Yay! It’s less than three months until BORN WICKED’s release!
To celebrate, I’m giving away an extra-special, one-of-a-kind ARC. My friend and critique partner Jaclyn Dolamore has sketched in the margins, pics of Cate and the other characters. IT IS SO COOL. I’m really tempted to keep it for myself, honestly, but instead I’m going to give it to one of you!
I’m also giving away a hardcover of Jackie’s newest book, BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY. It’s one of my favorites this year, as you can tell from my review:
Esmerine is a siren, but since her winged childhood friend Alan first introduced her to books, she’s yearned for adventures in the world above the sea. When her sister goes missing, she puts on legs and enlists Alan’s help to find Dosia. Which world does Esmerine belong in? I wrote on Twitter that this book reminds me of a fantasy L.M. Montgomery. The world-building is rich, full of delicious little details about what everyone’s wearing and eating, and Esmerine is a feisty, likable protagonist. This is exactly the sort of lovely little book I would have adored in middle school. Also: how pretty is that cover?
There are other exciting things going on in BORN WICKED land. Penguin is shooting the book trailer this week. They’re really excited about it, and so am I! I got to see a sneak peek, and it’s AMAZING! Really, it is very strange and thrilling to see actors playing characters who wore born in my brain. I can’t wait to be able to share it with you guys.
Also, a reminder: if you would like to request an ARC of BORN WICKED, please contact Penguin at yrmarketing(at)us(dot)penguingroup(dot)com. If you’d like to ask me to do an interview or guest blog post, or just let me know what you think of the book (I’m so excited to hear from readers!), the best way to get in touch is emailing me at cahillwitch(at)gmail(dot)com.
The contest will be open until next Thursday, November 16, at noon. International entries are welcome. All you have to do is leave me a comment below, but I’d love it if you’d help me spread the word on Twitter or Facebook:
