You entered. I crunched the numbers. The grand prize winners of the pre-order campaign have been selected and emailed. So check your emails!

And as a reminder, this is what’s included for in some of the grand prize packets:

MoS, RoS

IT IS TIME! Ruin of Stars comes out in 66 days, and you all have made the last few years amazing. I’m so, so thankful to all of you who have read and supported Sal’s story, and I’d love to give everyone who pre-orders or requests a library copy of Ruin of Stars a gift.


You all made this possible so you all get swag.

You can pre-order RoS at the following places or from your favorite store!

Amazon ⚔ Barnes & Noble ⚔ IndieBound ⚔ Book Depository
(And my local indie Watermark!)

If you pre-order or request Ruin of Stars by August 28th, I’ll send you a package including:

  • 1 signed bookmark
  • 1 signed postcard
  • 1 sticker based on your favorite assassin (not pictured)
  • 1 quote/business card based on your favorite assassin


Additionally, one-fourth of entrants (while supplies last) will be randomly selected to also win: a dashing lapel pin and a poster featuring the world of Ruin of Stars.


And a randomly selected lucky 5 entrants will win 6 character cards (to be revealed in August) and a t-shirt (which you may personalize if you win) (wrinkles not included it is Maud after all).






Pre-order or request Ruin of Stars and fill out the form below (or linked here) before the end of day 28 August 2018. Everyone who fills out the form completely will receive the 4 pieces of swag listed as tier 1 and a chance to win the tier 2 and 3 prizes.


If you are selected as a tier 2 or 3 winner, you will be asked to provide proof of pre-order or request (whether its receipt, screenshot, or your very wonderful librarian promising you requested it). This is open to US and Canada residents only for now. I will be able to know if I can open it internationally before the end of July and will update ASAP.

And again, thank you thank you thank you. None of this would’ve been possible without all of you, and your support means the world to me. I’m glad Sal and their friends have found a home with such lovely readers.

I have some exciting news that went live yesterday! In 2020 a new standalone fantasy titled By Grace and Blood will come out, and in 2021, another standalone will be released.

I’ve been completely honored with the responses to Mask of Shadows and Sal, and while I’m sad to see Sal’s journey come to a close in Ruin of Stars this August, I’m exciting to introduce new characters and worlds.


I’m going to NoVA Teen Book Festival in Arlington, VA!

You can pre-order a signed copy of MASK OF SHADOWS here even if you can’t make it & find out more about the schedule here !


The ebook is $1.99 today across all platforms and is a Kindle Daily Deal (and perhaps the perfect holiday gift for your friend who prefers stories of vengeance and murder to family gatherings).

Check it out at Barnes & NobleKobo, and Amazon!
