!!! For Every Book Pre-Ordered, We Will Donate A Copy To A PFLAG Chapter !!!
SOMETHING AWESOME IS HAPPENING.
We recently talked to the lovely human beings at Chronicle Books (our book’s publisher), and explained how important we felt it was to get This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids in the hands of people who need it most: parents of LGBTQ kids (duh).
Chronicle agreed with us, and so through September 8th, every single pre-order for This is a Book for Parents of Gay Kids will be matched with a book donated to a local PFLAG Chapter!!!!
All you need to do is this:
TADA! If you’ve already pre-ordered, you can still let Chronicle know and ensure that you are getting a copy donated.
This is pretty amazing.
Please share far & wide!!

This is a fantastic feminist prep school prank-war novel, if that sounds like your kind of thing…
Indigo is featuring Unspoken in their epic series table!
That’s just MY BOOK with a millionty amazing authors!
(Look I stole—accidentally—ten Terry Pratchett books from my school library. It was an accident!)
(You’ve seen my Outlander and Game of Thrones livetweets. And if you haven’t… probably good. You may still have some respect for me. ;))
Also, I recognise that Kelley Armstrong book just from the little top bit.
Basically I love you Indigo and I love you Canada and thank you for taking the photo lynburning: I am only delighted.
Todd Dakotah Briscoe and Anna Drezen’s HOW MAY WE HATE YOU? based on the Tumblr of the same name, a window into the day-to-day idiocy endured by
the hospitality service industry, and featuring humorous and absurd
stories, anecdotes told in dialogue, factoids, and quizzes all in the
name of helping you enjoy your stay, to Emma Brodie at Clarkson Potter.
Over at I Swim For Oceans the wonderful Melissa ran a cover reveal for my next novel, THE DARK WATER! Above, the cover art. It’s out in March and it answers those questions you wanted from THE WELL’S END!
A member of the audience asks if there’s anything they would have done differently if they’d known their work would be so successful. “It’s like writing a story,” Hobb begins. “Change one tiny detail, and everything changes from that point on.” But she settles on wishing she’d had more confidence in herself early on: “Start writing sooner, that might have been the only thing I’d say to my younger self.”
Martin brings up a familiar theme: “I would have done all my promotions for Game of Thrones in disguise.” He talks about missing his anonymity—how crazy it is that his regular old rants about the Jets land him in the New York Post. “I’d want to be JD Salinger or something,” he says, then immediately backtracks. “No—I wouldn’t be JD Salinger, because I want the books to be published.”
A literary game of spot the differences. Here’s editor Victoria Matsui’s line edits side by side with the final version of Sweetness #9 by Stephan Eirik Clark.
