Surely you've all seen that huge banner I've had at the top of my site the last week or two? Well, the winners for the contest were announced and I won a copy of Villain School: Good Curses Evil. I am extremely excited to read this book. I still can't believe that I won. And of course I'll be sharing my thoughts with everyone once I've read it.
So, what's it about?
Rune Drexler, Big Bad Wolf Jr., and Countess Jezebel Dracula are students at Master Dreadthorn's School for Wayward Villains. It's like military school for the children of famous villains; it's where you learn to be bad. But Rune is failing at his villainous studies, so when he lands himself in detention (again), Master Dreadthorn assigns him a Plot. In one week, Rune and his friends must find a henchman, steal a baby, kidnap a princess, and overthrow a kingdom. There's only one problem: Rune's not very evil. In fact, his behavior seems suspiciously heroic. . . .
This hilarious adventure stretches across a fairy tale world where the mistakes of famous villains become valuable lessons for our heroes-er, villains. The mix of familiar characters and a wholly original Plot will delight young readers.
By the way, if anyone is looking for a chance to win an ARC of Sweet Venom by Tera Lynn Childs, Kathleen Peacock is having a giveaway on her website. To get your name in, just tell her who you think would win in a fight: Lucy Lawless or the Old Spice Guy.
Anyway, I just wanted to share the happy news. This has been a totally awesome month and it's only the 9th. There seem to be lots of good books coming out and I am having fun reading and reviewing them. (Psst, Kat... You might want to make some time to, you know, work on your revisions for Moon Dance.) Yes, I'm being kind of bad.
But people seem certain that if you want to write, you should read. So we'll see.
