As San Diego Comic-Con 2K13 fast approaches, enjoy a very apropos excerpt from Jennifer Susannah Devore's The Darlings of Orange County. The setting: The Banshee Pub in Uptown Manhattan. The action: a meeting between our heroine Veronica Darling and her prospective, new agent, Darby Elliot Stone, Esq.

"I'm not a big believer in people,” she leaned forward again and continued, “people are wankers. But, you got it all, Snowy: looks, savvy, attitude and, God forbid in this industry, talent to top it all off. F%*&ing classic children's lit you got. I'm not kidding. You got weird sci-fi appeal, anime-slash-manga appeal, cartoon appeal, ‘istory appeal, drama geek appeal, and overachieving li’l ‘omeschool wankers probably love this s&$%. I send you to Comic Con after we get Savannah of Williamsburg graphic novels out there," Veronica grinned ear-to-ear when she heard this, as this was something she'd wanted to do forever, "yeah," Darby acknowledged the grin, "I knew you'd like that idea. Anyway, I send you to Dork Con and you're going to need to lace your perfume with spermicide, so many geeks are going to involuntarily spooge all over you and that innocent Bettie Page thing you do. Then, they're going to actually read your work, 'cause geeks are one of the only groups left out there that know 'ow to read and you're going to need a f*&%king bodyguard to keep the Freaks and Geeks off of you. Trust me. I know people. They suck."

Like it? Read the whole thing! Read the reviews! It's hilarious, summer fun!

"Ch. 60. ROFL!" "Done. Omg! L.o.v.e.! So, so funny!"

Meet The Darlings

The Darlings of Orange County

The sexy, cashmere beaches of southern California aren't always what they seem. The dirty little secret here is what it takes to survive. Everyone has a trick up their silk sleeve. Liz Lemon meets Parker Posey, Veronica Darling is smart enough to know what it takes and is willing to soil her soul to bring Hollywood to the California Riviera. The Darlings of Orange County is a salacious, hilarious, harrowing romp chock full of eco-terrorism, horse-racing scandals, weed deals and the obligatory lipstick-lesbian affair that inevitably leads to murder. It all climaxes in a white-knuckled, glitzy, celebrity-stacked Laguna Beach Film Premiere that spells success for Veronica Darling and trouble for her friends and family.

Hannah Hart, ghost dame of the Hotel del Coronado

So, here's the low down, all you Joes and Janes ... I'm Hannah Hart, dead girl. Don't fret, it's actually a sweet dish being dead. Having perished in 1934 in a terrifically vicious accessories incident with actress Ida Lupino, I reside where I died: San Diego's gorgeous Hotel del Coronado. It ain't a bad gig at all, really! Great weather, swanky guests (not to mention a few fellow ghosties), amazing amenities, my own private turret overlooking the sea and all the java juice and giggle water I can handle; plus, these bartenders know how to make a Planter's Punch like nobody's business! See, I've been waiting for this Internet thing forever ... now, instead of slamming doors and moving lamps, I get to wag my tongue all I like at

Abyssinia, kids!
