Blitz+Giveaway: The Opposite of Nothing
(Goodreads linked to cover)
Pages: 110
Amazon                Barnes and Noble
Callie Evans would rather hide out in her DJ sound booth than face the fact that she's in love with her best friend, notorious campus hottie Tayber King. 
Tayber turns hooking up into an art form--no drama, no commitment, no lies, and nobody gets hurt. Nobody but Callie, that is. When she sees an opportunity to explore his sexier side using a fake online profile, she grabs it. Now her uninhibited alter-ego 'Sasha' is steaming up the screen, and Callie is breaking all of Tayber’s rules.
As Callie and Tayber get closer, online and off, she knows she has to confess. And risk losing him forever.
**For mature readers, contains strong language and adult situations.**

   I first got the idea for The Opposite of Nothing when the Manti Te’o scandal broke last year. I wanted to write a “catfish” story with a happy ending.
   According to extremely unreliable internet sources, the name Tayber means “misfortune.” This is appropriate.
   Callie is short for Callista, which comes from the Greek for “most beautiful.” No wonder she’s uncomfortable with it.
   I purposefully omitted the name of the song Tayber sings along with in the car after he and Callie go to the movies. I wanted it to be whatever song the reader wished a crush would sing to them. For me…he’s singing Ana Ng by They Might Be Giants.
   When Callie wallows in her guilty feelings, she plays a punk rock cover of the Fiona Apple song Criminal. As far as I know, there is no professionally recorded punk cover of that song. I so wish there was.
 **Top Songs on Callie's Playlist**
A sad-sappy playlist made for sitting alone in her apartment eating Oreos and contemplating the disaster that is her life.
Awful Mess – The Softies
Fineshrine – Purity Ring
Keep Yourself Warm – Frightened Rabbit

I Am Trying to Break Your Heart – Wilco
