Jenny met Chance for the very first time when she was assigned as his partner in their Junior Communications class. But one clever lie to rescue a doomed assignment later, and the whole school was suddenly convinced that Little-Miss-Really-Likes-Having-As and the most scandalous heartbreaker in school have been best friends forever.
It’s amazing how quickly a lie can grow—especially when you really, really want it to be the truth. With Jenny, Chance can live the normal life he’s always kind of wanted. And with Chance, Jenny can have the exciting teen experiences that television has always promised her. And through it all, they hold on to the fact that they are “just friends.” But that might be the biggest lie of all.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, I’ve never been a big fan of editing. One reason is that it feels like getting scolded (though I understand that’s not what is happening). Seriously, give me a first draft any day. The other reason is that I’m a hands-on person. I can’t read a word document (or ...read moreJust Friends, writing, Swoon Reads, Tiffany Pitcock, process, publishing, editing, author
I use a lot of stock art for my covers. Photo shoots are great, illustrators are lovely... stock photography is readily available and inexpensive. That doesn't mean my covers are generic, though! I use multiple images and manipulate them to create new, unique scenes—like I did for Just Friends.I'm sure you remember the winning cover for ...read moreJust Friends, Liz D., Tiffany Pitcock, process, Cover Creation, cover, design, art
I’ve wanted to be a writer since I was eight years old. I still remember being in Mrs. Ireland’s third-grade class, writing stories in my notebook instead of learning my multiplication tables. I remember promising my best friend Kasey I’d dedicate my first book to her (which sixteen years later I did). I was prepared. I knew ...read moreJust Friends, writing, experience, Swoon Reads, Tiffany Pitcock, publishing, author

I have a confession to make, one that shames me as both an author and an English major: I hate editing. I hate reading my own writing. I hate having my mistakes pointed out to me. You know that college senior meme that says “Rough draft? You mean final draft”? That was me up until I started working with Swoon ...read moreJust Friends, YA, writing, behind the scenes, young adult, experience, book, Swoon Reads, Tiffany Pitcock, update, news, contemporary, editing, reading, romance, teen, author
