YA ROMANTIC COMEDIES--BRING 'EM ON! READ A SAMPLE OF WHAT I LOVE

I love romantic comedies and am in search to rep more authors who can write them.

Not goofy, silly chic-lit with no underlying heart/intelligence/soul but full-fleshed, make me laugh/cry/yearn/scream ROMANTIC COMEDIES. Contemporary, mystery, paranormal, historical, scifi, ROMANTIC COMEDIES...doesn't matter---it is about characters--soul-searching, groin-yearning, heart thumping, heart breaking, fast paced, laugh out loud, cry out loud, make me want to be your character ROMANCE!

BUT---of course who I rep comes down to subjective taste...so what type of voice/writing/characters do I love? Read the 1st chapter  of Robin Mellom's  DITCHED pubbing from Hyperion-Disney on Jan 10th and find out what I think will be one of the best YA romantic comedies of 2012.


What People Are Saying


Zany comedy dominates this romp through the prom night from Hell... The author displays a well-developed touch for the absurd... For readers with a funny bone that needs a tingle, this should hit the spot.  ~Kirkus

It's like The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, and Sixteen Candles all rolled into one...four outrageous friends bond in an unlikely way...and an ending that will blow you away. This book is brilliant.  ~myguiltyobsession.blogspot

In this fast, fun ride you will alternate between laughing, groaning, gasping in horror, and shaking your fist, and then back to laughing again. Read this book, friends. You will plow through it and enjoy every minute of it.  ~karlaellenbach-lastword.blogspot

Think John Hughes on paper. This is one of my favorite reads of the year...[it's] Pretty in Pink meets The Hangover meets Say Anything. DITCHED must be added to your "I must read this" pile. It is worth every single page.  ~bookemadventures.blogspot


Did you click on Read the 1st chapter  of Robin Mellom's  DITCHED and read it? What'cha think?
