Genres: Romance, Young Adult

A TV writer’s room intern must join forces with her crush to keep her boss from ruining a lesbian character in this diverse contemporary YA romance from the author of Queens of Geek.
Seventeen-year-old Bex is thrilled when she gets an internship on her favorite tv show, Silver Falls. Unfortunately, the internship isn’t quite what she expected… instead of sitting in a crowded writer’s room volleying ideas back and forth, Production Interns are stuck picking up the coffee.
Determined to prove her worth as a writer, Bex drafts her own script and shares it with the head writer―who promptly reworks it and passes it off as his own! Bex is understandably furious, yet…maybe this is just how the industry works? But when they rewrite her proudly lesbian character as straight, that’s the last straw! It’s time for Bex and her crush to fight back.
Jen Wilde’s newest novel is both a fun, diverse love story and a very relevant, modern take on the portrayal of LGBT characters in media

~ Guest Post With Jen ~

“Hello Jen, how did you come to write this particular genre, and what do you enjoy most about writing?”

Jen: They say you should write what you know, and there’s nothing I know more than TV, movies and pop culture. My whole life, I’ve been escaping into television and movie screens, letting them take me on adventures, see new worlds, and fall in love. I’ve been equally fascinated by everything that happens behind the scenes, the methods behind the magic and the drama that goes on when they cameras turn off.
Something else I love is, well, love. Experiencing a new crush or falling in love for the first time, is always so exciting. It’s such a hopeful, thrilling, pivotal time, but it can also be scary, anxiety-inducing and down-right painful. It feels like it could swallow you whole. As the old song goes, ‘love is a many-splendored thing,’ and writing about it is my favorite thing in the world.

What I enjoy most about writing is disappearing into the story while I write. There’s nothing like getting into the groove and realizing that hours have gone by. And it can be a great way to escape from the outside world, I love hanging out in the story with the characters and typing as fast as I can to keep up with where they are taking me. Bio:
