Readers, I’m honored to be sharing this post with you, because this cover reveal has a unique, special story behind it. PROJECT: BOY NEXT DOOR is a posthumous novel. Lisa passed away from cancer in February of 2011. More about her life and death, and how much she loved her work, can be found here. Lisa’s friends and fellow writers are pulling together to promote her last book, and I’m honored to be part of that effort.
What’s the story about?
Being the son of a mega-famous mogul isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, which is why super-smart but socially awkward teen Melvin Pepper wants to try something new: anonymity. To attend a regular high school, get a normal job, meet real people. A break from the pressure and facade that come with crazy wealth and a world-renowned last name.
But Mel quickly realizes that being Mike, his alter ego, isn’t as easy as he’d assumed. He gradually makes friends at work and school and becomes involved in the radio club, plus navigates the rocky waters of first crushes and first kisses. However, he discovers someone out there is on to his secret and is threatening to expose it.
And that’s not all. One of Mel’s new work friends is hiding a dark secret of her own, and Mel feels helpless to make things better for her. He struggles with juggling two very different identities, balancing jealous old friends and nosy new ones. Yup, Mel’s in way over his head…and the only chance he has to make everything right is to be true to himself.
Where can I see more?
Once released, BOY NEXT DOOR will be available on Amazon and B&N.
