About this author

Tessa Gratton has wanted to be a paleontologist or a wizard since she was seven. Alas, she turned out too impatient to hunt dinosaurs, but is still searching for a someone to teach her magic. After traveling the world with her military family, she acquired a BA (and the important parts of an MA) in Gender Studies, then settled down in Kansas with her partner, her cats, and her mutant dog. She now spends her days staring at the sky and telling lots of stories about magic. Monthly free short stories with Maggie Stiefvater and Brenna Yovanoff at The Merry Sisters of Fate: www.merryfates.com

Thanks for the question! I would love to write a third Blood Journals book, and it might happen some day. Right now I'm working on too many other exiting things, so I don't have immediate plans.

I'll be at Mysteryscape in Overland Park for Natalie C Parker's BEWARE THE WILD launch on Wednesday Oct 22! And at the Johnson County Library with Maggie Stiefvater and Brenna Yovanoff on Monday Nov 10th if you want to come say hi!

There's a third book in the series coming out next summer, but the title hasn't been revealed yet - that will probably happen in a month or so.

After that I have some novellas I'll be putting out, and then WHO KNOWS! I've written a few other YA fantasies and am working with my agent to sell them now. (less)

“She was asleep. In my car.

I stood next to the passenger side for a minute, looking down at her. The sun made her skin seem translucent and bloodless. For a moment, it didn't matter why I was falling in love with her. Just that I was.”
Tessa Gratton, Blood Magic

“I held up my hands. 'I thought you could use a punching bag.' See, this is me, the new and improved Nick Pardee, available to girlfriends and crazy people in their time of need.
Tessa Gratton, Blood Magic

“By lunchtime, the glitter was flaking off my mask. Three pearls dropped off and rolled down the tiled hallway.”
Tessa Gratton, Blood Magic

Krys Hi, thanks for the add. Just finished reading Blood Magic, and I utterly loved it. I plan on handselling the hell out of it when it releases in the store I work.

Just wanted to let you know...before a score of uber-excited fangirls expressed the same. :)
