The Girl Who Would Be King Cover

Some lovely new reviews, mentions, and such for THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING about the web!

The Refined Word gave me perhaps the most fantastic compliment I have ever received as a writer – I think I full on blushed.

Stephanie’s gorgeous cover art got picked for Infinite Curio’s “Cover of the Day” as well as About Happy Books “Cover Favorites” for 6/15/13!

Never Yet Melted calls TGWWBK the next Hunger Games here. (yes!)

The lovely Kimberly over at Love YA Books put yours truly on her list of Top 10 Authors That Deserve More Recognition and put TGWWBK on her list of Top 10 Beach Reads! Thank you Kimberly!

Claudia Lefeve (great name!) mentioned TGWWBK in her 5/31/13 GOOD READS post.

A good review by Henry Fung at Fraggin’ Civie.

We’re also up to an insane 119 Reviews on Amazon and still maintaining a fantastic 4.5/5.0 star rating and we’re up to 315 ratings and 85 reviews on GoodReads.

Thanks to all of you have that have taken the time to write reviews! And as always, if you write about the book on your blog or tumblr or some such, please shoot me a link…the web is a vast place, it’s hard to find everything!

Two new blog reviews went up today for THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING – both rate the book 4.5 stars.

The first is from THE PREEMINENT LITTERATEUR and TGWWBK was the first book read in her Theme Month for March – “GIRL SQUARED.”

Caitlin sums it up as: “My love for this book has been like a stick of dynamite with a long fuse. It snuck up on me, and now I am eagerly awaiting sequels and movies.”

The second review is from Miranda from ON THE NIGHTSTAND and she sums it up as “everything [I’ve] ever wanted in a comic book, in book form.”

Thanks Ladies!

You all know where to buy the limited edition illustrated hardcovers, right???

Today’s word count: 240

The lovely Tim Hanley recently gave THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING a fantastic review over on his blog Straightened Circumstances saying “The story never goes where you think it’s going to; it’s always darker and more exciting than you’d expect.”

And over on A.A. Omer’s blog TGWWBK gets a nice review and a 5/5 star rating!

We’re also up to 45 reviews on Amazon (US) and have 5 stars! Pretty awesome, kids.

In other badass TGWWBK news – a TGWWBK superfan has purchased every single thing related to the book that currently exists – all prints and editions, everything!

He recently got everything in the mail and was kind enough to send in some pictures – it’s a pretty incredible collection!

All the signed prints!

And he also included a photo of ALL the swag. So much stuff!

And of course you guys know you can buy almost all of this at THE GIRL WHO WOULD BE KING STORE, right?  AND there’s a sale going on now! :)

Here’s some things that have been going on while I’ve been too crazy busy to blog (that all changes tomorrow though).

I wrote about the Dredd movie for Lit Reactor: 10 Reasons Why Dredd Is The Best Comic Book Movie of 2012 You DIDN’T See

I wrote about Wonder Woman the CW’s in limbo ‘Amazon’: 5 Ways Looking At Comics Can Help The CW’s ‘Amazon’

On She Has No Head! – I talked about Faith Erin Hicks collected The Adventures of Superhero Girl and “8 Great Female Led Comics You Should Be Reading.”

I wrote reviews for some really great comics: Hawkeye #8, Adventure Time #13, and Captain Marvel #10.

I wrote reviews for some pretty good comics: Powers: Bureau #1, Avengers Arena #4, and Uncanny X-Men #1.

And at least one not so great comic: Justice League of America #1.


Whew.  Alright, I’ll try to stay more on top of things this month…swearsies.

A new She Has No Head! is up – one in which I explore why Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Young Avengers #1 is the future of superhero comics – and the future is indeed, bright!

Check it out!

An all-new She Has No Head! is up, kids. And I really like this one, so check it out.

I get to rave about the idea of Brian Wood’s upcoming X-Men title while bitching about everything that was wrong with Marvel Divas. Oh, Marvel, how far you’ve come! I feel like a proud parent! :)
