Cover Reveal + Lunar Chronicles News!

2 Aug


Rapunzel’s tower is a satellite. She can’t let down her hair – or her guard.

In this third book in the bestselling Lunar Chronicles series, Cinder and Captain Thorne are fugitives on the run, with Scarlet and Wolf in tow. Together, they’re plotting to overthrow Queen Levana and her army.

Their best hope lies with Cress, who has been trapped on a satellite since childhood with only her netscreens as company. All that screen time has made Cress an excellent hacker – unfortunately, she’s just received orders from Levana to track down Cinder and her handsome accomplice.

When a daring rescue goes awry, the group is separated. Cress finally has her freedom, but it comes at a high price. Meanwhile, Queen Levana will let nothing stop her marriage to Emperor Kai. Cress, Scarlet, and Cinder may not have signed up to save the world, but they may be the only ones who can.

The third installation of the Lunar Chronicles is being released Feb 4th, 2013!!

Current Giveaways


The time of CRESS giveaways is upon us! Between now and the official release next February I’ll be hosting ARC giveaways on my blog and Facebook page, so keep your eyes peeled for many chances to win.

And to start it all off, one lucky newsletter subscriber has been randomly selected to win a signed copy.

And that winner is . . . Elvina Barclay! Congratulations!

I’ll be doing another subscribers-only giveaway in October. But for better odds, try entering my first-ever Pinterest contest, below.

The Lunar Chronicles Pinterest Contest

Are you on Pinterest, or have you been looking for a reason to sign up? Well here it is!

Create a Lunar Chronicles-inspired Pinterest Board for your chance to win a signed advance copy of CRESS.

How to Enter

1. Create a board on Pinterest with a theme that in some way relates to the Lunar Chronicles. Do you want to make a New Beijing recipe board? An awesome cyborg technology board? A moon-themed fashion board? Be creative! Anything goes!

2. In the description of the board, explain how the board’s theme relates to the Lunar Chronicles.

3. Pin away!


– There must be at least 10 pins in order to be qualified for the contest.

– ONE of those pins must be the CRESS cover, which you can re-pin directly from here. (That said, the cover does not otherwise have to relate to the board’s theme.)

4. Follow me at and then tag me in ONE pin on your board. This is how I will know to enter your board in the contest finalists. Please do not tag me more than once or invite me to pin to the board.

And that’s it!


– All entries must be received by midnight PST, August 31, 2013.

– I will collect all entries on my Pinterest page so that fans can view and enjoy.

– I will post the finalists of my choice, with links, here on the blog in early September. Finalists will be chosen based on their creativity, originality, and how well the theme relates to the Lunar Chronicles. Blog readers will vote to determine the final winners.

– TWO winners will each receive a signed ARC of CRESS: Book Three of the Lunar Chronicles.

– Open internationally!
