You can now preorder signed copies of The Steep and Thorny Way online at Powell's Books. I'll be signing the books on Thursday, March 10, at 7 pm, at the Cedar Hills Crossing location of Powell's in Beaverton, Oregon. All pre-ordered copies will be shipped after that evening.

We're now just a little over three weeks away from publication, which means I'm busy making behind-the-scenes preparations (in addition to revising another book and writing the first draft of a completely new novel!).

I'll soon be posting more info about the blog tour, giveaways, and a fabulous online launch party celebrating four historical novels that are all releasing on March 8. I have a feeling that I'll also be revealing the cover of my next adult novel, Yesternight, in the middle of the festivities, so please keep an eye out for all of my news, both here and on my social media sites.

Junior Library Guild Selection

I received more phenomenal news about The Steep and Thorny Way today: the book is a Junior Library Guild selection.

If you're unfamiliar with the Junior Library Guild, here's some information about this incredible honor from their website,

“The JLG editorial team reviews more than 3,000 new titles each year, in manuscript or prepublication stage. We’ve developed a keen sense for finding the best of the best. Over 95 percent of our selections go on to receive awards and/or favorable reviews.”

Thank you, Junior Library Guild! You made my day!
