SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY - 4/22/12

Welcome to Books by Banister!  In honor of today being Earth Day, this week's Six Sentence Sunday snippet features the earthiest of the five heroines in my Hollywood-themed Chick Lit novel BLAME IT ON THE FAME.  For the record, internationally famous supermodel-turned-movie star Anaya Reynolds is not the type of girl to recycle (she doesn't even like to wear the same outfit twice!)  In this scene, wild child Anaya has just returned to her hotel room after a hard night of partying.  What she stumbles in on is her disapproving management team (including her agent, Mandy Lyle, and her publicist, Kendra Seegar) lying in wait to read her the riot act over her latest stunt.

Bottom’s up!’ the headline blared.  Beneath it was a large crystal-clear photo of a mini-dress-clad Anaya picking herself up from the sidewalk outside Purgatory, where she’d tripped and fallen as she was exiting the club.  Some enterprising photographer had snapped a shot of her from behind and gotten the full moon.

“When will these girls learn to wear panties?” Mandy asked, shaking her head with despair.

“I had them on earlier in the evening,” Anaya tried to defend herself, “but I gave them to Christophe after we--”

“Please, please, Kendra held up her hand, we don’t need to hear any more about your sordid assignation with that himbo in the toilet.
