Comments Off on Introducing The Happy Writer Podcast!

Hey readers! Exciting news: I’ve started a podcast! It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while, and this season of COVID-19 felt like the right time to give it a shot.

In The Happy Writer Podcast, I’ll be interviewing authors and talking about their books, their process, and different ways we can bring more joy into our writing journeys. I’ve had so much fun recording my first episodes and cannot wait to hear what you think!

The first episode, where I chat with Jessica Brody about Book Two in her “Les Mis in Space” trilogy, BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS (co-written with Joanne Rendell), is already live. You can listen here or via these podcast-listening platforms:

Apple Podcasts
Google Podcasts

(More coming soon!)

Please be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss an episode!

You can also follow The Happy Writer on social media: Instagram, Twitter, Facebook

To celebrate the podcast launch, I’m also hosting a giveaway, where you can win an ARC of SKY WITHOUT STARS, signed by both Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell, as well as a signed copy of CINDER and some fun swag! You can enter on the podcast page. Ends Thursday at midnight PST. Open internationally.

And stay tuned for Episode Two, in which Sandhya Menon talks about her new book, OF CURSES AND KISSES.

Happy listening!

Comments Off on Fan Art CONTEST and Other News!

One of my FAVORITE things about being a writer is seeing all the amazing fan art you guys create for the worlds and characters! (See past #fanartfriday posts on Instagram for proof!) And now you can put that talent toward a new contest!

For my American and Canadian fans, the fanart contest is put on by @FierceReads:

ONE Grand Prize Winner (chosen by me!) will win… *drum roll* A TRIP TO MY NYC SUPERNOVA LAUNCH EVENT! This is not a drill. I cannot WAIT to meet the winner!

NINETEEN runners-up will have their art featured in an exclusive Fan Art Wall displayed at ALL of my Supernova Tour events! –

Submit your #RenegadesTrilogy fan art by 8/26 at! Note: this is not an Instagram contest – you must enter via the online form.
Note: THIS contest is open to US and Canada only (because it’s run by my US publisher and legal mumbo jumbo won’t allow them to accept international entries)

For my international fans, I’m running a separate contest on Instagram.

FIVE WINNERS, selected by yours truly, will each have their art featured on the fan art gallery wall at ALL of my Supernova Tour events! Plus they will receive a signed copy of SUPERNOVA and some epic Renegades swag!
Post your Renegades-inspired fan art on Instagram by August 26 (11:59pm PST). TAG IT: #RenegadesAbroad #RenegadesFanArt (please use both tags – if it’s not tagged, it’s not entered!)
Please include your country of residence somewhere in the description. (This is for my own data-gathering purposes and will have no impact on your chance of winning.)

Note: The Instagram contest is NOT open to American/Canadian residents – please enter the Fierce Reads fanart contest above.


While you wait for Supernova:

EVENTS: I will be at the Seattle Children’s Book Festival on Saturday, Sept. 28.

TOUR: I will be announcing the dates and locations for my Supernova tour soon!

SUPERNOVA PRE-ORDER CAMPAIGN: Pre-order Supernova and upload your receipt via this online form before August 14th to have your name printed in the paperback of Archenemies! Those who submit their receipt now will also receive an exclusive Universe of Marissa Meyer pin pack!
