The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is on sale today, Tuesday, March 4! Those of us at MacTeenBooks have not stopped talking about how much we love The Winner’s Curse since we first read it, and we are so happy that you can read it now, too. Here’s Associate Director of Trade Marketing Kathryn L. on why she can’t get enough of The Winner’s Curse.
“What did I not like about this book? I love how it keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. I love how it has this great balance of touching on serious topics like human rights issues and war, but also has this incredible love story. Marie’s writing is also so beautiful, I really just cannot get enough of it. Her storytelling style and gift with words makes me want to read sentences and whole chapters over and over again.”
Alina the Sun Summoner from Shadow and Bone by @lbardugo by request of a lovely anon! I love this series so much, and the final installment is going to ruin me (see what I did there) (no seriously that book is going to destroy me). The anon just asked for anything Shadow and Bone-related, so I decided to draw Alina all decked out in Summoner blue, being the powerful kick-butt Grisha girl she is.
I LOVE this. Look at her sassybritches expression. She’s giving me Elsa feels. Gillian, you are the best!!
Speaking of art, today my friend Jackson Pearce’s book TSARINA comes out (under her pen name J. Nelle Patrick). I took the liberty of ordering an extra copy to give away. What, I thought, would be a good way to enhance the beauty and thrill of the text inside?
so here we have myself riding a moose drawn in this copy. I have also signed it. This is how friendship works, and if you are not finding yourself doing this regularly, you need to step back and ask myself, “am I good friend? Am I someone I’d like to know?”
If you would like to win the Moose Tsarina, either reblog this or tweet the cover (er, if you’re a twitter person, better hashtag it #winamoose so I see it). Then I’ll pick a random winner at 9 p.m. EST today (Feb 27th). Yes, it’s international, yes, it’s signed by me and not by Jackson.
Who doesn’t want a moose?
I have finished my outline for the last bit of this novel. Okay so maybe it is a bit of charcoal doodle instead but same difference.
I made these as a way to compile all the geographical vocabulary that I thought was useful and interesting for writers. Some descriptors share categories, and some are simplified, but for the most part everything is in its proper place. Not all the words are as useable as others, and some might take tricky wording to pull off, but I hope these prove useful to all you writers out there!

This is great for writing!
