ARCs of SALT & STONE Have Arrived

Free Book Galleys

It’s always a magical day when ARCs of a book you wrote arrive on your doorstep. You hold it in your hands. You squeal. You dance around your living room in nothing but a towel to the tune of Janet Jackson’s old stuff. Err, maybe that’s just me? No, it’s definitely you too.

Request ARC of SALT & STONE

I’m super jazzed to learn that advance reader copies (ARCs) of SALT & STONE will be available in a few short months. Because you guys are awesome, many have asked me how they can acquire their own early copy of the sequel to FIRE & FLOOD. If you are a book blogger with a review site, a librarian, a teacher, or a teen reader, feel free to email Scholastic at tradepublicity@scholastic.com and request an ARC.

Super Exciting Book Deal News!

Victoria Scott

After finishing the sequel to Salt & Stone, I was faced with the thrilling question authors occasionally get to ask themselves: What’s next? I had a couple of ideas for Scholastic, and got to work on drafting proposals. One of the those proposals was, admittedly, way too dark/twisted/warped for the publishing house to buy. I went on to finish that manuscript, and promise one day you will get to read it in some fashion. But I can’t talk about that book…yet.

FIRE & FLOOD Dutch Cover

Victoria Scott

Hey. Hey, you. Guess what? GUESS WHAT?! I just saw the super surreal Dutch cover for Fire & Flood, and I think it’s cooler than a roller coaster ride through Awesometown (that’s a thing). It’s basically the same design, but apparently they’re calling it Water & Fire for translation’s sake. Also, you know how the race itself is called the Brimstone Bleed? Well, in Dutch it’s the Sulpher Loop. What?! I don’t know. All I do know is I’d want no part of the Brimstone Bleed or the Sulpher Loop, IRL.

Halfway to SALT & STONE

salt and stone

You guys have been such patient readers. Just look how patient you’ve been! It’s been six months since Fire & Flood released and you haven’t once begged, pleaded, or threatened me for the sequel. Oh, wait, yes you have. I suppose you’ve been about as patient as I have waiting for Salt & Stone ARCs to land on my doorstep (that’s a zero-percent patience level, just so we’re clear). Today, because you’ve been so kind and well-behaved (no, false), I’m giving you a few spoiler-free lines from book two. Let’s see if that’ll tide you over for a few weeks.
