About This Book
“Estaba completamente segura de unas tres cosas. Primero, Edwart era, tal vez, mi alma gemela, quizá. Segundo, él tenía una parte de vampiro —que yo asumía estaba totalmente fuera de su control— que me quería muerta.Y tercero, yo deseaba incondicional, irrevocable, impenetrable, heterogénea, ginecológica y vergonzosamente que me besara”. Y así, Belle Goose se enamoró del misterioso y chispeante Edwart Mullen en esta desternillante parodia de la irreverente Harvard Lampoon.
 
Pálida y patosa, Belle llega a Switchblade, Oregon, buscando una aventura o por lo menos, un compañero de clase inmortal. Pronto descubrirá a Edwart, un nerd guapo, loco de las  computadoras, con cero interés por las chicas. Después de ser testigo de extraños sucesos –¡Edwart no se ha comido sus patatas rellenas!¡Edwart la ha salvado de una bola de nieve!–, Belle tiene una dramática revelación: Edwart es un vampiro. Pero, ¿cómo convencerle para que la muerda y la convierta en su novia eterna si parece sentir repulsión por las chicas?
 
Políticamente incorrecta, llena de amor, peligro, acoso e insuficiente supervisión paternal, Corpúsculo es la hilarante historia de una chica obsesionada por los vampiros que busca el amor en el sitio equivocado.

  • The Wobbit

    The Wobbit
    A Parody
    The sequel to the parody of the sequel to the prequel to The Lord of the Rings When Aaron Sorkinshield and his band of Little People embark on a totally feasible quest to reclaim the hoard of Academy Awards stolen from them by the lonely Puff the Magic Dragon, senile wizard Dumbledalf suggests an unlikely and completely unqualified accomplice: Billy Bagboy, an unassuming wobbit dwelling in terrorist-riddled Wobbottabad. Along the way, the company faces Internet trolls, moblins, one really big spider that must be at least an inch and a half wide, and worse. But as they journey from the wonders of Livinwell to the terrors of Jerkwood and beyond, Billy will find that there is more to him than anyone—Tolkien included—ever dreamed. Propelled to his destiny by a series of courageous adventures and indented paragraphs, Billy will set out on the greatest YOLO of all time . . . one that leads deep into the dark caverns hiding a mysterious man named Goldstein, who’s just trying to have a nice seder.

    Nightlight

    Nightlight
    A Parody of Twilight
    When you like, live forever, what's there to live for? 'About three things I was absolutely certain. First, Edwart was most likely my soul mate, maybe. Second, there was a vampire part of him -- which I assumed was wildly out of his control -- that wanted me dead. And third, I unconditionally, irrevocably, impenetrably, heterogeneously, gynecologically, and disreputably wished he had kissed me.' And thus Belle Goose falls in love with the mysterious and sparkly Edwart Mullen in this hilarious send-up of Twilight. Pale and klutzy, Belle arrives in Switchblade, Oregon looking for adventure, or at least an undead classmate. She soon discovers Edwart, a super-hot computer nerd with zero interest in girls. After witnessing a number of strange events -- Edwart leaves his hash browns untouched at lunch! - he saves her from a flying snowball and Belle has a dramatic revelation: Edwart is a vampire. But how can she convince Edwart to bite her and transform her into his eternal bride, especially when he seems to find girls so repulsive? Complete with romance, danger, insufficient parental guardianship, creepy stalker-like behaviour, and a vampire prom, Nightlight is the hysterical tale of a vampire-obsessed girl, looking for love in all the wrong places.

    The Hunger Pains

    The Hunger Pains
    A Parody
    The hilarious instant New York Times bestseller, The Hunger Pains is a loving parody of the dystopian YA novel and film, The Hunger Games. Winning means wealth, fame, and a life of therapy losing means death, but also fame! This is The Hunger Pains. When Kantkiss Neverclean replaces her sister as a contestant on the Hunger Games—the second-highest-rated reality TV show in Peaceland, behind Extreme Home Makeover—she has no idea what to expect. Having lived her entire life in the telemarketing district’s worst neighborhood, the Crack, Kantkiss feels unprepared to fight to the death while simultaneously winking and looking adorable for the cameras. But when her survival rests on choosing between the dreamy hunk from home, Carol Handsomestein, or the doughy klutz, Pita Malarkey, Kantkiss discovers that the toughest conflicts may not be found on the battlefield but in her own heart . . . which is unfortunately on a battlefield.
