Pre-order RENEGADES and Claim Your Swag!

Posted on: 11th Sep 2017  /   Categorized: Marketing & Promotion


We’re less than TWO months away from the release of RENEGADES (!!!!!!!!!) and all sorts of fun things are a’happening. Including this fun pre-order promotion, just launched by Fierce Reads!


When you pre-order RENEGADES and submit your receipt, you’ll receive a set of either Renegade (hero) or Anarchist (villain) buttons – and you get to choose your side!


See the full details HERE.


(P.S. I’ve been getting asked if you can pre-order two books and receive both sets of buttons. Technically they’ll accept only one entry per person. BUT, if, say, your mom or a friend wanted to pre-order an additional book, then you’d both get to choose a set. *wink wink*)


(As this promotion is being hosted by my U.S. publisher, it is open to U.S. and Canada residents only.)

Comments Off on The #WinRenegades Bookstagram Winners!

Winners have been chosen from last week’s social media #WinRenegades giveaway! You can see the randomly selected winners posted on the Rafflecopter of this post, but I wanted to pull special attention to the #Bookstagram winners, because they are all SO PRETTY!


My plan had been to select only one Marissa’s Choice winner, but I love both of these SO, SO MUCH, I had to award them both.



So many amazing releases this year!! I don't know about you, but I find myself anxiously awaiting the day of each new release.😍❤📚. And one of those releases is Marissa Meyer's Renegades! The days have never felt slower, fellow book lovers. Seriously, the struggle is real. But what if… There was a chance to #WinRenegades ?! Well, in honor of Marissa Meyer joining the Instagram book community she's hosting a giveaway for…yep! You guessed it! She'll be giving away a much coveted ARC of Renegades!! I know…Total *grabby hands* right?!?! So, take your best #bookstagram / still-life photo or video featuring at least one of Marissa Meyer's books (My favourite is Heartless!). Include the hashtags #WinRenegades and #bookstagram and be sure to fill out the form for a chance to win!

Look closely – the delicate lacey border is made out of BOOKS! I am amazed at how cleverly Dani set up this whole composition. When I first saw it, it felt like looking through a kaleidascope. Plus the harlequin backdrop and the roses… the end result is just SO pretty!

From what I can tell, this might be Ella’s first go at a Bookstagram, and she completely knocked it out of the park! I absolutely love the simplicity of the design, and how much impact the photo has with the Queen and Joker cards together in that dark, moody lighting. Also – the banner is real needlepoint! I had to do a double-take the first time I saw it. Such a unique idea!



This Bookstagram was actually the randomly selected winner, but I love it so much that I wanted to share it, too – look at all those fabulous textures! And also, the adorable chibi-Cinder!!


There were LOTS of gorgeous photos submitted for this contest. If you want to see more, check them out here!

6 Social Networks, 6 Ways to #WinRenegades!

Posted on: 21st Aug 2017  /   Categorized: Giveaways

Two things happened this weekend.

1. I joined Instagram. (Because… peer pressure.)

2. I got my box of RENEGADES ARCs! Which means… it is time for me to start giving them away!



In honor of my being apparently the last person on the planet to join the Instagram bandwagon, I wanted to do a big #WinRenegades giveaway across all my social media pages. And I thought I’d start by saying –




Thanks to everyone who has followed, liked, favorited, or commented in support of me and my books over the past six years. I know I’ve been really quiet on the social networks lately (for which I mostly blame babies), but I so appreciate all of your ongoing encouragement – the fanart, the beautiful pictures, the kind words.


With that said, I am giving away one ARC for each of the social networks that I’m (somewhat) active on… and now, Instagram, too!



Read on for details on how to enter via each channel. Enter one or enter them all – it’s completely up to you!


Though not officially a social network, I’ve been connecting with readers via my blog since way back in my LiveJournal / fanfiction-writing days, and it remains one of my favorite ways to talk to you guys about my books and writing in general. Seriously, thank you for being here!

To enter, respond to this blog post and tell me:

What is your favorite type of content to see on this blog? (and/or) What sort of posts or information would you like to see more of?

Because You Love To Hate Me – On Sale Now!

Posted on: 11th Jul 2017  /   Categorized: Anthologies

On Sale Now!



Leave it to the heroes to save the world–villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains’ points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like “Medusa,” Sherlock Holmes, and “Jack and the Beanstalk” provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains’ acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage–and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Featuring writing from . . .

Authors: Renée Ahdieh, Ameriie, Soman Chainani, Susan Dennard, Sarah Enni, Marissa Meyer, Cindy Pon, Victoria Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Adam Silvera, Andrew Smith, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Nicola Yoon
