“Bad Idea” Week – Introduction to the Characters & Giveaway

Welcome to Boys in our Books’ “Bad Idea” week.  We will be spotlighting the new Damon Suede book (published by Dreamspinner Press) all week with highlights, author interview, characters interviews, and a guest post!

Today is RELEASE DAY for “Bad Idea” so let’s tell you a little bit more about the book!

ABOUT:
Some mistakes are worth making.

Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling super-square, straitlaced superheroes, hiding from his fans, and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams. Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnership.

Against their better judgment, they fall victim to chemistry, and what starts as infatuation quickly grows tender and terrifying. With Silas’s help, Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan: sketching out Scratch, a “very graphic novel” that will either make his name or wreck his career. But even a smash can’t save their world if Trip retreats into his mild-mannered rut, leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can’t escape.

What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it safe?

    Oh yeah, I can see that being Silas (yum!) but I picture Trip looking paler and definitely geekier.

        I’m obsessed with this Trip. I thought he’d be geekier too. But, Silas does mention how HOT Trip is on multiple occasions. I do want to defend Trip. Yes he pissed me off. And yes, Silas deserves…better treatment. But I think Rina and Jillian really explain Trip well. He’s built all these walls around him because…he’s alone…and he’s afraid. And he’s frayed. (gah I love that scene…). I was so angry at Trip…but I relate so much to him too.

    I have been waiting for a new Damon Suede novel since the moment I finished Hot Head. I would love to have a Bad Idea paperback signed by him, since no matter how much I want to and beg the universe to make it happen, I won’t be able to make it to Bent-Con to have him sign one in person for me.
