Cover Reveal: WORST CASE OF PASKETTI-ITIS by Kristine Carlson Asselin

Guys...I'm so excited to share this with you...

I wrote this book when my 10-year-old daughter was 3. I never thought this day would come! The art work is by the talented Luisa Gioffre-Suzuki. The book is schedule to be released in June from 4RV Publishing. 

Drum roll...


Pasta is the perfect food to Petunia!  There are so many different varieties!  Why should she eat anything else?  Her mother, her teacher, and even the lunch-lady, warn her that she might turn into pasta if she doesn’t try something else. Could she really turn into pasta? Would it be farfalle? Or maybe fettuccini? Petunia finds out, to her dismay, that “you are what you eat.”

I'm starting the marketing soon. If anyone is interested in hosting a blog tour or a spaghetti feed (lol), let me know!

Congrats! Very exciting news! And I love the concept of this book. I guess if we are what we eat, then I would turn into ice-cream. Or coffee.

Kris,
Very cute! I know you are one proud Mama of that book. It took 7 years for me too. Definitely worth the wait! :)
Spaghetti feed!... I love it!
Let me know & I'll blast it on FaceBook. I'm going to be restarting my FreePass Friday too. (I use to do this every other week on my writers' blog.) Maybe we can do an interview when it comes out.
Good luck!

Love your cover! A good feed of s'ghetti would go down a treat in this snow and cold weather.

Aww, it's the cutest! Love the title, and the concept too... Reminds me a little of THE CHOCOLATE TOUCH, which I LOVED growing up. Congrats, Kris... Can't wait to buy this one!

I love the cover--and the concept. I'd turn into chocolate and coffee quite quickly:-)

I've never hosted or been involved in a blog tour but would be happy to do so when the time comes. Congrats!

Kris--so awesome!

I see a twitter contest in your future, #IamWhatIeat

I would turn into a chocolate covered caramel with sea salt.

Or maybe a coca cola. But that would get sticky.

CONGRATS!!
