Announcing ALL OUR WORST IDEAS by Vicky Skinner!

Hi, Swooners!

I have been absolutely biting back some excellent news these past few months, and I am so excited to be here to finally let you all in on it! I have a new book coming out next year!

Here’s a little bit about All Our Worst Ideas:

When Amy, on her way to becoming valedictorian of her graduating class and getting accepted to her dream school, gets dumped by her long-term boyfriend, she takes a job at a record store to ease the pain. She needs a distraction, badly.

Oliver, Amy’s record store co-worker, isn’t so sure about Amy—his complete opposite—but what he is sure of is his decision not to go to college. He just can’t figure out how to tell his mother.

As they work late-night shifts at the record store, Amy and Oliver become friends and then confidantes and then something more, but when Amy has a hard time letting go of what she thought was her perfect future with her ex, she risks losing the future she didn’t even know she wanted with Oliver.

I can barely put into words how excited I am to share Amy and Oliver’s story with the world! Coming off of the personal challenge that was We Are the Ghosts, I was really ready to work on something lighter, something funnier and more romantic, and when I dusted off All Our Worst Ideas and started to rip it apart, I knew I made the right decision. I also knew that I wanted to write a story that was more universal. All Our Worst Ideas is about being open to new things, being who you want to be without worrying about disappointing everyone else, and finding that person in your life who will accept you, no matter what.

And without further ado, the absolutely popping cover of All Our Worst Ideas!


While it has its somber moments, All Our Worst Ideas is, at its heart, a romantic comedy about finding your equal in an unlikely place, and I think this cover captures that side of it perfectly.

I absolutely cannot wait for you to meet Amy and Oliver this summer!
