This is the cover for Lisa and Laura Roecker's new novel This is W.A.R. It's a tie-in to the world of The Liar Society, and The Lies that Bind.
Lisa and Laura were some of my very first friends in the blogosphere. They practically wrote the second (and way better) version of my query for Warrior-Monks. The one that got me requests and won a contest at WriteOnCon. I could go on for a while about everything I love about LiLa, but suffice to say although I have not read The Lies that Bind, I have read Liar Society, and the beginning of This is W.A.R. and these sisters have a penchant for writing compelling YA Contemporary Mysteries like no other author(s) I know.
So, I'm proud to be a part of their blog tour, and to do my little part to introduce you all to their new book.
Take it away, Sistahs.
When we access our handy-dandy character spreadsheet, we have Dianna Agron cast as Willa. She has that all American beauty we each think of when considering Willa. But Willa is more than just a beautiful face. She can see beyond the surface of each of her friends and knows exactly what they need and when they need it. Her obituary is devastating--the loss of one of the most beautiful and popular students in the community. But only her friends know just how much more everyone has lost.
Matt again: I'm sure you all know Diana from Glee, or maybe I Am Number Four. If not, what's wrong with you! She's a gorgeous, talented actress, and perfect for the role of Willa if you ask me: a pivotal character in is is W.A.R.
Lisa and Laura Roecker are sisters-turned-writing partners with a passion for good books, pop culture, and Bravo programming. Not necessarily in that order. A prepubescent obsession with Lois Duncan and their mother's insistence that they read Men Are Just Desserts inspired This is WAR. The sisters live in Cleveland, Ohio, in separate residences. Their husbands wouldn't agree to a duplex. Cyberstalking is always encouraged at lisa-laura.blogspot.com and @landlroecker on Twitter.
