I Love Being Edumacated...

Hey, Patty:
Just read your review of Edumacation on Goodreads and breathed a huge sigh of relief afterward. Someone likes me, someone really likes me! Well, you like my book, which is 500% better (approximately). I've been seeing a small load of anti-sarcasm sentiments of late, and I feel like I'm bound to become the reluctant figurehead. Unfortunately, I forgot to develop my "thick skin" before becoming a writer. Perhaps I should moisturize more often...or grow a beard? 
Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to read my little book. You rock. 
Jay Clark 

Can I love stuff like this?
I love stuff like this.
I loved this book...it had all the stuff I love in books...school setting, an out of the box teacher and Jay Baker...the boy who had much to say.
So much to say.

Here is a quickie summary from Amazon.

Meet Jay Baker . . . or, as he is not-so-affectionately called by his opponent in the freshman-class presidential election--no comment.

A few random bullet points about Jay:
  • He is stupidly in love with his best friend, cheerleading dynamo Cameo "Appearance" Parnell.
  • He is also trying to score (points) with earthbound tennis-playing goddess Caroline Richardson.
  • He is fighting a losing battle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
  • He rocks a touché array of pop-culture references, jokes, and puns.
  • His family life cookie is about to crumble.
Root for Jay as he exchanges ego-blows with his mortal enemy, gets awkward around his dream girl(s), loses his marbles in a Bermudian love triangle, watches his parents' relationship implode, and, finally, learns to keep it real and be himself(ish).
I am offering the book for a giveaway.
Or rather Jay is...
Thank you, Jay!!!
The book releases on Jan. 31st.
I will edumacate you about this giveaway.
Leave a comment...say hi...nothing major.
