When her new online relationship heads south, a hopeful digital artist must confront her past in order to embrace the future. The Guy From The Internet is Birdie Song’s new sweet romance, coming 2 Nov 2020.

Birdie, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about The Guy From The Internet.

The Guy From The Internet by Birdie Song

Genre Sweet Romance

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.

Holly Chee does not have her life together. She’s flip-flopped on uni courses and career choices, and somehow scared off her long-term fiancée-to-be, much to the chagrin of her immigrant parents.

But she does have her streaming channel, where she broadcasts her art from her one-bedroom Mount Lawley apartment. And she has that guy from France… assuming he’s even who he says he is.

“The Guy From The Internet” is a sweet #OwnVoices Asian-Australian romance novella, set in the world of Somerville Downs.

Tell us about yourself as a person.

What makes you different from other people?

Did you know the world’s population is a little over 7 billion? If I were a “one in a million” kind of person, there’d be enough people just like me to fill a medium-sized town. Imagine that! A whole town of people just like you. Anyway, I’ve been told I can be a bit odd sometimes…

What is your favorite subject to talk about?

I’m not much of a talker, but there are some things I could listen to others talk about for ages. Their creative process, for one. I love seeing how other creatives go about doing their work. Another is their garden. It’s amazing when you meet a passionate plant nerd who’s really into the science of it—their passion is contagious!

What is your favorite meal?

Right now, I’m obsessed with a burger place about 20 minutes from home. Their patties are juicy, the bread is fantastic, and they probably have the best chips out of any other burger place in town.

Tell us about yourself as a writer.

What made you want to be a writer?

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, starting with paper journals in my terrible juvenile handwriting, but I never thought I could have a career in it until later in life. Outside of my day job, fiction writing has been a way to explore ideas and empathise more with different kinds of people.

What’s your best advice for a new writer?

No matter how long I’ve been writing anything for, I still always feel like a new writer myself. It’s good in a way, helps to keep things fresh and interesting, and there’s always something new to learn about the craft. I’d probably tell them that — to hang onto that “newcomer enthusiasm” and try to keep learning new things.

What are your writing goals for the next year or so?

I’ve got two manuscripts in the works, one (or both!) of which I hope to release next year, but we’ll see how it goes. When I started writing the Somerville Downs stories, I vowed to keep this part of my life light and fun — especially off the back of this interesting year.

Laugh along with a new romantic comedy series set seven years before the movie Sweet Home Alabama, by @Kris_Bock and @dougeboch #RLFblog #RomanticComedyDouglas J Eboch and Kris Bock, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Felony Melanie in Pageant Pandemonium by Douglas J Eboch and Kris Bock

Genre romantic comedy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG (underage drinking)

Big City, Big Glamour, Big Trouble

Before Melanie Smooter became hot fashion designer Melanie Carmichael, she was known as Felony Melanie, the teenage troublemaker of Pigeon Creek, Alabama. Aching to escape the boredom of small-town life, she gets into many reckless adventures. Her boyfriend, Jake, is always by her side – and the local sheriff is usually close behind.

Melanie’s mother has been shoving her into every beauty pageant within twenty miles since Melanie was a toddler. Melanie is getting a little sick of it. She’s on the verge of quitting when she qualifies for the Miss Alabama Princess Pageant in the big city of Mobile. The first prize scholarship could be her ticket out of Pigeon Creek, not to mention that one of the judges is a real, live New York fashion designer. The competition will be fierce. Can a “trailer trash” girl outshine the snooty debutantes?

Meanwhile, Jake and his friends go to Mobile to support Melanie – and to party in the big city. But when the pageant is cursed by disasters from cockroaches in the banquet hall to skunks on stage, the gang suspects someone is sabotaging the contest. They try to figure who’s behind it and why, but it isn’t easy when everyone dismisses you as redneck kids.

Melanie needs to prove herself on stage. Jake and the gang need to make sure she gets the chance. Can they show they’re more than what people see on the surface?
