Where's Winona?

What if Angie Everhart and Kate Mara had a baby with someone really smart and funny who sits in her office chair like a pretzel? (Seriously--torques her leg all the way around.) I mean, aside from problems with the space/time continuum and actual science-y stuff, you’d get my friend slash colleague, Abbey. Wanna meet her? ‘Cause she just launched a blog and it’s rad. Totally different and fun and pink, a fabulous read, if I do say so myself. In her own words:

Action, intrigue, hot dudes with rippling abs. What more do you want?

I’ve got huge news—I’ve finally launched my blovel! A blovel (in case I haven’t blabbed your ear off about it yet) is a novel that’s posted on a blog, which means:

A) It’s free.

B) You can read it at work and pretend like you’re working.

C) It has pictures. Woohoo!

Think of it as an interactive ebook. There are pics, audio, and the whole thing happens in real time. Every blog post is written by the main character. Readers can make comments to her in the comment section, and other characters in the story will be also commenting there so you’ll get their side of the story as well. You’ve never read anything like this before. It’s going to be off the hook!

Speaking of the hook…

This particular blovel is the heartwarming story of a teenage girl named Agnes who is forced into searching for a missing popstar named Winona Darling in order to win the heart of the boy she loves. That is the whole reason she has started this blog. The problem is the boy is kind of douchey and Winona, it turns out, might have been murdered. On top of that Agnes also has some serious competition—former-child-star-turned-celebrity-blogger Tyler Dash. Yes, he’s good-looking if you’re into tan, Venice Beach types with abs like metal siding. But Agnes is not. She’s looking for a Harvard man, and if the only thing that stands between her and summering in Hamptons is a rat-bastard-celebrity-blogger then that dirty hippy is going to go down—hard.

Did I mention, there are also pictures?

If you know of anyone else who enjoys young adult fiction, mystery fiction, humorous fiction, vampire fiction,* gay BFFs in fiction, pug fiction, reality shows, Angela Lansbury, discussing food allergies at length, cheesecake, or publishing, then please forward their way.

I’ll be posting daily Monday through Friday. If you don’t get to it right away just go to, click the Start button star in the left hand corner and it’ll take you right to the beginning.


*Okay so there’s no vampires per se but it does take place in Hollywood, which is filled with bloodsuckers so in that way it qualifies.

Did I not tell you she’s rad?

So what are you doing still reading this? I've got nothing of my own to say today. Check out You can thank me later.
