Some of you may have heard about the tragic Grenfell Tower fire in London last week. For those of you who haven’t, Grenfell Tower is an apartment block in the Kensington & Chelsea area of London – simultaneously one of the richest and one of the poorest neighbourhoods in the UK capital. Last week, a fire in one of the 120 apartments in the tower spread from that apartment to the entire building within fifteen minutes. Residents were told to stay in their homes. The final death toll is yet to be confirmed, but expected to be in triple figures.

To help support the British Red Cross and the victims of this terrible fire a group of authors from my literary agency has started an online auction. To help support the cause I’m giving away a one of a kind annotated copy of Caraval (US or UK), and you can bid on it here.

Other authors are giving away signed books, book series sets, manuscript critiques, one-to-ones, Skype school visits, and named characters, which you can bid on right here. And remember, all of this money goes to an excellent cause.

Thanks so much for your support!

 

BookCon is coming up this weekend and I’m so excited! This is my first time at BookCon, and I’m really hoping to see some of you there.

So, here’s my official schedule–please come say hi!

If you’ve been to one of my signings you’ve probably heard me talk about music. You may have heard me mention that Legend’s character was inspired by the Fall Out Boy song Centuries, or that when I wrote Caraval I wanted it to feel like a Baz Luhrmann movie meets a Florence + the Machine song.

The world of Caraval was definitely influenced by music. So I am thrilled to finally share my musical playlist!

For those of you who’ve asked me about this in the past, thanks so much for your patience as I put it together.

I hope you enjoy it! xo—SG

The Day After Caraval

 

Hey, friends! It’s been  FullSizeRender 11awhile since I’ve posted–I’ve been busy working on my next book, but I wanted to take a break from that to share some really exciting news.

I’m headed to BookCon, TLA Annual, and Mysterious Galaxy in San Diego as part of Roshani Chokshi’s A Crown of Wishes Tour.

Lots of you have been asking when I’ll come to NYC, so I was thrilled when they invited me to be a part of BookCon. I don’t have the full schedule yet, but I know for sure I’ll be there on Saturday, June 3rd.

Before that I’ll be at Mysterious Galaxy with Roshani Chokshi and Cindy Pon. So if you’re in the southern California area, come hang out with us on April 1st at 2pm.

And for all the amazing librarian’s out there, I’ll be at ALA Annual on Friday, April 21st!

I’m super excited about all these events, and I really hope to see some of you there!

FullSizeRender 3Hey friends!

Caraval is officially out in the world, which means the Caraval book tour is now underway! Thank you again to everyone who  to the first stop, at Kepler’s Books, this last Tuesday–I couldn’t not have asked for a more enthusiastic group of people to celebrate that evening with. I had a great time, and I think the next tour stop is going to be just as fun.

So, for those of you who might have missed it I wanted to post a reminder that I’ll be at Barnes & Noble in Roseville, California, this Saturday (February 4) at 2:000. My dear friend, author Jessica Taylor, will be there with me as well, asking questions about Caraval so that all of you can get a behind the scenes look at the book.

For anyone who may have missed it, here are two updated lists of the tour stops. I’ll also be joined by NYT bestselling author, Veronica Rossi, in Corte Madera, Jessica Cluess, author of A SHADOW BRIGHT AND BURNING at Vroman’s in Pasadena, and NYT bestselling author, Joelle Charbonneau will be joining me at Anderson’s Bookshop.
