Calling all readers and bloggers who loved The Queen’s Rising!

I am so excited to announce that I am creating a Street Team for The Queen’s Resistance! I have 20 spots open for fans who loved The Queen’s Rising and want to help me celebrate and spread the word about the release of The Queen’s Resistance on March 5.

But first, what is a Street Team? A Street Team is a group of fans who help an author spread the word about their book. This can be anything from posting about it on social media to requesting the book at your local library to writing reviews to hosting giveaways. There are many different ways an author can organize a Street Team, but the heart of the concept is to unite fans to raise awareness and love and excitement for their book.

I have four things I would like my Street Team to help me with:

1. Post something on your social media related to either The Queen’s Rising or the The Queen’s Resistance (this can be anything from a quote graphic, a picture of the map, a regram of any of my pictures, etc.)

2. Request The Queen’s Resistance at your local bookstore and/or library

3. Post a picture on your social media of The Queen’s Rising and/or The Queen’s Resistance with the swag I send you when it arrives

4. Post a picture of The Queen’s Resistance during publication week (pub date is March 5)

If you loved The Queen’s Rising and are eager and ecstatic and excited for The Queen’s Resistance and want to help me spread the word with these four things, then I would absolutely LOVE for you to sign up for the Street Team!

What You’ll Receive From Me:

I’ve created a gift for each one of my Street Team members, as a way to thank you for sharing posts about The Queen’s Resistance on your social media and requesting my book at your local library/bookstore. This gift provides you with some beautiful swag to enjoy and you can also utilize it to spread the word about The Queen’s Resistance. Here is what you will receive from me:

1. Two character portraits. One of Brienna and one of Cartier, made by artist Yara Noë
