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!!

Check out the slightly modified covers:

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.

1:00 PM: That Time I Sucked Panel at Charleston Music Hall | 37 John St

Adam Gidwitz, David Levithan, Aprilynne Pike, Alexandra Bracken, Grady Hendrix

Whether stumbling into the historical while writing fantasy, or burying themselves in research about the past, authors talk history and how it informs the stories we tell.

San Diego Comic Con Schedule

Hi guys! There's so much to catch you up on, but I wanted to quickly share my schedule for SDCC next week. I hope to see you there! One more thing--I always love to see you guys and I'm happy to sign anything you'd like and take photos if you spot me walking around. But if it looks like I'm trying to get some place in a hurry, I might not be able to stop. I just want to put that out there because I always feel like an a-hole when I have to say no, usually because I'm already running a little late. Comic Con attendees know how long it can take to get from Point A to Point B with the crowds! Cool? Cool.

Please feel free to bring books to sign from home, but note that I will not be able to personalize at this signing to make sure we can get to everyone.

Tour Dates for PASSENGER and Pre-order Giveaway

Hi guys! I'm so excited to be sharing two big pieces of news with you! Up first, my events for for PASSENGER next January! This is a very special tour because I get to share it with my amazing friend (and book birthday twin!!), Susan Dennard for TRUTHWITCH. And if that's not enough awesome for you, the greatest wordslinger in the west and author of VENGEANCE ROAD, Erin Bowman, will be with us in New York at the launch event. We are going to have a blast and I can't wait to see you guys and sign some books! As always, you are MORE than welcome to bring The Darkest Minds series or any of my other books to for me to sign. Please consider buying a book from the awesome Indies while you're there, though, to help support future events!



More news! To thank you guys for all of your support over the years, and because I'm so freaking excited for you to give PASSENGER a try, I've created a pre-order giveaway for anyone who pre-orders a copy of the book. Here are the deets:

Screen Shot 2015-11-01 at 9.16.48 PM

Everyone who pre-orders will receive a short story set in the world of The Darkest Minds series. Readers have voted and selected a story centered on Liam after THE DARKEST MINDS and before NEVER FADE. All you need to do is forward your proof of purchase (an email confirmation, or a picture of your physical receipt) to You will be sent the story no later than December 1st.

But wait, there's more!

Everyone who forward me their pre-order will be automatically entered to win one of twenty sets of these giclee prints of Etta and Nicholas, sketched and watercolored by my friend Hayley Mayne. These are printed on gorgeous textured paper and are 8"x8" in size.

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Just in case I wasn't clear above, both the exclusive Liam short story and the print giveaway are open to everyone, including international readers. Because of the way e-book territories work, you guys will unfortunately need to import a physical copy until the book arrives in your part of the world (you're in luck though, because this is one gorgeous book--the final cover is STUNNING in person) in order to qualify, with the exception of Australia/NZ, who should be able to pre-order the e-book. Please note that this is also true for the UK.


Amazon | Kindle | iBooks | Barnes and Noble | Nook  | Books-A-Million | Indigo | Indiebound

You can pre-order personalized + signed PASSENGER copies from Books of Wonder(And, yes, they ship internationally!)

Your other option for signed/personalized copies of PASSENGER is the virtual signing I'm doing with Good Choice Reading! Click on the image below for more information!


Okay, I think that's it for now... like I said, I'm so excited for you guys to get your hands on this book!! Let me know if you have any questions about any of the above. I'll be doing plenty of events next spring and will keep you updated as the plans get finalized.
