commodity that he is today.

In case you live under a rock and don’t know who Trip Wiley is, just know that these days, he’s the actor found at the top of every casting director’s wish list. He’s incredibly talented and insanely gorgeous, the combination of which has made him very rich, very famous and very desirable.

And not just to casting directors, either.

I can’t confirm any of the gossip from his early years out in Tinseltown, but based on what I knew of his life before he was famous, I can tell you that the idea of Girls-Throwing-Themselves-At-Trip is not a new concept.

I should know. I was one of them.

And my life hasn’t been the same since.

ABOUT REMEMBER WHEN 2

Back in high school, Trip Wiley’s fanbase only encompassed the denizens of the nothing little suburb of Norman, New Jersey. 

Ten years later, all that is about to change.

In the summer of 2000, Layla Warren is enjoying her career as a journalist in New York City (well, sort of), while Trip spends most of his time grabbing Hollywood by the balls. In the days before what will turn out to be his skyrocketing fame, they’ll find themselves confronted with some life-altering choices. 

Remember When 2 is the second story in an NA romance trilogy. It will bring you back to that exuberant and riotous time of life in your twenties when you struggled to figure out your place in the world and the person you were meant to be…

…and the person you were meant to be with.

To kick things off with the blog tour we have an interview with Tina – including her yearbook photo, Joanne’s playlist,  2 fantastic giveaways AND an exclusive excerpt from REMEMBER WHEN 3!!

JOANNE INTERVIEWS TINA

Fave 80s movie: Sixteen Candles is the first to come to mind, so I’ll go with that.
Fave 80s band: Bon Jovi
Fave 80s TV show: Cheers
Fave 80s fashion item: I was obsessed with my pink Reebok hightops. (Lisa sports them in RW1)
 
What inspired you to write Remember When? Did you go to school with someone who later became famous?: The original inspiration was a dream. It just stuck with me, and I jotted down some ideas about it. What started out as, “Hmm. Maybe I have a book, here,” turned into THREE books in order to tell the whole story. And, no. Sadly, there was no Trip in my school.
 
What’s next after RW3?: SLEEP! Oh, you meant book-wise. Well, I have a handful of completed or almost-completed manuscripts on my shelf awaiting rewrites. You’ll recognize a few characters in them (some very fringe people from the RW world). After that, I have a few extra ideas rambling around in my head.
 
Who would you cast as Trip, Layla, or Lisa?: I love thinking about it, but there hasn’t been anyone that I’d say is a perfect match. Besides, I like leaving readers to their own imagination. 🙂
Now for the BEST. YEARBOOK. PICTURE. EVER!! How AMAZING is that HAIR?!

EXCLUSIVE EXCERPT – Remember When 3 – Part 1 of Chapter 1

Do you ever have psychic premonitions? I’m not talking about foreseeing world events in your crystal ball or being able to read someone’s mind. But do you ever get that little tingle along your skin, that little whisper in a forgotten corner of your brain that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up?

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, I know it. So, I wasn’t quite as surprised as I should have been when the phone rang one otherwise uneventful afternoon. I was pretty sure I already knew who was calling.

I grabbed it off its base on the first ring, and I don’t even think I said hello before being met with, “My father died.”

To read part 2 of chapter 1 go to Miss Construed’s Reviews!

    I cannot wait for RW3!!!! RW and RW2 are two of my favorite books. The nostalgia took hold of my favorite memories and brought them to the surface, but the love story between Trip and Layla took hold of my heart and made it bleed!

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR RW3! November is taking WAY too long to get here! I haven’t been able re-read the last chapter of RW2 because, 1 it is too sad, 2 it feels too final without book 3 out yet, and I refuse to believe that is how it ends.
