« Nobody loves ghouls? Nobody?
Documenting Our Lurve »
There’s a new review of First Kiss (Then Tell) the fabulous anthology I have a story in. After talking about her favourite stories the reviewer has this to say:
I didn’t love every story in this collection; some were just, “eh,” and some were good but not really my thing (I have a weak stomach, so some of them made me rather nauseous!).
She’s talking about my story! The one that Booklist called “disgusting yet hilarious”. I made the reviewer queasy. Tee hee. She also says the stories range from “funny to sweet and awkward to disgusting“. Disgusting! That’s my story again! I’m so happy.
You must all read the anthology and then let me know whether you think mine is the most disgusting story. I guarantee that it is. I’m so proud.

I, uhh, can’t wait?
I have a weak stomach, too, so (once I read it) I’ll let you know if I was able to handle it.

My bookstore doesn’t have it yet, so I’m making them order it. How dare they not have copies of everything you’ve written?!

I couldn’t even find Magic or Madness in my local Barnes and Noble. Had to make them order it. Grrrr. How dare they is right. (They had four copies of Magic Lessons, though. Go fig.)

No, thank you for writing the review. The disgustingness of my story aside, I think it’s a really wonderful antho and I hope it does as well as it deserves. Not least because it’s raising money for charity.
