• From the book...

    I can't afford to let myself feel good, to let my guard down, to think for a single moment that I belong.

    Because I don't.

Happy Goth Girl Rising Day!

The book has been slowly making its way into stores for a couple of weeks now, but today is the official publication day for Goth Girl Rising! Which means that the book should be in stores everywhere. (Note that I said "should." If it isn’t in your local store, ask the nice folks behind the counter to order a copy for you. They should be happy to do so.)Goth Girl Rising cover

I hope everyone out there enjoys the book. I know that many of you have been waiting since the original publication of The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy and Goth Girl for this book to come out. Well, it’s here! So go have some fun with it.

To celebrate, I’ve added a couple of pages over at BarryLyga.com, under the Goth Girl Rising item in the Novels menu. First up is a Reviews page, where I’ve posted excerpts from some of the reviews the book has received to date. I’m happy to report that — so far — people seem to like it.

Secondly, I’ve posted a deleted scene from the book. I don’t think it really has any spoilers in it, but it will probably make more sense if you read the book first.

That’s all for now — have a great Goth Girl Rising Day! I hope you will let me know what you think of the book!

    I’ve been waiting for this sequel since I read the first book 3 or 5 times. I work at a library, and when I saw we had this book I flipped out. I rush to get all my work done and then I hide in a corner and read this book, therefore I stifle my laughter and hold in tears in that corner. Haven’t finished the book yet, but I LOVE IT!! At first i wasn;t sure if I was going to like it – but all doubts are gone now!!!
