We have author Leigh Bardugo of #1 New York Times Bestseller “Six of Crows” on the show with us today! Entertainment Weekly says, “…it’s one twist after another in a heist at times reminiscent of Inception.”
Everyone is talking about the beautiful madness she’s created in that book: Magic, thieves, knives, criminals, and a heist. A very, very grand heist. If you’re one of the few who haven’t read it yet, this is your chance to win an autographed copy of “Six of Crows”! What are the rules for the contest? All you have to do is pay special attention to Leigh’s episode and post your favorite quote from the interview on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. Be sure to unblock your account and tag @88CUPSOFTEA and include #88CUPSOFTEA so we can sort through and choose the lucky winner!
Leigh and I chat about everything: Her time as a professional make-up artist, an insider’s look at how authors are involved with their own book covers (if at all), the inspiration behind her books, how ‘structure’ can be an awesome writing tool, and we talk a lot about WRITING RETREATS (my favorite topic).
