This month has been a whirlwind, and the next one looks like it will be the same! I’ve got lots of news to share!
Dagger and Coin releases next Tuesday!
Kirkus calls it a “riveting fantasy sequel” and “[a] fine balance of political intrigue, relationship drama, and thoughtful characterization.” School Library Journal says: “Strong female characters taking the lead in a fast-paced plot will appeal to fans of fantasy, mythology, and works by Kristin Cashore.”
Join me for Dagger and Coin events!
I’m thrilled to be launching Dagger and Coin at Page After Page Bookstore at the Maryland Renaissance Festival on Saturday, October 13 and Sunday, October 14! Join me to get your signed copy, learn how to write your name in the language of the gods, and collect some groovy swag!
I’ll also be appearing with Deborah Schaumberg, author of The Tombs, at Fall for the Book on Wednesday, October 10 at 1:30 PM for “The Heroine’s Journey.”

Nita’s First Signs news!
The big news is that the first print run of Nita’s First Signs is sold out! While individual copies are still available through some online retailers, copies of the book are expected to be hard to get until the end of October. Familius Press is therefore offering anyone who attends one of my events the opportunity to order the book at 40% off! Look for the sign-up sheet at my events throughout October!
The Nita’s First Signs Teacher/Librarian Guide is here! Check it out today for great ideas on how to incorporate more signing into your lessons and storytimes!
