Before She Ignites launch events!

Hello, darling readers!

With less than a month until BEFORE SHE IGNITES hits the shelves, I need to start talking about where I’m going to be in the next few weeks. With all the indefensible things happening these days, it never seems like an opportune time to share fun stuff. But as heartbroken as I am, this is part of my job. Please forgive me for a bit of promotion.


September 12 at 6pm – Books of Wonder in NYC

I’ll be there with a few friends: C.J. Redwine (DEFIANCE, THE SHADOW QUEEN), Dhonielle Clayton (TINY PRETTY THINGS and forthcoming THE BELLES), and Erin Summerill (EVER THE HUNTED)

Since we are all four fantasy authors, this is going to be a ridiculously fun panel about fantasy books!

September 14 at 7pm – Blue Willow Bookstore in Houston, TX

This one will be Erin and me, again talking about fantasy books and grand adventure.

September 17 at 3pm – One More Page Books in Arlington, VA

I’m going to wrap up this whole thing with my local-ish indie, where Lisa Maxwell (UNHOOKED, THE LAST MAGICIAN) and Martina Boone (COMPULSION) will be joining me.

But it doesn’t end there!

September 23, 2017 – time TBA – B-Fest at Barnes and Noble in Charlottesville, VA

October 5-6, 2017 – times TBA – New York Comic Con!

October 9, 2017 – 6:30pm – Epic Reads meet-up at Hooray for Books in Alexandria, VA, with Lauren Oliver (RINGER), Kristen Ciccarelli (THE LAST NAMSARA), Katie Cotugno (TOP TEN)

October 28, 2017 – 12-1pm (panel) 1-3pm (signing) – mass signing at Barnes and Noble in Charlottesville, VA

There’s a whole lot of TBA in there. As soon as I know details on those, I’ll update my Appearances page with the information.


As always, if you can’t make it to these events, you can order signed and personalized books from the stores. (Email to check on international shipping.)

I also need to mention that my preorder giveaway is still going — for now. I greatly underestimated the interest in this, so I ran out of cards within the first week. I’m making more now to catch up, and I put the first batch in the mail the other day. Those of you who sent your confirmations in the first couple of weeks of the giveaway should be getting your packages soon.


Extra love for those of you struggling right now.
