Off to Tour I Go

I know I've been quiet this past couple of weeks. This is because I am totally swamped with book launches and book tours. My inbox is like a battlefield.

Today (in a few minutes, actually) I am off to New York City, to start the big leg of my tour. My bags are packed, I'm ready to go. . .)

Happy Birthday BOUNDLESS!

The day has arrived!

BOUNDLESS is out wherever books are sold!

I'm in curlers right now, and I've just ironed my launch party clothes, and am soon going to meet up with Brodi Ashton (Happy Birthday EVERBOUND!!!!!) to spend the day in blissful preparation for our launch party at 7 at the King's English! There may be a manicure involved. And a sneak to a bookstore to see with wondering eyes our books upon the shelves.

Happy sigh.

I've got a lot to do today, but for now I just want to thank everybody who helped make this happen. Erica. Katherine. John. Catherine. You know who you are. Thank you!

Basically what I'm feeling is this:



Happy reading, y'all!

On Tour

As I write this, we're 1 day and 22 hours 26 minutes from the launch of BOUNDLESS. WHEEEEEEEEEE!

I am so excited to share this book with you!

Anyway, tomorrow I am heading off to Utah, where on Tuesday I will be having an awesome LAUNCH PARTY / SIGNING / EVENT with the amazing and talented Brodi Ashton, whose book EVERBOUND (book 2 of the Everneath series) is coming out the same day as BOUNDLESS. Brodi is a kindred spirit and a good friend of mine, so I can think of nothing better than us having our book launches together. Here's the skinny: The King's English, SLC, Tuesday 1-22, 7pm. Be there.

And then we'll be headed off to Idaho together to do it all over again in Idaho Falls. We'll be doing a barage of school visits in Idaho Falls and then a launch / signing / event at the Idaho Falls Barnes & Noble on Friday night, the 25th, at 6:30 p.m.

And THEN we're driving across the state to Boise to do an event at Hyde Park Bookstore at 4pm on Saturday!

See my facebook page for invites and details to all of these events, and my Events tab above for all the other great places I will be stopping by this winter and spring. Hopefully I can catch up with you somewhere!

1 day 22 hours 21 minutes! Squee!

One Week to Go!

One week until BOUNDLESS!

I am now under the ever-pounding waves of pre-launch preparation: designing this season's bookmarks and patches (oh yes, there will be Unearthly patches again this year, Team Tucker or Team Christian!), making sure all my tour clothes fit, picking nail polish colors, filling out the seemingly-never-ending flow of interviews and guest posts, signing copies for other people's giveaways, checking that my Sharpie supply is adequate. You know, author stuff. It's fun. Really. Mostly.

So, a few orders of business to go over. First:


The trailer is here! The trailer is here! I love it!


*Does a little happy dance!*

This year it all feels a bit different from the other years. This is the END, the last book of the series, and it feels so bittersweet to me. Some days I think, I miss Clara. It's been a while since I had her voice in my head. . . And I am so excited to find out what the fans will think of how everything plays out. I hope you like it!

Second: Those of you who entered my Radiant pre-order giveaway, fear not. I have ordered the special-signed something, which is just taking a while to come, so I can sign it and mail it to you. Don't worry--it will get there! And I think you'll really like it. . .

Third: I am about to go on tour. Click above on my Events page to see where and when!

Fourth: I am already on a wonderful blog tour. Check this out. All you ever wanted to know about me and the Unearthly series, and BOUNDLESS, coming your way over the next couple of weeks!

And last: a new giveaway. I am giving away 4 signed copies of the Boundless ARC! All you have to do is share the BOUNDLESS trailer on your facebook page, your twitter feed, or in your own personal blog! You can also enter by spreading around my new countdown widget from the top left corner!
