author of books about deadly dragons, badass girls, and enemies who save each other

Preorder Campaign




Pre-orders are really important. They count towards first week sales (which are the most important sales) and indicate to publishers that readers really care about the author’s work, which is incentive for them to market that book. So if you loved The Last Namsara and want to help The Caged Queen start off on good footing, the best thing to do is pre-order it. As a big huge thank you to those of you who do pre-order, I'm sending these exclusive items:

The Caged Queen_Kristen Ciccarelli.jpg
  • a 4 x 6 postcard print of Asha

  • a 4 x 6 postcard print of Roa

  • a 5 x 7 postcard map of Asha & Roa's world (only found in some translated editions of the Iskari series, NOT English ones)

  • a handwritten letter from me

  • a signed bookplate

  • a dragon-slayer sticker

To qualify, you must send the following to before Monday, September 24, 2018 at 11:59pm EST:

  • your full name

  • mailing address (including postal/zip code)

  • proof of purchase of The Caged Queen — a photo or screen shot of your receipt will suffice!

Open internationally while supplies last. I'll update this page when supplies run out, so you can know before you pre-order. :)

Hardcover, paperback and ebook apply. English, Dutch, and German editions all apply. (Basically, any edition of Iskari #2 that comes out in September/October counts. The other translations won't be out until 2019.) IMPORTANT NOTE: If you order the Dutch edition, please send Blossom Books your info instead of me! They are taking care of the preorder campaign in the Netherlands for the Dutch edition. :)

You should get an email confirmation from me within 24hrs.

Thank you so much for the support! xo Kristen
