Yours Truly by K.J. Pierce ❤️ Book Tour & Gift Card Giveaway ❤️ (Romantic Comedy)



Izzie Greene never wanted the limelight. As a caterer for Poe, the top-rated U.S. TV show, she had background player down pat. Her main focus was to spoil the cast and crew and fantasize about her celebrity crush, Scotsman Cardwell Bennett, while navigating the daily chaos.

Izzie’s professional life takes a sharp left turn when her ex-boyfriend unexpectedly arrives on set. Her personal life spirals into Hell when she runs afoul of an unethical paparazzo. Thrust into the public eye, her notoriety is fueled by equal measures of constant scrutiny, speculation, and half-truths. Her rumored romance with Cardwell further stokes the flames.

Held captive by the media, accident-prone Izzie struggles to keep her privacy, secrets, and sanity intact—not to mention her sense of humor. With help from her best friend Delly, her temperamental cat Edgar, and unexpected backup, Izzie might withstand the onslaught. And survive the season.



I had just stooped to pull the last tray of scones from the oven when someone leaned over and whispered in my ear.

“Smells lovely.”

Startled, I jerked back my head, connecting with the person behind me. Together, we crashed to the floor in a tangle of bodies. I lifted my cheek from the warm chest I’d landed on and froze.

“Are you okay?” Cardwell smoothed away the hair from my face.

Dumbstruck, I nodded, held my breath, and slid off his body. I didn’t exhale until I sat leaning against the counter, waiting for my racing heart to slow.

Cardwell stood and held out his hand.

I grasped it and let him haul me to my feet. Once upright, I gasped. “Crap! Your nose is bleeding!” Nothing better than head butting the leading man first thing in the morning. I grabbed the closest towel and forced it under his nose. “Sit.” I steered him to the stool Delly vacated.

He leaned back his head, blood oozing through the fabric.

“No, don’t tilt your head!” I shook my open- palmed hands. “Vincent will kill me if you choke on your own blood.”

Cardwell dropped his head back to a normal position, his eyes shining brightly over the top of the towel.

“Keep that in place and pinch just below the bridge of your nose. Don’t move.” I grabbed a second towel, bolted to the icemaker, and created a makeshift ice pack. I rushed back, ignoring his persistent gaze.


   




K.J. Pierce is a jack of all trades. Her interests are varied enough to make this a requirement for a happy existence. Her main goal in life is to understand the human condition, which she explores through various mediums, including fiction, creative nonfiction, and scriptwriting. She sometimes succumbs to itchy-feet syndrome, a holdover from her Army Brat days. As a result, she can sometimes be found bouncing from locale to locale. She earned a BA in English Literature/Creative Writing from Agnes Scott College and a MLitt in The Gothic Imagination from the University of Stirling, Scotland. She puts them to good use by crafting stories that run the gamut in terms of genres, but which always include an exploration of the societal misfit and the darkness which pervades all facets of life, even in the most comic of circumstances.

K.J. currently lives on the east coast of Central Florida with her cat Dorian Gray, who lives up to his name by striving to be the states most prolific lizard serial killer. Yours Truly is her first novel.

    1. Hi, Donna. What a great question! I'm going to narrow it down to 4: 1 - Oscar Wilde, because his wit was (and still is, in my opinion) unparalleled, and I'd love to have even half his ability. 2 - Charlotte Bronte - because Jane Eyre is one of my top 2 favorite books (the other being The Picture of Dorian Gray) and I'd love to truly understand Mr. Rochester. 3 - Kim Harrison - because I absolutely adore her Rachel Morgan series and she's one of the few authors who connected me emotionally with her main character is less than half a page. 4 - Jojo Moyes - I've only read 2 of her books so far - Me Before You and After You - she totally made me snot cry with both and Louisa Clark is such a wonderfully quirky character. If I come close in my writing to creating both a deep emotional connection and a quirky character who isn't stereotypical, I'll consider it a job well done. ~K.J. Pierce
