Serpentine pre-order gifts!
It’s hard for me to believe that Serpentine’s release date, September 8th, is just around the corner! I’m giving away book swag, and below are the details!
Serpentine is a sweeping fantasy set in the fictitious Kingdom of Xia and inspired by the rich history of Chinese mythology. Lush with details from Chinese folklore, Serpentine tells the coming of age story of Skybright, a young girl who worries about her growing otherness. As she turns sixteen, Skybright notices troubling changes. By day, she is a companion and handmaid to the youngest daughter of a very wealthy family. But nighttime brings with it a darkness that not even daybreak can quell.When her plight can no longer be denied, Skybright learns that despite a dark destiny, she must struggle to retain her sense of self – even as she falls in love for the first time.
“Vivid worldbuilding, incendiary romance, heart-pounding action, and characters that will win you over–I highly recommend Serpentine.” —Cinda Williams Chima, bestselling author of the Seven Realms and Heir Chronicles fantasy novels
“Serpentine is unique and surprising, with a beautifully-drawn fantasy world that sucked me right in! I love Skybright’s transformative power, and how she learns to take charge of it.” —Kristin Cashore, New York Times bestselling of the Graceling Realm Series
“Serpentine’s world oozes with lush details and rich lore, and the characters crackle with life. This is one story that you’ll want to lose yourself in.” —Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of Legend and The Young Elites
★ “This coming-of-age story takes readers on a fantastical journey through friendship and Chinese mythology. YA fans will love Pon’s storytelling ability and the immersion into a world filled with love, danger, and fantasy.”—Jessica Strefling, US Court of Appeals, Federal Circuit Library (Starred review from School Library Journal)
I’m a firm believer that art feeds the soul like nothing else can. I’ve commissioned art from amazing talented artists to make into postcards for all of my books. This is the first time I had the honor of receiving an original painting from Likhain. She read Serpentine and this was her artistic vision. The original, which I just received a few days ago, is stunning. I’d LOVE to share the art with you. If you purchase Serpentine and email me proof, I will send you a postcard of Skybright, my heroine, fierce and determined. I will ship international.
Please note, in the original painting and the postcard you will receive, Skybright is bare chested as I depict her in the story. :)
If you want a signed/personalized copy of Serpentine (paperback or hardcover), I’m doing a pre-order giveaway through my favorite local indie bookstore, Mysterious Galaxy. These brush art cards are all prints of my original paintings, and you can choose ONE if you order the paperback, and TWO if you order the hardcover. Click here to pre-order from Mysterious Galaxy. And thank you! I’m so excited for Serpentine to go out into the world!
I love this book and I hope you will too!
