Title: Prince Charming
Author: S. Celi
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Re-Release Date: August 11, 2015
School. Tests. Scholarships. Goals. Senior class overachiever Geoff Miller thought he had it all figured out. All he needed to do was make it through the next six months, graduate, and get on with his life. College at the University of Virginia beckoned him—and he just wanted to put the last horrible four years at Heritage High School in the “done” folder. But Geoff hadn’t counted on one important thing: beautiful, magnetic Laine Phillips. For years, Geoff crushed on Laine from afar. He didn’t think she even knew he existed. In fact, his obsession seemed to him like a distraction from an unhappy life in a snobby, Greater Cincinnati suburb. Until the day everything changed. And when it did, this unlikely Prince Charming got a chance to make his move on Laine.

Q: What stands out to you as the biggest update to this new release of Prince Charming? A: The story has been reviewed by new sets of eyes, and that has improved it. Not much about the story has changed, but it's fresher and crisper. With the help of Booktrope, I'm able to get the messages of this book across to a whole new audience of readers. Q: You describe Prince Charming as “a modern twist on the Cinderella fairy tale.” How did you decide he’s the one who needs saving? A: I think teen boys and girls aren't as different as people make them out to be in life. They both go through huge transitions during high school, and I wanted to tell some of those themes in a new way. Geoff's character struggles a lot with himself and his perception of the people around him in the book. In fact, he misinterprets a lot of the ways people react to him. I really enjoyed exploring this character and his flaws. He needs help--and he gets it in this book!
Q: What is your favorite part of the story? A: My favorite part is Geoff's internal voice. He's blunt, sarcastic, has a chip on his shoulder, and unsure of himself throughout much of the story. It was a challenge to convey, and I loved translating that to the page.
Q: What’s next? What are you working on now? A:This year has been all about back to basics for me. I've already completed the first drafts of two novellas and a full young adult novel this year, and I'm working on my second one. It's another fairy tale "twist". We'll see where it goes!
