Michelle Madow Mini Interview & Promo

 Savannah. Courtney. Peyton.

The three sisters grew up not knowing their father and not quite catching a break. But it looks like their luck is about to change when they find out the secret identity of their long-lost dad—a billionaire Las Vegas hotel owner who wants them to come live in a gorgeous penthouse hotel suite. Suddenly the Strip's most exclusive clubs are all-access, and with an unlimited credit card each, it should be easier than ever to fit right in. But in a town full of secrets and illusion, fitting in is nothing compared to finding out the truth about their past.

1) What was it like to start an entirely new project? Scary, Exciting, Difficult?

I first came up with the idea for The Secret Diamond Sisters in September 2010, and finished the first draft in early 2011, so it’s been nearly four years since I started it! But it was exciting to create all new characters in a completely new setting. The story switches between the points of view of four very different characters—Savannah, Courtney, Peyton, and Madison. Savannah is optimistic and innocent, Courtney is kind and practical, Peyton is rebellious and outspoken, and Madison is a queen-bee who might not be as confident as she appears. It was fun getting into their heads, and it was great working with a setting as glamorous and glitzy as Las Vegas!

2) Where did the inspiration for this book come from?

I visit Las Vegas every year because of a family event, and I was walking through my favorite hotel — The Wynn — when I thought, “What would it be like to live here?” From there, the idea for The Secret Diamond Sisters formed! I love how the city bursts with magic and excitement. Vegas does everything as big as possible, so being there is like entering a fantasyland. My favorite part is definitely all the different hotels. Each one is a different theme, and they all have such distinct personalities. A few of my favorite hotels are mentioned in The Secret Diamond Sisters (Paris, the Venetian, and many implications to the Wynn), so hopefully readers are transported into these magical hotels while they’re reading the book!

3) Any plans for another book tour?

Yes! Starting on March 1st, I will be appearing at events throughout the country. My tour schedule is listed here on my website: I look forward to meeting fans and signing books!
