About Love, Reality Style

Love, Reality Style tells the story of cake-loving third-grade teacher Mary Grace Falcone, who receives a proposition of marriage from her germ-phobic boyfriend Ralph Ichy that throws her comfortable life into a tailspin. Should she marry Ralph? The man dubbed “the CEO of Antiseptic Hands”? Reluctantly, and despite the differing opinions of her best friends Jayde and Annie, Mary Grace accepts. Her decision gets her meddling mother off her back, but also lands her on a reality wedding show where handsome host, Nick Charmin, unexpectedly falls for her. Ultimately, Mary Grace must decide between hot Nick and faithful Ralph, and whether or not a slice of cake is really the answer to all of life’s problems. 

Love, Reality Style was inspired by Judith’s desire to write a straight-up romantic comedy. She thought a great setting for such a story would be a reality television show, so, after some brainstorming, the wedding show I Do was born.  Since most of Judith’s writing is character driven, she decided it was time to come up with an eclectic cast, including cake-obsessed Mary Grace, germ-phobe Ralph, Annie of the failing marriage, snarky, successful Jayde, and overbearing, neurotic Angela. 

Love, Reality Style is being published by Blue Moon Publishers and is being marketed by DigiWriting, both firms based in Toronto, Canada. It is available on Amazon and at local New Jersey bookstores.
