Author Mad Libs: E.C. Myers
Today's Author Mad Libs guest is E.C. Myers whose book FAIR COIN (which has garnered some very stellar reviews!) hit the shelves this week. I sent E.C. a parts of speech list. He sent back words. This is the result.
Sixteen-year-old Ephraim Scott is _bounced_ when he comes home from school and finds his _sloth_ unconscious at the kitchen _ninja_, clutching a bottle of pills. The reason for her suicide _tricycle_ is even more disturbing: she thought she'd identified Ephraim's _waffle_ at the hospital that day.
Among his dead double's_clowns_, Ephraim finds a _woeful_ coin--a coin that grants wishes when he flips it. With a flick of his _dolphin_, he can turn his alcoholic mother into an _industrious_ parent and catch the eye of the _turducken_ he's liked since second grade. But the coin doesn't always change _chopsticks_ for the better. And a bad flip can destroy other people's _banshees_ as easily as it rebuilds his own.
The coin could _investigate_ Ephraim everything he's ever wanted--if he learns to _zoom_its power before his luck runs out.
Thank you, E.C., for joining in the fun! To learn more about E.C., go here. To purchase FAIR COIN head to Indie Bound, Books a Million, Barnes & Noble, or Amazon.
