COMING APRIL 15 from Astraea Press:
by Deborah Kreiser
Tall and lanky, Genie Lowry is only noticed at academic awards assemblies—until the day she turns 17 1/2, when her body changes from Kate-Hudson-flat to Katy-Perry-curvy—and she finds out she’s a real, live genie. Suddenly, every guy at school is paying attention to her, including Pete Dillon, her never-in-a-million-years crush.
But to gain her full powers and keep her new body, Genie has to find a master, and she’s not sure if Pete’s Master (or Mr.) Right. With help from her dead mother’s interactive diary and an imposing mentor with questionable motives, Genie uncovers the family history and genie rules she never knew. She grapples with her new powers and searches for the perfect master as she tries to make her own wishes come true.

My Other Books
My second completed (but not polished) manuscript, working title ONWARD, is set in 1870, just after the Wyoming Territory becomes the first place in the U.S. to give women suffrage. Hannah Cohen, a young Jewish woman from upstate New York, moves to Laramie so she can get the vote and live an independent life. It’s in dire need of an edit before it could go anywhere.
three two THREE Works In Progress (WIPs). The first is called JUDGMENTAL. It’s a YA Fantasy about a narcissistic 16-year-old New Englander who is sent to live with her estranged father in Ireland, and she discovers she’s much more than just a pretty face. I put that on hold (see blog) to start THE EVERGREEN, a MG contemporary about a young boy who tries to keep his two moms a secret from his new school. (I had a third, a short story romance (<10k words) that I was kind of doing for kicks, but then I got to the steamy scenes and chickened out.)
And for NaNoWriMo 2013 I started another WIP, working title A POX ON BOTH YOUR HOUSES. It’s YA Contemporary, a reinterpretation of Romeo and Juliet, set in D.C. and told from the POV of Paris. No, THE EVERGREEN isn’t done yet. It will be . . . sometime soon. Sigh.
