I’ve already waxed fangirlish on the awesomeness that is ASHES by Ilsa J. Bick. So imagine my squee moment when I see an article on Publisher’s Weekly about how ASHES is getting the biggest launch in Egmont’s history! With 125,000 copy first printing (which is huge), a pre-tour and another scheduled next month, it’s a wonder that there’s anyone left that HASN’T heard of ASHES yet.
Seriously people, it’s a fantastic book. It really does put so many of those apocalyptic/dystopian books coming out now to shame in it’s technical near-flawlessness. With a catastrophic world written so believably, it’ll actually be pretty frightening to read. I’m telling you, you’ll start looking at the sky differently after reading it. Considering in the past couple of months New England has gotten tornadoes, an earthquake and is bracing for a hurricane this weekend, it’s only a matter of time before we have to start keeping an eye on our first born.
If you haven’t read it already, put it on pre
-order or mark your calendars to grab a copy when it drops on September 6th
