No such thing as a free Lunch?

During the month of July, I am taking part in the Smashwords Summer/Winter Sale and offering Lunch in Brooklyn for FREE all month at Smashwords.

Click here for the book page and code. What’s the catch? There isn’t one, just a request: if you like it, be like Heather Locklear and tell a friend.


Have Lunch in Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood

Read a little more of Lunch on Mr. Beller’s Neighborhood.

“The Gift of Tongues” combines the New Yorker’s love of rooftops with the middle schoolers love of the grotesque and overtly sexual.

And in the spirit of NYC 1970s autobiographical realness, here’s a picture of me in 7th grade, holding a light meter for my father, who was a photographer. New Yorkers will recognize the Fox Police locks.

Review: Finally!

Daisy Porter says the book is “not perfect” but has “amazing voice.” She gives it four stars on Amazon.

Daisy blogs at Queer YA, reviewing LGTBQ fiction for teens. She may not know it, but she is also the first winner of a vintage Sassy/Nirvana sticker. Christina said she had not heard from her, which means her review was written just because, even better.

Solicited reviews are good, too. And there are nine stickers remaining if you want to get in on that action.

Review: “fresh, present and compelling”

Review by: Susan Price on May 08, 2012 : star star star star star
Lunch in Brooklyn is an amazing and engaging read. Set in late 1970s NYC, it is a year in the life of 14 year old Kate. The late 1970s in NYC were remarkable for parents and children – one might say their roles and responsibilities were practically reversed. Rebecca Moore has really captured so much of that era, both at home and at school, along with the teenage angst we all experience growing up. A very fresh, present and compelling read, you can’t help but identify with Kate and so many other characters.

The girls are back in town

Sassy readers of yesteryear, get on over to Christina Kelly’s blog, Fallen Princess. I did an author Q & A with her!

In addition to Christina’s rants, whims, wit and wisdom, you will also find Andrea, Kim and (I think) Marjorie, fka Margie.

Thanks again, Christina. I am proud to be a “colleague“!

Creative writing people, unite

My friend just mentioned my book in her blog, which would be like my first bit of media coverage. Which is awesome. And her blog is good and she’s smart and funny.

Here’s a sample:

“I used to be pretty creative.  I almost (almost) minored in creative writing, you know.  And when you almost minor in creative writing, you learn to write about what you know, to write about your life.  That’s what makes it true, even if it’s fiction.”

My first interview

One of my favorite bloggers interviewed me this weekend.

Here’s a link to the interview:

Have a question? I don’t promise to answer, but I’ll try.

“What were you like in middle school?” is a hard question. What would you say?
