January 29, 2015: Lots of news-worthy things have been happening, but I got a bit distracted by the birth of my first child 🙂 So! In case you missed it, FALLS THE SHADOW is now available wherever books are sold! It went into its second printing just a week after release, AND I’ve since sold a second novel set in the same world, which will be released in 2016! This next novel will be told from the point of view of Violet, the cloned sister in FALLS THE SHADOW.

Some other fun things that have happened:

  • FALLS was featured on this BuzzFeed list of the Best YA Cover Designs of 2014
  • and on this post on Barnes and Noble about “Dystopian Novels for People Who Think They’re Over Dystopian Novels”
  • Also, I’m now a client of the fabulous KT Literary Agency, as my agent, Sara Megibow, has joined them and I went with her 🙂 Be sure to note her new address if you’re contacting her about anything.

August 12, 2014: A few great new reviews for FALLS THE SHADOW have come in, including a STARRED review from Voya, who called it “A different twist on a post-apocalyptic tale [that is] a very engaging read and hard to put down until the last page”, and also one from Booklist, who called it “thoughtful and thrilling” and “emotionally resonant”.

June 3, 2014: Another new blurb for FALLS! This one is from Jonathan Maberry, New York Times best-selling author of ROT & RUIN and V-WARS:

“FALLS THE SHADOW takes weird science and makes it a whole lot weirder. Debut author Stefanie Gaither explores what happens when bleeding-edge science collides with the human experience. Highly recommended.”

 May 29, 2014: Blurbs are rolling in now; the latest comes from Phoebe North, author of STARGLASS!

“FALLS THE SHADOW offers readers high octane thrills with surprising heart; beneath this story of cloning in a corporate future is the tale of two sisters and the complicated history that binds them. This is a refreshingly real and deeply human book.”

May 28, 2014: Another lovely blurb, this time from author Margaret Peterson Haddix!

FALLS THE SHADOW is a thrill ride of a book, giving readers a frightening tour of cloning possibilities—and a reminder of the hopeful connections that keep us human. What an intriguing debut for Stefanie Gaither!

March 7, 2014: Another new blurb for FALLS!

“Eerie from page one, Falls the Shadow offers a rare thing: a real mystery set at the heart of a thriller. Gaither’s debut bristles with action, but it’s also built on the complicated ground of how we love the sisters and brothers who are thrown into our lives—the people who are closest to us in the world, but in some ways will always be unknowable.”
—Amy Rose Capetta, author of ENTANGLED

February 3, 2014: FALLS THE SHADOW has received a shiny new blurb! Check it out:
