2nd draft of Bridge cover copy
this, i think, is an improvement over yesterday’s first draft, which sounded a little clunky to me when i read it out loud. whaddya think, peeps? —— Logan is barely seventeen, and barely dead. To find eternal rest, the ghost punk rocker must make peace with his brother Mickey, before his guilt over Logan’s death drives him to suicide. Krista sees ghosts everywhere, but never...

De-kilting scene at last!
jerismithready: During Zachary’s second round of the YA Crush Tournament, I wrote a fun little scene on the fly depicting his and Aura’s adventurous Senior Prom night. (Kidnappings! Fight scenes! What’s under the kilt!) For every 100 votes he received, I added 100 words—ultimately a lot more—and I promised that if he won, the kilt was coming off. He didn’t win, but I decided to write the...
