ODD & TRUE Pre-order Giveaway

We're now only three months away from the publication of Odd & True! For a limited time, I'm offering a special, "while-supplies-last" Odd & True pre-order giveaway, open to U.S. addresses only.

The first THIRTY people to enter the giveaway will receive.

Two signed Odd & True bookmarks
An exclusive bag of Odd & True Tea

About the tea:

Tea leaf readings play a key role in Odd & True. Inspired by tea that author Megan Shepherd designed for her novels The Madman's Daughter and Her Dark Curiosity, I reached out to the company Design A Tea to create a custom blend for Odd & True.

Each tea bag contains a blend of black teas flavored with oranges, cranberries, and raspberry leaves to represent the novel's various settings. The oranges are a nod to sunny Southern California, the raspberry leaves are a tribute to Oregon, and the cranberries signify the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.

How to enter the giveaway:

1. You must have a U.S. address and be 18 years or older (or have the permission of a parent or guardian).

2. Pre-order a hardcover or ebook copy of Odd & True from any store. Pre-orders made before the giveaway's start date count as long as you still have the receipt.

3. Send your address and a screenshot or photo of your receipt to catwintersbooks AT by 11:59 pm on September 11, 2017. If thirty people enter the giveaway before this date, the giveaway will close, and this post will come down.

4. Please write "Odd & True Preorder Entry" in the subject line.

Thank you so much for your interest in my newest release!

Spring Updates

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm hard at work on a new young adult novel right now, plus I'm getting ready for my whole family to arrive from out of state to celebrate my daughter's high school graduation next week. If you don't see me on social media much over the next month or two, it's because I'm either hurrying to meet my latest deadline or busy with loved ones. I'll also start traveling for appearances again in late June.

Before I duck away too much, I'll leave you with a few updates about my novels and upcoming events.

First of all, I'm excited to announce that The Steep and Thorny Way was selected for the 2017-18 Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB). If you're an Oregon student in grades 9-12 in a school that participates in OBOB, you'll get to read not only my book, but eleven other titles, including novels by Stacey Lee, Jason Reynolds, and Renée Ahdieh. I'm extremely honored that Steep will be part of this incredible program.

I also learned that The Steep and Thorny Way is the 2017 Jefferson Cup Award winner for Young Adult Readers. I'll be traveling to the Virginia Library Association's annual conference in October to accept the award and discuss the novel.

In Odd & True news, I now have a date and location for the launch party:

Thurs., September 14, 2017
7:00 pm
Powell's Books 
at Cedar Hills Crossing
3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd. 
Beaverton, OR

I'll also be promoting Odd & True at the ALA Annual Conference in Chicago on Sunday, June 25. If you're a librarian who's planning to attend the conference, you'll be able to see me at the YALSA Coffee Klatch at 9:00 am. I'll post my signing schedule/ARC giveaway details as soon as I receive more info.

And if you're heading to BookCon in New York this weekend, you can grab an Odd & True ARC at Abrams Booth #2007. Follow @PiqueBeyond on Twitter for more details.

Check back here on June 12 for info about a special, limited-time Odd & True pre-order giveaway.
