First, excellent news from Elana, who revealed the beautiful cover of her third book, ABANDON! You can find out more information about it here (and add it to your GoodReads). Additionally, in the month of October, Elana's holding a Review Drive. You can find out more information here.
As we gear up for two (two!) launches of League books this month, there's lots of exciting news for both Mike and Genn. Make sure you don't miss any of Mike's stops for his blog tour celebrating ASHEN WINTER. And if you'd like to see Mike in person, a full list of his upcoming appearances can be found here.
Genn will also be touring blogs throughout October, as well as touring in real life with the Fierce Reads book tour from October 16-22. A full list of all the stops can be found here. And lots of people are loving on CREWEL--not only have the Italian rights sold to Rizzoli in auction, but CREWEL was chosen as an Amazon Editor's Fall Pick for Teens!

And finally, I've got some news of my own...I'll be at NY ComicCon this year! Not only will I be on several panels, but I'm also going to signing (free!) copies of SHADES OF EARTH during the con. I'll also have an event at Books of Wonder. For more information on these and all my stops, just check here.
I also have a little bit more news, including an upcoming giveaway, but all I can say now is that you should probably check out my blog around October 15...
