I asked Amy to visit today on the blog, and she agreed. She's also doing a giveaway of her book, so check out the details and enter below!
Here's a bit about Amy:
Amy Matayo is a graduate of John Brown University and holds a degree in journalism. After graduation, she went to work at DaySpring Cards, where she worked for seven years as Senior Writer and Editor. After the birth of her first child, she became a freelance writer for David C. Cook before pursuing novel writing full time. Her newest book finaled in the 2012 ACFW Genesis contest. Two of her other books semi-finaled in the 2011 Genesis. As the mother of four children with a husband immersed in political life, Amy has very little free time. She prefers to spend that time enjoying intellectual pursuits such as watching television with her feet propped up, watching movies with a bucket of popcorn, and watching her laundry pile high--with no desire to do anything about it. Connect with her at amymatayo.com.
Or whether or not to sell your soul for money.
Now, I haven't exactly been faced with this last dilemma, but I know people who have been. Good people. Kind people. Smart people. Well-intentioned people.
Fake people, but that's beside the point.
In my new book, The Wedding Game, the main characters sign up for a reality show with one goal in mind: to win the competition and walk away two million dollars richer. All they have to do to win: marry a complete stranger and stay that way for six months while working hard to convince the viewers they're in love. Simple, right?
Not so much.
But it got me thinking--what would you do for that kind of money? Sure, it's easy to say "nothing that bad," but is the answer really that simple? What if you needed money for medical bills or your child's education or to pay off your home or to fund the Botox injections you've been waiting on for the past decade (hey--don't judge).
What would you do? I, for one, would never marry a stranger for money. Ever. Not in a million years. No way, no how, no chance it's gonna happen.
Unless a personal chef/housekeeper/masseuse/gardener is involved. In that case, sign me up yesterday. I only hope my husband doesn't mind...
Ellie McAllister has her own problems. She needs money, and she needs it now. Despite her parents' objections and her belief that marriage is sacred, she signs on to The Wedding Game...and wins. Now she's married to a guy she can't stand, and if she wants her hands on the money, she has six months to make voters believe she loves him. Not easy to do since he's the most arrogant man in America.
It doesn't take long for Ellie and Cannon to realize they've made a mess of things...even less time for their feelings for one another to change. But is it too late for them? More importantly, can the worst decision they've ever made actually become one of the best?
