Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)



Q: Will there be a sequel to Of Fire and Stars?

A: YES! Thanks to the epic support of Of Fire and Stars fans, the sequel, Of Ice and Shadows, is forthcoming on August 13, 2019. Readers like you helped make this happen by leaving nice reviews on Amazon, B&N, and other book retail websites; asking your local library to order the book; and recommending it to your friends.


Q: What other books do you have coming out in the future?

A: Currently I have one other upcoming book: a YA contemporary co-authored with the fabulous Paula Garner called Starworld (April 2019). 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 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 Eine Krone aus Feuer und Sternen.


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 will distribute to bloggers/booktubers/bookstagrammers/reviewers through giveaways on Goodreads or Twitter. The book will also be available on Edelweiss or NetGalley where you can request an e-ARC. Once a book is past its publication date, I no longer have any copies to give away.
