Today, I have debut author Claire Eliza Bartlett talking about her novel We Rule the Night (which is OUT NOW!) You can enter for a chance to win a copy of the book below, too!
1.) Thank you for coming on the blog today. For those that are not familiar with We Rule The Night (and they should be!), can you describe it in a tweet?
Two girls fly magic planes in an epic war, battling their enemies, their male colleagues and each other for the right to fight and fly.
2.) Your book is set in a fantasy world, what was your favorite part in developing the world? What was the most difficult?
My favorite part was definitely comparing it to the real world spaces it was based on, primarily the USSR. It pushed me out of the usual secondary world spaces that I’m used to reading and the research was FASCINATING. It was also the hardest part of developing, though – I had to be conscious of the way I changed my world and the far reaching consequences seemingly small changes could have on an entire society.Come meet debut author @bartlebett and enter to win a copy of her book, We Rule the Night. #Bookgiveaway Click To Tweet
3.) What message do you want your readers to take from We Rule The
First, that you can do anything. Second, when you truly know what’s right, it’s worth fighting for, even when you lose.
4.) Are you working on anything right now… and can you share?!
I’m working on two projects and I don’t know how much I can share! Project one is a standalone political fantasy, a sort of mash up between the Romanovs and the 12 dancing princesses and the Shape of Water.
Project two is still under wraps, but I can tell you it’s pretty on brand…and brutal. 😉
5.) What (other) debuts are you excited to get your hands on?
My order of THE PERFECT ASSASSIN by K.A. Doore has apparently shipped…I can’t wait for it to get here! I’m also super excited for THE TIGER AT MIDNIGHT by Swati Teerdhala and THE CANDLE AND THE FLAME

Two girls use forbidden magic to fly and fight–for their country and for themselves–in this riveting debut that’s part Shadow and Bone, part Code Name Verity.
Seventeen-year-old Revna is a factory worker, manufacturing war machines for the Union of the North. When she’s caught using illegal magic, she fears being branded a traitor and imprisoned. Meanwhile, on the front lines, Linné defied her father, a Union general, and disguised herself as a boy to join the army. They’re both offered a reprieve from punishment if they use their magic in a special women’s military flight unit and undertake terrifying, deadly missions under cover of darkness. Revna and Linné can hardly stand to be in the same cockpit, but if they can’t fly together, and if they can’t find a way to fly well, the enemy’s superior firepower will destroy them–if they don’t destroy each other first.
We Rule the Night is a powerful story about sacrifice, complicated friendships, and survival despite impossible odds.
