Announcing the DIGITAL LONDONS tour!!!



In A Darker Shade of Magic (which comes out on February 24th!!) my heroes, Kell and Lila, flit through magical doors to visit three very different versions of London: There’s Red London, which flourishes with life and magic; Grey London, which has no magic but one very mad King; and White London, where people fight to control magic and the magic fights back.

While each of these three cities if full of its own twists, turns, and secrets—they are also full of blogs! Yes, each city is home to some very special blogs and I’ll be embarking on a whirlwind tour through all of them starting on February 17th. And since, as Kell and Lila learn, it’s dangerous to linger, I’ll only have time to answer one question at each stop (though a small cup of tea might also be imbibed—I will be in a London, after all).

Want to follow me on this mad dash? Check out the schedule below! And know this: some blogs will be giving away a prize package of a copy of A Darker Shade of Magic and a double-sided poster (signed by me!) that features the US and UK covers.

You can also track me through twitter!

Countdown to THE UNBOUND. 9 weeks. 9 videos. 9 giveaways.


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.
