The Winner's Curse

We are so excited to be the final stop on The Winner’s Curse blog tour today. As many already know, Kat and I were lucky enough to read it early last year and were completely blown away. It still remains one of our stand out reads of 2013. If there is one book that you have to get this year, let it be this one.

We asked Marie to talk a little about writing romance and since she’s naturally awesome beyond reason, she went above and beyond. Check out her guest post on her first experiences reading romance–complete with bodice rippers–and the advice she gave herself while writing The Winner’s Curse.


“Writing Romance”

I’ll tell you a secret.

Sometime between when I was in junior high and high school, I noticed that my mom would swap romance novels with both of my grandmothers. One grandmother enjoyed Harlequin romances:

My other grandmother tended to deliver black garbage bags full of fat historical romance novels with lots of “love scenes.”

(How do those flowers stay in her hair?

Honor's Knight by Rachel Bach

Hey guuuuuuyyyss? Remember a few weeks ago when I told you about this totally amazeballs SciFi book starring one of the BAMFiest BAMFs in BAMFland? I’m sure you all immediately ran out and grabbed a copy because I totally wouldn’t have used my super-special this-book-is-the-best-you-don’t-want-to-miss-it Sherlock gif on just any book.

If you didn’t, you should probably go and do it now because Honor’s Knight is coming out next week AND SERIOUSLY YOU GUYS YOU WANT TO BE READING THIS SERIES.


Maybe you’re one of those people that doesn’t like to get into a series until it’s completed. I understand, I do. What if it doesn’t live up to it’s original glory? What if you fall in love and then there’s a terrible cliffhanger and you’re stuck in agony waiting AN ENTIRE YEAR (seriously, can we apply the Netflix method to everything) for the next book?

These are legitimate fears but let me put your minds at rest: the Paradox series is definitely not going downhill and while there is a biiiit of a wait for the trilogy’s conclusion, it comes out April 22nd and I am fully confident you guys can handle it.

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 .
