Posted on Updated on

Congratulations to Kate Bassett on the debut of WORDS AND THEIR MEANINGS!

About the book:

365 days ago, Anna O’Mally stopped writing, caused a death, and stole the identity of a 1970s punk rock poet, but now, family secrets and a new friend make her question if words like life, love, art, and truth can be redefined.

Anna O’Mally doesn’t believe in the five stages of grief. Her way of dealing with death equates to daily bouts of coffin yoga and fake-tattooing Patti Smith quotes onto her arms. Once a talented writer, Anna no longer believes words matter, until shocking discoveries– in the form of origami cranes– force her to redefine family and love.

As Anna goes in search of the truth, she discovers that while every story, every human being, has a last line, it might still be possible to find the words for a new beginning.

WORDS AND THEIR MEANINGS is published by Flux.

About Kate:

Kate Bassett grew up on a healthy dose of dirty brown rivers, loud music, and good poetry. She now lives in northern Michigan with her husband, three kids and one very old dog, and serves as the editor of her small town’s newspaper, where she gets to write about everything from creativity in schools to pet pig obituaries.

About the book:

Sliding Doors meets Sixteen Candles in this irresistibly romantic debut.

Despite what her name might suggest, Heart has zero interest in complicated romance. So when her brilliant plan to go to prom with a group of friends is disrupted by two surprise invites, Heart knows there’s only one drama-free solution: flip a coin.

Heads: The jock. He might spend all night staring at his ex or throw up in the limo, but how bad can her brother’s best friend really be?

Tails: The theater geek…with a secret. What could be better than a guy who shares all Heart’s interests–even if he wants to share all his feelings?

Heart’s simple coin flip has somehow given her the chance to live out both dates. But where her prom night ends up might be the most surprising thing of all.

Ask Again Later is published by HarperCollins.

Congratulations to Varsha Bajaj on the debut of ABBY SPENCER GOES TO BOLLYWOOD !

About the book:

bollywoodAbby Spencer wants a life of excitement!

Well, sort of. Actually, that’s a lie. All Abby really wants is to meet her father. It’s not that she’s ungrateful for what she has – nice mom, adorable grandparents, great friends – but she feels like something’s missing. She’d never tell anyone that.

Abby knows her dad lives in India, but she’s never met him and doesn’t know much else about him. But Abby’s mom realizes it’s time to have the big talk and for Abby to finally meet her father.

Does he want to meet her? Abby’s about to find out that her dad lives a very different life in a different country and she’s going to experience it all, for better or worse. This is what happens when all your wishes come true…

Abby Spencer Goes to Bollywood is published by Whitman, Albert & Company.
