Unsoul’d is #1!

My quirky, sexy adult novel, Unsoul’d, has hit the top spot on Kobo’s list for Fiction & Literature (as well as the subcategories of Humor and Literary)!

Yes, I’m psyched!

Unsoul’d was an interesting project for me. Written with a very adult audience in mind, even though I’m known for YA, it published a couple of years ago to very little fanfare (a deliberate decision on my part). I love the book for its unrelenting narcissism and its absurdly overwrought sex. Plus, it’s way closer to the reality of being a writer than most people want to admit!

As I’ve said in the past, Randall Banner — the book’s unlikeable protagonist — does and says everything I wish I had done and said in my life…and am now so glad I never did!

In a way, Unsoul’d is a look at how Fanboy might have grown up if he’d never met Kyra.

If you’re interested, give it a shot. You can get the super-cheap e-book at Kobo for a mere $3.99. And it’s available everywhere else, too, of course!

Unsoul’d is available as an ebook only. To read an excerpt (almost half the book!), go here.

Unsoul’d: On Sale!

UnSouldAre you looking for a book that doesn’t have a moral or a lesson, a book with bad people doing bad things and not feeling too guilty about it? A book where sex is a sport…and sports get dirty? More importantly, do you not want to spend a bunch of money for this?

Well, you’re in luck.

Unsoul’d, my “dirty little fable” about an author who sells his soul to the devil, is currently on sale at all e-tailers! For a mere $3.99, you can enter the sad, funny, perverted world of Randall Banner as he tries to write a bestselling novel, deals with a pain-in-the-ass devil, and has a metric ton of illicit sex.

“That day I had a bagel for breakfast and sold my soul to the devil. In retrospect, the bagel was probably a mistake.”

Randall Banner is thirty-five years old, a middling mid-list author who yearns for more of everything: More attention. More fame. More money. More fans.

Then, one quiet morning, he meets the devil while pounding away at his laptop at his usual coffee shop. Soon, a deal is made, a contract is signed, and Randall is on his way to fame and fortune unlike any he ever imagined.

What follows is a bawdy, hilarious, yet harrowing tale of one man, one devil, and a deal that could change the world.

Bestselling romance novelist Sarah Maclean says Unsoul’d is “Like Nick Hornby writing an episode of Californication!” And hey, she would know!

Here’s what some readers who aren’t Sarah Maclean have said:

Loved this book. Twisted in the right way.

That ending was just…I have no words. It was a great read and totally unexpected ending, in one word amazing.

Lyga’s take on the devil is as clever, and unique, as Twain’s or Lewis’s.

A laugh-out-loud, insightful, and sarcastic book about writers and writing, Brooklyn, LA, and what happens when you just say, “What the Hell…”

My First Book On Sale…Cheap!

Hey, there, gang!

The Astonishing Adventures of Fanboy & Goth Girl

So, the various etailers of the world have gone a little nuts this holiday season. You can now (for however long “now” happens to last…) buy my very first novel as an ebook for the obscenely low price of just $1.99 at these major ebook sellers:

And hey, the sequel, Goth Girl Rising, is pretty cheap, too, at just $5.99 on Amazon and iBooks.

Then, as if that’s not enough, if you’re curious as to what Fanboy might be like as an adult if he’d never met Goth Girl — and if you’re an adult yourself — check out my latest novel, Unsoul’d, which is pretty damn inexpensive itself at just $3.99!

Wow. That was almost like a commercial! :)

As I indicated above, I have no idea how long this sale will last, so go get it while it’s hot!

Unsoul’d is Now on iBooks

This actually should have happened a few weeks ago, but, well, Life intruded.

Anyway, Unsoul’d is now available on iBooks! iOSers, go get it!iBooks

Come See Me! “Hybrid Publishing” at WORD

word_logoMy last event of 2013 will be at one of my favorite local bookstores, WORD, located in Brooklyn. The folks at Kobo are sponsoring this event to celebrate the publication of Unsoul’d — there will be food and drink and giveaways…including a free ereader!

There will also be a reading from the book (my first reading from this book!) and I’ll be discussing the ins and outs of publishing, e-publishing, self-publishing, and all the things that go into being a “hybrid author.”UnSoul'd_sm

Of course, I’ll sign books and take questions, too. Wouldn’t be much of an event otherwise, right?

I hope to see you there!
