Anonymous asked

I think 1821 is plausibly the founding date for whatever company they're being held at.

maradyertheories:

I think that’s a pretty good call. who’s to say that Kells is the first person to study the G1821 carriers? maybe it’s an organization that was founded in 1821 and she is just the current leader. I feel like that’s a weird name for a gene anyways, since most of the time gene names are primarily letters.

I started journaling again. I have so many notebooks that I use for studying, or prayer writing when I have no strength to speak. And now I found this one from last year and only two pages are written about - when marius proposed, and my baptism day. So I’ve decided this will be my journal where I can write down important days I want to always remember, because it’s wonderful to go back and remember how I felt on those special days. So I’m catching up, and it feels amazing. (Those are polaroids of when we came home after our honeymoon, us in the airport, then driving home, and our first photo in our home.) ❤️

Okay, guys, here it is! The Dregs shall hereafter be known as (insert trumpets, crashing cymbal noises, someone screams in the distance)
SIX OF CROWS
So why the title change? There were concerns that the word “dregs” was unfamiliar to a lot of readers, but it also came down to the fact that while some of the members of Kaz’s crew are also members of the gang known as the Dregs (one of the worst in the Barrel natch), some aren’t, and this book is about Kaz and his crew more than it’s about the gang.
Why Six of Crows? Well, crows are allll over this book and they’re important to Kaz in particular. More to be revealed in 2015 and you can come on out and ask me all about it on my tour!

10/31 - Grisha Halloween at Books & Books, Coral Gables, FL 7pm

11/1 - Octavia Books, New Orleans, LA 5pm

11/3 - Cambridge Public Library, Cambridge, MA 6pm

11/4 - Gibson’s, Concord, NH 6pm

11/5 - Jones Library (w/ Odyssey Books), Amherst, MA 6pm

11/6 - Books of Wonder, New York, NY 6pm

11/8 - YALLFest, Charleston, SC (details TBA)

11/9 - Parnassus Books, Nashville, TN 2pm

We’re going to have an amazing Six of Crows related gift with purchase at all of these stops (while supplies last blee blah bloo) and I’ll be reading from the new book at most of them. (Not at Yallfest because honestly that would be weird. But you should still come to Yallfest because YALLFEST.)
I hope you’ve enjoyed hearing a little bit more about Kaz, Inej, Wylan, Jesper, Nina, and Matthias this week. I can’t wait to share more about them and this story in the new year. And I can’t wait to see some of you on the road in just a few weeks! Come stare directly into my eyes and tell me of your customs.
