Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: Will there be a sequel to Of Fire and Stars?
A: The short answer is that I don’t know. The long answer is that it likely depends on how well Of Fire and Stars sells. You can help (for free!) by leaving a nice review on Amazon, B&N, or another book retail website; asking your local library to order the book; or recommending it to your friends.
Q: What other books do you have coming out in the future?
A: Currently I have two books slated for 2018.
Inkmistress (March 6, 2018) is a YA fantasy set 200 years before Of Fire and Stars. Asra, a demigod who can change the the future by writing in her blood, but only at the cost of her youth. When Asra accidentally kills everyone in her village trying to change the future, she must go on a quest of redemption to rewrite the past and stop the girl she once loved from murdering the king.
The other book is a YA contemporary co-authored with the fabulous Paula Garner called Starworld (Fall 2018). The novel follows two very different high school girls with painful home lives who fall into an intense text-message-based friendship built around an imaginary world, until their real lives unravel and one falls in love with the other.
Q: Will you read or critique my short story/novel/fanfiction/essay?
A: Alas, I can’t. I work a full-time job in addition to being an author, which means my free time is extremely limited and it is important to me to spend time with my friends and family. I highly recommend taking advantage of some of the critique partner matching services out there, or perhaps getting involved with a local writing group or organization. SCBWI or RWA are both great and have chapters in many locations. If being social online is more your scene, check out AbsoluteWrite or AgentQueryConnect.
Q: I can’t get your book in my country. When will it be translated/available?
A: Unfortunately, translations and foreign sales are not something I have any control over. However, Book Depository ships for free internationally, and is a great place to order a copy if you want one in English. Of Fire and Stars will be released in 2018 in German by cbt Verlag as Feuerhimmel, Sternennacht.
Q: Will you send me a free copy of your book in exchange for a review?
A: Prior to a book’s publication date, I will generally have some Advance Reader Copies that I am happy to distribute to bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers/reviewers. The book will also probably be available on Edelweiss where you can request an e-ARC. Once a book is past its publication date, I no longer have any copies to give away.
