Magic Under Stone releases TODAY!

So, a couple weeks ago a blogger was like, "Hey, it says on Amazon that Magic Under Stone comes out on February 28th. Is that true?" And I was like "WHAAAA!?" Because as far as I knew, it was April 10th.

Yep. It's true. They moved it up. It snuck into bookstores all stealth-like. Poor little book, no one's even reviewed it!

Well, a few people have. Emily at Red House Books says: "I didn't think it was possible but I loved Magic Under Stone even more!" She's also offering up a giveaway of your choice of any of my three books HERE, along with an interview about some books that evoke memories and associations for me.

I'm also giving away a copy of Magic Under Stone (at least, when they show up). It'll be signed and have a few sketches of the main characters peppered throughout. US only, this time, unfortunately, because I am still cash-strapped from the move, although I hope to open up a foreign giveaway later when belts are less tight. Just comment with your email address, that is all you have to do! If you want to mention it somewhere, you get an extra entry, but you know, I'm being casual about it. I'm in the middle of edits for Dark Metropolis and there's no time to get fancy.

Also, now is a good time to mention that I'll be doing more author events now that I live in Maryland. If you live in the mid-Atlantic or northeast, keep an eye on the "Events" sidebar. I've already got a few cooking, including a signing with Michelle Zink at Oblong Books in New York in April that should be a ton of fun!

    1. LOL, you're like the fifth person to say "the east coast"...Florida is the east coast too! (But yeah, I'm glad to be outta there. I'm sad I missed you at Jessica's launch party! Our car was stuck in the snow. Oh, Floridians.)

  8. Shoot, the Kindle version doesn't appear to be available yet. That still says April 10th. Will wait (in)patiently while others read the hard copy.

    *heads off to read Magic Under Glass*

    1. Yeah, I have a feeling they will make it available sooner...probably a different person handles the ebook releases and they don't know either? Who knows. Publishing is weird.
