  • Christy – Book #1
  • Amy S - Book #2
  • Debbie - Book #3

  • Jadeen J- Book #5

Now it’s time for the party, giveaway & Jamie McGuire interview. *squeeeeeee*

Things have come a long way since I first interviewed Jamie back in August of 2011. Re-reading it has me giggling because, sure enough… some of the tidbits she hinted at (and/or hoped for) are happening right now! What a fun look-back!

I can imagine the kind of incredible book-whirlwind she is in right now, and am thrilled to have had the opportunity to catch up her!


*hug* Jamie!!! I’m so happy you’re here!!! Congratulations on your huge accomplishments and success!!

Maryse: What a difference a year makes!! I can imagine how much your life has changed from the day you released Beautiful Disaster to today. The things you’ve learned, your gained experience and knowledge of the book industry (on both sides, self pub AND traditional publishing). An amazing celebration of your work and such a success story! So… what do you think of all this? How does it feel?

Jamie: I’m still trying to process it all. I was solely self-published this time last month. Watching so many different, momentous things happen within a month’s time has been overwhelming, but in a completely positive and amazing way. I knew from the beginning that I’d made the right choice with Atria Books (a division of Simon &Schuster). But I’m now fresh from my first meeting with Atria’s staff, and I must say, I feel I’ve come into a company that feels like a family, and have made true friendships. I’m already looking forward to my next visit. When I started out in the industry as a self-published author I heard a lot of horror stories about publishing houses from authors. Having now experienced both sides, my view couldn’t be more different. Atria has not only made the transition smooth and pleasant, but an amazing, magical experience I’ll never forget.

Maryse: I’m so excited for you! You deserve this incredible success!! We’ve heard about the great Beautiful Disaster movie news and we are THRILLED! As you know, your fans (and my fellow Travis enthusiasts) have come up with all sorts of “Travis and Abby” dream casts. Do you have a “dream cast” you’d like to share?

Jamie: I’m thrilled, too! Of course, each time I write a book it plays out as a movie in my head. Seeing BEAUTIFUL DISASTER come to life onscreen has always been a dream of mine, but now it’s reality! 

I don’t watch a lot of television, so I’m not familiar enough with young Hollywood to make a well- informed decision for Abby, but I think Brittany Snow would make a fantastic America, Cam Gigandet would make the perfect Shepley, and Chris Hemsworth has been my first choice for Travis since I watched his performance in Thor (and more recently, The Avengers). Chris could definitely nail the fierce and soft sides of Travis in a way few actors could.

Maryse: Great choices!! I can’t wait to see them come alive! Any exciting news we might not yet know about? Upcoming projects? Travis’s book is highly anticipated, but what about his brothers? Can we look forward to more contemporary romance novels by Jamie McGuire?

Jamie: The Maddox brothers are certainly worthy of their own novels, and no doubt they would be a hoot to write about. I’ve listened to my readers, and the majority of them would like to read about Trent, first, and then Thomas. Taylor and Tyler tied for third, of course! So, that is the order I would write them. However, there are other novels I’ve been waiting to write, plus I’ll be taking some time off for family after the release of WALKING DISASTER, so the brothers will have to wait. You can stay updated on my author page on Facebook, or my website. I’m very excited about adding a “BEAUTIFUL DISASTER MOVIE” tab so that readers can read about the latest updated on casting, production, trailers and more!

Maryse: Yayyyyy!! We have so much more to look forward to, and that’s all we could hope for!

*starts chanting* THE TWINS! THE TWINS! THE TWINS! (hint hint!! heheheheh)

Thank you so much Jamie!! ;)

Tori August 14, 2012 at 10:55 AM

When I got my Kindle, I happily purged my real books, only leaving my favorites to take up precious bookshelf real estate. I think Travis earned a spot on that shelf with the number of times I’ve read BD. Fingers Crossed!

Kati August 14, 2012 at 11:08 AM

Ohhhlalaaaa!! I am quite excited to meet this very mysterious TRAVIS *** XOXO *** Have not read this yet, but quite recently moved it to the top of my must read list (of like 68)!

Shan August 14, 2012 at 12:16 PM

I squee’d…LOL), heart palpations and a smile from ear to ear…YAY! That hottie with the dimples and tattoos galore (on Maryse’s Book Blog FB page) has Travis all over him…YUMMY!!!! I should have took a “sick” day today cause imma be on this site all day, enduring all the yummy Travis talk ;-)

Holley August 14, 2012 at 5:15 PM

I found out about Beautiful Disaster on this very site after trying to fill a void from another book(s)! Boy, did it fill that void!!! I fell in LOVE with BD (and never looked back at the *ahem* other books) and have read it over and over!! Can’t wait for Walking Disaster! I will follow all of Jamie’s characters until their stories end….then I will just re-read them! ;-) Thank you so much for your book suggestions & your blog! I wish y’all (Maryse & Jamie) much success!!

Carla August 14, 2012 at 5:16 PM

OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!! We’ll have a book of each Maddox brother?! Gee! I can’t believe it! I thought it would be just Trent! OH MY! Tha’s amazing! Oh yeah Cam is a perfect Shepley! He’s charming as hell. Ohhhh my!!! Chris as Travis!? Now I’m really surprised, I never thought about him like that.

Oh thank you! This was great! I loved all the things you did to celebrate this date! Travis, Abby and Jamie deserve it. ;)

Susana August 14, 2012 at 5:18 PM

I Love the book…. I can’t wait until april to have WD…. Thanks For the giveaway!!!….

Jadeen J August 14, 2012 at 5:22 PM

I read a review a couple days ago saying, if your older than 18-30 years old then don’t read it. Are they crazy, because I’m turning 50 years old on the 20th and I love this book. Just because a person is older than 30 doesn’t mean we’ve become prudes and can’t enjoy a story and character like Travis. I would consider Travis hot no matter what my age was. Thanks Jamie for writing a great book.

Heather August 14, 2012 at 5:30 PM

Love this book and thanks for the giveaway!

cassie August 14, 2012 at 5:33 PM

Loved the book so amazing. Already pre-ordered WD and rereading BD in the mean time :) I love your website with all the updates the giveaways are great too thank you!!!!!

I would love to win this book, I haven’t had a chance to read it yet.

Jackie August 14, 2012 at 5:38 PM

I read Beautiful Disaster when it was self published. My perfect Travis would be Adam Levine. He has the tattoes and the look going already. And I would like to see this turned into a movie. I’ve read there’s talk about so I’m hoping it is made into a movie.

melissa August 14, 2012 at 5:50 PM

I can not wait for the movie to come out. I think Chris would be a awesome drool worthy Travis. *Squueeee* I am also counting down the days until Walking Disaster comes out. *Sigh*

Georgia August 14, 2012 at 7:05 PM

So excited that this is going to be a movie!!! I know he is a little older, but I always see a young Tom Hardy in my head for Travis… maybe because of the tattoos or the fact he played a fighter before? But I love Chris Helmsworth too!!!

Stephanie L August 16, 2012 at 2:47 PM

I found your blog through Colleen Hoover. I am excited to read your reviews!

Maryse August 16, 2012 at 3:01 PM

Oh wow yes! I see that. I just found these of Tom Hardy online and can certainly say that could be Travis (in my head)

Myra N August 16, 2012 at 8:01 PM

What a wonderful interview! I love Beautiful Disaster.
Oh Maryse, how you’ve changed my fave author list, book shelves and my kindle content. I’m so glad to have found your blog! I would’ve missed out on so many fantastic authors & great stories. Thanks Maryse!
