Take a look BEHIND THE SCENES

This week, we're joining in a blog hop to celebrate Dahlia Adler's debut YA, BEHIND THE SCENES! Not only is Dahlia super nice and awesome, but she was also one of our Spring Writing Bootcamp participants/rock stars ... so obviously we wanted to help spread the word about her book! 

First, a little about Dahlia:

I'm an Assistant Editor of mathematics by day, a Copy Editor by night, and a YA author and blogger at every spare moment in between. I've also been a Production Intern and Editorial Assistant at Simon & Schuster, a Publicity Intern at HarperCollins, and a Fashion Intern at Maxim. So, I'm kind of into that whole publishing thing.

My debut novel, BEHIND THE SCENES, releases from Spencer Hill Contemporary on June 24, 2014, but you can pre-order it from AmazonB&N, or The Book Depositorynow, if you're so inclined!

I live in New York City with my husband and our overstuffed bookshelves, and I'm represented by Lana Popovic at Zachary Shuster Harmsworth. You can find me on Twitter at @MissDahlELama and blogging at The Daily DahliaYA Misfits, and Barnes & Noble. I'm also a member of OneFourKidLit. Come say hi!

And now, a little about BEHIND THE SCENES:

High school senior Ally Duncan's best friend may be the Vanessa Park - star of TV's hottest new teen drama - but Ally's not interested in following in her BFF's Hollywood footsteps. In fact, the only thing Ally’s ever really wanted is to go to Columbia and study abroad in Paris. But when her father's mounting medical bills threaten to stop her dream in its tracks, Ally nabs a position as Van's on-set assistant to get the cash she needs.

Spending the extra time with Van turns out to be fun, and getting to know her sexy co-star Liam is an added bonus. But when the actors’ publicist arranges for Van and Liam to “date” for the tabloids just after he and Ally share their first kiss, Ally will have to decide exactly what role she's capable of playing in their world of make believe. If she can't play by Hollywood's rules, she may lose her best friend, her dream future, and her first shot at love.

Now you want to read it, right? :) You can start by adding BEHIND THE SCENES on Goodreads!


In honor of Dahlia's book, we're taking you Behind the Scenes to take a look at where our crew members write. Starting today, I'll be showing you my workspace! (Who's excited?) (Somebody, please be excited.)

Welcome to my office!

For years, I wrote wherever I could - on couches, in airports, on buses, in the car, but mostly in coffee shops. Although I loved being able to write anywhere, it took a toll on my body. I've been slo-o-o-wly working on making my workspace more ergonomic, and I feel like it's just about perfect now. I love having a space that's 100% for working. 

How about you, do you have an ergonomic workspace? Or is that something you don't worry about?


Tuesday, you'll see Jas Ketch's and Captain E. Hook's writing spots. On Wednesday, Back from the Dead Red and Lady Byrd Bonebreaker are up. Then on Thursday, Bonny Kitty Cutlass and Curly McGee will share where they write.

Want to join the fun? Share a pic of where YOU write on Twitter, using the hashtag #BtSweek and mention @yabuccaneers. Because we <3 you, you can also log your tweet in the Rafflecopter form for bonus entries for this month's giveaway! You'll find the form below.
