Hey there, lovelies.
A DARKER SHADE OF MAGIC just came out in paperback this week, and it’s hard to believe we’re little more than a month away from the sequel hitting shelves!!
It’s also hard to believe that Tor is sending me on my first ever official, national tour.
This post will serve, as the subject suggests, as a source of EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW.
First, the official tour schedule on my site looks like this:

Onto some FAQ:
*All answers are about my personal preferences and don’t apply to all authors.*
NOTE: Most bookstores understandably require you to buy at least one book at the event, but it doesn’t have to be mine (I am signing with some AMAZING authors), and I am more than happy to sign as many books as you bring with you, too.
NOTE: Please don’t record an event without asking.
NOTE: I often get asked if people can bring me things (it’s a very sweet gesture), and while I LOVE presents, I will ask that you please don’t bring homemade treats. My favorite things, if you’re so inclined, are: fanart, dark chocolate peanut butter cups, hugs.
NOTE: I am more than happy to take photographs!
NOTE: The thing about authors to remember is that we’re as scared of you as you are of us. Don’t fret about being nervous, or awkward. We are nervous and awkward and most certainly not judging you.
