Aww, Hell No!   Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together. “But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes? Of course not…” The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again. She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago. Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando. Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships. But neither of the handsome guys is quite what he seems. In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride. Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him. If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL. Boyfriend From Hell is the first book in the Falling Angels Saga from the author of the gruesomely hilarious, Never Slow Dance With A Zombie

On the night of her middle school graduation, Margot Jean Johnson wrote a high school manifesto detailing her goals for what she was sure would be a most excellent high school career. She and her best friend, Sybil, would be popular and, most important, have boyfriends. Three years later they haven’t accomplished a thing!

Then Margot and Sybil arrive at school one day to find that most of the student body has been turned into flesh-eating zombies. When kooky principal Taft asks the girls to coexist with the zombies until the end of the semester, they realize this could be the perfect opportunity to live out their high school dreams. Now all they have to do is stay alive…

Book Reviews

By E Van Lowe

 
 

I have a friend who, a long time ago, while in high school did (what I thought at the time) was the most daring thing.  It was a Saturday evening in the spring. He had a book report due in Monday.  He hadn’t read a book.  Rather than comb his memory for vestiges of the one book he had read back in the seventh grade, he chose a road less travelled.  He made it up.  Not just the book report—he made up the entire book.

I could never do that.  But sometimes it seems when I am reading the review of a book I’ve read or movie I’ve seen that that’s exactly what the reviewer did—they made it up.  They couldn’t have possibly read the same book I read, because there review sounds nothing like the book.  That’s my problem with reviews.  They’re not necessarily accurate.  I find many reviewers adding their own meanings or biases to books and movies.

Last Sunday night I was at the WGA Christmas party.  I met two people there who both gave me their review of the movie War Horse.  They were husband and wife, so I am assuming they saw the movie together, and yet if you didn’t know better you’d swear they were not talking about the same movie.

As a writer I’d like to know that the people reviewing my work actually completed the work, and if they didn’t finish reading it, I’d like them to say so.  No writer enjoys a bad review, but when you read a review of your Martian novel and it sounds like the reviewer is talking about mermaids it can be infuriating.

My novel Boyfriend From Hell has some pretty accurate reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon.  I’ve read good things about the novel’s great pacing, as well as not so good things, like the lack of chemistry between the male and female leads.  In all the reviews, however, good or bad, I felt the reviewer actually read the book. Thank you.

Boyfriend From Hell and Earth Angel are both on sale on Amazon and B&N.  There’s a free sample of Boyfriend From Hell available on my website http://evanlowe.com/ Read it for yourself, form your own opinion, and hopefully you’ll agree with most folks that they are great reads.  By the way, I am going to see War Horse today.
