Saturday, September 8

Promo week!

Yay, I have a new book out! Yay, I have a new book out! Well, sort of. Beyond Cool--the sequel to I Was a Teenage Popsicle (but it can totally be read as a standalone)--has been out since August 7th. However, I waited to be all festive about it (i.e. have my launch/signing party, etc.) till everybody was back from their summer vacations! So for anybody who's in the Toronto area in the next few weeks, here are the dates to remember:

Sunday, September 16th, Launch/signing party, Yonge-Eglinton Indigo bookstore, 2:30 p.m.

Sunday, September 30th, reading and signing, The Word on the Street festival, Queen's Park, Toronto, Young Adult Marquee, 2:30 p.m.

Online, I'm part of the Girls Cyber Circuit now, so look for fabu YA authors like Lauren Barnholdt and e.lockhart--to name only two--blogging about Beyond Cool over the next month!

I'm a tad nervous about that second gig--the one involving the reading. I still freak out before readings. And I'm supposed to read for 20 minutes! Am I the only one who think that sounds like an eternity? And then there's a question-answer session! Tips from practiced speakers--authors or school debaters--are much appreciated!

So I guess, since this is a promo post, I should tell those of you who don't know what Beyond Cool is about, what, erm, it's about. Well, like I Was a Teenage Popsicle, BC is a super cool (says girlslife.com!) mix of teen lit, sci-fi, action-adventure, comedy, and romance, featuring cryonically preserved and recently (well, ten years from now) 'thawed' Venice Beach teen, Floe Ryan.

In I Was a Teenage Popsicle, Floe found herself living with her younger, now older (gulp) sister and singlehandedly (well, almost) saved the cryonics center (where her parents were still, um, chilling) from being shut down by the anti-cryonicists. Beyond Cool opens with Floe back in her beloved Venice Beach with her parents, but now she finds out the human popsicles all have immune system deficiencies...and the one doctor who can solve the problem has gone AWOL! Guess who goes into action mode once again (while trying to master hovercar driving and hang onto her hot new boyfriend)?

Enjoy!

I have it! I've read it! I love it! :)

Good luck with the reading, Bev. Yes, 20 minutes sounds like an eternity to me, too. But then, I have a fear of public speaking so one minute sounds like an eternity. You'll do great! Wish I could be there to cheer you on. But I'll be sending cyber-cheers!!!
