Where did the summer go? Let’s hold on to it for a bit longer by celebrating stories with some fantastic deals on ebooks on Kindle and nook!
Purchase one of these 8 titles and get an advance reader copy of one of our upcoming fall titles for FREE.
See details here.
And – drumroll, please – the cover for Diana Wallach Rodriguez’ first book in her Mirror, Mirror trilogy of short stories as part of our Mythology High line in buzzTeen. Narcissistic? Yep. Time for a selfie!
This fall, readers who fell in love with Supernatural Hunters Jaz and Blake in PROM DATES TO DIE FOR and SOMETHING WICKED get a full dose of kick-butt awesomeness in Kelly Parra’s novella, SUPERNATURAL HUNTERS.
At Buzz, we get a lot of input on covers from our authors – especially in terms of direction. Kelly provided us with notes on landmarks and details she thought might work well for a cover, including a cemetery and the color purple. We stumbled across a spooky cemetery picture, did some magic in Photoshop to recolor it and voila! While so many YA covers feature people (or parts of people), we liked the idea of showing ambiance without the need to show people in this one. We hope readers will be drawn to it.
Now available in trade paperback and ebook.

NEXT LEFT has been called “witty and well-written” and “romantic and charming.” See all the Amazon reviews here.
Reviewers said of SOMETHING NEW: “It had a multi generational theme that kept me glued the kindle all weekend” and “full of heart and hope.” See all the reviews here.

If you missed our 2013 line-up check out our last post. We’re thrilled with what’s coming this year!
The temperature has dropped to a chilly 52 degrees here at the Hive with a grey sky perfect for staying inside and cuddling up with a creepy Halloween read. Our launch week for SOMETHING WICKED has taken us all over the blogosphere as we’re featuring our six authors featured in the anthology. Be sure and visit their pages for a different treat at each stop. That includes winning a Living Dead doll from Heather Dearly and a big party pack from Buzz Books. Send in your receipt by Sunday and remember to let us know where you’ve shared it, too. (See last week’s post for all the links you’ll need.) Today Lena Brown is giving away a copy of the Legend of Sleepy Hollow over on her alter ego Malena Lott’s blog (and a just for fun Pimp My Pumpkin video.)
We’re also a bit jazzed about Lucie Smoker’s SWARM debut of her crime novel, DISTORTION coming 10/30. That’s sooo close that we thought you’d want to start getting to know Lucie, her thought on writing a murder mystery and more about her interesting cast of characters. Special thanks to the Science Museum for letting us shoot in their crime alley.
And that’s not all (why do I feel like a game show host when I say that?) – we have the cover for Lucie’s short story “Retribution” which will be published in a couple of weeks as a companion to DISTORTION.
Our #FreeBee this week is Lucie’s short story, so tweet that you want it and include @buzzbooksusa and we’ll pick a winner on Sunday.
