Preorder Time!

If you can’t believe it, you can sure bet I can’t believe it! Circle of Jinn releases in just four weeks!

On May 17, 2016, Circle of Jinn, the sequel and conclusion to Becoming Jinn, which VOYA Magazine named one of the Best Science, Fiction, Fantasy or Horror of 2015 in a starred review, will hit the shelves.

CircleOfJinn_CoverPublishing is a long process, and so I’ve had to keep my mouth zipped and avoid spoilers for more than a year.

Advance praise for Circle of Jinn from Booklist, one of the top trades, says “book two takes a sharp turn into high fantasy . . . Romance and wish granting take a backseat to friendship, political intrigue, and Azra’s maturation and ongoing discovery of her heritage. Fans of the first book should be satisfied by this conclusion.”

I can’t wait to see if readers agree!

You may remember from last time how important preorders are for increasing the profile of the book among retailers, at the publisher, and with readers, but once again, I’m sweetening the deal.

Preorder or buy a new copy of Circle of Jinn by May 27, 2016,* and you’ll automatically become a genie** yourself!

** Swag includes temporary bracelet tattoos; the power to become a Jinn must already be inside you.

Every preorder, including signed preorders from my local indie, Porter Square Books (both books available for signed orders), will be mailed a signed bookmark, signed bookplate, and metallic bracelet tattoos.

But wait, there’s more! You’ll also be entered into the grand giveaway to win one of the exact shiny silver bangles featured on the cover of both Becoming Jinn and Circle of Jinn. The more preorders, the more bangles I give away!

What to Do

Order the book from anywhere you wish, or click one of the links below to take you to your preferred retailer. (If you’ve already preordered, you have my gratitude (!) and you can still get in on this deal).

I’ve lived with Azra and these characters for the past three years. This series and these books have brought new experiences and friends into my life. I’m grateful to all of you readers for supporting me on this journey. I can’t thank you enough, but if you happen to be near where I’ll be live, I’d love to try!
