I still remember the day I finished Stephanie Garber’s Legendary, the sequel to Caraval. I DEVOURED Caraval on a trip to Colorado in 2017 and just about withered up waiting for the sequel. Once Legendary hit shelves, I gobbled it up like the absolute delectable treat it was, and yet that didn’t feel like enough. I wanted to do more to express my love for this book, dang it! I wanted EVERYONE to read it!!
And this was when I became very aware of the crucial role audiences play in helping market and promote the books they love.
