Fifteen Minutes of Shame
a novel by Lisa Daily

America?s favorite TV dating expert just found out her husband is cheating.
Live, on national television.

Darby Vaughn, a small-town girl turned dating guru, has finally landed the life she?s always dreamed of: A handsome, charming husband she?s crazy about, a fabulous home in an exclusive neighborhood, a bestselling dating book, and tax-deductible pedicures. Thousands of women have followed her man-snagging advice to the letter, in hopes that their lives will turn out just like hers. But when she finds out her husband is cheating, her publicity-perfect world spins out of control.

Not only is the most humiliating moment in her life splashed across every supermarket tabloid and celebrity gossip show, but her reputation as America?s favorite love expert is shot. Her book sales have tanked, her publisher has canceled the rest of her tour, and her love life has become fodder for late-night TV. If Darby takes her philandering husband back, she will be breaking her own most cardinal law of relationships (Never stay with a cheater!), and her career will be over. If she sticks to her own rules, she?ll lose the only man she has ever truly loved. As her marriage and career fall apart, Darby learns that even dating experts get their hearts broken, and that when it comes to matters of the heart, none of us are in complete control.

Great angles for reviewers & feature writers
Fifteen Minutes of Shame

Don?t Call Me Cute.
Fifteen Minutes of Shame is funny and feminine and decked out in the mandatory pastel cover, but it?s also smart with emotional depth. It?s a question that has many women?s fiction writers up in arms: Is it worse to be perceived as a stuffy literary author, and then have the reader be shocked to find that you?re funny? Or worse to be perceived as funny but shallow, and have the reader be surprised to find that you?re smart? Why lots of women?s fiction authors can?t stand cute.

Reality Lit
Bad-boss books such as The Devil Wears Prada, The Second Assistant and The Nanny Diaries have given readers a peek into the real-life worlds of fashion, Hollywood, and Park Avenue mommies. Now, Fifteen Minutes of Shame gives an insider?s look of the coaches and gurus who have proliferated popular culture in the last decade, offering advice in every area of our lives from finance to romance. Why readers are so fascinated by what goes on behind the scenes.

Can Stepparents Sue For Custody?
Fifteen Minutes of Shame delves into one of the most controversial topics in family law today: stepparents rights.  The main character in Fifteen Minutes of Shame, Darby Vaughn, is a celebrity dating guru who goes through a very public divorce, and hopes to gain custody of her stepchildren, whom she has grown to love. Fifteen Minutes of Shame author Lisa Daily and celebrity divorce attorney John Mayoue offer commentary and insight.

New Trend in Fiction: Hybrid Lit
Fifteen Minutes of Shame is a dating advice book within a novel. Lisa Daily is leading the pack in the emerging trend of Hybrid Lit  (a non-fiction and fiction blend). She talks about why reality is seeping into our fiction, with a crop of new novels that offer everything from writing instruction to recipes.
