  Posted by MarcyKate , 29 April 2017 · 469 views

I’m so thrilled to share the wonderful news that I’m co-authoring THE STAR SHEPHERD with the incredibly talented author/illustrator Dan Haring! THE STAR SHEPHERD is a heavily illustrated middle grade novel and such a wonderful, special story. I’m so excited that this book will be published and that our agents had the brilliant idea that […]

A Year For Words

  Posted by MarcyKate , 03 January 2017 · 198 views

2017 is going to be an interesting year. In 2015 and 2016, I had new books coming out but this year, I do not (I know! Sad!). However, I do have a new middle grade series beginning in early 2018 which I’m very excited about and a couple surprises in store for 2017 too (sorry, you’ll […]

2016 – What A Year

  Posted by MarcyKate , 31 December 2016 · 180 views

Well, 2016 is nearly over. In some ways that’s a blessing, and in others it’s pretty darn terrifying. It’s impossible to ignore the impact of this year’s election. The hate and fear-mongering that plagued it managed to taint even happy, exciting events. So I’m keeping it short and sweet this time. Here’s hoping there are some […]

Check out PRECIOUS on Wattpad

  Posted by MarcyKate , 11 October 2016 · 126 views

It’s October – the perfect month for stories about monsters, wizards, witches, and magic. Because of that, I’m posting a chapter from Precious, the prequel novella to Monstrous originally published as bonus content in Ravenous, on Wattpad every day for the next 12 days. If you’ve read Monstrous (and even if you haven’t!) and want to […]

Summer Reading Prize Pack Giveaway

  Posted by MarcyKate , 01 August 2016 · 323 views

Happy Summer! I have very fond memories of lazy summer days reading on the porch or under a tree. It was a favorite past-time for this introvert bookworm. So, since it’s summer and I just announced my next middle grade duology last week, how about a summer reading giveaway? And since my books have that creepy fairy […]

I am so thrilled to tell you that my next middle grade series was recently acquired by Sourcebooks and the first book, SHADOW WEAVER, will be out in Winter 2018. I am crazy lucky to have such a great team to work with at Sourcebooks and New Leaf Literary. Thanks so much to Annie and Suzie […]

Birthday Bash Giveaway 2016!

  Posted by MarcyKate , 16 May 2016 · 162 views

May is hands down my favorite month of the year. It’s warm! It’s sunny! And, today, it’s my birthday! (I don’t care how old I get–I’m pretty darn fond of life, so I like to celebrate it :P) I’m a big fan of birthdays, and I particularly enjoy parties. And what’s a party without your friends? […]

Spring Events for RAVENOUS

  Posted by MarcyKate , 03 May 2016 · 146 views

It’s May! Which means it’s finally getting warmer, my birthday is only a couple weeks away, and Ravenous has now been out for almost 3 months (which is just crazy). It also means I’ll be crawling out of hibernation to do more events around New England, including a series of informal conversations on science fiction […]

Ravenous is out TODAY!

  Posted by MarcyKate , 09 February 2016 · 153 views

Second books are strange beasts. In some ways they’re easier, because you know what to expect, and in other ways they’re even trickier. There are expectations now from yourself, your publishing house, and your audience. Fortunately, I’ve had the opportunity to work with an amazing group of people—at HarperCollins, New Leaf Literary, online, and at […]

A Year to Maintain Momentum

  Posted by MarcyKate , 01 January 2016 · 235 views

2015 was quite the whirlwind, and I can hardly believe my second book will be out in a mere 6 weeks. I can’t wait for everyone to meet Greta in Ravenous come February 9, AND for the prequel novella Precious to be out too (it’s a 100-page story about Rosabel that will be published as bonus content […]
