I had the honor of being interviewed by Rae over on her blog, A New Look on Books! A couple things we chat about: being an English major, why I think self-discovery is so important in YA lit, and a little teaser from The Queen’s Rising. You can check it out here: Interview with Rae

Three years ago to the day, I had started to draft this book, not knowing where it was going to lead me. All I knew was that I really liked Brienna, and I wanted to know what ended up happening to her. Little did I realize that Brienna was going to take me on an grand adventure, perhaps the greatest adventure of my life, a path that wound beyond words on the page.

Today, my author copies of The Queen’s Rising arrived. I honestly can’t even describe how it feels, to hold the hardback copy of your book for the first time. I feel immense gratitude for the people–my family and friends, my incredible agent and editor, my entire publishing team–who got me here. I am humbled, excited, struck equally with disbelief and wonder. It is like catching my breath only to lose it again, in the best of ways.

And I cannot believe this is mine, that I have finally reached such a moment. I liken it to seeing a little piece of your heart out in the open, bound by paper and ink. It is terrifying as it is glorious, to know that while my name is on the cover, this book is no longer wholly mine. It also belongs to you, dear reader. It belongs to the amazing people who have come behind me, supported me, and invested in this story.

And the book…well, it is absolutely gorgeous. (Disclaimer: I might be biased, but still…everything about it is lovely).

Here’s a little preview. And you can pick up your own copy Tuesday February 6!


Oh! And one of the best things about the finished copy? The pages smell absolutely divine.

I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Janet for her amazing blog, My Book Abyss!

Hello friends! I honestly cannot believe that my book is hitting shelves in exactly ONE MONTH FROM TODAY! I vividly remember the day I sold it to HarperCollins (way back when on October 1, 2015). So many months have come and gone since then, and it feels a little surreal to me now, that in 30 days TQR will be on shelves and available. I’m honestly just sitting here, humbled and excited and ready to share Brienna’s story with you all!

For close to a year now, I’ve been mulling over preorder campaign ideas, and I am thrilled to reveal my campaign with everyone today (if you signed up for my newsletter, you got an early sneak peek). This is my way as the author to thank you for preordering my book, because your support truly means the world to me and I want to give something back to you. I have designed this campaign so everyone will receive something. But you are also entered in the drawing for two other bigger prizes.

So without further ado…

Everyone who preorders will receive a signed bookplate, a bookmark, and two stickers *

Three randomly chosen winners will receive a signed bookplate, a book mark, two stickers, and this beautiful artwork of the queen that I had commissioned by the amazing Jenna Kass.

One randomly chosen grand prize winner will receive a signed bookplate, bookmark, two buttons, the art print of the queen, two custom candles made by Novelly Yours that tie into TQR, a starry notebook designed by Nikki Strange, a star card case from Anthropologie, and a constellation necklace made by Sea Salt Shop!

If you have preordered my book, or plan to before February 6, all you need to do is email me at In the subject of the email, please put “Preorder for TQR” and then make sure you include your name and mailing address. Also, please upload a copy of your receipt for proof of purchase.

This campaign is open to international readers!

*I have a lot of swag, but Tier 1 is only while my supplies last. So make sure you sign up soon if you plan to participate in the campaign!

Thank you again so much for your support! Here’s to 2018!
