Heya plebes!

Do you live in Northen California? If so, you definitely should check out the "Dive into a YA Summer" event that S. J. will be an attendee of! Check out the AWESOME line-up:
The event will be held at Kepler's Books on Thursday, June 6th, at 7PM.

I hope you do attend! S. J. is fantastic in person. Unfortunately for us SoCal peeps, none of our admins will be able to attend the event. However, if you can go to the event, please email us at thepentagonalspire(at)gmail(dot)com if you don't mind helping out a bit with an event wrap-up post!

P.S. Don't worry, I haven't forgotten about the giveaway I promised! We're trying to pull some swag together to give away as well, so that's why it's taking so long. The giveaway will be up in early June! :)

Plebe on!

ALLIES is out!

Do you know what that is?

That, dear Plebes, is the cover of the e-novella prequel for Insignia that the wonderful S. J. has written.

And it came out today! (May 7th, if you're in my time zone.)

What's Allies about?

In ALLIES, a 47-page prequel novella to the series, budding genius Wyatt Enslow—intensely loyal and hyperintelligent if occasionally, hilariously, socially awkward—takes center stage as S. J. Kincaid reveals Wyatt’s life before she found her place, and her own inner strength, among her devoted band of friends at the Spire.

To be honest, the second I saw the word "Wyatt", I full-on flailed with excitement.

So how about you? Are you going to be buying Allies? It's only $1.99! Even if you don't have an e-reader, you can still buy it and read it online. :)

Purchase: Kobo (an indie e-reader/bookstore) || Barnes & Noble || Amazon 

If, for some reason, you just can't buy it (and you're legally allowed in your country for these downloads--sorry, I know some countries are incredibly strict with their internet regulations. :( ) don't you worry!

We'll be giving away two copies here soon.  

Stay tuned!

Until next time,
