Earlier this year, ABC’s “General Hospital” released “Love In Maine,” which was a corporate tie-in with Disney/ABC Television Group’s Hyperpion Books and the debut novel by the fictional “GH” character Molly Lansing-Davis (Haley Pullos). Unfortunately, upon release Connie Falconeri had all the credit until TJ (Tequan Richmond), Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Shawn (Sean Blakemore) helped Molly set the record straight on the soap. Five months since the release of “Maine,” Hyperion Books has announced it plans to release the sequel to the novel as an eBook.
“Beautiful Stephanie Campbell thinks she has heard every line from every sleazy guy in Maine. Then Jimmy Post–well dressed, good-looking, and so self-assured–walks into the VA clinic where she works as a nurse and tells her she is beautiful. Stephanie thinks he is another creep hitting on her and gives him back a mouthful. But that night when she shows up at the pre-wedding party for her dear friend Maddie, who should she see but Jimmy–who just happens to be the bride’s brother and a self-made multimillionaire. Sparks fly. But will the small-town girl and the big-city hotshot find permanent happiness?” reads the description of the book, which can be purchased here.
“Main Squeeze” is scheduled for release on Tuesday, August 13. A paperback edition is currently unavailable.
Times, they are a-changin’! Due to a last minute switch in the production schedule over at “General Hospital,” there are some schedule changes taking place for a few of the “GH” Fan Club Weekend events taking place on Friday, July 26.
The Chad Duell (Michael Corinthos) and Kristen Alderson (Kiki Jerome) event has been moved to a later time slot, now taking place from 7PM to 9PM. And the Bryan Craig (Morgan Corinthos), Tequan Richmond (T.J. Ashford) and Jimmy Deshler (Rafe Kovich) event has been moved up to the earlier time of 4PM to 6PM. Meanwhile, Lisa LoCicero’s (Olivia Falconeri) event has been pushed back an hour. Her festivities will now take place from 10AM to 1PM.
As far as we know, none of the other “GH” event times have been affected by the scheduling conflict.
