To celebrate the launch of NERVE by Jeanne Ryan, the EMU’s Debuts (the group of kidlit debut authors I blog with) challenged the Friday the Thirteeners (a group of YA authors debuting in 2013) to a dare-off.
The EMUs, for example have an interpretive dance about dead chickens, a romantic ode to a doorknob, the world’s most painful conference critique section, and even yours truly stuffing her gullet while reading from MATILDA. 🙂 (Happy belated birthday, Mr. Dahl!)
And The Thirteeners, for example, have a novel scene performed by condiments, an all-original movie trailer in which Bella Swan hooks up with The Count (yes, that Count, from Sesame Street), and the funniest story I have ever heard from the perspective of a carrot.
