Unbound_Cover-Reveal

Hello, lovelies!

I’m currently revising two books at once right now (don’t do this, it’s the worst idea ever, even worse than that horrible cinnamon challenge) so I’ll have to keep this brief, but today marks 9 weeks until THE UNBOUND hits shelves! And that means it’s time to kick this countdown off!

Here’s how it works: every week, I post a teaser video. You simply watch, comment, and someone will win :) Next week, repeat.

Here’s the first video:

May the odds be EVER in your favor.

PS. Nashvillians! I will be working at Parnassus Books on Saturday from 2-3pm as part of the Indies First campaign! Come by! Say hello! Grab a book and a hug.

THE UNBOUND is up on Netgalley!!! Here’s what you need to know.

Hello, lovelies!!

As of TODAY, the first 8 chapters of THE UNBOUND (the sequel to THE ARCHIVED) are up on Netgalley. They are auto-approved, which means all you have to do is click the READ NOW button and the pages are yours (and no, they don’t end on a massive cliffhanger moment).

Click here to go to the Netgalley page!!

NOW. Maybe you don’t want to stop at 100 pages. Maybe you want to read the WHOLE BOOK? Well, today’s your lucky day.

Disney*Hyperion and I hold these special little widgets, and they give you access to the FULL E-ARC of the book. How do you win one of these special little widgets? Well, you spread the word. On Twitter. On Facebook. On Tumblr. We are running three SEPARATE giveaways.

ON TWITTER: Tweet about the Netgalley sample and giveaway using the hashtag #TheUnbound. I will post a tweet on Twitter that you can RT, or you can come up with your own. just make sure it has the hashtag.

ON FACEBOOK: Like Victoria “V.E.” Schwab on Facebook, then post a link to the Netgalley page, and include my name in the post so I can see it. (And, preferably, mention the giveaway.)

ON TUMBLR: Go HERE, and re-post the post. That’s all you have to do to enter!

All three giveaways will run from TODAY, November 7th, through 10pm EST, November 8th!

Ready, set, GO!

SO. MUCH. VICIOUS. NEWS.

Announcing the VICIOUS prequel short story, WARM UP!!!

While I was over in Scotland, I had the chance to write a short story! My first official one. My editor and I wanted to give readers a glimpse into the world of VICIOUS without spoiling anything from the book, and WARM UP was born! The full pitch for WARM UP will go live closer to the story’s release on Tor.com this August, but in the meantime, check out the gorgeous cover art. The amazing art director over at Tor, Irene Gallo, was able to get my cover illustrator, Victo Ngai, to do the art!!

VICIOUS is now up on Netgalley!

Well, let me be clear, 115 pages of VICIOUS are up on Netgalley! If you want to get a taste of the book, wet your feet, whet your appetite, whatever turn of phrase you like, hop on over and request!

Also it will make my heart happy. Like, really happy. And happy hearts are more likely to give away goodies.

Also also I KNOW it’s only 115 pages. I know. We went through this with THE ARCHIVED, but lovelies, we saw such a marked difference in sales, and Tor and I want to make sure people go buy the book so that I can, you know, have the chance to write more books. AND if you don’t want to read the preview because you’d rather read the whole thing in September, that’s totally fine, too. I just want to make sure that the people who WANT a sneak peek have that option!

If you’re on the fence at all–I know I have a lot of YA readers who aren’t sure what I sound like writing as V.E.–I highly encourage you to try the sample! It’s a really good indicator.

And to everyone, it would make me so happy if you hit REQUEST over on Netgalley, and/or spread the word about it being up there. The publishers, they watch these kinds of things.

DID YOU KNOW…if you pre-order VICIOUS, you get trading cards?

It’s true! If you pre-order VICIOUS and email proof to viciousveschwab at gmail dot com, a gorgeous complete set of trading cards–yes, including the author card–will arrive in the mail! This opportunity will run all the way up to release, but the online price of the book might go up, so keep that in mind!
