Ugh and Yipee!!!


It’s one of those days. I woke up to a computer that wouldn’t start and turns out the motherboard is shot and I had to buy a whole new one. For reals. This came right after the news that oldest needed buckets of money for his college text books, and the youngest… Lord don’t get me started. It’s not his fault, all school related stuff, but still…

I’m a successful author, money, please. It grows on trees. :-) I’m telling the universe this so that when I wake up tomorrow there is a money tree in the backyard. I’ll let you know if it works. ;-)

Anyhoooo…. I’ve been whining enough since the weekend so I say let’s make this happy day. One of my best buds, Rosemary Clement Moore has a new book out, Hell Week. I read it two years ago when she was working on the manuscript and it friggin’ rocks. I would say that even if she wasn’t my friend. I love this book, and don’t tell her, even more than the first. And no, you don’t have to read the first to enjoy the second. I’m putting all the relevant info down here so you can check it out, and a link so you can read a little of it. I don’t lie, it really is a fantastic book! Clever, clever girl that Rosemary. Oh, and you don’t have to be a “young” adult to enjoy. Us gowed ups, as my son used to call us, like it too!

HELL WEEK, by Rosemary Clement-Moore, sequel to the award winning PROM
DATES FROM HELL, comes out today, Tuesday, August 26th!

College Freshman Maggie goes undercover to write an article about
sorority rush for the newspaper, and gets more than she bargained for
when she pledges a group of girls with supernaturally suspicious good
luck. She has to use her wonky psychic abilities to solve the mystery
and shut down the Sigma Alpha Xis before they make her stay on Greek
Row permanent when Hell Week rolls around.

Here’s what people are saying about the second book in the Maggie
Quinn: Girl vs. Evil Series:

“When you need a Buffy fix, grab a copy of Hell Week. From danger to
humor, romance to mystery, this book has it covered!”
–Melissa Marr, author of the bestselling Wicked Lovely.

“Maggie’s snarky humor and quirky personality keeps this novel’s first
half light, but the second takes a dark, page-turning twist.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“The first book was a great start, and this installment is top-notch
fun and a satisfying follow-up for older teens. Great dialogue and
smart, interesting relationships that grow and change make both books
a joy to read.”

And if you’re in the Dallas Fort Worth Area, come to the book release
party and signing on Saturday, August 30! (Hurst Barnes and Noble,
from 2-4 PM)

  1. I’m sorry to hear about your computer. I’ve recently suffered the same loss.

    *crosses fingers* I hope you do wake up to find a money tree in your backyard. I’m keeping watch but so far it hasn’t shown up in my yard yet.

    The book sounds interesting I’ll definitely keep a look out for it in my neck of the woods.

  2. Aw. Thank you. And it’s okay if you think this one is EVEN BETTER than the first. I do, too. I think each of your books is better than the last–I think that’s something writers should strive for.

    And if that money tree appears, I want a cutting to transplant to my yard. :-) *hugs*

  3. Hell week sounds cool!
    And lucky for me i can order it in the Netherlands. Now i only have to find the first book… i can’t order that one here, wish me luck :)

    greets Teresa
