June Updatery


A couple of newsworthy items:

Item 1: I finished book 2 of the Fire & Thorns trilogy, titled The Crown of Embers. Wooo! I’m very excited about this book. Without giving any spoilers, I’ll just say that it has lots of political machinations, adventure, and smooching.

Item 2: The Girl of Fire and Thorns will be published in France and Turkey! I’ll post publication dates when I know them.

That’s all for now. Wish me luck as I start work on book 3, The Bitter Kingdom.


BEA Update


So many of you have asked if I’m attending BookExpo America this year. It sounds AWESOME, but no, I won’t be going. The most important thing on my plate right now is finishing The Crown of Embers (almost there!). But I hear there may be a limited number of ARCs of The Girl of Fire and Thorns available. So if you’re interested, be sure to visit the HarperCollins booth early.

Thanks, everyone, for asking. Have a great time for me too, and take lots of pictures!

New website and Blue Heaven


Hey, I have a new home here at raecarson.com! Have a look around and let me know what you think.

This week I’m at the Blue Heaven Novel Writing Workshop at an undisclosed island location. *acts mysterious* I’ll be showing the first draft of THE CROWN OF EMBERS to a group of friends and getting feedback. Wish me luck!



Hi! I’m Rae Carson, and I write novels about teens who must do brave things. This site is about to get a MAJOR overhaul, so please pardon the dust. Lots of cool content is coming. But for now, check out the cover for THE GIRL OF FIRE AND THORNS on the left. Thanks, Greenwillow Books, for giving me such a great cover!

Feel free to poke around the site. More soon!
