Yeah, so....welcome to the blog of Judith Tewes, young adult contemporary fiction author. Here be edgy stories with a side of snark.


My Books

I'm thrilled to announce my edgy young adult manuscript, MY SOON-TO-BE SEX LIFE, has a home with Bloomsbury Spark and will be released June 2014. 

About the book:

Charlie is down to her absolute. Total. Last. Resort.

Despite a thoroughly comprehensive list of potential cherry poppers, er…suitors, and careful plotting, Charlie is three weeks into her devirginzation campaign, still untouched, and getting desperate. In the movie of her life, this aspiring screenwriter is giving herself a PG, for please, get some.

Her project goes into freeze frame when her mom checks herself into rehab and packs Charlie off to live with her estranged, or just plain strange, grandfather, Monty. How is she supposed to get a date when she has to go pick up his Depends? 

Enter Eric, a hot rehab grad on the road to redemption, and the only one who can make Charlie rethink her strategy. The more she gets to know him, the more convinced she becomes that is the one, and not just another to add to the list of people who will abandon her.

In this hilarious and heartbreaking story of one girl’s detoured road to womanhood, Charlie’s list develops a life of its own – right when she realizes there’s so much more to lose.

Add it to your to-be-read shelf on Goodreads. 

The booktrailer:

As a bonus, how about a picture of my adorable labs....all three of them?

I know, cute (and/or vaguely ominous), but not quite literary, right?

Wait a sec - I do have books out now - but they're paranormal young adult fiction. If you're wanting some stories with bite, chomp on over to the website for my pen name, Judith Graves.

In the meantime, I'll be writing, revising, and building the TEWES empire.
