September 3, 2009 / schulerbooks

Thought I posted this last week and just found it in drafts. Better late than never.


Schuler Books loves Libba Bray, especially at our Lansing store, where she came for a pizza party to celebrate the release of the third book in the Gemma Doyle Trilogy, The Sweet Far Thing! (Seriously, she is pretty much the coolest, most hilarious author I’ve ever met, and I’m convinced we are long-lost friends from another life.)

While the Gemma Doyle Trilogy was a supernatural, alternative history, romance sort of affair, her newest stand-alone novel Going Bovine (set to release on Sept. 22) is a dark comedy about a boy who has the human form of Mad Cow disease. I know that doesn’t sound particularly funny, but throw in “a death-obsessed, video-gaming dwarf, a yard gnome who just might be the Viking god Balder,” and “a loopy punk angel/possible hallucination with a bad sugar habit,” and you’ve got a game-plan for hilarity. (When I met her I wondered why Libba didn’t write humor, since it pours out of her so effortlessly.)

Well, now there’s another reason to love Libba!  Check out this ridiculously fun video trailer for Going Bovine, and I dare you not to adore her as a super-fun person/author!  I DARE YOU!

Also, you can check out everything Libba at her website, her livejournal, and at the Going Bovine website!

-Whitney, Lansing
