Fierce Reads Omaha Tour Recap & Giveaway


The panel L to R: Jessica Brody, Emmy Laybourn, Anna Banks, Leigh Bardugo

At the event each author gave a short synopsis of what their book is about and then there was a very fun Q & A from the audience where we discovered the Jessica hates the word Panties, the inspiration for Shadow and Bone came when Leigh woke up after a nap in a cabin that was dark and she couldn't find the lights (hence the shadow fold), Anna Banks has forgotten to take her bra off before getting in the shower, and Emmy's favorite books are whatever is on the shelf behind her (just kidding of course!). 


 The highlight of the event for me was meeting Leigh Bardugo author of Shadow and Bone and Siege and Storm and the creator of The Darkling who I am representing in the YA Crush Tourney this year!

(BTW I'm having a giveaway of Shadow and Bone or Siege and Storm here if you'd like to enter)

After the fun Q & A session I got all of my books signed and I am very excited to start reading 52 Reasons and Monument 14. Emmy seriously cracked me up and I am now planning out my survival strategies for the End of the World.

 It also wouldn't be a Fierce Reads Event if I didn't get tons of swag! I especially love the Siege and Storm button that says "Let's All Privateer" I just love Sturmhound.

Now on to the part you've all been waiting for I am giving away a Fierce Reads poster signed by all of the authors and some of the swag above! All you have to do is fill out the rafflecopter below. 

*This giveaway is US only. I'm sorry to all my international followers but shipping is ridiculous. You can still enter my Darkling giveaway which is International!

  1. OMG! You're so lucky they came to so close to you! The Fierce Reads Tour has never stopped close enough to Baltimore. I loved Of Poseidon, Monument 14 was okay, Shadow and Bone was amazing, and 52 Reasons to Hate My Father was really good. I have Of Triton and Siege and Storm, but I haven't read them. I need to pick up Sky on Fire and Unremembered! Ack! Thank you so much for the giveaway! <3

  15. Lovely! I went opening night when they were in Portland and meeting Leigh was the highlight of my life. I am so jealous of your Darkling related inscription on your book haha. I love all the swag, my favorite piece of mine was the signed poster and the Make Me Your Villain pin. Glad you got to go!
