Enter for your chance to win a Los Angeles Prize Pack!

Center Stage, Los Angeles, Lovestruck Literary, Young Adult Fiction
Many details in both The Rock Star's Daughter and Center Stage were inspired by the time I've spent living in Los Angeles. I wanted to give my readers a little glimpse into SoCal life, so I selected a few items critical to life in LA for a music fan like Allison Burch! To celebrate the September 14 release of Center Stage, you can enter for a chance to win a copy of the book, a Beats By Dre Pill Speaker, and 2 bottles of California-style nail polish by Lauren B by answering this question on Facebook: Which song would you use for your audition on a reality TV singing show, and why? The grand prize winner will be chosen randomly from entrants on Sept. 23, 2015! Good luck!

One of my very best friends drove down from San Francisco to visit me while I was in California, so we took in the sights from the roof deck at the hotel on a Thursday night: [caption id="attachment_1249" align="alignleft" width="300"] Petit Ermitage - Thursday night decadence[/caption] ¬†Around midnight, my friends and I had an irresistible urge to eat tacos, and fortunately in West Hollywood, tacos are available at just about any time of the day or night (for better…
