YA thriller giveaway!

You guys! My new YA thriller, "This Lie Will Kill You," comes out in a month and a half! And I recently acquired an ARC of "Two Can Keep a Secret" by Karen M. McManus (author of "One of Us Is Lying.")

What do you think? Shall I give away BOTH?!


I think so too. And, just for fun, I'll throw in a $10 Amazon gift card as well! Check out the description of my book, out December 11th from Simon & Schuster/McElderry, then enter the Rafflecopter to win!



One year ago, there was a party.
At the party, someone died.
Five teens each played a part and up until now, no one has told the truth.

But tonight, the five survivors arrive at an isolated mansion in the hills, expecting to compete in a contest with a $50,000 grand prize. Of course . . . some things are too good to be true. They were each so desperate for the prize, they didn’t question the odd, rather exclusive invitation until it was too late.

Now, they realize they’ve been lured together by a person bent on revenge, a person who will stop at nothing to uncover what actually happened on that deadly night, one year ago.

Five arrived, but not all can leave. 

In the spirit of Karen M. McManus, Lois Duncan and Christopher Pike, this twisted, spine-tingling thriller will leave you wondering – will the truth set these teens free? Or will their lies destroy them all?

Giveaway for my *only* ARC of THE LAST FAERIE QUEEN!


That's right, my beautiful darlings, I've got ONE advanced copy of The Last Faerie Queen, and I want to give it to you!  For those of you unfamiliar with the story, The Last Faerie Queen is the second and FINAL book in The Last Changeling duology. That means everything Elora and Taylor started in Book 1 is being put into action in Book 2.

An alliance with a rival court!

A forbidden relationship!

A faerie revolution!

But will the Bright and Dark Courts fall? And if they do, what is the cost? Find out in The Last Faerie Queen, and don't worry. If you haven't read Book 1, the opening of Book 2 will catch you up! Give it a try if you like faerie rebellions, diverse fantasy worlds, fierce girls and sweet boys.

Here's the official description:


A FAERIE REVOLUTION...

After risking her life in the mortal world, the faerie princess Elora returns home to incite a revolution. Allied with the Bright Queen, Elora rallies her people for a battle against her mother, the corrupt Dark Queen. While some question their ability to win, Elora senses victory, knowing she has a secret weapon: Taylor, the human boy she loves, along with a motley crew of his school friends, each armed with a skill that can turn the tide of the coming battle.  

A MORTAL SACRIFICE...

But Elora’s supporters in the Dark Court turn on her, believing she has forsaken them in favor of humans. And when the Dark Queen kidnaps two of her human allies, Elora resolves to mount a daring rescue mission—before her mother can offer up her friends as a sacrifice.

Thanks for the support! <3

Kirkus reviews THE LAST FAERIE QUEEN!!!

As you may recall, Kirkus had some lovely things to say about The Last Changeling. Now, they've returned to review The Last Faerie Queen (the second and final book in the YA duology) and I'm thrilled to share their thoughts! The middle of the review got a little spoilery, so I've separated it into the descriptive passage and several of my favorite quotes. 

THE LAST FAERIE QUEEN 

Author: Chelsea Pitcher
Publisher: Flux
Publication Date: November 8, 2015

“In this sequel to The Last Changeling (2014), set entirely in Faerie, faerie princess and revolutionary Elora, supported by Taylor and a handful of other human stalwarts, continues her mission to free the faerie underclass as conflict between Bright and Dark intensifies. Relying on the Seelie Court to help free her people from her mother's brutal regime, Elora lays her plans. Shorn of her wings, she finds comfort and healing in Taylor's arms as they prepare for the struggles ahead; making and learning to use new weapons keep the humans occupied. As the plot shifts from Seelie to Unseelie realms, the plot grows increasingly violent—humans are tortured...limbs are hacked off."


“Taylor's distinctive voice and smart, self-deprecating humor remain narrative strengths.” 

“An enjoyable read for high-fantasy fans”


Woot! Check out my *one and only ARC* giveaway here. And pre-order the book here: <3

VOYA Reviews THE LAST CHANGELING!

Hey everybody! I have a fabulous review to share with you today. This one comes from VOYA, and I'm not even going to pull specific quotes, because I love the whole thing!


When Taylor meets the beautiful and mysterious Lora, he has no idea who she really is—princess of the Unseelie Court who has fled her tyrannical, dark-faerie mother on a quest to align herself with the Bright Queen and begin a rebellion to change the course of faerie history forever.  Lora holds many secrets, but all Taylor knows is that he is falling in love with her and beginning to see past the darkness of loss and shame of feeling blame for the tragedy that has befallen his little brother. Yet, as Lora encourages Taylor to befriend the outcast students of Unity High and lead them to reevaluate what it means to claim one’s identity, she also has a plan for her own future… a plan that could be lost if she too falls in love.

Told in alternating chapters from the perspective of Taylor and Lora (known as Elora in her faerie realm), The Last Changeling weaves mystery, romance, and high school drama to speak to a variety of issues, including sexuality, social hierarchies, and parental failings. The central characters and their burgeoning romance melds with the fantastical elements in intriguing ways, but the cast of secondary teen characters are especially interesting, allowing for a story that will not only keep readers on the edge of their seats, but challenge them to think about identity in new ways.—Meghann Meeusen.

Thanks for reading!
