#PubCrawl 2013: Aspiring Authors Q&A

Who: Me and Hannah from The Irish Banana (She'll be covering the Blogger side of things)

What: Pub Crawl 2013 (#PubCrawl2013)

Where: New York City Publishing Houses

When: Thursday, October 17, 2013 - ALL.DAY.LONG! (Seriously, it will be dark when we leave and dark when we get home again.)

Why: My birthday was last week and this is what I wanted to do to celebrate. Aside from eating cake, of course, which I did. PLUS, as a reader and an aspiring author, I'm curious about the behind the scenes of the publishing world, the brick and mortar, the cubicles and the post-it notes. 

The seed for this idea was really planted waaaay back at BEA2013 during the Harlequin Teen breakfast when I met Executive Editor, Nataysha Wilson and she was like, "Let me know if you're ever in NYC, we'd love to have you stop by." 

So, a few weeks later when Hannah and I were having dinner at Panera to discuss CampNaNo-ish things, I was like, "We should see if we can bounce around to the different publishers and ask them questions and stuff. It could be like a pub crawl but without the hangover the next day." And because Hannah gets me, she really, really gets me, she was like, "I'm on it!" And she was.

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
