Humor Video Chat–Now With An Added Bonus!

I’m holding my next video chat next Monday night on writing humor in middle grade and young adult. I’ll share tips on how to infuse humor into any genre. Topics include:

  • unique phrasing
  • rule of three (how and when to use it)
  • snappy dialog
  • “the call back”
  • how to surprise your reader

The fee includes a copy of my middle grade novel, THE CLASSROOM, and my young adult novel, DITCHED. There are a few spots left, so head over to my agent’s website to sign up and read up on all the details: A Path To Publishing–Humor Workshop

But there’s a BONUS! Three of you who participate will be picked at random to win a signed copy of THE CLASSROOM book 2 before it even hits stores!



And just for fun, here are a couple of inside pages from book 2 (coming June 25th)…click to enlarge!

Also, if you click on the T-for-Twitter button below to share this post, I would consider you totally lovely. Yay, you lovely person!!



  • A Boy and His Creature

    Wow! Robin . . . where do you find the time to be already done with The Classroom: Book #2? You must be the “most prolific” MG writer in Ca. or at least on the central coast. Please don’t tell me you’re half way through writing book #3. (Has Disney optioned it as a film yet?)

    • R Mellom

      Aw, thanks! I’m actually finished with Classroom 3 since I have to turn in a draft about 15 months before publication. We have to allow time for the illustrator to work his magic! And no film option yet, but let’s hope!

  • About Robin

    The first book in my middle grade series, THE CLASSROOM: The Epic Documentary of a Not-Yet Epic Kid, is now available from Disney-Hyperion. It's a mockumentary of life in seventh grade...oh, the awkwardness.

    And my teen novel, DITCHED: A Love Story, is about a 16-year old girl who has one of those nights she'll always remember (and a prom she wants to forget). Check out the Teen Books section for an excerpt!
