Announcing the “Epic Journeys Tour” (and giveaway)!


THE BITTER KINGDOM is almost here! I’m so excited to finally be able to share the conclusion to the Fire & Thorns trilogy. (I wrote a trilogy! I can hardly believe it!!)

I’m just as excited to announce that I’ll be going on tour during THE BITTER KINGDOM’s release week along with author pal C.J. Redwine, whose novel DECEPTION releases the same day. We’ll be hitting four stores in the Midwest, from Nashville to Chicago.

Why are CJ and I going on tour together? Well, for one, our books come out on the exact same day from HarperCollins. For two, we like each others’ books. For three, we think hanging out together is a kick in the pants. We’re calling it The Epic Journeys Tour to reflect (slight spoiler…) what our characters endure in these books. Also, we’ll be journeying ourselves. Epically. And by “epically” I mean “by car.” That’s right, Internet, this is a ROAD TRIP. I imagine it will be a lot like Thelma & Louise. Except with less debauchery and death.

Don’t our books look nice together?

To celebrate, I’m giving away an advance reading copy of THE BITTER KINGDOM. Just fill out the form below. If you win, and you are interested, I’ll throw in the first two books of the series as well. CJ is giving away copies of DECEPTION at her site too, so be sure to go over there and check it out. Open to U.S. and Canada only, folks. (Sorry, international peeps. But I’m planning an international giveaway later, so stay tuned!)
