The Right & The Real Book Trailer Reveal

I'm so excited to be participating in the trailer reveal for The Right & The Real by Joëlle Anthony today. It also happens to be her birthday today so stop by her blog and send her birthday wishes!


 About the Author: Joëlle started out life in Portland, Oregon as a talker, then a reader, eventually a writer, and by her teen years, the sirens of the stage were calling her name. With a BA in theatre, and absolutely no other marketable skills (not even waitressing(, she got some headshots made, and called herself an actress. Believe it or not, some people fell for it, and if you look really closely, and don't blink, you can see her in movies like What The Bleep Do We Know?  and The Temp.
The desire to write remained strong though and in between acting gigs, she began to scribble down her first novel for teens (which permanently resides in a drawer). Writing seemed to be her real calling and after many years of practice, and lots and lots of reading, she signed on with agent Michael Bourret at Dystel & Goderich Literary Agency. In the fall of 2008, she sold her first novel, a young adult book called Restoring Harmony, to Stacey Barney at Putnam (May 2010). In 2009, Putnam bought her second novel, The Right & The Real.
She currently lives on a tiny island in British Columbia with her musician husband, Victor Anthony, and two cats, Miss Sophie & Miss Marley. As for the future, their only plan is to avoid real jobs, write and play guitar in front of the wood stove, and live happily ever after.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

About the Book: From the author of Restoring Harmony. Kicked out for refusing to join a cult, 17-year-old Jamie must find a way to survive on her own.
Jamie should have known something was off about the church of the Right and the Real from the start, especially when the Teacher claimed he wasn't just an ordinary spiritual leader, but Jesus Christ, himself. But she was too taken by Josh, the eldest son of one of the church's disciples, and his all-American good looks. Josh is the most popular boy at school too, and the first boy outside the drama geeks to give Jamie a second look. But getting her Dad involved in a cult was not part of the plan when she started dating Josh. Neither was her dad's marriage to the fanatic Mira, or getting kicked out, or seeing Josh in secret because the church has deemed her persona non grata.
Jamie's life has completely fallen apart. Finding her way back won't be easy, but when her Dad gets himself into serious trouble, will Jamie be ready to rescue him, and maybe even forgive him?

Finally, the trailer! 

Check out Joelle Anthony's website and wish her happy birthday! 
Also, don't forget, The Right & The Real hits shelves on April 26!
