AMERICAN PRINCESS has a new cover!
I loved the original cover, but a lot of folks—including me—thought there was that extra something about Alice that we still hadn’t captured. Alice was a force of nature, a bold and outspoken women in a time when it didn’t pay to be either. And she was a firecracker to boot!
That’s why this new cover is so perfect. I can’t wait until you get to meet Alice!

Here’s the huge announcement from Publisher’s Weekly that I’ve been dying to spill for the last month!
“American Princess, about Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice, was preempted, in a world rights acquisition, by Kate Seaver at Berkley. The author, Stephanie Thornton, who was represented by Kevan Lyon at the Marsal Lyon Literary Agency, sold two books in the deal. American Princess, Berkley said, tells a ‘sweeping tale’ of a first daughter ‘whose wild antics in the White House made her America’s first media sensation.’ The book, which will be published as a paperback original in early 2019, delves into how this politically connected woman went on to become a power broker ‘as the wife of a debonair congressman and the mistress to a powerful senator.'”
I’m so excited that Alice Roosevelt’s story found a wonderful home at Berkley, and that soon you’ll all be able to read about her wild and crazy antics! 2019 is going to be a great year!
The H-Team presents…

A DAY OF FIRE
(Authored by: Stephanie Dray, Ben Kane, E. Knight, Sophie Perinot, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter)
Pompeii: a lively resort flourishing in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius at the height of Rome’s glory. When Vesuvius erupts in an explosion of flame and ash, the entire town struggles to flee the mountain’s wrath: soldiers and politicians, villains and heroes, young and old. But who will escape, and who will be buried for eternity?
A YEAR OF RAVENS
(Authored by: Ruth Downie, Stephanie Dray, E. Knight, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, SJA Turney, Russell Whitfield)
Britannia: land of mist and magic clinging to the western edge of the Roman Empire. A red-haired queen named Boudica leads her people in a desperate rebellion against the might of Rome, an epic struggle destined to consume warriors and peacemakers, slaves and queens, Roman and Celt. But who will survive to see the dawn of a new Britannia, and who will fall to feed the ravens?
A SONG OF WAR
(Authored by: Christian Cameron, Libbie Hawker, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, Stephanie Thornton, SJA Turney, Russell Whitfield)
Troy: city of gold, gatekeeper of the east, a haven destined to last a thousand years. But the Fates have other planes–the Fates, and a woman named Helen. In the shadow of Troy’s gates, all must be reborn in the greatest war of the ancient world: heroes and cowards, seers and kings, innocent and guilty. But who will lie forgotten in the embers, and who will rise to shape the dawn of a new age?

I am thrilled to join Christian Cameron, Libbie Hawker, Kate Quinn, Vicky Alvear Shecter, S.J.A. Turney, and Russell Whitfield to help retell the story of the Trojan War. But this is Trojan War as you’ve never seen it before, seen through the eyes of characters you may not be as familiar with…
I’ve been sitting on this news for a while so I’m thrilled to finally be able to announce that I’ve joined the H Team to help write SONG OF WAR: A NOVEL OF TROY!
It’s the Trojan War, but you’ve never heard it told like this before…
Due out in October 2016, I’ll be telling a portion of the story from the point of view of Cassandra, King Priam’s unfortunate prophetess daughter. The poor gal’s visions are never believed, even as she tries to stop the war from beginning. I’m not sure I’ve ever had such a tragic narrator before!
