Thank you again to Rob Bricken at io9, who says “The Girl Who Would Be King introduces the best superhero/villain pair in ages”

and “Lola is, without hyperbole, one of the most fantastic antagonists I’ve ever had the pleasure to read.” among other amazing things!

It was his rave review of TGWWBK on Thursday evening that gave us the big push we needed. Check out these awesome screen caps:



And in case you still don’t know where to get a copy – you can buy a kindle version or a paperback via AMAZON. For limited edition illustrated hardcovers, head over to THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING website. There’s also some awesome swag, limited edition prints, and such on the website if you fall in love with some of the art.

If you really want a digital copy but want it for a Nook or iPad (and don’t want to steal it – and please don’t do that) those epub editions will be available again in April. If you email me (1979semifinalist[at]gmail) I’d be happy to add you to a mailing list so you can be notified when other digital editions become available again.

And thanks to all of you that have been so supportive over the months – giving great reviews, retweeting, and blogging about the book – could not have done it without you – here’s to this only being the beginning for this book…I mean, who doesn’t want to see the movie?!?

– Kelly

    I’m just curious. Did you send the reviewer a copy of the book for review or did he just discover it on his own?

    Hi Rob
    I contacted Rob Bricken at io9 directly to see if he had any interest in the book, he said that he was willing to take a look (but no promises). I sent him a copy…and the rest is incredibly awesome history. :)

    I don’t want to see a movie version. I DEMAND to see a movie version! :)

    Great story, great characters, great book. I read a decent amount of novels and comics. I watch allot of movies and Tv Shows. I play an insane amount of video games. Rarely do i come across characters that just absolutely amaze me. Bonne and Lola are very much characters that have amazed me. I bought the kindle version and read it but had to get the hard cover copy just to show support for a great book. Keep it up. I hope to read more from TGWWBK world.

    Oh and I also demand a TGWWBK movie and graphic novel and tshirts with the art from the book on them.
