Beth Revis is the author of the NY Times Bestselling Across the Universe series, published by Razorbill/Penguin in the US and available in 17 countries. The first book in the trilogy, Across the Universe, is a “cunningly executed thriller” according to Booklist, and the second book, A Million Suns, was hailed by the LA Times as “a fast-paced, action-packed follow-up.” The final book of the trilogy, Shades of Earth, will be released in early 2013.
A Note From Meg
Welcome to “In Search of the Write Space,” a recurring feature on my blog where authors share pictures of their work spaces, giving us all a little glimpse into their creative lives. I’ve got an amazing line-up of authors to start off the new year, so be sure to check back every week for new contests and galleries of author spaces! And be sure to check out last week’s post from Megan Shepherd for a chance to win her drop-dead amazing debut THE MADMAN’S DAUGHTER!
This week, I’ve got one of my favorite people from the YA writing scene, Beth Revis! Not only are her books pretty much phenomenal, but she’s just totally awesome. We’re like fandom sisters. I require ALL HER STUFF. Especially the stuffed TARDIS. Anyway, I’ll turn the mic over to her before I babble on too long here, but before I go: remember to check down at the end of the post, where you’ll have a chance to win signed copies of her ENTIRE TRILOGY. Yeah, that’s right, guys. Three books. All signed. All of them. Just do it, you’ll thank me later.
A close-up of assorted goodies on my desk: Prince Edward of Narnia to keep me writing, a custom MLP pony to inspire me, a TARDIS that lights up and distracts me, a crocheted octopus to play with when I need a break.
My desk--built by my husband--along with the word-decorate desk chair I just got. I usually use my laptop, not the desktop on the top shelf.
Here's the inset bookshelf right beside my desk--currently full of the different language versions of my books, as well as stacks of books that I'm going to give away when Shades of Earth launches!
This reading nook is on the right-hand side of my desk. It has some of my favorite books (so many that they're TRIPLE stacked) and a chair from my grandmother. Also, the bag hanging on the side was made by the lovely ladies at the AtU fan-site, Secret of the Stars, and holds all the special goodies I've collected during publication.

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe #3)
by Beth Revis
The final book in the New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Galactica and Prometheus!
Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceshipGodspeed behind. They’re ready to start life afresh–to build a home–on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience.
But this new Earth isn’t the paradise Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed‘s former passengers aren’t alone on this planet. And if they’re going to stay, they’ll have to fight.
Amy and Elder must race to discover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed–friends, family, life on Earth–will have been for nothing.
FUELED BY LIES.
RULED BY CHAOS.
