The book trailer is now out for Robin Brande‘s YA novel Evolution, Me and Other Freaks of Nature. It’s short and to the point.
And finally, I had to take a gander at what Al Roker’s really up to these days. I mean, I’d never really watched an episode of Al’s Book Club. What’re they like? Actually, not so bad. I was rather taken with the interview with Christopher Paul Curtis. The other authors were particularly nice, but I got a feeling they put more effort into Curtis’s appearance.
Most interesting? The fact that there will be a spin-off to Bud, Not Buddy."When I visit schools I’m often asked by young women, "How come you haven’t done a book about a girl?" so my next book from Wendy Lamb Books will be the story of the young woman with whom Bud shares a kiss. I think it will be called Deza Malone.
