The Power Trip & Pinterest

Thursday, 31 May, 2012 / Published in Blog

Hi everyone ~

Well, my journey is just about over writing The Power Trip.  I’m in the final few days of putting all the pieces together… still not quite sure how it’s all going to end.  The book is set on a state of the art luxury yacht off the coast of Cabo San Lucas.  It’s a tropical getaway with a cast of global power-hungry elites that turns sour when they find out maybe they don’t control as much of the world as they thought…

Some great new characters come to life in this book – you’ll meet Aleksandr Kasianenko, a billionaire Russian oligarch, and his sexy supermodel girlfriend, Bianca. Hammond Patterson, a driven Senator, and his lovely but unhappy wife, Sierra. Cliff Baxter, a charming, never married movie star, and his ex-waitress girlfriend, Lori. Taye Sherwin, a famous black UK footballer and his interior designer wife, Ashley. Luca Perez, a male Latin singing sensation with his older decadent English boyfriend, Jeromy.  And Flynn, a maverick journalist with his Asian renegade female friend, Xuan.  Along for the ride are Russian mobsters, pirates, and Mercedes – a bad little Mexican girl with larceny on her mind.  So… take The Power Trip with me, and lets all have fun!

I must confess, Pinterest is my new obsession!  While wrapping up The Power Trip I’ve had to curb my pinning addiction, as it’s so easy to spend hours looking at everyone’s boards.  What an incredible social media format… it’s like Martha Stewart, meets Fashion Week, meets HGTV, meets Oprah’s Favorite Things!  I’m totally hooked!  Many of you have found me on Pinterest, and I love reading your comments, following your boards, and seeing my books pop up on your must read books lists.  One of my favorite pins is of a well worn paperback copy of Hollywood Wives that’s been loaned so many times the owner had to put tape on the cover to hold it together.  Nothing makes me happier to see!

As soon as The Power Trip is wrapped up, I’ll be delving into finishing up The Lucky Santangelo Cookbook – a fun cookbook featuring Lucky, Bobby, Lennie, Max and all their favorite recipes.  It’ll be an Italian feast!  And with that said I’ll be pinning lots of recipes!

Okay, back to writing!

More soon,

  1. Hi Jackie,
    I have two questions. When will all of your books be available in ereader form? Also, I just re-read Vendetta: Lucky’s Revenge and was reminded of Lucky and Lennie’s son, Gino but he hasn’t been written about since, only Max has…will that be changing?
    Thank you, Laura
