Kate Elliott’s COURT OF FIVES Advance Review Copy

Court of Fives Item Name & Description: An Advance Review Copy of my YA debut, COURT OF FIVES, whose publication date is August 18, 2015, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

LBYR says: “In this imaginative escape into an enthralling new world, World Fantasy Award finalist Kate Elliott’s first young adult novel weaves an epic story of a girl struggling to do what she loves in a society suffocated by rules of class and privilege.”

I say: This book was inspired by Little Women, Sasuke/American Ninja Warrior, the Count of Monte Cristo, and Greco-Roman Egypt, and is also my love letter to girls who play sports.

But don’t take my word for it:

“Kate Elliott’s magic and mastery is better than ever. Court of Fives enchanted me from start to finish, with characters and worlds that lingered long after I turned the final page.” —Marie Lu, New York Times bestselling author of the Legend series and the Young Elites series

(It’s also gotten great quotes from Ann Aguirre, Tamora Pierce, and Gail Carriger.)

Starting Bid: $10.00

Notes: International. I’ll mail wherever. The ARC will be signed. I can personalize if you want (or not).

I will write a 1500-3000 word (that’s about 5 – 8 pages) story, drabble, essay, fake journal entry, descriptive passage, scene, fanfic, set of vignettes, or other form of your choice, set in the Spiritwalker universe, to a prompt(s) of your choosing.

The prompt(s) can be about existing characters, situations, or setting or some other aspect of the universe, one(s) mentioned in the trilogy or one(s) you might be curious about and or wish you’d had a chance to get a closer look at. I will write just about anything, including explicit sex, but I reserve the right to refuse to write certain sexual pairings and also I cannot undertake a short piece if it would demand significant research reading.
