From Monica Edinger's (Author of Africa is My Home) blog-

…a little bird told me the next two are in the home stretch of being finished and coming out some time in the not-too-far-off future. First the publisher will reissue the original four to bring a new generation of readers to them and then…numbers five and six. Excited moi? Just a bit.


According to Amazon, new editions of books 1-4 are going to be released February 28th, 2017. Source. Also confirmed by the Harpercollins website. Source. Could books five and six follow behind in 2017? We can only hope!

I bought copies of The Thief and The King of Attolia today at a used book store (who would sell these masterpieces?!) to flesh out my favorite books display. I'd really like 3 full sets; one set to loan out (to entice new reprobates to the group), one set signed by our beloved MWT which no one is allowed to touch!, and a third set just for me. How many sets do you guys have?

QT Icons

Aug. 5th, 2016 | 01:40 pm
mood: hopefulhopeful
posted by: healwaysjumps in sounis

Hello everyone! I don't think I've ever actually posted in this community, but I have a favor to ask. Several years ago I made a bookmark for myself which was essentially lots of different Queen's Thief icons that I printed out and glued to a piece of paper (very high-tech, as I'm sure you can tell). It's been my favorite bookmark for years now, so I was pretty devastated when it fell out of my book somewhere on my walk to work last week and is now most likely gone forever. I was hoping to recreate it, but I no longer have all the icons saved. Google has recovered a few of them but most of my favorites are still missing. If you have a collection of QT icons that you are willing to share with me I would be super grateful. I promise I am not making these bookmarks to sell, and I will not use them elsewhere online - I'm just printing them out for my own personal use.
All of these would have been icons that people were using 7 or 8 years ago, so I understand if they just aren't around anymore. A few that I remember having are one that said "Lilies I rule..." and another that said "Useless the Younger". I think I also had one that said "And she believed him".
Please help!

Edit: NEVER MIND! My personal crisis has been averted. I found all the icons saved on my computer. Pheeewwww.
I guess I'll go back to quietly twiddling my thumbs and waiting for the next book in peace :)

EpicReads has posted a list of YA Authors We Desperately Need Another Book From. Of course our MWT made that list. I love that they feign patience about as well as we do.

Amen to other authors mentioned there!

Lurker here.
A search on Amazon reveals the four existing books are being re-issued in Spring of 2017, with the last one coming out in March.

Can book 5 be far behind?

MWT at GeekyCon: Today's panels

Jul. 29th, 2016 | 05:40 am
posted by: bookishbabe in sounis

First day of GeekyCon and our Lovely MWT is scheduled for 3 panels.
10am What is YA?
Why is the media constantly wrong about what YA really is? Why does one library put {Harry Potter} in the children's section while another puts it in the teen section? Can a book be both YA and middle grade? Hear authors discuss these questions and more, as they try to define the YA literary genre.

11am The Long Haul
How do you get from your first book to your third, or your seven, or tenth? Let's talk plotting.

6pm Author Hat Trick
Come see what we pull out of the hat. Q&A? Games? Delirious ramblings? Rabbits? You'll have to stop by to find out!
Actually, I'll be your spy. You just sit tight. I'll return and report.
