Congratulations to my fellow Class of 2k7 member Rosemary Clement Moore for yesterday’s release of PROM DATES FROM HELL! Woo HOO!
Maggie Quinn, Girl reporter. Honors student, newspaper staffer, yearbook photographer. Six weeks from graduation and all she wants to do is get out of Avalon High in one piece. Fate seems to have different plans for her.
High school may be a natural breeding ground for evil, but the scent of fire and brimstone is still a little out of the ordinary. It’s the distinct smell of sulfur that makes Maggie suspect that something’s a bit off. And when realTwilight Zone stuff starts happening to the school’s ruling clique—the athletic elite and the head cheerleader and her minions, all of whom happen to be named Jessica—Maggie realizes it’s up to her to get in touch with her inner Nancy Drew and ferret out who unleashed the ancient evil before all hell breaks loose.
Maggie has always suspected that prom is the work of the devil, but it looks like her attendance will be mandatory. Sometimes a girl’s got to do some pretty undesirable things if she wants to save her town from soul-crushing demons from hell and the cheerleading squad.
Sounds fantastic, Rosemary, and again–congratulations for your release!
Be sure to check out her website and adorable photo! And I love her advice to writers:
“The best way to become a better writer is to write, even if it starts out as crap. Write until it isn’t crap any more. And then keep writing.”
