Would You Rather... 
with Carol Maloney Scott

Chips, chocolate or cheese?

Chocolate. Everything is better with chocolate, except pickles. There is no hope for pickles.

Bridget Jones, Becky Bloomwood or Carrie Bradshaw?

Bridget was one of the first chick lit characters to make me laugh out loud and embarrass myself in public. So, definitely Bridget.

Wine, beer or vodka?

Wine. Vodka is too strong, and beer reminds me of pee.

Camping or spa vacation?

This one is spa times a billion. However, in a few weeks I am going camping – pray for me.

Water or mountains?

Water wins, but mountains are a close second. A mountain lake is ideal, but I am a beach girl, too.

Zombies or vampires?

Vampires. They are glamorous and mysterious, and zombies are just…yucky. I especially hate that noise they make – you’re dead, shut up!!

Dogs or cats?

Dogs all day long. They provide endless entertainment, unconditional love and comfort. But I must say I have seen some damn cute kittens recently. I just prefer animals that actually like me. Also without claws.

Coke or Pepsi?

Coke. But I REALLY need to stop drinking soda! Never mind vampires or zombies – hunchbacks will need to be my new favorite characters, when I turn into a pretzel from osteoporosis, due to a lifetime of drinking sugary acid. Okay, rant over.

Coffee or tea?

Neither. I am secretly not a real grown up. Except for the wine.

Dine out or take away?

I enjoy both, depending on how much I feel like sitting upright and waiting for my food while watching other people…never mind, take away.

High heels, sneakers or flip flops?

High heels, even though the same bones that fear becoming a hunchback also politely ask that I favor the other two choices a little more often.

Physical Book or ebook?

I used to be staunchly loyal to physical books, but if I continued down that path I would be buried in fiction right now. My husband bought me a Kindle a couple of years ago, and it is my new best friend.

Paperback or Hardcover?

Hardcovers are archaic, and a complete waste of money.

Pen or pencil?

Pen when I am journaling, pencil in my calendar book, and when plotting my novels. Feelings can be permanent, but plans need to be flexible.

Mad Men, Downton Abbey or Breaking Bad?

Breaking Bad. The tension was incredible.

Drama or comedy?

Even though I have come to love some quality dramatic series and movies, comedy will always be my favorite. Laughter is essential to my well-being. Plus so many things are so hilarious!

Twilight or Hunger Games?

I hate both equally.

Lipstick, lipgloss or chapstick?

I used to be lipstick all the way, but I’ve recently discovered gloss can also be fun. Chapstick is for children, men and nuns.

Facebook or Twiter?

Facebook. Twitter is just too limiting for me – I am a wordy chick!

Plot your entire novel or fly by the seat of your pants?

I plot the whole thing, and then make a million changes, just like in my real life. I’m a flexible planner.

Accidental Makevers

Twenty-something, single mom Bianca yearns for more. The cosmetology license she worked so hard to get is collecting dust while she waitresses for her mother’s catering business, but she has no clue how to turn her dreams of being a makeup artist into reality. Adding to her unhappiness is her dead-end relationship with her immature, video game-obsessed baby daddy, Max. Although he runs a successful business and Bianca still gets a thrill whenever she sees him play the drums in his cover band, Chain, she can’t deny that he’s starting to feel like her big, tattooed second child.

In desperate need of a life makeover, her fortune takes a positive turn when she crosses paths with an impulsive, runaway bride who has the connections to help Bianca achieve her goals. Suddenly, doors are being opened for her and she has a fabulous, new job that’s reigniting her zest for life. Too bad Max isn’t on board with these changes, and he starts acting like a jealous jerk, which brings their faltering relationship to a boiling point just about the time Bianca meets Eric, a sexy and charming financial manager. Eric comes from a different world, but one Bianca is increasingly eager to join. 

Bianca expects her friends and family to be supportive of her budding romance with Eric, but to her surprise, they’re all on Team Max and they rally behind him when he launches a campaign to win her back. Nothing wrong with bar fights, fake girlfriends, and strategically placed rodents when they're all in the name of true love, right?

Will she be lured back to her familiar life, or will a successful career makeover beautify her love life?
