Carpe Demon!

As I'm struggling under a killer deadline to put the right words on the page, I have to take a breath and smile at a fellow writer's hard earned success. Some times pure genius hits the page and Julie Kenner has a hands down winner for that award this summer! Carpe Demon!
The title is just the beginning taste of this author's mastery of wit and humor and the story is even more irresistible! See for yourself.

CARPE DEMON: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner (Berkley, July 2005)
Carpools. Crabgrass. Creatures from the depths of hell. Suburbia has its problems too...
Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn't hunted a demon in ages...
That must be why she missed the one wandering through the pet food aisle of the San Diablo Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, he managed to catch her attention an hour later-when he crashed into the Connor house, intent on killing her.
Now Kate has to clean up the mess in her kitchen, dispose of a dead demon, and pull together a dinner party that will get her husband elected to County Attorney-all without arousing her family's suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn't come alone. He was accompanied by a High Demon named Goramesh who, for some unknown reason, intends to kill off the entire population of San Diablo.
It's time for Kate Connor to go back to work.


CARPE DEMON: ADVENTURES OF A DEMON-HUNTING SOCCER MOM has been optioned for film by Warner Brothers & 1492 Pictures, and is scheduled for release as an audiobook from BBC America Audiobooks.

In addition, CARPE DEMON was recently honored by being selected by BOOKSENSE as a Summer 2005 Paperback Pick.
Do me a favor, after you read this jewel, let me know and e-mail Julie so you can get on a list to find out when the movie is coming out!
Stay safe this summer!
More to come soon.
