1929 & Bleeding

So, what did you all think of Chapter 1? I can tease you with the knowledge that chapter 1 is, in fact, our shortest chapter.

How do you think Annabell Mason became Annabell Hayworth? Who do you think shot her? And why would a Charleston/Savannah girl be all the way up in Wilmington at a party on the Cape Fear River?

If you haven't read it, visit HELLO GIGGLES to read the first chapter. And TELL YOUR FRIENDS!!!

Diamond Gothic is launching on Sunday, and I'm here to tell you it's the bees knees! Think Anne of Green Gables meets the Great Gatsby... We're so excited to introduce you to our characters.

What IS Diamond Gothic? DG began as a short narrative written one bored & rainy evening in Wilmington, North Carolina where I was filming the final season of One Tree Hill. If you know me at all, you know I have a MILLION balls in the air and the idea of starting a new project wasn’t even an option. But if I could collaborate... I thought... And within a few days the concept of a rotating internet novel was born!

Without hesitation the HelloGiggles team outstretched a hand to help a fellow sista. They introduced me to the lovely and hilarious JC Coccoli who I knew would lend a playful and smart-as-a-whip voice to the story; and, for another unique voice, I approached long-time galpal, actress & writer Abigail Spencer, to be our third authoress. I sent out chapter one and said “lets play!”

Thus began months of improvisational writing, each author “yes, and”ing the author before her, no one of us knowing what will happen next. Each chapter is approximately 3 pages long-- just enough to wet your palate and keep you coming back for more.

Stay tuned to HelloGiggles and for deets! Ciao!
