IN OTHER NEWS:
A fellow tiquee asked Snoop for help on a manuscript title based on a query letter synopsis. As Tamarak and Snoop’s agent know, Snoop really really stinks at titling. So without further ado, can anyone help this writer with a title?
Melanie Ratsnester never, in a million years, imagined she would be teased about anything other than her name. But then her single mom since forever decides to completely ruin her life by marrying a Mortician. No matter how much she desperately pleads, Melanie is pulled from her comfortable life in the big city and is forced to adjust to small town life, population 2,001. A town where the dead outnumber the living.
It isn’t long before Melanie is suddenly labeled as the outsider, the butt of jokes, the hot topic of gossip. Of course it doesn’t help when the cemetery is her backyard, the mortuary is only feet away, and she’s picked up from school in a hearse. People say she sleeps in a coffin, they call her family the “Addam’s Family” and somehow she never becomes old news. The gossip becomes more creative, though not entirely untrue. Melanie discovers humor can overcome any situation and learns that sometimes…the dead are more pleasant than the living.
