The Rules of Persuasion by Amity Hope
Publication Date:  August 14, 2017
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush


1)    Take things slow (her rule)
2)    Make it believable (his rule)

After tragedy hit her family, Meg Matthews officially crossed the line from “good girl” to “bad girl.” Motorcycle? Check. Graffiti? Check. The only thing Meg hadn’t planned on was blackmail. Too bad now a certain infuriating boy holds Meg’s future in his hands…
            When Luke Prescott—star pitcher and town golden boy—catches Meg vandalizing the school, she’s given two choices: face the consequences or enter into a fake relationship with him to get his parents and his ex off his back.
            But as Meg and Luke grow closer, they both realize they’ve been keeping secrets from each other. Their fake relationship might be doomed from the start—if they can’t learn to open up to the one person they never thought they’d trust.


Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains late-night graffiti sessions, flirty baseball lessons, and a never-ending list of relationship rules just made to be broken.

Where I Find My Inspiration

 I know a lot of my fellow authors use playlists these days. While I love the idea, I’ve found I’m too easily distracted to listen to music (or anything else, for that matter) while trying to write. Unfortunately for me, this also means I have to avoid the cute little local coffee shop, despite thinking it would be so fun to write there!

Over the years I’ve found my best source for inspiration is of the visual variety. This stems WAY back to my Creative Writing 101 class. I’m sure I’m dating myself here but my professor strongly encouraged us to use picture boards. Of course, back then this was done via a large piece of tag board, a stack of magazines, a pair of scissors, and a bottle of glue.

These days, Pinterest is this writer’s new best friend. I love to be able to match faces to my characters. I also love that I can find inspiration for locations, dates, hobbies...just about anything.
