Welcome to another Six Sentence Sunday on Books by Banister!  Thanks so much for stopping by to check out another snippet from my Oscar-themed novel BLAME IT ON THE FAME.  Today's sampling will give you a peek inside the marriage of Best Actress nominee Danielle Jamison and her husband, Logan Rafferty.  Dani and Logan both rose to fame on a popular primetime teen soap called "Doheny Bay."  Since the end of that show, Danielle's career has skyrocketed and she is now one of the most sought-after movie stars in Hollywood.  As for Logan . . .

"I wish you wouldn't yell at the kids," Logan said when he was sure Sierra was out of earshot.

"Yeah, well, I wish you'd get a job so that I wasn't solely responsible for supporting our family and this household, but I guess we're both shit out of luck."

"You know my agent's got feelers out."

"He's had feelers out since Doheny Bay got cancelled; I’ve done seven movies since then, and you’ve done what - two Japanese beer commercials and some lame-ass comedy with Seann William Scott?”

“Those residuals checks from Doheny Bay help out.”

“$1500 a month - woohoo, call the Lamborghini dealership!"

Hope you enjoyed that!  Be sure to check out the snippets of all the talented writers who are sharing their work this week at Six Sunday or search for the hashtag #sixsunday on Twitter.
