Victoria Rowell Book Cover

There is nothing I enjoy more than a good read.  A good novel can hold it’s own against any TV show or movie.  So of course, I have my favorite novelist and I’m always adding to that list of authors.  I would have never guessed that I’d be adding a novel by Victoria Rowell to my list of must-reads.   Yes, Victoria Rowell a.k.a. Drucilla of Y&R fame, has written a novel, Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva, about an actress that is written off of her TV soap opera.  Rowell’s Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva will be released on May 4.  I can’t wait.  It looks like sheer fun.

My excitement has nothing to do with her days on Y&R, when I stopped watching Mamie was still a maid for John Abbott.  I’m excited about this one because honestly, I don’t think I have ever seen any author have this much fun promoting a book before.  That’s not to say that others don’t enjoy touring and promotion, but just visit Rowell’s site and you’ll see what I mean.  Not only does she have webisodes-hilariously funny scenes that she acts out-but she has also released a song on iTunes.  There will also be a virtual book released simultaneously on the book release date.

As an aspiring novelist myself, I have to give Rowell credit for one thing if nothing else, she has definitely broadened my view of what is possible when publishers ask the inevitable: “And how do you plan to promote this book?”  I will definitely stay tuned.  In the meantime, you can check out a webisode below.  This is going to be good.  Much success Victoria!
