Book Blitz: Dear Internet: It's Me, Avery by Jennifer Ammoscato

Oh, don’t judge me, people. We all do it.

Don’t try to tell me that you’ve never checked that weird mole on your thigh on WebMD. Or how to fold meringue on Epicurious. And, there’s no way that I’m the only one who clears her search history after looking up how to give a great bl— (Um, that last one’s not important.)

When newspaper reporter Avery Fowler discovers her husband is having an affair, the online help site is where she turns to navigate this challenging stage of her life.

If the Internet is Avery’s information god, then is her Holy Grail. Its live chat option is like having a virtual life coach for the low, low price of $14.95 a month:

When I joined, it assigned me “Clementine” as my advisor, based on my choice of “British female” in the Preferences panel. That way, I can pretend that a Maggie Smith or Judi Dench type supplies the wisdom, tinged with a sassy touch of malt vinegar. (In reality, it’s most likely a bored, seventeen-year-old boy labouring in a New Delhi call centre.)

Add into the mix a new boss whose managerial style calls to mind the Wicked Bitch Witch of the West—or the Anti-Christ—and the poor girl needs all the help she can get! The stakes rise and hilarity ensues as our heroine struggles to take control of her personal life and topple her boss after she learns Victoria’s guilty secret.

With Clementine (virtually) in tow, our heroine tackles such tricky situations as dating after divorce, sex once nothing points north anymore, and how to cover attempted murder scenes (despite a paralyzing fear of blood) as the new and improved Avery Fowler 2.0.

Author Bio:

Author Jennifer Ammoscato – solving the world’s problems one cosmo at a time.
Jennifer Ammoscato is a paid, productive member of society. Frankly, it’s not enough.
Therefore, May 2015 will see the launch of her debut novel, “Dear Internet: It’s Me, Avery” (The
“Avery Fowler 2.0” series, Book I).
During the day, she is an intrepid writer/editor for the public relations department of a
Canadian university. By night, she fights crime and the urge to organize closets and stuff herself
with salted chocolate caramels.
Jennifer began writing as a child, producing such classics as “The Occurrence” (she understood
the appeal of werewolves long before Stephenie Meyer). She had to search for the courage to
write a novel, though. “That’s so F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway. I didn’t know if I
had the alcohol capacity for it.” However, after being goaded (sorry, encouraged) by a friend, she
took the leap.
Dreams do not inspire Jennifer’s books. In fact, they tend to terrify her. In particular, the everpopular
naked-at-school or I-have-a-final-exam-and-didn’t-study dreams. She usually just makes
stuff up.
She is married to her husband, Ezio. As opposed to someone else’s husband (insert name here).
She is the proud mom of two very tall sons, Dante and Christian.
