A Thousand Dollars for a Kiss offers a priceless and hilarious–look at what can lie beneath the glitz and glamour of celebrity. Cindy Bokma infuses this “be careful what you wish for” tale with great energy, humor, and sharp, witty social observation.
–Gayle Brandeis, author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write, The Book of Dead Birds, and Self Storage
” A Thousand Dollars for a Kiss is a biting piece of social satire about our obsession with celebrity culture, cleverly cloaked in the perfume-scented guise of ‘chick lit.’ I practically inhaled the story and loved how Bokma seamlessly wove a morality tale into the lighthearted, fast-paced narrative. Bokma’s writing is funny, smart, and incisive, and I didn’t want the book to end!”
—Jen Lancaster, author of Bitter is the New Black
A Thousand Dollars For A Kiss is a fun, funny, and thoughtful novel. Barrett Greer is one of a kind, and true-to-life. What a pleasure to live in her world for a little while.

“A superficial, celebrity-obsessed heroine who will have you laughing out loud and cheering on her transformation.”
—Robyn Harding, author of The Journal of Mortifying Moments and The Secret Desires of a Soccer Mom
“What seems to start out as a standard, although engaging, story of girl-meets-Hollywood ends up surprisingly real and a little bit dark. There had better be a sequel — I have to know what happens to these characters next.”
– Amy DeZellar, author of Dating Amy
