Need a recap of PASSENGER before you dive into WAYFARER?

Hi guys!

With less than a week until WAYFARER comes out (!!!), I'm so excited to share what I've been calling the MEGA GRAPHIC of PASSENGER! It recaps everything from the plot, to the terminology of the travelers, to the time travel rules, to the characters themselves. 

You'll notice that it looks super daunting when you first open it, but its really meant to function however you need it--you can skim the sections you remember and refresh everything you don't. If nothing else, I would recommend revisiting the time travel rules as well as the very last section, which recaps what happens in the last two chapters of the book.

Tour Dates for WAYFARER + TDM in the UK!

Hey y'all! I'm very happy to post the tour dates for WAYFARER next January, and I'm so thrilled I get to do a week of events with my pal Sooz. :) I hope to see you guys there!!

We might be adding one or two more stops, so stay tuned!

In other exciting  news... some of you may know that I've been hoping beyond hope to one day have a UK edition of TDM trilogy. Over the years, I've gotten countless requests for ebooks to be made available, but we weren't able to do it because the North American and Aussie/NZ editions were restricted to those territories. BUT! I'm so, so happy to tell you that Quercus, my amazing UK publisher for PASSENGER and WAYFARER, has picked up the rights to TDM series and those books are on sale TODAY!!

My YALLFest 2016 Schedule

Hi guys! 

I'm so excited to be participating in YALLFest again this year! The full schedule went live yesterday, and YAY! Time to share panels and signing times. (Remember that you can always check for upcoming events on my Events page!)

As a special treat, I'm bringing 150 exclusive WAYFARER prints to my signings! They were done by Hayley Mayne, who did the art for the other pre-order giveaway prints. 50 will be available at my signing during YALLCrawl on Friday, and the other 100 will be handed out on my signing on Saturday. Please note that the Saturday signing will be wristbanded and limited to 100 people.

If your schedule is too packed to stop by and say hello, don't be afraid to stop me on the street! Unless I'm trying to hustle between panels and signings, I'm always down to sign something, take a photo, or chat.

The Target Exclusive Edition of Wayfarer

Hey all! Just stopping in to tell you that there will be an exclusive edition of WAYFARER available for purchase through Target! YAY! This edition is signed by moi (you may remember me signing thousands of these sheets) and will also come with a short story called Pathfinder, which is centered on a seventeen year old Rose Linden reconnecting with Henry Hemlock... aka Etta's dad, who you'll get to know in WAYFARER. I had a wonderful time writing their story and exploring who they were before everything fell apart. 💔  Just to be clear, this is a short story, rather than a deleted chapter or extra scene.

If you're interested, you can pre-order it using this link, or look for it in stores on January 3rd! And while we're on this topic, don't forget to submit your pre-order receipts for the swag giveaway. There are still a few slots open for the holiday card and print!

The Darkest Minds Litographs Design Contest!

Hi guys! I've had so many people ask over the years about potentially having Litographs merchandise available for The Darkest Minds series, and I'm very, very pleased to tell you that they heard your requests! And they want one of you to be the designer!

WHAT IS A LITOGRAPH?

A Litograph is art created from the text of a book. Litographs then takes this art and prints it on t-shirts, tote bags, and posters, meaning you can now wear your favorite book! Check out www.Litographs.com to see examples of their work. 

YOUR MISSION:

Create a design to be used as the base for posters, t-shirts, and tote bags for the original The Darkest Minds Litographs line of merchandise. 

GUIDELINES

  • The winning design will be used as the main art for the release of The Darkest Minds t-shirts, tote bags, and posters.
  • Your design should be inspired by The Darkest Minds and/or speak to a key theme, or plot point, in the book. In other words, we want to be able to recall the book from your design (that doesn’t mean spoilers!). Your design must fit some general size and style qualifications as in the Litographs style guide. That said, please do be creative!
  • our design should include graphics only. No text please (as the background will consist entirely of text!).
  • Please do not use copyrighted images. All artwork should be your own creation.
  •  Open internationally. 

HOW TO SUBMIT

  • Please submit ONLY ONE DESIGN. If you submit more than one design, your work will be disqualified.

  • Once your design is finished, use the below typeform link to submit your design and contact information. Your design will later be posted to my Pinterest page for voting.
