Book World News

The Independent Book blogger award winners have been announced!

Goodreads members flooded the polls for this inaugural IBBA, with nearly 10,000 people voting for more than 800 blogs. And the topics the blogs covered were extraordinarily diverse: a recap of World Book Night; a post about favorite literary quotes; a Fify Shades of Grey read-along. After the Goodreads community narrowed the field to fifteen finalists in four categories, a panel of book industry professionals judged each blog for its caliber of writing and design, depth of knowledge, and the quality of the discussion it generates.

The winners received a trip to New York to attend the Book Expo America 2012.

The four winners were:

Insatiable Book Sluts

Sophisticated Dorkiness

Nerdy Book Club

Writer Beware Blogs

Congratulations!

Kate Hart has put together a truly amazing chart of the color dynamics in Young Adult covers for 2011.  That’s the good part.  The bad part is her findings in ethnic diversity of cover models.

And by bad, we mean – dismal.

We should take a moment to appreciate that Kate Hart evaluated over 624 traditionally published titles, and a further 200+ self-published titles.  Kate Hart – take a bow!  That is a brilliant effort!

But her findings are so very depressing!

This year, I counted each model individually– for example, a cover with two white girls and one latina would be counted three times overall, but my divisor of 624 remained the same. There’s certainly a margin of error present in my perceptions, my questionable eyesight, and the sheer overwhelming mess of a 900+ line spreadsheet, but still.** Even if you can think of two or three examples I missed (and I hope you can!), this is just dismal.

Of the groups represented enough to show up in a pie slice, black characters/models are not only fewest in number, they’re barely even on their own covers.

Also, her general observations about covers:

  • Filigree. It’s so hot right now.
  • Flowers. Only half as hot as filigree.
  • It turns out there’s only one “l” in filigree but the object chart crashes my computer every time I open it so I’m not going to edit the image. Please forgive me, grammar gods.
  • Trees, water, hearts, moons, snow, sparkles, blood, necklaces, the ocean, birds, fire, grass, stars, leaves, reflections, clouds, and hands are the other most popular cover images. I thought butterflies and masks would figure much higher. (Also, I did some dumb things like counting trees and branches separately. Same with swords, blades, and daggers. Your mathematical mileage may vary.)

 

Steph says: And I have a dream that one day races of all nationalities and both genders will be properly represented on the covers of YA books!

Yet ANOTHER article poo-pooing Young Adult literature!

Sarah Rainey, writing for the telegraph had this to say:

Indeed, studying Harry Potter as a work of literature turns the literary world upside-down. If Dumbledore and Hagrid can be granted the status of Don Quixote and Hamlet, it’s alarming to contemplate what’s next. A dystopian interpretation of A Very Hungry Caterpillar? The Twilight series as an A-level text?

As the first Potter literary conference draws to a close, let’s hope the delegates have learnt something: J K Rowling may be a great storyteller, but she’s no Shakespeare. Her books, though enthralling, weren’t written for academic study. It’s an injustice to Britain’s true literary greats to pretend otherwise.

Leigh Bardugo had this to say:

“What bugs me is that people seem incapable of talking about a single work w/out slamming the entire genre (with antiquated half-assed ideas).”

And, possibly reflecting Stephanie and my feelings more adequately:

“We are coming. And we have EFFING BROADSWORDS. You should be scared, you reductive asshats.”

Sarah Rees Brennan also had some interesting comments:

“Ugh, no Shakespeare. ‘Not written by someone dead more than 100 years, and she’s a LADY, and it’s for KIDS!'”

Then she posted this video – which we feel will be educational for all involved.

Debate about Harry Potter literature:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

This is going to be grossly shocking to everyone who reads our blog but… The Selection Pilot DID NOT get picked up by CW.

I know, right?  What is the world coming to?

“Although The CW didn’t pick up the Aimee Teegarden pilot The Selection for its 2012-2013 season, Deadline reports that the network hasn’t given up on spinning Kiera Cass’s dystopian book trilogy into a TV series. An epic romance set 300 years in the future, The Selection centers on a young woman (Aimee Teegarden) who is chosen by lottery to participate in a competition to marry a prince and become the next queen of a war-torn nation.

Sounds a lot like The Hunger Games, no? Well, that’s the idea, and it’s no wonder The CW wants to try again with this one, since it succeeded big-time when it capitalized on the Twilight craze with The Vampire Diaries. According to Deadline, the network is looking to redevelop The Selection pilot, most likely with Aimee still playing the lead. CW president Mark Pedowitz tells the site, “I truly believe that there is a series in The Selection.””

Perhaps my favourite comment came from Welurklate on ONTD:
“Though like think of how shitty this pilot must have been for the CW to reject it.Mull that over.”

More Tragedy Strikes the book world!

Jean Craighead George, author of Julie of the Wolves, passed away at the age of 92.

Jean Craighead George, a Newbery Award-winning writer for young people whose books brought the natural world from the Catskill Mountains to the Alaskan tundra to wild, luminous life, died on Tuesday in Mount Kisco, N.Y. She was 92.

The author of more than 100 fiction and nonfiction titles that have collectively sold millions of copies, Ms. George was best known for two novels for older children, “My Side of the Mountain” (1959), which she also illustrated, and “Julie of the Wolves” (1972), illustrated by John Schoenherr. That book won the Newbery Medal — considered the Pulitzer Prize of children’s letters — in 1973.

First Maurice Sendak, and now Jean Craighead George!

Carlos Fuentes also passed away!

Carlos Fuentes, who has died aged 83, was the most influential Mexican novelist of his generation and a catalyst for the literary explosion that introduced Latin American writers to a worldwide audience.

“…he examined his country’s history, its revolution, the corruption of power and the dilemma of national identity. He addressed his country’s uneasy, shifting relationship with its northern neighbour, the United States, and celebrated the cultural and linguistic re-colonisation of territory such as California, that had been appropriated in the 19th century. These were interests that rippled outwards, developing into a metaphor that reflected Latin America’s relationship to the rest of the world.”

Publishing house Houghton Mifflin Harcourt files for Bankruptcy.

“The company, based in Boston, listed assets and debt of more than $1 billion each in Chapter 11 documents filed today in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan. More than 20 affiliates also entered bankruptcy, including Broderbund LLC and Classroom Connect Inc.”

Fake Editor’s comments on the matter?

“Reading the bankruptcy statement from Houghton Mifflin. Suppliers and employees get paid. Authors get “no disruption to relationships” Which I read as authors, you’ll still have to fight tooth and nail for your royalties and good luck getting advances now.”

That’s right.  We here at Cuddlebuggery get most of our opinions for twitter accounts prefaced with the word “fake”.  We’re just that good.

Scandalous Scandals

A warning out for authors regarding another unethical press.

Mandy DeGeit blogs about her experience with Undead Press for the publication of her title She Makes Me Smile.

The book, part of a larger anthology arrives and she is greeted with this unpleasant experience:

There’s a spelling mistake in the title of my story. *(Not from my submission however… They changed it to wrong.)

“She Make’s Me Smile” by Mandy J. De Geit

Well that made me sad, but okay the Mandy part is kinda cool. Let’s see the story itself…

ARGH!!! Same mistake on the title page. Fack, She Make is Me Smile… Really?

However, had that been the only, mortifying, issue then perhaps… no.  It would still be horrific.  But it gets worse.

They changed my story without telling me. Let’s see: They turned a non-gendered character into a boy, they named the best friend, they created a memory for the main character about animal abuse. They added a suggestion of rape at the end…

This is the response from Anthony Giangregorio:

“wow, i truly cant believe that e,mail. you go girl. this one one hell of a story about dealing with unstable writers

lets see.
on the contract, it clearly says publisher has the right to EDIT work. you signed it. are you saying you are a dishonest and immoral person and will now try to deny you signed the contract? well i have a copy right here
and as for the story. the editor had a hard time with it, it was very rough and he did alot to make it readable. despite what you think, your writing has a long way to go before its worthy of being printed professionally.
we did what we had to do to make the story printable. you should be thankful, not complaining. ah, the ungrateful writer, gotta love it
the contract also says any disagreements you have about the contract must be filed legally in Massachusetts and when you lose, you must pay all court costs.
so, we are done here. any more correspondences from you must be from your lawyer. i will then send any of those letters to my lawyer and they can hash it out as i dont waste my time arguing with writers over legalities. thats what lawyers are for.
you are so funny. thanks for this email, it truly made my day.”

Perhaps a break in the narrative should be taken at this point to illuminate on the fact that any publisher who writes like this, even in casual emails, should probably not be trusted with your baby.

You can read the rest of Many DeGeit’s tale here.   There aren’t any screengrabs up on her site and we only have a very partial story so far, but other authors who have dealt with this press have come forward with similar stories.

It should be noted that before signing with ANY press, a good place to go is AbsoluteWrite’s Bewares, Recommendations, & Background Checks forum is an invaluable tool.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

A self-published author posted her opinion, defense and top tips for encouraging reviewers to change their negative reviews and up the star rating.

Of course, you won’t actually find any of these reviews there now—at least, not exactly, and not with the 1-star ratings they were originally given. Why? Because when I got my first 1-star review back in 2010, I didn’t close my eyes, “wish upon a star,” and hope it would all go away.

That sound you heard was my internal groaning manifesting itself into physical form.

The author claims that this is because she is keeping their money and feels POORLY for them and is thus doing them a favour by contacting them.

And she goes out of her way to assure us that:

In fact, never has my attempt to reach out to a reader resulted in a negative outcome. Deafening silence, sure, but never negativity.

Really?  Surprising but… okay, that’s at least a good thing.  But then, what did you mean when you said:

I will describe—in painful, mortifying detail—the worst reviews I’ve ever received, the (often heated) exchanges with the readers that followed.

So… never a negative outcome for you?  Or for them?  I think I’d like a clarification on that one.

I think the best response to this post is made by, none other than, Stacia Kane.

And quote of the day:

6. Not only do I think Lisa in Omaha deserves a book that’s as good as I can possibly make it right from the get-go, I happen to think Lisa in Omaha deserves the truth. The emotional truth. The intellectual truth. I think Lisa in Omaha deserves art for her seven bucks. I think Lisa in Omaha deserves to read a book that actually fucking means something. To me. Hopefully to her.

Lisa deserves to read fiction that stands for something and that says something, written by an author who stands for something and has something to say. I don’t care what genre you write in or what genre you read; at its core, in the most basic and honest and real fashion, fiction is about telling the truth. It is about connecting with people; with people who read the book, with the person who wrote it.

I’m going to need a judge’s approval on that.

If that was your first dose of Ryan Gosling today, then you’re welcome.

The Mathias Meltdown

Self-published author, M. R. Mathias had a little (or not so little) meltdown on Fantasy-Fiction.com.

When his posts, publicizing his own book, were moved to the self-published, small press forum, Mathias had this to say:

I am not a small press. I am an author with 18 titles for sale. That is more titles that some big publishing houses. I have advertising currently running in Locus, Publishers Weekly, Fantasy and Sci Fi, and Revolver magazines. I have blog advertising across the entire blog-o-sphere. I am not a small press or even self published. M. R. Mathias’ books are PUBLISHED by Michael Robb Mathias Jr. and should be treated no differently that any big named publishers title. WHY? Because I do my job as a publisher too. Please quit sending my posts into the self published/small press thread. My titles are neither. I have 92k twitter followers @DahgMahn and 10 titles in their genre bestselling list. There is nothing self pubbed, or small, about books written by M. R. Mathias.
Thank you,
M.R.Mathias’ publisher, Michael Robb Mathias Jr.

Jennie Ivins makes a valid reply when she responds with:

Small Press is defined by Wikipedia (related to US publishers) as a publishing house that makes under $50 million dollars a year and publishes fewer than 10 titles a year. Unless you are making and publishing more than that, in the US, you are considered a Small Press publisher. There is nothing wrong with being a small press publisher. If you look purely at the numbers a company could make $40 million dollars a year and publish 9 books a year and still be considered small press. That does not make them less successful or the work they publish less important. But it still means they are small press.

But this is mostly lost on the author in question who went on to tweet and tag Fantasy Fiction as Nazis.  You can read about it here.

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Sarah Cross, author of a new title, Kill Me Softly, and The Story Siren have made an interesting move.  Cross’ guest post discusses the damage and hurt she felt after she had been plagiarized.

You can read the post here*.

It is still unclear if Cross knew about Sirengate and was aware of it before the guest post went up.  But the move by TSS to post it has caused something of a scandal on Twitter.

*The link posted above does not go to The Story Siren but to an image of the blogpost for people to read and determine for themselves how they feel about it.

*There has been one other drama this week that we will not be covering today on Cuddlebuggery.  We will be delving into it in much more detail this week so stay tuned.

    Thank you for keeping me up to date on the book world news. I only picked up about half of these from Twitter.

    First off, I want to punch that obnoxious lady insulting Harry Potter. There is never anything wrong with literary analysis of anything! Obviously, some books are meatier for analysis and will result in longer, deeper discussions, but I’m pretty sure if my friends and I read 50 Shades of Grey, we could discuss it intellectually, even if mainly about feminism. Who is she to decree what’s good? I’m pretty sure classics are determined by posterity.

    Honestly, I’m kind of sad The Selection didn’t get picked up, because it was going to be some crazy melodrama for me to laugh at. Oh well. At least Gossip Girl got another season. I mean, what?

    That small press guy is INSANE. I’m pretty sure the definition of self-published is publishing yourself. I am not fooled by his using his initials in his author name and his full name as a publisher. BULL.

    Also, I would love to know if Sarah Cross knew. I mean, I don’t know how she could NOT know. If she did know, I rather hope that she was doing some shit-stirring.

    That James Van Der Beek GIF is THE BEST.

      @Christina (A Reader of Fictions): Oh my goodness! I wanted to punch her in the face too! Firstly, because she actually displayed an amazing lack of familiarity on the topic! I mean, c’mon, if she doesn’t even know how highly contested the Hermione as a feminist figure thing is – then she needs to pack up and go home now. Most of all, it showed she’d probably benefit from the lectures!

      And that GIF? As soon as I saw it I was like, “MUST. HAVE. IT!”

  2. Krista R

    I was super bummed The Selection didn’t get picked up, considering The CW chose 5 of 8 new shows for next season. But I read on Deadline and Hypable that the president of The CW is going to try to film The Selection again in time for mid-season. They want to change all the cast except for Aimee Teegarden. I’m really not sure what that means, but I’m crossing my fingers for it to be made. Love your Buzzworthy News as always :)

  3. Cassi Haggard
    Twitter:

    That self-pubbed author’s “comment on negative reviews” made me embarrassed that I’m the same species as someone like her. She also bragged about complaining her way to perks at a hotel. She’s clearly an entitled princess of a person and a bit of a bully. I’ve already shelved her as “will not read” and can link her own words for the reason.
    Cassi Haggard recently posted…Breaking up with Vampire DiariesMy Profile

    • Kat Kennedy

      @Cassi Haggard: It’s definitely highly problematic for so many reasons. The utmost being that when you look at negative reviews through the eyes of a corporate function trying to appease customers – you stop looking at them as a craft’s person trying to improve their skillset.

      • Cassi Haggard
        Twitter:

        @Kat Kennedy: Also what happened to the “customer always being right” If you look at it from a corporate point of view you should never antagonize the customer. That’s the problem with her hotel analogy–she acts like she is the customer it be pleased in both examples. If she’s engaging the customer shouldn’t she be giving them freebies & improving their experience, not just badgering them into appeasing her obviously distorted ego?

    Wow, a lot of news this week!

    I have one of that respond-to-negative-reviews author’s books on my Kindle as it was a freebie but I’ve just deleted it now as I certainly can’t be bothered with that!

    That YA book covers chart is sad. That’s what I like about Emlyn Chand’s covers- her covers feature 1)a blind boy (well, I don’t think the model is really blind but still), 2) an Indian girl and 3) an African American girl- just like the characters in the books! :)

    I’m sort of baffled about the Sarah Cross post and can’t quite process it.

    And err WHAT is the drama you’re not telling us about?!
    Nicola recently posted…Cover Reveal + Giveaway : My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel HarrisMy Profile

  5. Fangs for the Fantasy

    It’s, sadly, no surprise about the covers. What bothers me is not just the general horredous erasure we see in portrayals – so many books contain nothing but straight, white characters (even in big, diverse cities, it’s still all erased) but even in books where there is some representation – even well done respresentation – publishers still push to have an erased cover. Just look at the Liar Liar drama – and the Rivers of London/Midnight Riot silhouette. Even when the authors actually do get it right and push for a decent representation – the publisher pushes back.

    CW accepted Vampire Diaries and Secret Circle… I am terrified at how bad that book must be. To be rejected

    Oh lordy, I’ve had authors reach out to me after a negative review – it has never ended well. The review is based on what I read – even if you have some wonderful clarification to add, I’m not going to change the review on the basis of extra-textual explanatory notes

    And if your “press” only publishes your own books – yeah, I’d consider that a self-pub

    And mooore drama to coem *gets popcorn*

    Awesome post as usual. I am really glad that you guys do this. A couple of weeks ago I dealt with some author drama of my own on Good Reads-nothing to this caliber but the author simply questioned my review. But because I read these posts I wasn’t caught as off guard as I would’ve been otherwise.

    It always makes me frown whenever I hear someone put down the genre. I know it’s pretty common place amongst the so called “literary” crowd, but most of these people haven’t picked up a YA book in their life.

    I was actually happy that The Selection wasn’t picked up. It made me have a higher opinion about TV executives, sad to think that they still think they can scrape it together as a midseason replacement. I don’t think it was either Ethan Peck or William Mosley’s fault it didn’t work the book was just heinous by itself where it really couldn’t be adapted into a television show unless some major changes were made. Because seriously, do they actually think they can make a show that will last multiple years on the premises of The Bachelor? Is Prince Maxton really going to make those poor girls wait eight years before he decides he doesn’t want to marry any of them and flees to Rio…..

      @Molly: I’m so sorry you had to deal with that! I’m glad your reading here provided some framework for the experience.

    Y’all rock it as usual. I’m so sad about all the death going around the writer/singer/actor world :(

    About ‘The Selection’ I think that last post is hilarious, I do wonder how bad it must have been to be rejected by CW — not saying they are so terrible, but they do experiment a lot more than most networks, probably because their ratings are so low.

      @Jenni @ Alluring Reads: If you go check out Smart Bitches, you will that Sarah Cross DID know about the scandal before. There’s further details and an email from Sarah over on their blog!

  9. Rose

    It still saddens me that both Maurice Sendak and Jean Craighead George are gone. I remember growing up reading quite many of their books. I didn’t know Carlos Fuentes by his work directly, but I knew of his influence. There have been so many people in the collective media/entertainment industry that have passed on as of late too, many I’ve grown up knowing and have respected for a long time. :(

    I thought Kate Hart’s post was brilliant and very well-researched.

    As for the drama – wow. Quite a bit going on this week. I knew about one of them, but the others (including Sarah Cross/TSS) I hadn’t. I’m thinking Cross didn’t know about what happened with TSS, but it’s hard to say.

    Great post ladies, thank you for staying on top of everything. It’s always a pleasure to read your updates.

      I have never read any books by Jean Craighead George – but her books sound fantastic.

  10. Beatriz

    I just love these articles. Good work! :D
    I adored the color distribution for covers… it’s very well done. I can’t imagine how long she spent doing it. And it’s actually sad how there’s almost 0% black and japanese models in YA covers. I mean, WHY? It makes no sense whatsoever. I get it that the book has a white main character, and so in the cover the model will have to be white, but still. This bothers me a LOT.

    And WHY, oh GOD, do these authors still think that behaving badly and freaking out about negative reviews is good? It’s getting old. If you don’t have the capacity to read a negative review and respect the reader and his/her opinion, then don’t publish your book in the first place -_-

    And not acting like a hater… but there are a lot of series that deserve to turn into a TV show a lot more than The Selection. The story is interesting and all that, but … uh. IDK. It’s just not strong enough.
    Looking forward the next article >.<

    RIP Jean Craighead George. :( My Side of the Mountain was one of my absolute favorites when I was a kid.

    And o_O at both the reviewer-badgering person and the totally-not-self-published one. Wow.

  12. Max C

    Personally, I think the reason why there are so many white characters for covers is because most of the major publishing companies are American-based, meaning the most of the authors would probably American since it would be easier to publish books. Logically, it would be easier to write a book from a perspective that you’re familiar with. Although I’m not published, I do dabble a bit with fiction, and I have to say I have a lot less trouble writing from a perspective a Filipino eleven-year-old than a perspective from a sixteen-year-old Canadian, since I am a Filipino too and I have never been to Canada in my life. It’s a bit weird though, considering how many different ethnics are around the world, and every book there’s a brunette. When I went abroad, sure, there were Caucasians, but there was a fair mix of Chinese, Indian, tourists, etc roaming the place. *shrugs* The trend will probably change though, in a couple of years, giving the increase of authors trying different perspectives. ^_^

      @Max C:

      Yeah, but America is a pretty diverse place consisting of various races and ethnicities. Part of being a writer is doing your research and convincing readers your characters are real people with real emotions. It’s like saying a female author can’t write from a male POV because she’s a female. That would be highly incorrect. It’s all about believability and a great author should be able to convince you of that regardless of gender or race.

  13. Mahala

    I do believe that M R Mathias misread that article, he must have thought it said small penis. And you can just tell he has one of those, too.

    Equally, the industry of nude art photography does have its rogues but when you pass the the boundary of lust and wonder, you can be left with a continuing desire to improve the artform of nude photography for the rest of your life. In fact DISH network has earned the accolade of being the sole television provider that offers more than 200 national channels in High Definition (HD) programming format. If your device is compatible, you will reap the benefits and amazing features they have to offer.
