For my stop on the Retro Geeks tour I have a cute excerpt for you and a giveaway 🙂 Enjoy and good luck
Retro Geeks is a Short on Time Books for Teens, fast-paced and fun novels for readers on the go.
Remember when it wasn’t cool to be a geek? That’s so yesterday! Retro Geeks, chronicles the (mis)adventures of two self-proclaimed geek girls, Molly and Ally, as they attempt to land super-hot dates for their senior prom. The 80s obsessed BFFs attempt a variety of date-finding schemes, including spying on the popular girls for the 411 on fitting in, in their quest for top-tier prom dates.
Elisa Coster was the school’s Queen of Mean. Every girl wanted to be her and every guy wanted to date her. She always strode down the hallway like she owned the school, surrounded by an entourage of top-tier teens. Elisa’s bestie, Megan Monroe, was always by her side.
As Elisa and her posse made their way to homeroom, an androgynous troll-like girl, Kimmie Kendall, trotted up to Elisa holding a stack of flyers. Kimmie gave Elisa a huge grin.
“I’ve been handing out flyers all morning,” Kimmie said. “Just like you asked.”
Elisa took a deep breath, glanced at her watch then addressed Kimmie. “And your point is?”
Kimmie pushed on. “You said I could sit with you at lunch one day if I handed out Caribbean Pirates prom theme flyers to every student in the school.”
“Oh, yeah, right.” Elisa gave Megan a sly hell-will-freeze-over-before-she’ll-sit-with-us smile.
“Only 258 flyers to go!” Kimmie stated enthusiastically.
“You go, girlfriend,” Elisa said with mock enthusiasm then rolled her eyes for Megan’s benefit.
“Maybe I’ll be able to sit at your table this week.”
Megan whispered to Elisa, “And maybe she’ll wake up and be something other than hideous.”
Elisa did her best to hold back laughter but Kimmie was oblivious. Her desire to fit in overshadowed every bit of common sense she possessed.
Kimmie embraced her flyers. “I’d better get back to work,” she chirped then darted away.
“What a loser,” Megan said when Kimmie was out of earshot.
“I know, right,” said Elisa. “But at least we’re getting the flyers passed out. We’ll ignore her again next week.”
I have an ebook to giveaway to someone today. Just fill out out the rafflecopter below.
