- Confession: I love Jacks. He was probably my favorite character to write in this book. I feel as if I can’t say more without being spoilery, but I hope that some of you who are doing the #legendarybuddyread with me like Jacks as much as I do. 🖤 . Where is everyone at with their reading today? I’m actually farther along than this, but I promised I wouldn’t share any spoilery bits. 😱 . . . #bookphotography caraval #legendary #stephaniegarber #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #books #ireadya #booknerd #bookish #rememberitsonlyagame

- Day two of the #legendarybuddyread ♠️🌹 . It was so fun reading everyone’s comments yesterday! I’m thrilled so many of you want to read/reread Legendary with me. And I promise for those of you that aren’t reading I won’t share anything spoilery. ❤️ . I took this picture because this is one of my favorite exchanges in the book. I remember laughing as I wrote this. I love the dynamic between Tella and Dante and how Tella doesn’t take Dante as seriously as he takes himself. ❤️ . What are some of your favorite exchanges in this book? I’d love to hear about them in the comments, or you can post them in a picture with #legendarybuddyread . . . #caraval #stephaniegarber #legendary #booksofinstagram #books #ireadya #bookphotography #bookish #booknerd

- I have my gloves and my tickets and I am ready to attend the ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI Moonlit Carnival. 🖤🎩🌙 . @kerrimaniscalco is one of the nicest authors on the planet and she surprised me with this beautiful finished copy, so of course I had to take a picture. I also FINALLY got the chance to start reading this beauty last night and I just want to keep reading. Kerri is wonderful at creating deeply atmospheric mysteries and her characters (especially Audrey Rose and Thomas) are always so delightful. I’m excited to get to know all the new characters in this book—like Mephistopheles, who runs the Moonlit Carnival. 🌙 .

- I was told this book is where I’ll find the dragons and I could certainly use more dragons in my life so I’m very excited! In fact, when The Priory of the Orange Tree showed up, I was so excited that as soon as I opened the package I immediately dropped the book. Thankfully it didn’t land on my foot, because this is a big book.❤️ . Thank you so much @say_shannon and @bloomsburypublishing for sending this beauty my way. ❤️🐉✨ .

- Happy #fanartfriday ❤️ I love this artwork of Tella from Legendary! It’s always amazing to see artists bring characters to life, and it’s also really inspiring, especially right now as I’m working to finish up some intense scenes involving this girl. 🖤 . .

That’s how I’ve felt in just about every other page of Caraval and Legendary by @stephanie_garber. So rich and fun and magical, and the way she paints her scenes with words is just wonderful! This is what popped in my head when I read “Clad in her delicate gown of sapphire-blue lace, Tella looked like a character who had wandered into the wrong story.” (Legendary).

- Usually I wait until I’m done writing a book before I print out the entire thing and reread it. But the other day I nearly reached the end. I outlined my last two chapters and my three alternate epilogues and then I stopped. I actually got scared. Something happens in the end that I’m really nervous about writing—I want to make sure I get right. To do that I think I need to give the ending a bit of space. I’ll also really just wanted to read this book and see how it feels as one large story rather than separate scenes. 💖 . . Anyone else work this way?

- People often ask me if any of my characters are based on real people. They aren’t. My characters are usually based on a combination of fears and desires that I find interesting. But on occasion I do use tiny things from real life and put them inside my stories. The highlighted line is an example of something from my childhood that showed up in this draft of Finale. Who knows if this line will stay but it cracks me up so I hope it does. 😂 .

- This video contains Finale ideas that I wrote down months ago. It was fun to go through them this morning and discover scenes and ideas that were left abandoned along with rough ideas that have made it all the way from my early brainstorms to my current draft. Fun fact: I kept more ideas than I abandoned, which is probably why I’m so obsessed with drafting via index cards. . They great thing about index cards is they allow room for creativity, but require very little commitment. It’s much easier to throw out an index card than it is to toss an entire scene that you’ve spent hours and days crafting. . If you’ve never drafted by index card, or if you’re curious about this method, since I have mentioned it before, here’s how I got about it. I start with stacks of index cards. Then I give each card a different thought, whether it’s one interesting line, or one character, one glittering piece of setting, or one trope I want to explore. I don’t think in terms of plots or outlines—I just think about scenes and ideas that make me excited. I try to be creative and bold, I try to have fun and let my imagination play. I don’t worry about what ideas I’ll keep or where they go, because for me this process is more about finding the story rather than actually telling the story. . The other great thing about index cards is that they’re perfect for starting a project you don’t actually have time to write.  It only takes a minute or less to jot down an idea, and if you do get sucked into a creativity rabbit hole where you spend more than a few minutes capturing ideas you’ll be all the more prepared when you do have time to write. . Now I’d love to hear from all of you. Do any of you write this way? Does this even seem appealing to anyone? . And is anyone else obsessed with the song maybe, I’m afraid by @lovelytheband ? I know this last question is totally off topic, but since I’m listening to this song on repeat I had to ask. ❤️ . #amwriting #amdrafting #indexcards #caraval #finale #stephaniegarber #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #yabooks #books #ishouldbewritingbutiminstagramming

- I never feel as if I have enough time. I never feel fast enough, or that I get enough done. I’m always feeling behind. When I got back from tour, a little over two weeks ago, I felt really behind. I was supposed to turn in a draft of Finale before going on tour but it wasn’t done, so I knew I needed to get to work on it right away. But I didn’t have it in me. I was exhausted—mentally and physically. So, I took what felt like a risk and I took a break. . For an entire week I didn’t write. I caught up on some emails, I caught up on normal life things like laundry and cleaning, I took about three naps a day, and I read—a lot. I actually read five books, which is more than I’d read the entire month of May. I felt a guilty about the book I was supposed to be writing. I’d asked for more time and here I was using it to read and to sleep. And it was the best choice I could have made. . This last week has probably been the best writing week I’ve had all year—maybe for the past two years. I’ve been waking up by 6 feeling excited and inspired and eager to open my computer. I can tell a difference in the words I’m writing too. I’m having more fun with them, and I’m falling more in love with this book rather than fearing it, as I had before I took my little break. . Breaks are hard for me. I want to do my best and resting sometimes feels like doing nothing. I don’t know if any of you can relate to this—to this fear or rest and this need to never stop. I think sometimes it’s important to keep going and to push through even though you’re tired. But sometimes, I think doing my best means taking a break and taking care of myself. 💖 . I wrote this post because lately people have been asking me for writing advice. So if you all like this idea, I might try to do weekly writing posts. This one was the one that was on my heart for this week because I think resting is so important to writing, but it’s something I really struggle with. Is anyone else there with me on this? And what do you all think about weekly writing posts? . . #amwiting #authorsofinstagram #onlyoneofthesewatchesworks #stephaniegarber #caraval #writersofinstagram #books

- It amazes me how much life can change in three years. When I woke up this morning I remembered that three years ago yesterday I made a choice that shifted everything. I sold Caraval, then titled Hearts Made Of Black, to @sssdb at @flatiron_books 💖 It was one of the happiest and most surprising days of my life. I’d been living with my parents for 6 years, working as an adjunct creating writing instructor and praying every day for a miracle. And it then happened. . . I’m a big Pride and Prejudice fan and I remember feeling like Jane after Mr Bingley proposed—I wanted every to be this happy, and I was especially happy because I’d brought so much joy to my family, who had experienced every rejection with me, they’d seen me struggle, and I doubt any of us imagined it would end in such a happy way. . . This is a picture of me signing a contract, although it’s not my book contract. I don’t think I was wearing makeup the day I signed those so I wouldn’t let anyone photograph me. 🙈These are the contracts I signed for Twentieth Century Fox, who purchased the film option on the same day that the book sold. It was one of the most unbelievable moment of my life. 💖 . Dreams and miracles happen, sometimes it just takes a very long time. For me it took six years, and it was worth every single rejection and every moment of waiting. . Thank you again @jennybent @sssdb & @flatiron_books for making so many dreams come true. And to anyone reading this who has a dream, I hope it comes true, I hope it’s worth whatever heartache you’ve experienced, and I hope it’s better than you could have ever imagined. ✨🌟 . If anyone does has a dream that they’re hoping will someday come true—no matter how big or small—I’d love to hear about it in the comments. . . . #dreamscometrue #stephaniegarber #caraval #flatironbooks #authorsofinstagram #authorlife #amwriting #booksofinstagram

I sold Caraval, then titled Hearts Made Of Black, to @sssdb at @flatiron_books 💖 It was one of the happiest and most surprising days of my life. I’d been living with my parents for 6 years, working as an adjunct creating writing instructor and praying every day for a miracle. And it then happened. . . I’m a big Pride and Prejudice fan and I remember feeling like Jane after Mr Bingley proposed—I wanted every to be this happy, and I was especially happy because I’d brought so much joy to my family, who had experienced every rejection with me, they’d seen me struggle, and I doubt any of us imagined it would end in such a happy way. . . This is a picture of me signing a contract, although it’s not my book contract. I don’t think I was wearing makeup the day I signed those so I wouldn’t let anyone photograph me. 🙈These are the contracts I signed for Twentieth Century Fox, who purchased the film option on the same day that the book sold. It was one of the most unbelievable moment of my life. 💖 . Dreams and miracles happen, sometimes it just takes a very long time. For me it took six years, and it was worth every single rejection and every moment of waiting. . Thank you again @jennybent @sssdb & @flatiron_books for making so many dreams come true. And to anyone reading this who has a dream, I hope it comes true, I hope it’s worth whatever heartache you’ve experienced, and I hope it’s better than you could have ever imagined. ✨🌟 .

- How far do you think I’d have to ride my bike to end up in Faerieland? . I’m almost done with The Wicked King by @blackholly but I don’t want to finish it because I don’t want it to end. I loved The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King is equally fantastic. I’m a little afraid and a little in love with every page I read. 🖤 . What’s the last book you read that you loved so much you almost didn’t want to finish it? . . #helpmefindfaerie #hollyblack #thewickedking #thecruelprince #stephaniegarber #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #bikes #authorsofinstagram #thenovl #ireadya #books
