These Broken Stars Dress Tour!

Happy Hour

by

Susan Dennard

These Broken StarsSo These Broken Stars by the lovely Meagan Spooner and our very own Amie Kaufman (eee!) comes out in mere days. Can you guys believe it? After all this waiting and the growing insanity that is the These Broken Stars buzz machine, this awesome sci-fi (think Titanic meets Battlestar Gallactica season 3) will finally be in stores!

To celebrate the book’s fast-approaching launch, Meg and Amie decided to send the dress featured on the book’s stunning cover (glance to the right to see said dress) to a handful of friends and let us all goof off as we saw fit. Basically, we have become a sisterhood of the traveling dress–and seriously, this dress has traveled across the entire US! HOW COOL, right?

Monday, Marie Lu shared her goofy pic of the dress enjoying some…Christmas shopping perhaps? (I’m as confused as you, Marie!)

Tuesday, Diana Peterfruend got whimsical and story-themed with the dress as she traipsed through a beautiful autumn forest. (Diana: I envy your current lack of snow. Come tell my climate to stop snowing all day long.)

Wednesday, Leigh Bardugo told the dress to shut up during a movie. Darn precocious dress!

Thursday…oh wait! That’s me!! It’s my turn to share to my goofy photo, and so without further ado, I offer up the next great science fiction classic:

These Broken Lightbulbs

What do you think? Is These Broken Lightbulbs guaranteed to be a bestseller or what?

Okay, okay…so maybe it isn’t gonna hit any lists, but These Broken Stars just might! And to celebrate the book’s release and dress’s fabulous tour, I’m giving away a copy of the hardcover + book cover poster! All you have to do is leave a comment displaying your level of excitement for this series (is your anticipation as explosive as ours?) and fill out the Rafflecopter form below. Then in a week, we’ll pick a winner!

Oh, and don’t miss the pre-order offer for a poster of the These Broken Stars cover! You can learn more about the campaign here.

Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner are longtime friends and sometime flatmates who have traveled the world (but not yet the galaxy), covering every continent between them. They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the Skylark trilogy, currently lives in Asheville, NC, while Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips, and second breakfasts.

Visit the These Broken Stars website for the latest news on the series and follow the authors on Twitter at @AmieKaufman and @MeaganSpooner. You may also sign up for their newsletter as well! These Broken Stars will be available in North America on December 10, 2013.

  44. Posted December 5, 2013 at 10:30 pm | Permalink

    Sci-fi is something I’ve always enjoyed. It’s so much fun to get caught up in something that seems so plausible, but isn’t happening to me.

    I absolutely love TBS, and can’t wait for the rest of the series!

  45. Posted December 5, 2013 at 11:27 pm | Permalink

    I’m so excited I’m buying pre-ording a copy for my friend for Christmas so we can both enjoy the awesomeness that is this book and cover! Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! Yay sci-fi.

    1. I’ve been anticipating this book like craaaazy ever since Sarah Maas gushed about it on Twitter during its drafting / pre-pub stages. I love space operas, I love upstairs-downstairs romances. I love Firefly, Titanic, BSG, Doctor Who, Downton Abbey — basically every single pop culture reference this book has been compared to! So, I’ve wanted this book foreeeeeever! And it drops in a few more days I can hardly wait aaaaaah!

    2. The fact that it’s only received glowing reviews thus far has me counting down the days. I also read an excerpt that left me salivating for moar!

    3. Sooz, can I just say, you look DROP DEAD GORGEOUS in that dress! I know its a Travelling Dress, but dayum girl, you should get one just like it! :P

    I normally tend to stay in paranormal and fantasy; however, I am a HUGE fan of survival stories, and everyone keeps raving about how Tarver and Lilac must work together to survive the crash, so I’m dying to read TBS to find out if/how they make it out. I saw a vlog of Kat Kennedy, from Cuddlebuggrry, reading excerpts of TBS and acting out the parts using a My Little Pony, bobble-head Loki, and the Doctor Who tardis, and now I MUST have more! I can’t wait until next Tues so that I can have this beaut arrive on my doorstep!

    I love sci fic and have always loved anything that deals with space so I am REALLY REALLY REALLY EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK.
    I remember the days when the book had no cover and I would stalk it hoping for some sort of information about when this wonderful book would come out.
    And now there are only a couple of days left. :)
