The Wolf’s Curse will hit shelves in six days. SIX DAYS! After 14 years working toward this dream, I can hardly wait for my book to be out on shelves (and in readers’ hands)!
The weeks leading up to my launch have been wild––in large part because my second book (due out in the fall of 2022) is due the day before The Wolf’s Curse publishes. I can’t wait to tell you more about that story, but in the meantime, I have so much exciting news to share—including a giveaway and the world’s coolest book trailer!
First of all, I’d love to invite you all to my virtual book launch––I’ll be in conversation with Newbery Medal-winning author Erin Entrada Kelly on Tuesday, September 21st at 7pm Eastern. We’ll discuss Grim Reapers, wolves, my writing journey, and more! Pre-registration is required, so get your spot now. (Bonus: you can also order a signed copy of The Wolf’s Curse from Talking Leaves on the pre-registration link!)

Second, there is still five days left in my preorder campaign, so get your receipts in now! Everyone who enters will receive a bookmark, postcard, and sticker (while supplies last), and one lucky reader will receive a free book-themed bag and a free 30-minute virtual author visit! Here’s how it works:
Preorder a copy of The Wolf’s Curse at your favorite book retailer. Submit your receipt here, and that’s it—you’re all set (note: you can also submit proof of a library purchase request). This offer is good in the U.S. or Canada.
Finally, I’m over-the-moon excited to share the book trailer my publisher created—isn’t it stunning?
In case you’ve read this far and you’re still hungry for more, here’s a round-up of some of my recent appearances:
