SECRETS OF A RELUCTANT PRINCESS BY CASEY GRIGGIN Guest Post + Giveaway




Secrets of a Reluctant Princess by Casey Griffin
Publication Date: March 7, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen


At Beverly Hills High, you have to be ruthless to survive…

Adrianna Bottom always wanted to be liked. But this wasn’t exactly what she had in mind. Now, she’s in the spotlight…and out of her geeky comfort zone. She’ll do whatever it takes to turn the rumor mill in her favor—even if it means keeping secrets. So far, it’s working.

Wear the right clothes. Say the right things. Be seen with the right people.

Kevin, the adorable sketch artist who shares her love of all things nerd, isn’t exactly the right people. But that doesn’t stop Adrianna from crushing on him. The only way she can spend time with him is in disguise, as Princess Andy, the masked girl he’s been LARPing with. If he found out who she really was, though, he’d hate her.

The rules have been set. The teams have their players. Game on.

How much of yourself do you put into your characters?

I actively try to avoid infusing myself into my characters because I think it holds them back, and after a while, they’d all seem a bit “samey.” But I think it’s impossible to avoid it entirely because, as a writer, my stories will always be influenced by my experiences, the people around me, and my own opinions. In that way, a little piece of me goes into every novel I write, and that includes the characters. Then again, maybe that’s what can make the characters in a story so relatable to readers. If I can identify with some part of them, then hopefully other people will too.

The parts of me that I can see in my characters would be that I’m totally geeky like Kevin, the love interest. I’m gullible like Lennox. I’m blunt like Keelie. I’ve been teased like the main character, Andy, and I’m cheesy like her dad. And hopefully, readers will also find things they have in common with some of the characters found in Secrets of a Reluctant Princess.
