Book Deal Announcement!!

I’m super excited to announce that my publisher, Angry Robot, will be releasing a new Malediction novel titled THE BROKEN ONES in June of 2017! It is a prequel to the trilogy, and will be told from the joint point of view of Marc and Pénélope. Those of you who follow me regularly online know that I’ve been talking about writing this prequel for years, so I’m thrilled that it’s finally happening. The story was originally conceived as a novella, but it grew in scope until it morphed into a full length novel, albeit one that is somewhat shorter than what readers are used to from me. It chronicles the ill-fated love affair between Marc and Pénélope as they struggle to navigate the complex political world of Trollus, where powers on all sides are intent on using them as pawns. The deal for World English rights was negotiated by my awesome agent, Tamar Rydzinski.

I have absolutely been loving writing from Marc and Pénélope’s points of view, as they are so different from Tristan and Cécile. I hope you are all as excited to read their story as I’ve been to write it, and please head over to Goodreads to add it to your to-read list, as well as to YABC to enter the special book deal announcement giveaway!

WARRIOR WITCH hits shelves on May 3, 2016, and to help prepare all my loyal readers for the big finale, I’m hosting a read-along that will begin February 11, 2016 on my Goodreads discussion group.

The format is as follows: On each scheduled day, I will provide a summary of the chapters we’ll be discussing (so if you get a bit behind, you can still participate!) along with some FUN discussion questions. Participants can provide answers to as many (or as few) of the questions as they wish. Readers can also ask ME questions related to those chapters and I’ll do my best to answer them all.

I will provide fun facts for each of the chapters, as well as a video or post containing extra content. Readers can unlock EVEN MORE additional content by answering the discussion questions. Once we reach a certain (yet-to-be-determined by me) number of answers, I’ll post the extra content (New Tristan POV scenes, anyone?).

Readers who answer AT LEAST ONE of the discussion questions are eligible to receive signed WARRIOR WITCH swag by emailing me your name, mailing address, and the thread/date of the question you answered. Only one swag pack per person, and it’s open internationally. (danielleljensen (at) This giveaway will run through the length of the read-along.

Each week, my publisher, Angry Robot Books, will select a winner from those who have participated who will receive a signed copy of WARRIOR WITCH once the finished copies are ready! (International)

At the end of the read-along, a grand-prize winner will be selected from amongst the participants, and I will send that individual a signed and ANNOTATED copy of STOLEN SONGBIRD. (International)
