Claudia Gray is my new BFF!!!!

In keeping with my new Full Disclosure Policy, I have news. Let me repeat: I. HAVE. NEWS!!!

That’s right, Claudia Gray (the amazing author of EVERNIGHT and STARGAZER)…

(yes, that Claudia Gray, right there)

...has decided to blurb THE BODY FINDER!!!!!!!

So, alongside Melissa Marr’s brilliant quote, now there will also be Claudia’s dazzling words:

"You'll be drawn in by the love story -- and kept up all night by the suspense." – Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of STARGAZER

OMG…YAY, right?!?!? Can I tell you how squishy I feel inside?

Claudia, I think I may be in love with you!

Seriously, how weird would it be if I open-mouthed kissed her when I saw her again??? Too much? Okay, so maybe a nice thank you note instead...

Let's be friends so I can brag about how I knew you when. Come on ... I've never known anyone famous! NO?! Fine, I'll conference stalk you, then. :o)

Seriously, that's flippin' amazing. Congrats!!

Lisa and Laura said...

Ok, when do you start raffling off ARC's lady because I will stop at nothing to be able to read your book as soon as humanly possible.

You are amazing and I'm going to brag to everyone who will listen about my famous author friend who makes lewd comments on my blog as soon as your book is published.

P.S.
I'm totally voting for the open mouthed kiss. I mean you're pretty hot and it can't hurt, right?

Leigh said...

I'm with Lisa and Laura...go for the kiss or maybe just a hug and a little goose on the butt. I mean, srsly, a blurb like that deserves some love.

Kimberly Derting said...

jessjordan - Of course we'll be friends, I thought we established that with the whole "dude" conversation!

LiLa - Lewd? Me? Oh, and check out jessjordan (was that a list I saw?)...*backs away carefully*

Leigh - Why didn't I think of the goose? It's more subtle than the kiss yet still bold enough to get my point across. Well played, Leigh...well played!

Kimberly Derting said...

Shelli - I almost completely ignored you. Serious OMG!!!!!!!!!

jessjordan said...

What? No, there was no list!

Little Ms J said...

Ok, so I'm voting for the open mouth kiss. I want you to wear a trucker hat while you do it, maybe a little Old Spice for good measure. THAT is my trucker image!

Congrats lady!

PS - I met Claudia at Algonquin in NYC. I think I may have told you that. She's super nice. And she likes calamari. Maybe you should mail some to her as a thank you gift. OR - you could take her out for drinks and say "Calamari" at the same time and go, "Ohmygod, we are so alike!" and then kiss her. Have the trucker hat in your purse.

Yes. I like my plan.

Kimberly Derting said...

jessjordan - If that's the way you want to play it, then I didn't see it either. *whistles innocently* Nothing to see here...

LMJ - I am crying-laughing. I have got to get me a trucker hat! But I'd probably just sit there all night saying "Calamari" as I wait for her to say it too, until she just thinks I'm REAAALLLY slow. And sad. And all lady-truckery.

Nice touch with the Old Spice, though. Way to have my back!

PJ Hoover said...

So cool, Kimberly! This is awesome!

Cannot wait to read your book!

Donna Gambale said...

Congrats! I'm thinking one day soon you'll be the NYT besteselling author writing a blurb for some lucky writer!

Kelly H-Y said...

Too funny! And, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Kimberly Derting said...

Thanks you guys! ;)

Patti said...

I agree with Jess. You have a great cover and now two blurbs from two great writers. Congratulations.

Tam said...

Kim, you rock! Congrats! ...and don't even get me started on the kiss...

Kimberly Derting said...

Haha, Tam! What happens in SI, stays in SI (or something like that)!!!
