It also means… only two more weeks before it exists in bookstores!!

And remember, MOST if not ALL of these blog tour stops will be hosting Scarlet giveaways, so be sure to follow the full blog tour for your best chance to win a copy of the book!


In addition to all that, A Backwards Story is hosting an entire week of Little Red goodness!

“A Week of Little Red will feature guest posts, author visits, book reviews (because, after all, Marissa isn’t the ONLY author with a kick-ass Little Red to celebrate!), giveaways, reviews, and more! It all begins with a special blog tour stop for SCARLET and culminates with a release day celebration!”

Anyone wanting to participate is encouraged to contact Bonnie via her blog.


As the launch creeps closer, don’t forget to check out my tour schedule and see if I’ll be in a town near you.

You can also now pre-order SIGNED and PERSONALIZED copies of Scarlet from Garfield Book Company. YES, they will even ship international!
