What is #30DaysofRomComs?
It’s exactly what it sounds like … 30 days celebrating the greatest art form known to humankind, the romantic comedy (shut up, I said it, so it must be true). They make us laugh, they make us cry, they make us swoon, and they just don’t make ’em like they used to … so for the next 30 days we’re going to revel in what makes them great.
Ok, so what do I do?

Because rom coms are awesome, duh. And also because I’m releasing my 4th novel, My Unscripted Life, on October 11th. This book is a classic rom com, and exactly the book I would have wanted to read when I was 16. It’s a bit of a love letter to high school Lauren, who spent way too much time feeling absolutely certain that the N*SYNC tour bus would break down outside my house, and I’d just be forced to entertain the band. And so, when I sat down to write my fourth (yes, FOURTH!) novel, I decided to fulfill that wish for 15 year old Lauren. I also wanted to write about the amazing world of film and television sets that I’d been living in for the past couple years as an extra on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. And soon Milo and Dee were off and running, driving around the back roads of tiny southern towns, falling in love amidst the chaos of a movie set, and finding out how fragile a heart can be when under the watchful eye of a camera.
So to celebrate the launch, I decided to get some of my friends together and revel in all that is good and swoony about romantic comedies. Thus, #30DaysofRomComs was born.
