“One Night is all it took to change everything between Barbie and me. One night to potentially lose the girl of my dreams forever. How do I prove to her that she can trust me? That all I want to do is protect her carefully guarded heart. I need to prove to her that I want to be a part of her world. But How? ”

Dylan lost Barbie once before, now he is determined more than ever to win her heart and trust back. Easier said than done, especially with the new hot guy in town who is in a rock band and is the complete opposite of Dylan.

Barbie has been hurt beyond repair or so she thinks. It would be easier for heart to decide if she didn’t have to protect her little brother. And if Dylan would just put on a shirt! Dylan is not making this easy on her. It helps to have the distraction of the new guy in town cute bad boy Kai. But even though her heart is damaged it still knows what it wants.

When Barbie learns she has a family and with the help of Roxie and Kai, oh and Third and Dylan. They embark on a journey to help bring Barbie closer to a past she never knew existed.

Heidi Acosta brings you the heart felt story of friendship, love and heartbreak in the second book in of the Baby doll series Barbie World.

Interview with author Hiedi Acosta

Why don’t we start by telling the folks a little about you?
I am a mother, wife, sister, writer, zumba newbie, and book devourer.

When and why did you start writing?
I have always loved to write ever since I can remember, but it wasn’t until last year that I decided to pursue it as a career.

Who is your favorite author and why?
OMG!There are so many and they change every time I read a new book. I would have to say right now my favorite is Jessica Sorensen. She is a wonderful writer and a successful indie author and I admire that about her.

Do you feel that any authors inspired your writing? Do you feel that your writing is modeled after him/her?
There are too many authors to name that inspired my writing, every book that I have ever read and fell in love with inspired me in some way. I am sure that some of my writing style is modeled after them, and I can only hope to be as talented.

What do you hope to accomplish with your writing?
Ultimately, I would like to be able to support myself with my writing. But more than that I want my stories to mean something to the reader. I want them to love the characters as much as I do and to me that is priceless.

Traditional or self-publishing and why?
Right now I am self-publishing, but I am also looking into Traditional. I think both have their ups and downs.

Tell us about your most recent book and why we should love or hate your characters.
My most recent book is Barbie World. It is the second installment in the Baby Doll series coming out June 15 2013. You should love the characters because they stay true to themselves. I think people will fall in love with Dylan and Barbie all over again. Dylan especially, he has been through a lot with Barbie and it has helped him grow up. This time he is going to have to work hard to get her attention. Barbie World is filled with heart break, friendship, love, and some great laugh out loud Third moments.

If your book had a soundtrack, what is the first 5 songs you would include?
The first five songs on the Barbie World playlist.

This year’s loving by David Gray

Skyscraper by Demi Lovato

Shattered by O.A.R

Stay by Rihanna

I almost do by Taylor Swift

Aside from writing or reading, what is your favorite pastime?
I love to spend time with my daughter. We like to watch movies, go shopping,and go to the beach. I also love to travel, so anytime there is an opportunity for that I take it.

What is the one thing you want to do, or the one place you want to go, that you would put at #1 on your bucket list?
Europe, I have not been and I want to go so bad. I would love to go for a month and back pack around Europe.

Finally, what else would you like readers to know?
Barbie World picks up where Barbie Girl ended, so I think they are going to be excited to jump right back into Barbie’s world.

And last – but definitely not least – the giveaway for a $25 Amazon gift card (International) and some book swag (US/Can)
