In completely unrelated news, we are having the most amazing lightning storm in Arizona right now. It’s like a strobe light outside. And yet I couldn’t convince any of my family to get out of bed and go sit outside on the wet lawn and watch it. Some people are completely lacking in spontaneity. Okay, so my pants are now all wet, so I’m going to be short about this.
Erasing Time is coming out August 28th. It’s awesome. Go buy several copies, because hey, you’ve got to get your parents/daughters/ friends something for their birthday/Christmas/ graduation/shower gift.
And it’s got a cool cover.
I’m giving books away every day until I make a dent on the ones in my closet (or until I get hit by lightning). Leave a comment about what you would like to be famous for. Followers get an extra chance. People who tweet/blog about the giveaway get an extra chance too. You can still enter if you’ve already won. Random.org might like you twice.
Tonight it will be Fame, Glory, and Other Things On My To Do List. (Okay, I know it has a cheesy pink cover, but it’s still one of my funniest, especially if you’ve ever seen West Side Story.)
A PC school principal turns West Side Story into a comedy of errors.
Sixteen year-old Jessica dreams of Hollywood fame, and when Jordan moves into her small town, she dreams of him too. He’s a movie star’s son, and hey, he’s gorgeous to boot. Jordan has always wanted to get out from the shadow cast by his superstar father, but now that he and his mother have moved so far away from LA, how can he get his divorced parents back together? Jessica convinces Jordan the way to get his father to come for a long visit is to be a part of the school play. And if she’s “discovered” in the process, all the better. Things go wrong when she lets Jordan’s secret identity slip, and grow even more disastrous when the principal tries to change West Side Story into a gangfree, violence-free, politically correct production.
In the same romantic and sharply witty spirit of Life, Love, and the Pursuit of Free Throws, Janette Rallison delivers another comic gem that teen readers are sure to love.
