Fierce Creatures (and other fun news)

The Official Cover of Shadow and Bone was revealed this week!

News has been leaking all week about this summer’s Fierce Reads tour, so I’m now free to make a SPECIAL OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT THAT REQUIRES TRUMPETS. *cue trumpets*

This June, I’ll be hitting the road with a whole bevvy of Mac Kids authors for a big ol’ book tour! Prepare yourself, America.

Appearing at all of the dates, will be the Fierce Four: Anna Banks (Of Poseidon), Emmy Laybourne (Monument 14), and Jennifer Bosworth (Struck). 

We’ll be joined at various stops by special guests Marissa Meyer (Cinder) and Jessica Brody (52 Reasons to Hate My Father, My Life Undecided). (At which point, we become the Fearsome Five or the Unalliterative But Still Enthralling Six.)

Tour dates, times, and details below. Make sure to “like” the Fierce Reads page on Facebook for updates. (And I’ll also be doing a few events and cons by my lonesome, so do drop by the events page of my fancy new web site for more info.)

1. There’s still time to enter to win an ARC of Shadow and Bone on The Story Siren!

2. As mentioned above, a few weeks ago I quietly launched my new site, It was designed and built by the amazing Denise Biondo who I cannot recommend highly enough, and if you pop by the World of the Grisha section, you’ll discover lots of fun new content.

3. And finally, in case you doubted that I wouldn’t find someplace to wear that feather headdress, behold:

See? It’s already paying for itself. Never call me frivolous again.

  1. STFU!!! Village Books in Bellingham is my local bookstore. I don’t even have to drive to Seattle!! See you there!

    So so excited for you and all you’ve accomplished. I can’t wait to buy your book. Congratulations!

  2. Aw, thank you for saying that! And hooray!! I’m so psyched that we’re coming right to you!

  3. I will be at the Bellingham stop if I have to bust through the border guard.

  4. Do not let them stop you! Viva la revolucion! (I may have gotten off topic…)

  5. Yay! I’m determined to get to Books of Wonder when you’re there. I’ve been trying to have an excuse to get there anyway.

    Also, ❤ the new blog. 🙂

  6. Sounds like it’s going to be a fun tour! I should *hopefully* make it to the Copperfield’s event,

    Congrats on the great cover! 🙂

    How could I have ever doubted that you’d find a place to wear that headdress.

  8. Me too!! Can’t wait to meet you, Jen 😀

  9. Sounds great. Hope you have a lot of fun. Love your new website and in case I haven’t said this already, amazing cover. It’s great that they included the onion domes that are always associated with Russia 🙂
