Do you like The Fault in Our Stars by John Green? I do. If you didn’t like it or don’t care to read it, this post isn’t for you.
Chances are, when you finished that book, you closed it and cried for an hour. Or your thoughts were, I … can’t … breathe … You may have tweeted something like, “If you text me I can’t talk. I’m too busy de-reddening my eyes.”
Want to know what I thought?
I thought: I’m going to do one better.
So I began drafting a story idea for a teen book that I hope will be the next Fault in Our Stars.
I’ve got a ways to go, but I think you’re going to eat it up.
I want some help from my readers! I want to know if I’m going down the right road. I’m not ready to reveal all of it except that it’s about a girl who falls in love with a boy. But he’s dead, so…
Open up those floodgates and season John Green’s heart – he’s about to eat it.
Don’t get me wrong! I loved The Fault in Our Stars; John Green totally rocked it. But that’s what’s great about books – great stories begets great stories.
So! If you’re interested in following the progress of my teen book, These Great Affects, start by joining my author Facebook page and I’ll be posting hashtags (#TheseGreatAffects) and you can like or respond or help spread the word about this thing.
And let’s face it. I like the attention; it puts me at my writing best, thus you end up with the best book I can possibly write for my readers.
