Today we've got a special treat—author Molly O'Keefe is here to share some deleted scenes from Wild Child, her latest release. Wild Child's heroine is a child-TV-star-turned-author, and she returns to her hometown to write another book. Of course, then she meets the hero, and things happen. Here's Molly's explanation of the exclusive outtake, followed by the scenes themselves:
Wild Child was a novel written in revisions. In the first few drafts Monica was in Bishop to write the movie screenplay based on her best-selling book about her father's murder. And Jackson didn't have a sister, but a mother in the early stages of dementia.
One of my FAVORITE series of scenes that were eventually cut from the book was the following outtake with notes being passed between Jackson and Monica. While the scenes didn't stay, the chemistry between them was started in these scenes and only made more potent in the finishing product. I hope you enjoy.
H&H Presents an Outtake from Molly O'Keefe's Wild Child:
Scarlett O’Hara was going to make an appearance. Monica was sure of it.
Any minute, wearing a dress made out of curtains Scarlett, or a Scarlett reinactor, or some relative of Margaret Mitchell was going to come strolling down the grand curving staircase at the Peabody Bed and Breakfast and say “fiddle dee dee” or whatever the hell it was she said.
