The big Update-y post of all the Update-y Things!

There's been a LOT going on around here, thanks to how close we're getting to the launch of EVERBLAZE. (Less than two weeks--AHHHHHHHH!) So in case you missed anything, I thought I'd put it all in one place, to make it nice and handy.

First up--the EVERBLAZE Official Launch Party, in Southern California.  There will be cupcakes! And prizes! And an exclusive piece of swag that will be very hard to get anywhere else! Plus you'll get to buy your signed copy a whole day early and be there for all the fun. Trust me, if you're in SoCal you don't want to miss this.  For more details on all of that, go HERE. And here's the when and where:

And I know this is the point where those of you who do not live in any of these areas pout because I'm not coming to see you. Believe me, I'm sad too. I wish it were possible to go everywhere. But since it's not, I've got a couple of other options for how you can get signed books and some of the awesome tour goodies I'll be giving away: 

  • If you want a hand-signed copy of EVERBLAZE and the swag I'll be giving out on tour (except the mirrors--those are only for the launch party), you can order a copy from the stores I'll be visiting and have them ship it to you. Independent booksellers tend to be the best organized for this, so I'd recommend either The King's English, Blue Willow, or Changing Hands. Shipping and availability may vary, so you'll want to be sure to ask. Phone numbers for all of the stores are listed above.
  • If you pre-order a copy of EVERBLAZE before 11/3/14, you can fill out the form on this blog for the Pre-Order Swag giveaway and as soon as I get home from tour, I will send you awesome signed swag. You'll get the Iggy postcard art print, a Keeper series bookmark, and a signed bookplate to stick in your copy and turn it into a signed hardcover (or put anywhere you'd like if you order the ebook.) Plus you'll have a chance to win some extra goodies (including a few of the exclusive launch party mirrors). And this offer is even open internationally--but is only for a limited time. Full details on how it works--and the form you'll need to fill out--can be found HERE


And in non-event related news: the KEEPER website has been totally redesigned, and it has some incredible new goodies I think you're going to LOVE!!! Go HERE to check it out, and be sure to keep an eye out for:

  • Sophie's Foxfire schedules
  • Foxfire Academy information
  • All the details you'll need to create your own Foxfire schedule
  • Awesome new character art
  • A quiz to discover your ability
  • A recipe for Mallowmelt
  • Plus an excerpt from EVERBLAZE--which includes the first TWO chapters (so yes, if you've read chapter one in the EXILE paperback, another chapter has been revealed!!!) Get thee there quickly for another early sneak peek!

Phew--I think that's everything!!! But as always, keep an eye on this blog, and my other social media because there's a good chance I'll have more updates in the days to come. I hope I get to meet some of you on tour, and that the rest of you sign up to get your swaggish goodies. And thank you all for the excitement and support--THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER!!!!

  2. OMG, I lived in Claremont from 1968 (when the Montclair Plaza was almost complete) till 1985. I was 10 in 1968. I feel like I grew up at the Montclair Plaza. My friends and I spent hours going from one store to another. And See's gave out free samples. Oh, such memories. I hope your Official Launch Party goes well! And I wish I still lived in SoCal so I could attend!

  5. I'm super sad Fresno isn't on the Everblaze tour, but I guess you can't go everywhere at the same time..though that would overly fabulous if you could. Just still finding a way to Pre Order Everblaze without getting my paren't accounts hacked.....again. GO Team Keeper! If you ever want a Keeper of the Lost Cities party in Fresno, we'll all be thrilled!!!
