Jay Kristoff

Jay Kristoff is a New York Times and international bestselling author of science fiction and fantasy. He grew up in the second most isolated capital city on earth and fled at his earliest convenience, although he’s been known to trek back for weddings of the particularly nice and funerals of the particularly wealthy. He spent most of his formative years locked in his bedroom with piles of books, or gathered around dimly-lit tables rolling polyhedral dice. Being the holder of an Arts degree, he has no education to speak of.

His Lotus War trilogy was critically acclaimed in Kirkus and Publishers Weekly, nominated for the David Gemmell Morningstar and Legend awards and won the 2014 Aurealis Award. Jay’s new series, the SciFi thriller The IIlluminae Files, was co-authored with Amie Kaufman. Book 1, Illuminae, became a New York Times and international bestseller, was named among the Kirkus, Amazon and YALSA Best Books of 2015, became a finalist for the Prime Minister’s Literary Award and won the 2016 Aurealis Award and an ABIA Book of the Year award. Illuminae is currently slated to be published in twenty five countries, and film rights have been acquired by Brad Pitt and Plan B Entertainment.

Jay’s new fantasy series, The Nevernight Chronicle, commenced with book 1, Nevernight, from St Martins Press/Thomas Dunne Books and Harper Voyager in 2016. The novel was an international bestseller, won the Aurealis award and earned Kristoff his second Gemmell nomination. Part 2, Godsgrave, arrives in September, 2017. A new YA series, LIFEL1K3 has also been acquired by Knopf/Random House Kids, and commences publication in early 2018. A new series with Amie Kaufman, The Andromeda Cycle, begins in 2019 with Knopf/Random House Kids. Jay is as surprised about all this as you are.

Recipe for a Hero

I procrastinate by analyzing the hero pattern from birth to death. If you’ve noticed that all the books you’re reading sound kind of similar, or you’re writing a story but something’s just a bit off about the hero, and you can’t quite put your finger on it, this post will explain why. Spoiler warning: don’t read this if you plan to but haven’t yet read the second book in the Throne of Glass series
