If you’re a regular reader of the blog, you’ve likely already been gearing up for the release this fall of Bad Hair Day, the sequel to Carrie Harris‘ debut novel Bad Taste in Boys. Bad Hair Day does for werewolves what Bad Taste in Boys did for zombies, so yeah, you know it’s going to be good. Well, if you think that’s all Carrie has cooked up for you this Halloween season, you don’t know the half of it. Introducing: Bad Yeti!
Set in the world of BAD TASTE IN BOYS and BAD HAIR DAY, this digital story is the perfect introduction into the funny high school world of Carrie Harris, where humor meets horror (and sometimes zombies, werewolves, yetis, and yes, even unicorns).
Jonah Grable hasn’t minded living in the shadow of his older, zombie fighting sister Kate, but this weekend he’s definitely raising his profile. A weekend of epic epicness — waving swords and flirting with girls in elf ears at his LARP club event — is totally up Jonah’s alley. But when his alter ego, Sir Talatien Maguirier, Nightdark Clanlord, comes face to face with a real, live Yeti, Jonah — or, rather, Tal — has to take matters into his own hands. So he sets off with gamer goddess Lady Amethyst, brown-eyed Europa, and Calamity, a braid-wearing barbarian in fur into the great unknown on a search for yeti-related awesomeness…
Gamer geeks with swords in the woods? You’re speaking my language. (Remember, I worked at a renaissance faire. There are pictures.)
Carrie’s running a great contest on her blog to win a special sneak peak of Bad Yeti. All you have to do is tweet/post/blog/tumblr/etc. a sentence including the words “Bad Yeti” with a link to her post, and submit that link on her site. It’s that easy! And if you don’t win, it’s still only a $2.99 e-book! What a bargain!
