It is my pleasure to welcome Randy Russell to Book Angel Booktopia today, I cannot tell you how excited I was when I discovered Dead Rules was to be published in the UK.
Title: Dead RulesAuthor: Randy RussellPublisher: QuercusPublication Date: 29 March 2012Synopsis from GoodreadsWhen high school junior Jana Webster dies suddenly, she finds herself in Dead School, where she faces choices that will determine when she, a Riser, will move on, but she strives to become a Slider instead, for the chance to be with the love of her life--even if it means killing him.
My Playlist for DEAD RULES
(Quercus Books UK, March 2012)
By R.S. Russell
Writing about dead kids in love, I found Lifeboat Party early on in the process and played it often to welcome each of the characters in Dead Rules to their time in the book. You’re invited, too. Watch out for the bass player – he’s got a thing for you.
For Jana, the new girl in
This is the bowling scene from Dead Rules, where Jana began her quest by dying there. As a ghost, Mars has just Seen A Face. And, yeah, she’s got a boyfriend.
My favorite character in Dead Rules is Wyatt, who finds beyond death that one side of his face and body has been sanded by pavement. It doesn’t stop him from being Smooth (by Rob Thomas and his buddy Carlos).
Michael, the cad? Well, he makes a run for it. Joe King Carrasco knows how. “Let’s Go” already.
And for everyone who understands reading as a temporary relationship between the reader and the author, this song is one I share between just you and me. Day is Done.
For all of you that have read the book I am sure you will agree just how perfectly these songs fit the story.
Thanks for sharing Randy
