Out of Character Book Tour: Author Q&A and Giveaway for a $15 Amazon Gift Card

Out of Character
by Molly Zenk
Genre: Contemporary Romance, Inspirational
238 pages

After the loss of her brother, actress Harmony Jones struggles with daily life. Landing the lead role on the hit faith-based living history show, 1700s Life, might be the perfect way to reconnect with her faith and be her big acting break. 

Tired of hiding his strong faith and convictions to get secular roles, David Hawkins jumps at the chance to play the curate on 1700s Life. It's the perfect vehicle to spread God’s word. 

Elliot Banes’ career needs an image makeover, so he accepts the naval hero role on 1700s Life. Getting away from his overbearing mother is an added bonus. His true hope is to learn to speak his mind instead of always fading into the background. 

When a scripted love triangle between Harmony, David, and Elliot becomes a real life love triangle, Harmony must make a difficult decision. She hoped to find her wavering faith, she didn't count on finding love as well. If that was her only obstacle, the role would be a breeze. Unfortunately, there’s an on-set spy intent on causing drama. Can Harmony see through all the lies and secrets to the truth in her heart, or will she end up falling for the wrong man?

A Q&A with the Author

When did you first consider yourself a writer?

2nd grade. I had a notebook that I’d write short stories in. I don’t really remember what the stories were about, but I’ve been writing stories from a young age.

Do you have a favorite movie? which of your novels can you imagine made into a movie?

I don’t know if I have a favorite movie. I can’t pick just one! I tend to need some hint of romance or the possibility of romance to really get into a movie. That’s the romance writer in me, always interested in character interaction and relationships. When I write, I "see" a movie in my head and write down what I see. The creative process is very visual for me. For that reason, I could see just about any of my books being a movie.

What inspired you to write this book?

A very, very, very early draft was written around the time of the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. It’s changed a lot since then once I started asking myself questions like "what if they were actors?" etc. but my original inspiration was POTC plus reality TV shows like "1900s House."
