Tonight while manning the booth at this trade show, I tried to write in an email, “I want to have all my ducks in a row,” but instead accidentally typed, “I want to have all my dicks in a row,” soooooooooo it’s been a long day.
Celeste Price is a sexy, attractive 26-year-old, 8th-grade teacher with a perfect body, married to a wealthy man who adores her. She drives a little red Corvette. She is living the dream, though there is a catch—she is a remorseless pedophile, intensely, obsessively attracted to 14-year old boys. Celeste uses her classroom as her hunting ground and in short order, seduces young Jack Patrick, one of her students, using her intelligence and physical assets to keep him under her control. Her desires, though, offer diminishing returns because 14 doesn’t last forever and neither does 26.
Did you guys read this interview? Did you guys read this BOOK? (You probably haven’t read this book yet since it doesn’t go on sale till next Tuesday, but still.) It is fucked up and horrifying and funny and an expertly guided journey into the mind of a sociopathic pedophile, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
WHAT WE THINK YA MARKETING DOES
This one goes out to my girls in YA marketing. I love you all, but still harbor my suspicions.
The Ocean at the End of the Lane — I read a little from the opening here. (Bonus! Additional beard.)
Not gonna shut up about this book until it’s out and you all read it because I read it in October and I still can’t get it out of my mind.
Whovians, rejoice! We’re THRILLED to finally share with you the stunning cover for our upcoming book, Doctor Who: The Vault, which goes on sale October 29th! The Vault is the ultimate, official, visual celebration of 50 years of the BBC cult hit Doctor Who filled with unseen and iconic material, photos, artwork, and production papers from the previously untapped BBC archive as well as from private collections.
We at Harper Design are all such huge fans of the show. We’re really excited about this project and can’t wait to share more about it as we get closer to onsale!
Can I tell you all how excited I am that my company is publishing this beautiful, beautiful book? When fandom and work collide…
I don’t know what is going to happen to print publishing. People in publishing take publishing very seriously, probably because in order to get their jobs, they had to kill a lot of good, creative people who did not take publishing very seriously.
Miracle, babe, shhhhhh about all the people I killed to get this job!
(But really you should go read the whole thing.)
