Because Frockalicious is Cool

This year, I published my most frockalicious book yet. Lady Persis Blake wears nearly twenty different amazing outfits over the course of Across a Star-Swept Sea, and she’s also a certified badass. Which is how I know she’d get on like a house on fire with Lilac LeRoux, who like Persis, is futuristic, rich, fashionable, and totally awesome.

And she manages all of this in a single gown. This one:


Altogether now: Oooooooooooooh. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

These Broken Stars is the first in an amazing new sci-fi series by authors Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. Think Firefly meets shipwreck. You’re gonna love it.

Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner are longtime friends and sometime flatmates who have traveled the world (but not yet the galaxy), covering every continent between them. They are sure outer space is only a matter of time. Meagan, who is also the author of the Skylark trilogy, currently lives in Asheville, NC, while Amie lives in Melbourne, Australia. Although they currently live apart, they are united by their love of space opera, road trips, and second breakfasts.

Visit the These Broken Stars website for the latest news on the series and follow the authors on Twitter at @AmieKaufman and @MeaganSpooner. You may also sign up for their newsletter as well! These Broken Stars will be available in North America on December 10, 2013.

And here’s the coolest part. Lilac’s green gown is real, and it’s going on tour! The first stop, yesterday, was chilling with Marie Lu on the streets of LA. Today, the gown is hanging with me in our nation’s capital.

We took a little hike in Rock Creek Park. Ah, the fall color!


And by “we”, I mean me, the dress, and of course, Rio:



This one might be my favorite:


Nothing like a rock throne, amirite?

Thank you so much to Disney/Hyperion, Meagan, and Amie for letting me unleash my inner Lilac and go hiking through the wilderness in a fine green gown.

And that’s not all, folks!

    Ack! Love these, Diana! And LOVE RIO!! I want him as much as I want this book. 😉

      Rio is indeed lovable, especially when she’s in the forest. She doesn’t like anything as much as she likes a good hike.

  3. True story! I just loaded For Darkness Shows the Stars into the car w/me this morning, meaning to eat & read in the car at McD’s. But my southern style chicken biscuit w/honey was a bit too drippy and required boths hands. =( Looking forward to diving into FDStS tho! And gorgeous pics, it’s so much fun following this dress around! =)

    You look lovely Diana! And yes, one of the things I love about Across a Star-Swept Sea is that Persis has so many costume changes. I WANT to dress up as her one day!
