Weirdos vs Bumskulls Blog Tour: Dempsey Love Profiles

I'm a big fan of Catnip Books in general and Natasha Desborough's wonderful Weirdos books in particular, so I was thrilled to be asked to take part in this blog tour! Thanks to Liz Bankes for setting it up and for writing the awesome intro below. (Speaking of Liz Bankes, I just read Undeniable again and it's AWESOME. If you need Ten Reasons to read it, just click!)


Welcome to Dempsey Love ™, the fast-growing, money-spinning dating service now available online. Paulette Dempsey is Bridge Mount Secondary School’s answer to Richard Branson (as soon as she has grown her own beard and bought a luxury island). Blossom and her fellow Weirdos can’t wait to log in and find love. Today Paulette has been ultra generous and allowed you to have a free taster of the site. Here is a selection of profiles from some of the site’s most highly attractive users. See if you can spot:

Natasha Desborough, the author of WEIRDOS VS BUMSKULLS
Liz Bankes, the editor of W VS B
A character from the book
and one random weirdo.







Funnier, weirder ruder . . . Blossom is back.

Blossom and Petrina, school weirdos, are on a (natural) high after their band Camel Toe share the bill with INTERNATIONAL ROCK GOD Josh Raven. Now they have the chance to perform at a real festival when they enter Battle of the Bands.

But then Blossom meets Vince, lead singer of rival band Bumskulls and TOTAL MANCAKE. And supposedly loved-up Petrina has been spotted staring (dribbling) at the bass player. 

In a churning whirlpool of love, sex and music, can the Weirdos keep their quest for Musical Domination on track? Or is everything about to go norks up?
