Event Details

Please join us for the launch of BOUNCE, the third installment in the BOOMERANG trilogy by Noelle August (aka authors Veronica Rossi and Lorin Oberweger). A funny and sweet romance, BOUNCE features two aspiring musicians who must choose between their careers and their sizzling attraction to each other.


When 22-year-old cellist Skyler Canby tries out for a small speaking part in a film, she never imagines that she will get the lead role. After wrecking his brother’s home, musician Grey Blackwood is forced to pay off the damages by working for him on his new film set. There he meets Skylar, and during her audition, they share a kiss that makes him unable to forget the pink-haired girl. When Skylar’s roommate offers Grey a place to stay, Skylar’s distracted by her new, younger roomie. Things are about to get interesting.


We are fortunate to have the opportunity to benefit Crisis Intervention of Houston, which started in 1970 with only a few people. They now answer over two-hundred crisis-related phone calls per day. Dedicated and trained counselors answer each call and both the caller and volunteers are anonymous, with one person helping another in a moment of need.

The evening will begin at 6pm at Brazos Bookstore with a book signing with the authors, accompanied by light refreshments. Beginning at 7pm, those who have tickets to the after-party may head over to Armadillo Palace to enjoy some more substantial food and drinks. Around 8:30pm we will have a raffle drawing for five different prizes!


VERONICA ROSSI is the author of the New York Times bestselling UNDER THE NEVER SKY trilogy for young adults. The books are available in more than thirty countries, and the film rights have been optioned. Her next book, RIDERS, is due out from Tor Books in February, 2016.

 

LORIN OBERWEGER is an award-winning author whose work has appeared in well over one-hundred periodicals and whose ghostwritten books have received glowing notices from the New York Times and Kirkus Reviews.

 

Together, Veronica and Lorin write the popular contemporary romance series, BOOMERANG, published by Harper/William Morrow under the pen name Noelle August. Their second book in the series, REBOUND, debuted in February, 2015, and the last book, BOUNCE, hits the shelves in August, 2015.

 

Their novels have been praised by Publishers Weekly and Library Journal, among others, and BOOMERANG was chosen as a “new and notable” selection for Target Stores across the US.
