Brooding YA Hero

Becoming a Main Character (Almost) as Awesome as Me, by Carrie Ann DiRisio and‎ Broody McHottiepants

Have you ever wished you could receive a little guidance from your favorite book boyfriend? Ever dreamed of being the Chosen One in a YA novel? Want to know all the secrets of surviving the dreaded plot twist? Or maybe you’re just really confused about what “opal-tinted, luminous cerulean orbs” actually are? Well, popular Twitter personality @broodingYAhero is here to help as he tackles the final frontier in his media dominance: writing a book. Join Broody McHottiepants as he attempts to pen Brooding YA Hero’s Guide to Achieving Main Character Status, a “self-help” guide (with activities–you always need activities) that lovingly pokes fun at the YA tropes that we roll our eyes at, but secretly love.

BookDragon says: Hilarious! If you write any genre with male leads, this is a must read. Don’t write? Read it anyways! Broody is worth it.
