Happy Book Birthday, Beth Revis!!!!!!!

You guys! Today is a very special day!

Today, the final book in Beth Revis’s amazing ACROSS THE UNIVERSE series, SHADES OF EARTH, is finally on shelves!!!


This book. This series. My feelings. Beth’s epicness.

It’s a widely known fact that I love Beth, and I love these books, and I’m so thrilled for her, and so honored that I get to spend release day celebrating with her IN PERSON!

That’s right, we’ll be in Morganton, NC this afternoon (4-7pm) to help launch the final installment in the series*, along with epic authors Megan Miranda, Jessica Khoury, and Alexandra Duncan (and there will be copies of THE ARCHIVED there! My first event for it!)

You should all come, but if you can’t, be sure to wish Beth a very happy book birthday on Twitter (@bethrevis).

AND to celebrate SHADES OF EARTH’s release, I’m going to give away a signed copy from today’s event!!! Pretty cool, right?

Want to win, right?

To enter, simply leave a comment below, and make sure I have some way of contacting you! The contest will run till 9PM EST on Friday!

Lastly, if spending release day with Beth and giving away a signed book wasn’t cool enough, Beth was awesome enough to make a MAKING HISTORY video for you all!

Watch, enter to win, and don’t forget to shower Beth in release day sparkles!

    The idea of finding something significant in what others may regaurd as the mundane is just one of the skills of a writer. Happy Birthday, Beth!

  8. I. Heart. This. Video. And this writer! I also recall my first moment reading The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. My mother saw the witch on the cover and said, “That book is evil! Put it down.” As a conservative Christian, witches weren’t permissible. When I explained that the book was an allegory (long before knowing and obsessing over C.S. Lewis’ vast body of work), I felt so much smarter than before.

    Thanks Beth and Victoria!

    That was awesome! Congrats to you both for your new releases. The moment Beth describes in her video is such a great moment that I think all of us have experienced at least once. It is such a great feeling when those thoughts wash over you… that there is more.

    You said “a whole nother” lol 😉

    I love your “moment of truth – ish” kind of thing! I’ve never actually read any of C.S. Lewis’ books, but it sure changed your perspective on reading a book! That’s fantastic, Ms. Revis 🙂

    Thank you so much for the giveaway! And Victoria – you rock! ^_^
