That’s right, Day 8! Because “eight days a week”…we love comedy!
This is it, you guys! Your last chance to stuff your Kindle with the bargains from Participating Books list – some of them will go right back to their regular prices when the clock strikes twelve.
This has been a whirlwind – and it will continue tomorrow with 2016 #ComedyBookWeek Blogger Awards. All of our bloggers deserve awards for being such active, creative, intelligent, and attractive people. Alas, only three will get one of these totally awesome badges:
If you think there should be more awards, come back in a few days for the report on how the event performed, with your suggestions on how to make it even better. This event was made for lovers of the funny, and we look to you, readers, for input.
What’s not to love in a funny book? The next one has all the ingredients of a classic romcom – a girl, a guy, and plenty of misunderstandings. Read BRMaycock’s Book Blog review of Maid for Love by Victoria Van Tiem to learn more.
Maid for Love is a romcom about a girl with big plans – namely to avoid eviction or admitting that she’s blown through Dad’s investment. Nothing a little lying couldn’t fix, right? Check out this “Maid in Manhattan” meets “Bridget Jones Diary”funny story and fall in love.
And when the love finally fades? Pick up the next book to learn what to do – it attracted the attention of not one, but two bloggers today: read C (the happy meerkat) review and Ana Spoke’s review of Beaver vs. Beaver and interview with the author, Portia Porter to see why.
Beaver vs. Beaver is a quintessential legal comedy with a biting wit, endearing characters, and a story that will leave you reeling. It has been called “Intelligent and Hilarious!” and is sure to make you “learn something through the laughter.”
For more disbelieving face-palming, read Al Lane’s Dirty Dozen interview with Geoff Le Pard, or the author’s book Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle.
Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle is a tale of an unraveling life of one Harry Spittle, aged nineteen. Harry is home from university, expecting to be bored rigid. Instead, he has to deal with the appearance of an old family friend, his psychopathic son, and predatory wife. If that’s not bad enough, his parents’ marriage implodes, and things go from bad to worse, and then to worst. Don’t miss this “Hilarious, Complex, and Sophisticated” story that has been compared to Adrian Mole, but “more sophisticated and complex.”
The next event is quite a bundle deal: get to know not one, but FOUR of our authors as they talk about humorous books, writing comedy, and all things funny. Join Living the Laughter: Live Facebook Event with Author Q and A’s.
