A last selfie of 2018.
I've been so quiet here lately, I know, but I'm working on something new. All year a girl was quietly taking shape in my head, just waiting for the moment I'd stop long enough so she could tell me her story. That time is now and I can't seem to write it fast enough. It's all I want to do. It will be a while before I can say much more about my next book than that--but for now I'll leave you with this: it includes a character I am so excited to introduce you all to. And everything about this caption is something you should be afraid of.
🙂

This month marks a decade as a published author for me. I sent out a newsletter today about what I thought it would be, what it's turned out to be and what I've learned. The link is in my bio and I hope you'll read it. But if you'd like me to sum it up: thanks, all, for the start you gave me and thanks for coming along with.
💚 .

🚨 There are some very cool (& time sensitive!) #blackfriday opportunities and deals relating to Sadie that I don't want you to miss, so please indulge me with this Very Promotional Post. 😊
.
1. The Sadie hardcover is currently 50% off--under $10!!!--on Barnes & Noble and Amazon. This lasts until Sunday, so if you've wanted a copy of Sadie, another copy of Sadie OR a copy for a friend, well . . . you can't beat that price and I don't know when it'll come around again. 👀 & If you know someone who might be interested, let them know! Sadie cracked the B&N Top 100 for the first time today because of readers taking advantage of this deal and I can't believe it. You did that! THANK YOU!
.
2. Sadie is a #bnsignededitions selection which means as of today, you can walk into your local B&N and find signed copies of Sadie (at list price, I believe!) while supplies last! One of the questions I'm most frequently asked is where readers can purchase signed copies of my books. The chance doesn't often present itself, so if this is something you can take advantage of, I hope you will! I had a lot of fun signing tip-ins last summer and I'm excited I've finally gotten to share this!!
.
3. Okay, not deal related, but I might as well go all in while I'm here 😂: voting for The #GoodreadsChoice awards ends November 26th! Sadie is a finalist. If you want to see her named Best YA Fiction of 2018, you've got to vote for her by then. Whatever happens next, thank you to everyone who has brought this far.
.
.
Pertinent links with more info in bio. HERE ENDS A VERY PROMOTIONAL POST! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead of you. ❤️

📣 I've got good news if you're after a signed copy of a Courtney Summers book! Sadie is a Barnes & Noble #BNSignedEditions selection! What's that mean? Starting #BlackFriday (11/26), hand-signed copies of Sadie will be available at @barnesandnoble stores! 🎉
Signed copies are one of the things I'm asked about a lot and the opportunity to get one doesn't often present itself to my readers. I scribbled my name in a limited number of 'em, so if you want one to call your own (or you know someone it would be the perfect gift for!) this will be your chance to grab one at B&N while supplies last! 😊❤
More info at the link in my bio.

YOU GUYS DID IT! You took Sadie from the opening round all the way to finals in the Goodreads Choice Awards! If you want to see her named Best Young Adult Fiction of 2018, now is the time to give her your vote (link in my bio). Whatever happens next, I just want to *thank you* for bringing it this far. Your belief in and support of one girl's story of love and revenge has made it possible for even more people to discover it--and that means so much to me, more than I can say. Thank you for continuing to show up for this book. Thank you for voting for it. I've truly got the best readers. 💗💗💗 ALSO! Tomorrow, November 14th, I will be doing an AMA (Ask Me Anything) on r/books beginning 2 PM EST. DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO ASK ME ANYTHING! Ask about Sadie, writing, publishing, hold me accountable for my creative choices (my endings!). A n y t h i n g! Link is in my bio, can't wait to see you there! 😊 .

@YALLFest! We did it! Swipe left for shenanigans. Nothing but ❤️ for an amazing weekend that put me in front of the most amazing readers and alongside incredible authors. Here's a peek:
2. Loved doing the panel on Family with Morgan Matson, Deb Caletti, Tiffany Jackson and Adib Khorram. It was fascinating to get insight on these extremely talented authors' processes. (📷: Sarah Enni.)
3. Murder and mystery! I've never laughed harder discussing such bloody, awful things with Carrie Ryan, Corrie Wang, Lamar Giles, Stephanie Perkins and Megan Miranda. (📷: The Novl.)
4. Signing for readers! (📷: Wednesday Books.)
5. Me and the Wednesday Book team (you were missed @jpreeg!) had a lucky run-in with the wonderful Stephanie Garber.
6. Speaking of wonderful, check out these two absolute queens: me and THE ONE AND ONLY Kiersten White! (📷: Kiersten.)
7. The green room had a backdrop and what else could the amazing Katilin Ward, Laurie Devore, Kiersten White, Ryan Graudin, Megan Miranda, Beth Revis and I do but take advantage of it? (📷: Beth.)
8. Brandy Colbert and Melissa Albert did not mind my fangirling! Brandy and I have been part of each other's careers since their beginning and I can't imagine this journey without her. I've been a fan of Melissa's since the start of hers--what ferociously talented women.
9. Veronica Roth and I anticipate Smackdown, though I don't think anything actually PREPARED us for it. Incredible. (📷: V.)
10. Last but never least: YOUR NEXT FAV BAND: @vrothbooks, me, @laurie_devore and @kaitlin_ward. Getting face time with this trio who are among some of my greatest friends and supporters in life and in publishing was a highlight. I'm lucky to know such a great group of people (not all represented here, and those not there, we missed!) who just so happen write some of the most incredible books you'll ever read. ❤

THANK YOU to the hardworking #YALLFEST committee, volunteers, publishers, authors and readers who made it a weekend to remember!

Tell me your favorite fictional friendships! Books, movies, TV, I want to know. I have a lot--any friend of the Winchesters is a friend of mine, tyvm--but with TODAY'S release of Rebecca Barrow's (@rebeccakbarrow) This is What it Feels Like, I add Dia, Jules and Hanna to the list. ❤ I got to read Rebecca's sophomore novel early, and ever since, I've been waiting for the moment I could tell you all about this beautiful firework of a story about three girls who used to play in a band together. Their combined talent had them poised on the brink of something special . . . but life had something different in mind for each of them. Motherhood. Fractured relationships. Rehab. If all that's left of what you had is in pieces, how do you even begin to put it back together? When a major music contest offers the girls an incredible opportunity, they just might realize that every piece has the chance to make a new whole--if their brave enough. If they dare to be happy. This book is a beautiful exploration of courage, of embracing life. The resilience and heart of each one of its unforgettable protagonists will truly move you. I can't begin to tell you how much I FELT this novel in my heart--but I can tell you all that you must pick it up because you'll feel it too. Happy release day, Rebecca! 🎉

"Be my good girl, Mats."
💔
.

Some things! (Links in my bio):
* Do you like Behind the Scenes writer stuff? Over on @goodreads I've annotated Sadie's most highlighted passages by Kindle readers and shared what I was thinking when I wrote those moments in the book. It was fun! Take a look and join in on the discussions they've inspired. 👀 Also, thank you SO MUCH for voting for Sadie in the opening round of the #GoodreadsChoice Awards! I'm lucky to have the readers I do. ❤️ * I'm off to @yallfest later this week! I'm so excited and can't wait to see everyone there! 🎉 Check out my schedule so you don't miss me! * I was incredibly lucky to do an interview with the wonderful @thegrammargirl! We talked Sadie and punctuation and I hope you'll check it out. Thank you for having me, Mignon! * I'll be doing an AMA on r/books on November 14th at 2 PM EST. Mark it down in your calendar because this is your chance to ask me about Sadie, writing, publishing or anything else you want! I'm looking forward to it. 🙂

I'm THRILLED to share Sadie is a nominee in the Best YA Fiction category in the opening round of the Goodreads Choice Awards!!! 😱 Check out the link in my bio to vote. The Goodreads Choice Awards is a wonderful opportunity for readers to make their voices heard about books they've loved each year and a chance for authors to have the books they've written reach an even wider audience. I'd be so happy to see Sadie's gritty story of revenge, sisterhood, love and survival progress to the semifinals and if her story has meant something to you, I hope it's earned your vote there. 😊 And thank you so much if it has--I'm grateful for your continued support of Sadie and for the incredible things you've helped to make happen this year. They would've never been possible without you. ❤️
CONGRATS to all nominees across all categories and yay for Reader's Choice!!! 🎉

Whatcha currently reading? There's something ominous about this photo, and that's why I took it--I wanted to capture the magnificent sense of foreboding @kaitlin_ward writes about so well in her books, the latest of which, Where She Fell, is out TODAY! I was lucky enough to get an ARC and those opening chapters--my God, they were so intense, so beautifully claustrophobic, I had to set the book down every few pages to collect myself. Have you seen The Descent? That's what Where She Fell is, but it's something special all its own. It's about Eliza, who finds herself trapped in a cave far far below the known world, in a place more horrific and wondrous than you can imagine. She can't live there--but that doesn't mean she wants to die there, either. It's not only a story of survival, of clawing your way back to the surface, it's a keen examination of friendship, anxiety, personhood and taking charge of your life. As she did with Girl in a Bad Place and Bleeding Earth, Kaitlin takes exceptional, unexpected, extraordinary plots and then digs deep into their humanity. I hope I never go through what her characters go through but is she ever an expert, a true talent, at making me FEEL it. Whatever you're reading now, read Where She Fell next. I loved it and you won't be disappointed. Happy release day, Kaits!!!! 👏 ❤
