We HEART Lisa Schroeder!!!
That's right-- it's time for another glass of bubbly! Because it's time for our next DEBUT AUTHOR! Lisa Schroeder, come on down!
She's a picture book author, native Oregonian, and experienced strawberry girl. But this week, she's (most of all) our 2k8 debut author of the week!
Although her book was officially released on the 8th, Lisa is still celebrating (and we expect she will be all year!). So please join us in wishing her all the best for her young adult novel in verse, I Heart You, You Haunt Me.
I Heart You, You Haunt Me is the story of fifteen-year-old Ava who is heartbroken over the death of her boyfriend, Jackson. But Jackson's spirit is unwilling to let go just yet, and has rooted himself to Ava's home. At first Ava is thrilled, and she does whatever she can to stay home everyday just to be with him. But she soon realizes that having a ghost for a boyfriend is neither easy nor fulfilling. Ultimately, Ava must choose between the ghostly romance and moving on with her life.
Sound good? Wanna read it? Of course you do!
Visit your local bookstore today, or you can order it on-line HERE.
Thanks for stopping by to wish Lisa well and give her book a happy send-off out into the big, blue world.
Lisa will be reading comments all day, so please let her know you stopped by.
And come back tomorrow, when Lisa will answer some burning questions for us. Or later in the week, when we'll give her the chance to teach us all about novels in verse (Hey, maybe she'll even tell us about her own secret experiences with ghost-boyfriends!)
Now, really-- you can't afford to miss THAT!
