Blog Tour and Guest Post: My Girlfriend Bites by Doug Solter

My Girlfriend Bites
Title: My Girlfriend Bites
Author: Doug Solter

Description: Sometimes the boy gets the werewolf.

A wimpy 16-year-old boy wants to find a girlfriend. When he falls for the perfect one, she shifts into a werewolf and throws his life upside down.

After his "dream" girl rejects him, 16-year-old Aiden tries to commit suicide. Yet he mysteriously survives. Now he feels like a loser with zero possibility of  finding the perfect girlfriend. Enter Bree, the creepy girl with too much hair who's rumored to be cloned from a frozen prehistoric cave girl that scientists discovered in Canada. But when he accepts a ride from “Cave Girl” during a storm, Aiden discovers this weird girl not only has a kind heart. She's also cute.

Aiden offers to help Bree in Algebra and the two become friends. When Aiden pushes that friendship into a date, Bree accepts. On a romantic night at the zoo, Bree and Aiden fall in love as the animals watch. Unlike Aiden, they can smell what Bree really is.

Bree decides to tell him her deep, dark secret. Her family are werewolves hiding from the Demon Skins, a mysterious new enemy hunting down all the werewolf packs on earth. Aiden struggles with Bree's revelation, but chooses to stand by the girl he fell in love with. But standing by his new girlfriend will be the biggest test of his life.

Too bad Bree can't turn a coward into a fearless werewolf. That bite thing is only a myth.
This forces Aiden to do the unthinkable...believe in himself.

Hi, Everyone!

Chloe and Elicia were so nice to invite me on their blog today to talk about my new paranormal young adult romance novel MY GIRLFRIEND BITES so...

Here are 10 things you didn't know about MY GIRLFRIEND BITES:

1) The main protagonist is a boy, Aiden, and the novel is his story. But I think girls will enjoy reading a YA novel with a boy POV for a change.

2) Bree, the girl he falls in love with, is a werewolf. She's stronger and faster than any human kid at her new school so she must hide who she is.

3) Early in the novel, Aiden tells another girl, Pamela, that he likes her. It backfires and she makes fun of him. The public humiliation triggers Aiden to try and kill himself.

4) Werewolves can't bite humans and turn them into werewolves. That's too bad because Aiden thinks it would solve all his problems.

5) Bree's family had to flee when their old Colorado pack were killed by a new enemy called the Demon Skins. They have been systematically hunting down werewolf packs across the world.

6) On their first official date, Aiden takes Bree out to a special night at the local zoo. The wolves there are happy to see Bree. So much so they threaten to reveal Bree's secret.

7) Issy Bishara is Aiden's best friend. His family is from Pakistan. When Issy finds out what Bree really is, the boy will regret it.

8) Bree is 16 and has her own car. A 1967 Oldsmobile 442. She likes it because it's big, black, and mean looking. Aiden finds out how fast it can go when Bree almost kills him in it.

9) February is mating season for werewolves. It's a time when wolf hormones are hard to control and teen werewolves suffer the most. Bree has to resist Aiden or she will do something she'll regret.

10) This isn't a paranormal novel about a boy becoming a werewolf to solve all his problems. It's a paranormal novel about a normal boy who falls in love with that special girl who helps him realize what kind of person he can be.
