Ashley Poston’s charming, heartfelt and hilarious rom-com THE DEAD ROMANTICS was announced yesterday, June 28, as Good Morning America’s July Book Club Pick.

THE DEAD ROMANTICS is about a down-on-her-luck ghostwriter who, after a horrible break-up, finds herself battling writer’s block with a deadline fast approaching. When she’s called back to her hometown for her father’s funeral, she finds herself haunted by the ghost of her new editor who is now, apparently, newly dead. His unfinished business will have her second-guessing everything she’s ever known about love stories.

The story marries the wonderful humor and insight of books like Beach Read with a fun, supernatural twist that makes for perfect summer reading.

THE DEAD ROMANTICS is already beloved by many. In a recent review, Olivia Waite at The New York Times raved, “I need to yell to everyone about how good it is.” With endorsements from bestselling authors Ali Hazelwood, Emma Straub and Christina Lauren, national media attention, and love from librarians and indie booksellers across the country (a June Library Reads and July Indie Next pick!)—THE DEAD ROMANTICS is a must-read this summer.

We encourage you to “meet the hot ghost” at the center of THE DEAD ROMANTICS and dip into the exclusive excerpt Entertainment Weekly shared earlier this year.
