Advance reading copies (ARCs) of The Steep and Thorny Way arrived on my doorstop last night, to my delight, and they look absolutely STUNNING! Here are some photos that will give you a sneak peek at what's in store for the finished book, which releases March 8, 2016, from Amulet Books. At the very bottom of the photos, I've included a short teaser from the novel.

The beautiful ARCs: front cover, spine, and back cover.
A quote from Shakespeare's Hamlet.
A peek at the beautiful chapter headings, and a preview of the book's first line.

And . . . the little teaser excerpt:

The book was sumptuously designed by Maria T. Middleton at Abrams, who also designed In the Shadow of Blackbirds and The Cure for Dreaming.

More sneak peeks to come in 2016. Preordering options are listed below. Check back here next Thursday, October 1, to visit my stop in the upcoming YA Scavenger Hunt, which will include an ARC giveaway for The Steep and Thorny Way!

Bloggers: The Steep and Thorny Way will be available to request from the Abrams Kids page of Netgalley later this fall.


(More ordering options coming soon.)
