The Queen’s Readers: A Collection of Essays on the Words and Worlds of Tamora Pierce is now available!!!!
We can’t wait for you all to see everyone’s hard work and we hope you’ll love it as much as we do.
The Queen’s Readers contains 33 essays from 28 contributors, covering a myriad of topics ranging from personal reflections, literary critiques, and character studies. The Forward was written by Mark Oshiro of Mark Reads / Mark Watches. The Cover Art was designed by minuiko.
It’s available at the following locations:
Amazon US
Amazon EU (including amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it, and amazon.es)
It’s also available for the Kindle worldwide for $0.99. (amazon.com, amazon.ca, amazon.co.uk, amazon.de, amazon.fr, amazon.it, amazon.es, amazon.in, amazon.co.jp, amazon.com.br, amazon.com.mx, amazon.com.au)
For those of you unable to purchase the book, we are working on getting a PDF version ready. 
For the purposes of transparency, we’d like to let you all know that we are collecting no profit from this. The books are being sold at cost. We will be collecting a small royalty (literally less than 40 cents) from the Kindle copies, but that will be donated to a charity. 
So run and definitely don’t walk to Amazon and start the celebration with us! We’re beyond ecstatic that we finally get to share this with you!
