About this title

Synopsis:

Party Favors gives a deliciously witty peek into the secretive world of political fundraising in D.C. Co-written by a former Director of Finance for the National Republican Senatorial Committee and a published playwright, the novel tracks the meteoric rise and fall of the young Temple Sachet, the Big Money Babe of the Republican Senate. As a Ray of Hope” intern at the White House, Temple caught Potomac Fever a hopeless, incurable addiction to D.C. Hooked, smart, and desperate for more, Temple navigates her way through the treacherous community of lobbyists making deals for dollars, gossiping staffers, and child-like senators to become the second most powerful fundraiser in America. Now she’s expected to raise $95 million and must find creative ways to get the uber-rich and ultra-eccentric to hand over the cash money green. From the outside her life looks like one fantastic party, but on the inside she’s tired of dating the wrong men and sleeping on the office floor. Luckily, she has an elite cadre of political friends to help keep her sane . . . or does she? When Temple’s own career begins to surpass that of her mentor, Prudence, a rude awakening awaits. But an unexpected betrayal and a major hurricane force Temple to reexamine everything she believes in .

From the Inside Flap:

 Temple Sachet’s got style, smarts, and the party planning gene in her blood. Having grown up in New Orleans, surrounded by the pageantry of Mardi Gras, Temple learned a thing or two about how to turn a fantastic party into a money maker. It’s a skill that pays off big when her gala for the Missouri Opera turns into a Ray of Hope internship at the White House. Within weeks, Temple’s caught Potomac Fever a hopeless, incurable addiction to D.C. for which there is only one cure: a nasty-tasting spoonful of disillusionment .
Temple rises quickly through the ranks of the Republican Party’s fundraising elite, navigating a treacherous community of lobbyists making deals for dollars, gossiping staffers, and child-like senators, to be appointed the highly coveted position of Finance Director for the Republican Senate Campaign Committee. Her every  waking moment is spent convincing the über-rich and ultra eccentric to hand over the cash money green and, in the process, she learns everyone’s secrets. Temple knows which senators can be manipulated by baked goods, which donors are most likely to pass out drunk at  dinners, which chiefs of staff are still in the closet” and, unbelievably, which senators are actually good people, behaving with integrity even if no one is watching. She is envied, adored, respected, feared, and most of all needed as a fundraiser.
From the outside, Temple’s life looks like one fantastic party, but on the inside she’s tired of dating the wrong men and sleeping on the office floor. Her successes are measured in dollars, all of her status is derived from the politicians she knows personally, and all of her friendships stem from her career. But with her entire identity so wrapped up in D.C., can she walk away from it?
Party Favors gives a deliciously witty peek into the secretive world of political fundraising in D.C.  Written by a former Director of Finance for the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the novel explores the very real truth that favor
means you owe, winning won’t save you, and, ultimately, you will be betrayed.
