Two Weeks Till SISTERS’ FATE Giveaway!

Eep! It’s almost August!

SISTERS’ FATE comes out 2 weeks from today!!! I’ve gotten a finished copy and I WROTE A WHOLE TRILOGY, OMG.

We got a great review from Booklist which says, “Fans of the series will eat this one up—and will have much to discuss at the book’s conclusion.” 

And this is our second happy-making trade review, because Kirkus (known for being tough!) said, “…an explosive ending. Actions have real consequences…the fulfillment of the prophecy is dead on…The riveting, ambitious plot and strong, moral-yet-fallible heroine are a winning combination!”

If you’re in the DC area, I’ll be having a launch party at One More Page in Arlington, VA on Sat, Aug 16 at 6pm. If you’re not in the area and want to order a signed, personalized book, you can call them and we’ll do that! More info here.

I’ve been revealing a few excerpts, too:

At Ex Libris Kate, you can read a scene where Cate (understandably, I think!) loses her temper with Maura.

At Fic Fare, you can meet one of my favorite new characters in SISTERS’ FATE, newspaperman Alistair Merriweather (and an awesome review from Erin – thank you, Erin!).

At Adventures of a Book Junkie, you can see what happens when Cate sees Finn for the first time after…well, you know! And you can still enter to win an ARC!

There will be one more excerpt + ARC giveaway this week – I’ll post on Twitter, etc, when it’s up!

And here’s your last chance to win an ARC right here – along with an ARC of one of my favorite books this year, April Genevieve Tucholke’s BETWEEN THE SPARK AND THE BURN, which also comes out on August 14! It’s the sequel to BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP BLUE SEA, which I also loved – but if it’s possible, I loved this second book even MORE. I love the choices Violet makes – not always right, but always relatable. I love how the settings all function as characters, from Violet’s crumbling Maine mansion by the sea, the Citizen Kane, to a frightening town where the citizens are all glowed up and murderous, to the small island where they go hunting for a sea king, to a former bordello in the Colorado mountains. I love Neely, River’s hotheaded, laughing, sexy brother, and his relationship with River. Most of all, I love April’s wordsmithing. There are some authors that other authors fangirl over, and she’s one of mine. It seems like every word in this book has been chosen with such perfect care and fits just right to create the creepy-gorgeous atmosphere. There is a sense of lingering unease throughout – but mixed with a sort of cozy, bohemian, whimsical charm. I don’t know how she pulls it off, but I love it.

    Okay to be honest I haven't read the excerpts.. I have this thing where if I have already read a book in the trilogy I don't read the excerpts… I know I know I am a little bit crazy. But I already know I love this series and I don't want anything to be spoiled for me. I can't wait till I can finish the series and I can't wait till I can have all three book sitting side by side on my shelf!

    I've been dying for this last book. So excited. I should be finished Book of Life by Deborah Harkness by the time my ARC shows up! 🙂

  7. I probably should not have read the excerpts because I've been saving reading Star Cursed until JUST BEFORE Sisters' Fate comes out, but I couldn't help myself … I can't believe I lasted this long not finding out what happens to the girls! Thanks for the teasers 🙂

    I know this sounds bad, but I’m glad to see Cate get mad at Maura. It’s time for her to feel the consequences of her actions! I can’t wait!
