Disney’s Hyperion Publishes ‘Love in Maine’ by General Hospital’s Connie Falconeri


When will the Connie (Kelly Sullivan) madness end on General Hospital? Apparently not before March 26. Hyperion is publishing the novel Love in Maine by the split-personality of fashionista Kate Howard.

Those watching GH realize Molly Lansing (Haley Pullos) actually wrote the love story, but apparently Connie will take credit. Amazon has listed the book for publication on March 26, 2013. From the descriptor:

As seen on ABC Daytime’s General Hospital, the delightful first novel from Port Charles’s Connie Falconeri. Whether you’ve been a fan of GH your entire life or simply love a romantic romp of a beach read, Love in Maine is simply unputdownable!

Maddie Post–outgoing, vivacious college athlete–does not belong in Blake, Maine. She does not belong in a riverfront diner catering to boat-builders, and she does not belong in sweet Janet Gilbertson's $200-a-month guest room. And Janet's dark and stormy son, Hank, back in Maine after 10 years as an active duty Army diver, isn't without his troubles, either. Quiet and brooding, he’s happiest working with explosives underwater: talk about pressure! For all their differences, when bubbly Maddie and cautious Hank start spending time together, it doesn't take long for the crackle of summer romance to grow into a blazing fire. They canoe and camp, watch movies and read paperbacks, fend off Maddie’s aggressive ex-boyfriend and encourage Janet’s blossoming romance with diner-owner Phil, and even spend a romantic weekend in Boston. Hank is softening up and Maddie is starting to feel more comfortable in her temporary home, but does this improbable couple belong together? And what happens to their relationship when Maddie heads back to college and Hank starts traveling the world again on a mysterious, possibly dangerous, assignment?

    Has this kind of cross-promotion ever really worked? This seems bizarre, considering the bleak state soaps are in today.

    Of course, the publishing industry is in dire straits, too.

    I am disappointed because I keep praying that I will read on this site, that KSu/Konnie is out at GH. I personally can’t stand this character, and think Ms S’s acting is deplorable. She is so over the top, bordering on ridiculous. I don’t think she has a clue how to portray subtleties in developing her character. I try to avoid watching any of her scenes… I find her that annoying. Now with this news, I know she is going to be around through the spring at least….The only good thing I can say about “Konnie” is she isn’t eating up all the airtime, like she used to.

    @ TV Gord, not sure if they’re exactly the same but “The Secret Life of Damien Spinelli” hit the NYT bestseller list at one point. “Robin’s Diary” did the same back in the 90′s. Those are just GH examples that I know of, not sure if other soaps ever tried the whole book tie-in thing.

    I was appalled when I read the good was being release via Amazon by Connie Falconwhatever. I have been looking forward to the day they got rid of Connie for good. Face it, Kate is Boring, Victoria Lord could be boring and so was Jessica Buchanan. It takes special range to pull off two personalities. When Sonny took Connie to court and she stated Kate was in fact the alter, hmmmm this could work. I trust the writers and the producers and love the fast pace of the stories and I am loving the Duke/Faison twist. Is Tomas really Alcazar, A.J. tying into Switzerland Hospital storyline with Robin, Duke, Faizon. The show is hot, hot, hot. I was watching the show and I was like is today Wednesday we don’t get revelations on Wednesday that is recycle words hump day. Having Connie write the book will give Alexis more tv time and we want to give her more tv time. I am actually going to trust the powers that be and see what develops. We didn’t like Blair, Carly or even Skye at first either maybe Connie may be the next one. Sonny needs a firecracker to really get over Brenda.
