Between Burning Worlds – VIRTUAL Author Tour!

Meet Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell on (Virtual) Tour for Between Burning Worlds!

Due to public health concerns, we sadly had to cancel all of our in-person events for the release BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS, but we’re super excited to announce our virtual tour! (Who says social distancing can’t be fun?!) 😉

And the best part about it…anyone can attend from anywhere in the world! We hope that will be you!

We’ve structured the events to feel as close as possible to a real-live bookstore event.

Here’s how it works: 

  • Purchase a hardcover copy of BETWEEN BURNING WORLDS (System Divine #2) from any retailer  
  • Fill out the form below, upload your receipt (proof of purchase)**, and choose which event you’d like to attend (see event schedule below)
  • Check your email for the link to attend the event, hosted on Zoom
  • Just like during a bookstore event, we will do a fun presentation, a reading, maybe even a game, and then open it up to questions from the audience
  • During the event, you can choose to turn on your webcam and mic to participate in the Q&A or keep them off and just enjoy the show!
  • Each event will be limited to 20 people to ensure a personal “bookstore-style” experience and to allow time for everyone ask questions if they want. So be sure to reserve your seat ASAP!

**If you already uploaded a receipt for the pre-order offer, you WILL need to upload the same receipt again in the form below.

    First Printing Deluxe Editions!

    ALL copies from the first printing will feature a Deluxe Edition of the hardcover with one of two gorgeous secret hidden covers! Which one will you get?


    A traitor.
    A prisoner. 
    A fugitive. 

    Wanted by the Regime. Destined to save the planet. 

    Laterre is on the brink of war. The Third Estate are rioting against the injustices of a corrupt system. The Patriarche, reeling from the murder of his only heir, makes brutal attempts to quash the unrest, while a new militant faction launches a series of deadly attacks.

    And three outlaws find themselves pulled into the fray…

    Marcellus is now a traitor to his planet, willing to do anything to stop his grandfather from seizing control of Laterre, even if it means joining the Vangarde, a rebel group back from the dead.

    Chatine is a prisoner on Bastille. Desperate to survive the harsh conditions of the moon, she becomes embroiled in the Vangarde’s dangerous attempt to free their infamous leader.

    Alouette is a fugitive who has been lied to her entire life. Searching for the truth about her mysterious past, she soon finds herself hunted by the Regime for reasons she’s only beginning to understand.

    But when Laterre is threatened by the emergence of a deadly new weapon, these three renegades must risk everything, traveling to the far reaches of the System Divine and into the white hot center of a planet ready to ignite.

    Order Your Copy Now »



    Yes! Everyone is welcome from any country! But you do need to purchase a hardcover copy of the book and reserve your seat in order to attend one of the Meet and Greet events.

    Yes, since we are keeping track of preorders gifts and virtual events in different systems, please upload your receipt again using the form above. 

    Absolutely NOT. Your pre-order is good for claiming the pre-order gift AND reserving a seat at one of the events. Just be sure to upload your same receipt again in the form above. 

    All of the Meet and Greet events will take place on a video meeting platform called Zoom. After uploading your receipt and choosing an event in the form above, you should get an email with a link to join the event on Zoom,. If you didn’t get an email from us within 12 hours after uploading your receipt, please check your spam folder first, then contact us using our website contact form.

    Absolutely. We respect your privacy 100%. You are more than welcome to attend the event and keep your webcam and/or microphone turned off. You are also welcome to attend with your microphone only (meaning we will hear you when you ask a question, but won’t see you.)

    PLEASE NOTE: Anyone who turns on their camera during the event will be visible to the other attendees  (up to 20 people, plus the authors.)

    In order to give everyone a personal, “bookstore-style” experience, and allow everyone to ask questions, we are limiting the events to 20 people. That means the event you want may not be available. We will be monitoring the number of seats carefully and may open up more events if necessary. But in the case that your first choice event time isn’t available, we hope that you can find another time that works.

    Yes! But, in this case, two books will have to be purchased. And we ask that you fill out the form above for each seat you would like to reserve so we have an accurate headcount of attendees. (If you purchased multiple books on one receipt, you can upload the same receipt with each submission.)

    Yes. Anyone living in your household can attend the event with you without reserving additional seats. (If you are under 13 years of age, you must have an adult attend the event with you.)

    Because we are trying to keep this format as close to a bookstore experience as possible (and support stores that sell physical books), we are limiting this opportunity to hardcover copies only. Thanks for your understanding.


    • You must purchase a hardcover copy of Between Burning Worlds by Jessica Brody and Joanne Rendell and upload a copy of your receipt (proof of purchase) to attend one of the Author Meet and Greets on Zoom.
    • You must be 13 years or older to reserve a seat at one of our events. If you’re younger than 13, please ask a parent or guardian to fill out the form for you and attend the event with you. 
    • If you don’t wish to order online, most local bookstores will take orders over the phone. Some local bookstores are now offering curb-side pick up as well. Call your local bookstore to get more information about this.
    • Limited to one “reserved” seat per purchased copy of the book. Multiple copies of the book may be purchased to reserve multiple seats. Anyone living in the same household may attend the event together with one reserved seat.
    • Open Internationally.


    Although copies can be purchased from any retailer to be eligible for our Author Meet and Greet events, we always recommend you purchase your books from a local independent bookstore to help support local business and your local bookseller community. Now, more than ever, they need our support!
