Today’s Brew: I fixed the creamer problem, and bought a huge box of the Christmas coffee. It’s smooth sailing on Whiskey Tango for a while.
We LOVE JC Lillis at Deadly Ever After. Love. JC came to us on Twitter and I immediately fell in love with her easy, quirky sense of humor. I loved her even more when I saw that her first book, HOW TO REPAIR A MECHANICAL HEART, was two teenage fanboys on tour and discovering their feelings for each other. There’s a whole other side to fandom, I’ve discovered through JC, who had to tell me what “shipping” meant.
If I wasn’t already head over heels for this girl, I have one word for you. Aspic. Yes, the mid-century jello mold that suspended the dinners of a generation. Clan Hutchings and I will spend hours sending each other pins of gross looking retro food. JC goes one better. SHE MAKES IT. And blogs about it.
So JC, I ship you, your books, and your frosted meatloaf. WE WON’T FEEL A THING, a YA contemporary romance with a subplot that could be ripped from talk TV, is coming March 31. This trailer is so well made, even if I haven’t convinced you with the jello molds or the awesome, watch it for the production value.
And now that you’re totally hooked, here’s the blurb:
Seventeen-year-old best friends Rachel and Riley are in forbidden love.
Their situation’s. . .complicated. And their timing couldn’t be worse—in just one month, he leaves for California and she starts college in New York. The absolute last thing they need is a reckless secret-love confession mucking up their perfect plans.
There’s only one logical option: scientific intervention.
Desperate for a quick fix, they sign up for WAVES, an experimental self-help program led by mysterious scientist David A. Kerning. He swears his Forbidden Love Module can turn passion back to safe platonic friendship in “six easy steps.”
But when you arm yourself with an untested program, side effects are unpredictable.
