"Captures what fame looks like, and how it affects us all...a fun, juicy love story!"--Elizabeth Banks Solène Marchand, the thirty-nine-year-old owner of an art gallery in Los Angeles, is reluctant to take her daughter, Isabelle, to meet her favorite boy band. But since her divorce, she’s more eager than ever to be close to Isabelle. The last thing Solène expects is to make a connection with one of the members of the world-famous August Moon. But Hayes Campbell is clever, winning, confident, and posh, and the attraction is immediate. That he is all of twenty years old further complicates things. What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate and genuine relationship. It is a journey that spans continents as Solène and Hayes navigate each other’s worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami. For Solène, it is a reclaiming of self, as well as a rediscovery of happiness and love. When Solène and Hayes’ romance becomes a viral sensation, and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solène must face how her romantic life has impacted the lives of those she cares about most.

“Speaking in the Past Tense participates in an expanding critical dialogue on the writing of historical fiction, providing a series of reflections on the process from the perspective of those souls intrepid enough to step onto what is, practically by definition, contested territory.” — Herb Wyile, from the Introduction The extermination of the Beothuk ... the exploration of the Arctic ... the experiences of soldiers in the trenches during World War I ... the foibles of Canada’s longest-serving prime minister ... the Ojibway sniper who is credited with 378 wartime kills—these are just some of the people and events discussed in these candid and wide-ranging interviews with eleven authors whose novels are based on events in Canadian history. These sometimes startling conversations take the reader behind the scenes of the novels and into the minds of their authors. Through them we explore the writers’ motives for writing, the challenges they faced in gathering information and presenting it in fictional form, the sometimes hostile reaction they faced after publication, and, perhaps most interestingly, the stories that didn’t make it into their novels. Speaking in the Past Tense provides fascinating insights into the construction of national historical narratives and myths, both those familiar to us and those that are still being written.

Entrepreneurship involves the creation process-creating something new of value. The creation has to have value to the entrepreneur and value to the audience for which it is developed. This audience can be (1) the market of organizational buyers for business innovation, (2) the hospital's administration for a new admitting procedure and software, (3) prospective students for a new course or even college of entrepreneurship, or (4) the constituency for a new service provided by a non-profit agency. Second, entrepreneurship requires the devotion of the necessary time and effort. Only those going through the entrepreneurial process appreciate the significant amount of time and effort it takes to create something new and make it operational.

This book is designed so as to provide within one cover everything a novelist needs to begin a longer work of fiction. Its basic approach is both directive and prescriptive, but it is also flexible enough to account for all the possible modes and genres from children's fairy-tale to mainstream best-seller. It is the type of book that could be a self-help 'How-To' work for the individual writer, as well as a useful tool for the creative writing classroom. The book provides both the university instructor and the individual writer a hands-on system of instruction to follow in taking a potential novel from its initial germination as an idea to an opening chapter and a complete blocking-out. In a gradual and practical step-by-step procedure, the book will give the inexperienced writer the actual process by which professional novelists create their works, and at the same time, take away the possibly intimidating aura of writing as a mystical process available to only the very clever or the mystically endowed. Contents: The Process; The Techniques; The Idea; The Characters; The Story; The Plot Structure; The Plot Elements; The Complete Blocking Out; The Opening Chapter; The Rest of the Novel; Marketing Your Novel; Bibliography; Glossary; Index.
