Today, I have some exciting news about author extraordinaire, L.G. Keltner! First she brought us Self Help 101 or: How I Learned to Take Over the World Through Tolerating My Family (which reminded me of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation).
Then came Self Help 101 or: How To Survive a Bombardment With Minimal Injury (which reminded me of Jackass--not that I actually watched that show, ahem, just heard about it.)
And now, on September 27, L.G. will release the third title in her holiday/humor series, Self Help 101 or: How To Select a Costume to Help You Deal With People. (length: 29K)
Dani Finklemeier is adjusting to life in college and the realities of living away from home for the first time. She’s also learning to deal with the criticism that stems from sharing her writing with the world. Some of the online criticism is even spelled correctly, which somehow makes it worse.
Fortunately, she has a Halloween party, a group of friends, and a supportive boyfriend to distract her from the things that are bothering her. Of course, a holiday celebration wouldn’t be complete without something going wrong. Between an unpleasant confrontation with an infuriating classmate, some shocking costume choices, and a bizarre fraternity stunt, the evening will be anything but dull.
About the Author: L.G. Keltner spends most of her time trying to write while also cleaning up after her crazy but wonderful kids and hanging out with her husband. Her favorite genre of all time is science fiction, and she’s been trying to write novels since the age of six. Needless to say, those earliest attempts weren’t all that good.
Her non-writing hobbies include astronomy and playing Trivial Pursuit.
Keltner's hilarious series has hit Christmas, the Fourth of July, and now Halloween. What holiday do you think L.G. will pick next? Do crazy things happen to you on the holidays?
