October Lasts Forever
By Scott Nicholson
In an earlier blog tour stop, I talked about how I originally came up with the secret family pen name, because I thought people who liked my young-adult paranormal series might not try the books if they thought I as a “horror writer.” I can assure you, I’m not very horrible, and I quickly decided that I was just fine being L.C. Glazebrook and Scott Nicholson rolled into one. The books will keep the Glazebrook name, at least for a while, but having a series adds a whole new set of challenges.
But also a lot of opportunities for fun. The important thing to me is that I love the two main characters, teen witch Crystal and her dead best friend Bone. Crystal is your typical high school drop-out, overcoming the depression that set in when Bone was killed by a UPS van at age 16. Now she’s trying to get her GED and go to community college and deal with her boyfriend Pettigrew, who is a little too serious too fast.
Well, except there’s that part where she has to guard the portal to the afterlife.
In just one book, there are already enough complications to write a dozen books easily. Does Pettigrew really love Crystal or is it one of Momma’s magic spells? What does Bone do about the sixth-grade dead boy who’s crushing on her? How does Crystal abandon Momma to a life in the trailer park, turning her back on generations of family tradition? And why the heck does the Judge love chocolate so much?
Which of these covers do you like best for Book #2, “Dead & Unfriended,” due out early next year?
