Before I start gushing, let me just lay them out for you so you don't think I'm overreacting:
"With this laughing, shrieking riot of a debut, Carrie Harris captured my heart...and my braaaaiins."-Andrea Cremer, NYT bestselling author of NIGHTSHADE
"Kate Grable is my new hero. Thanks to Harris's darkly funny, twisted, and sexy tale of high school drama gone un-deadly wrong, I know who I'm calling during the next zombie apocalypse. Science nerds have never been so cool."-Kiersten White, NYT bestselling author of PARANORMALCY
"BAD TASTE IN BOYS is a nonstop romp, with more mayhem than a mall full of mocha-chugging monkeys. I loved watching Kate try to keep her sensible, scientific head amidst rampaging zombies and amorous football players (often the same people). Bring me my next dose of Carrie Harris NOW!"-Jeri Smith-Ready, award-winning author of SHADE
Shocked, I tell you. SHOCKED. So shocked, in fact, that I've been sitting here blankly trying to think of something witty to say. I'm speechless.
So let me just say this--I am so flattered and astounded and thrilled to be blurbed by these women. They're not only so talented they make my teeth hurt, but they're genuinely NICE PEOPLE. As I get closer to my debut, I'm realizing that the biggest commodity a writer has is TIME. You've got so many demands on it, and so much to do, and it is quite physically impossible to do it all. So THANK YOU Jeri, Kiersten, and Andrea for gifting me with some of your time. Of course I'm glad that you liked the book. Beyond glad, in fact. But the fact that you took time away from all your awesomeness to read and recommend BTIB? Priceless.
There's no way to repay that kind of thing, but I have dreams that someday I'll be able to blurb THEM and have it mean something. I think I'd say the following:
On NIGHTSHADE:Note to those who haven't read these books: Ren is a werewolf. Zachary is a cute boy with an accent. Tasey is a pink sparkly taser.
"Ren is ALL MINE." - Carrie Harris, slightly insane author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS
"Zachary is ALL MINE." - Carrie Harris, highly delusional author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS
"Tasey is ALL MINE." - Carrie Harris, possibly extraterrestrial author of BAD TASTE IN BOYS
Second note to those who haven't read these books: WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? GET THEE HENCE AND START READING!
This is the part where I'm supposed to put a witty close, but all I can do is say THANK YOU one more time and gape.
