I hardly ever do book trailer reveals, but OH HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS!! This is the best book trailer I’ve EVER SEEN! (And I’m not just sayin’ that). If this trailer doesn’t turn you into a Gina Damico fan, I don’t know what will. Gina’s upcoming book, Hellhole, hits shelves in January, but today you can see her ridiculous, over-the-top, snack-filled, hysterically funny video for yourself! You may know Gina’s name from her Croak books:
I have to admit I haven’t read these books yet—you know how it is being a blogger, sometimes the only books you read are the books you receive for review. But I’ve been following Gina’s blog for a couple of years now, and she’s super cool and extremely funny. I’m anxious (especially after watching this video!) to check out her upcoming book, Hellhole, which releases on January 6 2015:
Geeky, squeaky-clean Max Kilgore only has one dirty habit: digging for fossils. One day, to his horror, his shovel strikes not upon a dinosaur bone, but a pit to hell—and out of it comes a devil. Specifically, the kind of devil who eats a lot of junk food, watches a lot of reality television, plays a lot of video games, and refuses to leave Max’s basement. But evil is still evil, no matter what form it takes. And Max has to find a way to comply with the demands of the big red menace, lest he lay waste to everyone and everything Max cares about.
With the help of Lore, a former goth girl who knows a thing or two about the dark side, Max goes in search of a new abode for his unwanted guest. Finding a place where he can reside in luciferian luxury isn’t easy, but Max has strong motivation: his mother, whose terminal illness the devil promises to cure if Max gives him what he wants. Lore has her doubts about making a deal with the devil, but Max will stop at nothing to save his mom. And pretty soon, he’s doing things the good kid he once was would never dream of doing. Clearly, hanging around with a devil is a bad influence. But how can Max get rid of the guy without incurring the wrath of hell?
For all you bloggers out there, Hellhole is available for request on NetGalley right now, so if this sounds like something you’d like to review, check it out! And now, the trailer! Which I know is the reason you came here today:-)
I grew up under four feet of snow in Syracuse, New York. I received a degree in theater and sociology from Boston College, and I have since worked as a tour guide, transcriptionist, theater house manager, scenic artist, movie extra, office troll, retail monkey, yarn hawker and breadmonger. I am the author of the grim-reapers-gone-wild books of the Croak trilogy (Croak, Scorch, and Rogue), published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and the upcoming Hellhole (January 2015). I live in Western Massachusetts with my husband, two cats, one dog, and while I have never visited hell in person, I have spent countless waking hours at the Albany Regional Bus Terminal, which is pretty darn close.
Now please excuse me while I go get a snack…
