Interview & #Giveaway with Magan Vernon, author of The Only Exception! #FMBAuthor



Holly:  What inspired you to write The Only Exception?

Magan Vernon: For the past few  years I’ve wanted to write a book with a conservative guy and liberal girl, but just couldn’t come up with a plot, so I put it aside. During the presidential election an episode of NEW GIRL aired in which Schmidt pretended to be the imaginary sixth son of Mitt Romney, Thugg and some girls that used to be part of their local college Republican chapter. That got my wheels turning and I thought about a conservative governor’s son going to college and what it would be like for someone with the opposite views living next door to him. Trey Chapman was born.

Holly:  Is this a stand alone or will there be a sequel?

Magan Vernon: This is a planned stand alone. I have been working on a companion novel with the character’s two best friends, but there are no current plans to continue on with the story at this time.

Holly:  If you had to cast the characters in a movie, who would play them?

Magan Vernon: Always one of my favorite questions. For Trey it would be a mixture of Max Greenfield and Colton Haynes (if somehow science could make them have a baby. For Monica, Emma Stone has that spunkiness yet vulnerability. For John  Boy, wrestler The Miz is the first person to come to mind. For Monica’s best friend Melanie, Emmy Rossum is the closest I’ve found. And I have to admit that Trey’s dad, the governor, was inspired by a certain governor and former Republican presidential candidate from MA.

Holly:  Did you plot this novel out or write from the hip?

Magan Vernon: A little bit of both. I actually wrote the first half on
my computer and sent to my Alpha reader and then I wasn’t sure what I wanted to happen in the middle so I wrote the last half on my iPad since that was what was in my head. It eventually all worked together.

Holly:  What books do you have coming out next?

Magan Vernon: I’m due with my second child at the end of April, so I’m trying not to plan too much, but I do have the sequel to my New Adult title, My Paper Heart, coming out this summer titled On Paper Wings. It continues Libby and Blaine’s story and will focus more on her eating disorder and his commitment issues. After that I’d really like to get out a companion novel to The Only Exception about Melanie and John Boy.


The Only Exception by Magan Vernon
Publication date:
April 9th 2013
by Beautifully Broken Books
Genre: NA Romance

Synopsis:
Fiercely liberal Monica Remy prefers to blend in. Despite her tattoos, piercings, and outspoken personality, she transferred to Central to escape—before she finds out that her next door neighbor is the uber conservative governor son, Trey Chapman.

No matter how hard she tries to avoid Trey, he still finds a way to get under her skin. Monica can’t stand his crisp white shirts or his staunch views on women. But she can’t help counting every freckle on his face and wondering what it would feel like to have him stop talking politics and kiss her.

A class debate project forces the unlikely pair to work together, and the political lines are blurred in late-night make out sessions. But despite their fiery chemistry, Trey’s politics threatens to smother their relationship for good.


Purchase: 


"Here, let me help you with that." I stopped a few feet away only to have the box lifted from my hand like it was nothing more than a bag of feathers. I looked up to be greeted by a head of perfectly  gelled, sandy brown hair and a blinding white smile. My eyes trailed over his crisp, white dress shirt, tucked into a pair of dress pants. Obviously not the normal college wear. I figured he was the manager or something. A tall manager with a dimpled smile that I couldn’t stop staring at.
"Oh, thanks. I wasn't sure I was going to make it." I returned the smile, but obviously mine hadn't been soaked with bleach like his. I didn't want to give him the wrong idea, so I cleared my throat. "My apartment is right here, so you can just set the box down."
"Apartment 13B, ey?"
I nodded. "Yes, I'm just moving in. I'm Monica. Monica Remy."
He shifted the box to the side and extended his hand. "Then I guess we are neighbors. I’m glad to meet you. I'm Trey Chapman."
"Trey Chapman?" My throat felt like it went completely dry. I had to swallow hard to get some saliva back before I could speak. "As in Governor Chapman's son?"
He kept his big grin on his face. "The one."
I should have recognized him right off the bat. He and his brothers were like a constant shadow during the governor’s campaign. All three Chapman boys stood behind him with their sandy brown hair and tight-lipped smiles while the future governor discussed his plans for a new Illinois. One that included a new contraception bill, his pride and joy, that changed the usual liberal, Chicago politics of Illinois and had women’s leagues up in arms. It didn’t mean he stopped his precious bill and just said it was “what was best for his state.”
Of course I only got a brief glimpse of Trey Chapman when he was on TV, but I didn’t remember him being this attractive. Or having so many freckles. I had to shake that thought out of my head. I couldn’t let one guy with a dimpled smile phase me. He was the governor’s son for God’s sake.
“I assume you know of him?” He raised his eyebrows.
“Uh, yeah, can’t forget the guy that basically stomped on every policy Illinois had in place for his own conservative agenda.”
“Ouch, Miss Remy, that seems pretty harsh to say about a guy you haven’t actually met. If you want, I can always give you some literature to read up on regarding his policies and plans for the state.”
I knew all too well about his dad’s policies and not one of them I supported. I didn’t know where his son got the balls to try and jam his father’s political agenda down by throat, but I wasn’t a fan of it.
Quickly, I reached for the key in my pocket, unlocked the door, and then I snatched the box out of Trey's arms. "Well, it's good to meet you, Trey, and you seem like a really nice guy, but that doesn't mean I'll ever support your dad."
Before he could get in a word edgewise I threw open the door and slammed it behind me as soon as I was inside. I dropped the box down at my feet and leaned back against the door.
