EXCITING News, At Least To Me

Soooo. I'm taking a vacay after Easter dinner on Sunday, which means that you'll be getting a few posts from me on and off next week but not a lot. That's okay, though, because it means I get to leave you basking in my Exciting News.

You know what that means? Excitement. And news.

Yeah, I'm the mistress of the obvious, alright.

Anyway, you all know that I wrote a book, right? And said book will be published by Delacorte NEXT YEAR. That's right! You can have some zombie awesomeness all your own! I'll even sign it for you, you kewl blog reading person, you! The book was called NO PAIN, NO BRAIN. And if you picked up on the past tense there, you are very observant, grasshopper. Now go try and catch a fly with some chopsticks. I'll wait...

Yeah, I can't do that either. I've tried. Really.

As much as I love NPNB as a title, and as much as I will miss it, I'm REALLY REALLY excited to announce my new title. It's the perfect choice for a love story. Kinda. With zombies.

BAD TASTE IN BOYS


You likey? Me likey. A LOT.

It'll get a teen girl aud better, prolly, but I loved No Pain, No Brain and had actually stewed over how I would ever come up with such a clever, memorable title myself.

I wonder if it won't alienate boy readers. I preferred No Pain, No Brain, myself. Oh well. Guess we just have to trust the professionals on this one.

Nice . . .

Of course you'll have to fit a shuriken somewhere in the cover**

Good title... it is my understanding that the bad taste comes from the adrenalin in their blood just before you get them.... it is better to catch them off guard and make a quick kill... the brain is far more tender that way...

Amy Holder said...

Love, love, LOVE the new title! Did I mention that I LOVE your new title?! :)

K.C. Shaw said...

I liked the old title--but golly, that new one is actually hysterically good too.

Enjoy your time off!

Whirlochre said...

Given the sorry state of many of today's boys, I'd say bad is pretty good going.

As is your progress.

Wahey!
