Coming this Fall - a tawdry tale

On sale November 2nd.
Like real cupcakes, I don't think I'll be able to resist this book:
Sure, cupcakes are all sweet when they’re all dolled up for birthday parties, but what happens when the wrapper comes off? This deliciously funny book gives you a behind-the-scenes look at the wild and tawdry lives of Desperate Cupcakes. You’ll meet insecure cupcakes like Sally, who wraps herself in bacon to bring the sizzle back into her relationship. Follow these cupcakes to the dark side as they experience sugar rushes and crashes, succumb to snack attacks, and engage in ill-advised activities (like riding with the Hells Angel Cakes.) You’ll delve into their fears, their woes, and their fierce suspicion of muffins. Ultimately, you’ll discover how truly difficult it is to be everyone’s favorite dessert.
I suspected a competitive relationship between cupcakes & muffins, but never "fierce suspicion."

BTW - Last day to enter to win one of three copies of the perfect late summer read "One Day" by David Nicholls.

I'm not so hot about this one. haha
What's to suspect about a muffin unless it's not in my mouth.

Muffins can be so goody goody. Bran, low fat, high fiber etc. I guess it's only to be expected that they would cause some cupcakes (especially those with self-esteem issues) to wonder.
