#FACSaturday Spotlight
THE CROWN'S GAME by Evelyn Skye
Today my lovely co-blogger Nicola hosted the first #FACSaturday chat with a spotlight feature of THE CROWN'S GAME by Evelyn Skye! For those of you who want to know more about the book, check out this post to see a full summary and information about joining The Tsar's Guard, Evelyn's Street Team! (I have signed up because 1) can't wait for this book and 2) WHAT A COOL NAME) I have decided to do a quick summary of the chat and the buzz around this book for those of you that missed it -- or for those of you that found it was difficult to keep up with the chat. Check out the questions and answers below...

For the record, mine was to IMMEDIATELY PREORDER IT (which wasn't possible at the time, but is now! I have left the links for this at the bottom of the post). Some of the other answers were...

And last but not least people were asked what they thought the mysterious Tsar would be like. Some of their initial impressions were...

 And at the end of the chat, Evelyn filled us in on some EXCITING information!

Congratulations to Evelyn on her international sales! I cannot wait until Fall to see the cover of THE CROWN'S GAME, which is going to be beautiful!

It was a super fun chat and I enjoyed talking to all of y'all. A huge thank you to everyone who participated! If you missed this one, tell us in the comments what you are hoping for out of THE CROWN'S GAME.

And if you were super impressed by what we talked about today, why not preorder the book!
