Udder Maddness

It’s Valentines day, and what’s the best way to spend it? Why, making people as miserable as you are! Annoying authors is something that we here at Cuddlebuggery do a lot. Sometimes it feels like a mission statement that permeates everything we do. Turns out that it’s not so hard to do, and not in the way you think. Sure, you think writing negative reviews would make this list, but it doesn’t. Because many authors are totally cool about you writing your opinions on their book. But doing one of the following? You’re likely to start ticking them off.

1. Asking authors for ARCs.

This is a fabulous way to annoy an author! Not only because they will almost always be the wrong person to ask (if they’re traditionally published) but because you’re basically asking them to pay out of their own pocket, in order to send you a free book.

Today along with YA Books Central, we have the pleasure of revealing FORBIDDEN by Kimberley Griffiths Little. And for the record, the cover is awesome, however, perhaps you’re wondering what her cover could have looked like if Kat designed it? Let your wonder become reality and check out these adorable rejects with commentary from Kimberly on why they would work or totally-no-get-it-away-from-me. Then check out the real cover and enter the giveaway!

 

I’m stealing your tagline for my book because Yes, it all is!! The big fancy cars, the huge mansion, and the million dollars I deserve for just being me—and it’s all locked up. The Outrage! But on a positive note, I love this cover’s image. If only that was a skeleton key that opened up a door to everything I’d ever dreamed of, we’d be set. It does remind me of a couple of Middle-Grade books I’ve written for Scholastic that have a strong influence with keys so I found it very interesting that you used a mysterious key .

Split Second

5 Reasons I Can’t Believe You’re Reading This When You Could Be Reading Split Second:

1. Trevor.

Trevor is amazing. He’s one of those all-around super-fantastic, incredibly nice guy book boyfriends (you know, the Levis and Hectors and Tuckers and have I mentioned how much I love this trend?) He’s kind of the best thing ever and should be enough to pick up the book right there.

2. Addie.

Oh Addie, sweet Addie. She’s just so damn nice. I can’t figure it out, she’s no where near the level of BAMF as my general favorite heroines (Cath and probably 100 others I’m not thinking of at the moment excluded) but there’s something about her that gets under your skin and makes you want to snuggle her up and smite anyone who hurts her with the fiery vengeance of a thousand suns.

Once Addie let someone in, she was impossible to forget.

I’m stuck for a post today, so here’s 10 things you might not have known about Steph and I.  This post was inspired by Blythe’s post because we are lazy, unoriginal bastards.

Kat:

1) I can play piano, violin and viola.

2) I am have been an anime fan since I was 6.

3) I almost became a professional gymnast.

4) At one point I could speak 4 languages. Now I can barely speak 1. *sadface*

5) I can knit, crochet, long stitch, cross stitch, embroider and make tapestries. I can’t sew. How did this happen?

6) The first career I ever wanted was as a palaeontologist but I decided not to pursue it at the age of 13 because I figured that there must be a limitation on the number of fossils that could be dug up, and therefor it wasn’t a sustainable career choice. I was a weird kid.
