His sandy-brown hair is fashionably spiked and a swoon-worthy smile often spread across his tanned face. Shane Mitchell, a record company executive at Platinum Plate Records, emerges by page four in Plebeian In Danger as one of the main characters. But if you read book one, Plebeian Revealed, you would have found him throughout that book too. That is, if you looked hard enough.
Shane has been involved with the fictional band Plebeian since the beginning and is involved in several scenes in Plebeian Revealed. By Plebeian In Danger though, Shane has a new role: President of Platinum Plate Records.
He’s close to the guys in the band, and to Lauren. She trusts Shane at a time when she doesn’t trust many people. In fact, Shane is by her side when she faces her most difficult challenge to date.
As the plot of Plebeian In Danger unfolds, Shane is in the middle of all the action. We learn more about his goals, his dreams and his feelings. And if you are like my beta readers who helped proof the book: many of you will start to fall for him.
But nothing is as good as it seems. Situations become dangerous. Lauren has tough choices to make. And Shane is once again in the middle of the action as the book comes to a dramatic conclusion.
I have to admit as a writer, I started falling for Shane too. He’s funny, irresistible, rich. And while I was developing his character and this story, I changed some plot points to make things, well, interesting.
My favorite spoiler-free quote from Shane: “I carry this everywhere.”
Plebeian In Danger is available now. And trust me, it's a juicy story.
eBooks are available on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, Kobo and iTunes.
Paperbacks are available on Amazon.com and Barnesandnoble.com.
Enjoy your hunt for limes!
He’s quiet and humble. And he plays the loudest instrument in the band Plebeian.
Doug Maggio is Plebeian’s drummer, and he really doesn’t say much. But when he does speak, his words are important.
In Plebeian Revealed, Doug communicates mostly through a raised eyebrow to keyboardist Michael, and then Michael gladly translates for him. But by the end of Plebeian Revealed, Doug speaks for himself in a strong moment of clarity during a bad situation.
In Plebeian in Danger (book two- coming out next week), Doug begins a transition of his own. His journey is fun to watch (well, actually, to read!) In book two, the band members of Plebeian will turn heads and look at him as he once again brings a strong moment of clarity during a bad situation.
My favorite quote from Doug in Plebeian Revealed: “Sunglasses.”
Yeah – that’s all he said. And wasn’t he right when he said it!
Plebeian fans: it's time for book #2!
Plebeian in Danger will be released next week! And to get you primed and ready for Plebeian's messed up world tour, there are two chapters you may want to reread in Plebeian Revealed.
In case you haven't noticed, I leave breadcrumb hints throughout my novels. All of the clues are there, for those readers who like to find them. And whether you knew it or not, Plebeian Revealed was loaded with breadcrumbs.
So, if you want to get ready and you are hungry for breadcrumbs, reread chapters 2 and 20 in Plebeian Revealed.
