Save Ze Date - Launch Party Annoucement Type Stuff

Hola, peepul! I have NEWS. Like, if I had bells in the house right now, I would put them on. But I don't. I looked.

No, really. I honestly looked.

So please imagine me capering around my house with imaginary bells on as I tell you a little about the launch events for BAD TASTE IN BOYS.

First, if you're in or near southeast Michigan, you should come to my launch party! I'll be at Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor on July 23rd at 2 PM. There will be lots of zombie related awesomeness, and a hugeola door prize that will be given away to a random person who donates a new children's book to the University of Michigan children's hospital!

Can't make it without inventing a teleporter first? (Trust me, I know the feeling.) You can still participate in my big online launch event called NIGHT OF THE GIVING DEAD. Who says that zombies can't donate to charity? Night of the Giving Dead is a charity auction benefitting the Giving Library at U of M Mott Children's Hospital. They give a book to every sick child, and I think that's totally awesome. Over the next few weeks, I'll tell you a little more about Mott and what it means to me. THERE WILL BE PICTURES OF MY HUSBAND, AND HE'S HOT.

Yes, I just attempted to bribe you.

Anyway, from July 11th through the 25th, you'll be able to bid on a variety of awesome things, from signed NYT bestsellers to some awesomesauce manuscript feedback from agents, authors, and editors. I've got over 80 donations so far, and I'm determined to make it to 100. Have something you'd like to donate? You are awesome. Drop me a note at There will also be a GRAND PRIZE. And free swag. And generalized awesomeness. And zombies.

I'll be telling you more about this over the next few weeks, then I'll be taking a short family vacation, and then it'll be time for boys that taste bad. Or something.

I should probably have some bells by then.

Awesome! It sounds like you're planning on having an epic time. :) Definitely get bells by then!

Yay!!!!! So excited for you! And I will try and make the party at Nicola's Books. Might have to bring the baby meatloaf with me. She's very zombie-like, though - doesn't sleep, makes weird sounds, tries to eat your face - so she'll fit right in!!
