Here’s a double sneak preview for all of you out there!
First, it’s a sneak preview of next week’s chapter of Molotov Hearts! Spit asked Jenn if she wanted to check out the roof and look, they’re on the roof! But what will happen next?!
Second, it’s a sneak preview of Liz Prince’s amazing cover for the sneak preview edition of the book! I’m going to be taking the Prologue and Chapters 1-9 and putting them together in zine form as a sampler to try and get the word out.
For those that are just hearing about it, Molotov Hearts is the first punk romance novel from Chris Eng (me) and is being serialized on HoodieRipper (with a new chapter every Friday, totally free). Here’s a description:
Jenn McNabb is a girl who spends her days shuttling back and forth between her crappy home life and crappy school life, dreaming of the punk scene—dreaming of escape (and maybe that punk boy she saw). But even if she manages to get into the scene (or get the boy), will that be enough to fix her problems and change her from the girl the world thinks she is to the girl she wants to be? And will she figure out how to throw a punch if she needs to?
Molotov Hearts features punk houses, punk parties, basement shows, make-out sessions, fist fights and dumpster diving. It’s funny, sad, romantic and a novel for anyone who wants to read a story in the tradition of “girl-meets-boy, girl-joins-punk-band, girl-kicks-ass.”
Incidentally, I’ve gotta say seeing artists I love and respect doing art based on my book is kind of blowing my mind.
