Getting Personal: Boneless Parody, Cassie's Cover and Express Yourself Meme

Whoo March has been quite a month. Next week Tuesday will start the A-Z Challenge and I haven't finished all my posts yet. But I will survive and I know readers will enjoy what I have to offer.

Now unto a little surprise. I dropped a hint to the author in a comment but now I'm ready to share with you all. I have decided to do my first parody! Yay! Of a book by an author I know online/blog. What? You say, I can imagine authors who chat with me or blog back and forth looking at each other or pointing at themselves. The lucky winner is....read the summary and guess.

From the truly weird mind of Sheena-kay Graham.

Seriously this lady is super weird in her head. Don't let that smiling face fool you.

Printer Rose is a typical teenager who wishes to become popular. Her family line were all popular in pre-school straight through University but she has fallen short and no one is more disappointed than her mother and older twin brothers. One day she comes across a potion in the basement of her father's mistress house. She has no idea why she is there or how she got the address but decides to feed it to the lady's cat. The cat turns into a sexy female and runs off. Angry about her missing cat the mistress curses Printer to become boneless and leaves with no explanation of how she is a witch in the first place. Or how she knew Printer was even there. Magic perhaps, or total lack of logic. Anyway, Printer starts noticing changes in her body that eventually leads to an embarrassing incident that gets caught on camera and uploaded to Youtube. But instead of becoming a social pariah she gains instant fame. 

Yet things don't go as expected when it turns out those who become popular do so at a dastardly price and Printer becoming popular without paying the fee will bring out an ancient evil so frightening that Don King's hair looks like a perfect candidate to model a conditioner for well....models. Can Printer figure out a way to save herself and stop this evil? Where did the creepy guy who has a crush on her but looks like Nosferatu come from? Does this crazy story have a point? Why does something else keep popping up? Secrets are one thing, LSD laced story lines are another. Printer will have to navigate through it all and also find the mistress's cat now turned sexy female pin up model with African American security who rap at her so hard she can't grab the transformed cat back without getting better rhymes. Plus her curse is getting worse and milk won't hold off the final result forever. Will Printer ever go back to how things used to be? Uh no, this is a parody not a romance novel. Sorry romance but you kinda.... So....Printer has to fix things by destroying an ancient evil, getting back a witch's cat who's now a woman, deal with jealousy and rants from her family, an ugly stalker boyfriend never gonna be and anything else that pops up in this insane story that no asylum can contain. Seriously, it got pushed out the door by the doctors. Freedom! Ahem, I mean stay tuned.

Boneless, a parody that will make you very aware that you are indeed part Skeletor. I mean skeleton!

So what did you guys think. Oh right, this is a parody of Moonless by Crystal Collier. And yes a lot of stuff popped up in that book too. And Alexia could be an annoying nosy busy body at times. But hey she got to be sexy and chased by evil....and meet a guy who has a psycho girl who wants him, bad. Of course it's also set in the past. Mine is modern day...bet you didn't get that when Youtube was mentioned. No idea when I'll actually complete this but I got the idea of parodying her novel because of all the crazy nonsense that sometimes took place. I gave it a great review and it is a really good book but seriously....it could be six different novels. Loads of plot....story...plenty of plot. Okay I'll stop now.

Cassie Mae's Latest Cover

Now to reveal Cassie Mae's Cover for The Real Thing. Better late than....just enjoy the sexy cover and congrats Cas. Seriously I mean Castiel from Supernatural has done well fighting evil and evading capture this season. Oh right and Cassie for her latest cover reveal. Awkward.


Pre-Order: AmazonBarnes and Noble

Visit Cassie: Blog, Goodreads
Eric Matua has one friend—his best friend and childhood sweetheart, who needs a place to stay for the summer. Mia Johnson has thousands of friends—who live in her computer. Along with her email chats and Facebook notifications, Mia also devours romance novels, spending countless hours with fictional characters, dreaming of her own Romeo to sweep her off her feet. When she starts receiving supersweet messages from a stranger who thinks she’s someone else, Mia begins to believe that real love is possible outside her virtual world.
When the two friends become roommates, Mia finds herself falling harder than she ever thought she could. But Eric keeps his desires locked away, unsure of himself and his ability to give his best friend what she deserves in a boyfriend. As her advances are continually spurned, Mia splits her time between Eric and her computer. But she soon realizes she’s about to lose the only real thing she’s ever had.

About Cassie Mae :)

Cassie Mae is a nerd to the core from Utah, who likes to write about other nerds who find love. She’s the author of the Amazon Bestsellers REASONS I FELL FOR THE FUNNY FAT FRIEND and HOW TO DATE A NERD, and is the debut author for the Random House FLIRT line with her New Adult novels FRIDAY NIGHT ALIBI and SWITCHED. She spends time with her angel children and perfect husband who fan her and feed her grapes while she clacks away on the keyboard. Then she wakes up from that dream world and manages to get a few words on the computer while the house explodes around her. When she’s not writing, she’s spending time with the youth in her community as a volleyball and basketball coach, or searching the house desperately for chocolate.




Wow that cover is hot. Congrats Cassie!

Express Yourself Meme

Poor thing, at the bottom of so much action but no one forgot about you. Well, I didn't and Friday is a book review and only the Celebrate Meme gets to share in the spotlight. Sorry dear memie. But you get to shine now! Don't give me the finger! Ugh, moving on.

Question: Name one favourite character you have read or written.

Read: Carlisle from The Twilight Series. In the final movie when something sort of happened but didn't, my feelings were written on Esme's face. I mean Carlisle is a wonderful soul who brought together a family of loving vampires and if it weren't for him in truth....there would be no Twilight. Think about that...Edward and ahem Bella Swan Cullen. Just saying.

Written: Circa from Circa. I still hope to shop this novel to agents in 2015/2016. I am just taken by the honest attempt of a girl turned program then becomes human again through a freak accident.

P.S.: Hold up, how come in the Boneless parody summary the father has a mistress but no further mention of him is made? Weird.

  1. Not to be funny, but I think the parody and what you said about Moonless was mean(er than you intended).

    After all, you are entitled to the opinion you shared in the review, and I respect you for that, but I have to say that this feels taken too far.

    Sorry if this hurts your feelings, but I couldn't call myself a friend to either of you if I didn't say it like it is.

    1. Well you're entitled to your opinion Misha. Personally I think events have made you a tad delicate. Don't worry I'm not hurt.

  2. For her reference to Don King's hair alone, I adore Sheena-Kay's weirdness.

    And Cassie Mae is on fire. Go, Cassie.

    PS I don't know if we've met yet, Queen. Great to (re)meet you here.

    Cheers,
