WASTE OF SPACE is my new book! It is coming out in July and sweet sassy molassy am I excited about it. It’s got everything. Space. Reality television. Teenagers. New Mexico. Hungry Hungry Hippos. Dogs on inflatable pool floats. Astronaut ice cream. Hot tubs. The International House of Pancakes. Ikea furniture. A pig named Colonel Bacon.
Still not sold? Here’s the synopsis:
Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that’s the premise for the out-of-this-world reality show Waste of Space. The young cast members are over-the-top, ready to fall to pieces at the drop of a space helmet, and completely ignorant of the fact that the production will be fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state of the art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show.
Waste of Space is a tremendous success. Millions of people tune in. Ratings are through the roof.
And then something goes wrong.
And just as the cast members start to suspect something has gone wrong…
And just as the viewers start to know that something has gone wrong . . .
All communication is severed.
Now no one can tell what’s real and what’s fake, instability and paranoia loom large, and the only way for the cast to figure out what’s going on is for them to work together. The kids stumble closer to the truth, dread seeping into every corner of the ship as they find out what happens when a reality show loses its grip on reality.
This puppy is officially available for pre-order, which means that it’s time to hold a little giveaway. That means free stuff! Specifically, a bookmark, a magnet, AND something very cool that ONLY those who pre-order the book will get: a 4″x6″ print of my original hand-drawn sketch of the spaceship’s schematics.
