Brooding YA Hero by Carrie Ann DiRisio is a book that I have been looking forward to from the moment that I heard the news! If you have followed along with any of Broody’s tweets, you will know exactly what I mean. I have a feeling that this book will have a lot of humorous moments and lots of fun pokes at some of the tropes that we see in YA. Best of all, it stars a swoon-worthy guy, so I am totally on board for this one!

Publisher: Skypony Press
Publication Date: October 17, 2017
Have you ever wished you could receive a little guidance from your favorite book boyfriend? Ever dreamed of being the Chosen One in a YA novel? Want to know all the secrets of surviving the dreaded plot twist?
Or maybe you're just really confused about what "opal-tinted, luminous cerulean orbs" actually are?
Well, popular Twitter personality @broodingYAhero is here to help as he tackles the final frontier in his media dominance: writing a book. Join Broody McHottiepants as he attempts to pen Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, a "self-help" guide (with activities--you always need activities) that lovingly pokes fun at the YA tropes that we roll our eyes at, but secretly love.
As his nefarious ex, Blondie DeMeani, attempts to thwart him at every turn, Broody overcomes to detail, among other topics, how to choose your genre, how to keep your love interest engaged (while maintaining lead character status), his secret formula for guaranteed love triangle success, and how to make sure you secure that sequel, all while keeping his hair perfectly coiffed and never breaking a sweat.

You’re always a main character, remember? Ignore anyone, and any story, that doesn’t make you feel like one.
