Brooding YA Hero: Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me by Carrie DiRisio and Illustrated by Linnea Gear
October 17th, 2017 from Sky Pony Press
YA Writing Fiction
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.

Broody McHottiepants is a master of all trades (Of course. Why would he be anything less than that? His current hobbies include making bad life choices, shedding manly tears, rescuing clumsy protagonists, and, of course, gazing into everyone's eyes. This is his first book, although he'd like to remind you he's starred in many novels and movies, including your favorite one. He'd also like to remind you to let out that breath you didn't know you were holding. When he's not saving the world from a bleak dystopia, getting crowned Prom King, or falling in a love triangle, he can be found sulking in a corner. You can follow him @BroodingYAHero.
