Story Generator + Crown of Midnight Book Tour

As everyone is well aware, I adore the Throne of Glass series. Sarah J. Maas has created a world that I've fallen in love with, complete with a corrupt political scene, strongly drawn characters and a story filled with twists, turns and magic. I've pretty much shouted my love for the series all over Twitter and the blog (see 1 & 2 for proof!), so it's extra exciting for me to be able to announce that I'm one of the ambassadors for Throne of Glass. What does this mean exactly? Well, I'll be sharing exclusive content and hosting a few giveaways for Throne of Glass and its sequel Crown of Midnight for the next few months! It's going to be a grand ol' time, as I get to basically gush about the series, the characters and Sarah herself.

Before I move on to today's post, why don't you check out my review of Throne of Glass and the Throne of Glass novellas? I've also got the book trailers for Throne of Glass and Crown of Midnight! I've also gone dress shopping and book shopping with Celaena, our sassy and kick-ass main character.

Have you ever wanted to be in a book? Well, I know that I would have loved to be in this series. It would be cool to meet Celaena and hang out with her, Dorian and Chaol. The lovely people at Bloomsbury give YOU a chance to be a part of the story with their digital story generator. You answer a couple of questions and boom - you're a part of Throne of Glass!

I played around with the generator for a while before settling with the final version that you're going to see below. It was a lot of fun messing around. I came up with a funny version, a sad version, a lewd version and a fangirly version (don't ask) before I finally decided that this version was perfect. Check out scene 1 and scene 2, as co-authored by me.

I'm also excited to be able to announce Sarah's tour dates in the US! It makes me sad that she's not coming anywhere near NY, even though I'm actually out of the country in August. Still, all you people who can go and see her definitely should - she's a wonderful, engaging, sweet person!

I hope if you're near a tour stop or within driving distance that you make time to see Sarah. She's an amazing author, and all-around a wonderful personality! You'll definitely enjoy yourself if you make it to one of her events. Meeting her at BEA was certainly a highlight of my year -- even though I still wish I could catch one of her tour stops!
