News & Upcoming Events

THE TRANSFORMATION OF THINGS is out in less than two months, and I have some good news to update you on! First, I got my first review from Booklist and it was a nice one, saying, "Cantor puts a unique spin on this tale of a woman in transition."

THE TRANSFORMATION OF THINGS is also going to be a featured alternate during the holidays in The Doubleday Book Club and will be available in the online club at BOMC2. I'm so, so, so excited for this book to come out and thrilled that you guys will be able to find it here!

And, if you're in the Tucson area, I'll be doing a reading, signing and talk with Janni Lee Simner and Adam Rex on September 24th at Antigone Bookstore. The press release is below. Hope to see you there!

Please join us for an upcoming event at Antigone Books
Friday September 24 at 7 PM:

Join us for a fabulous event for teens, aspiring writers, teachers and librarians with three local authors: Jillian Cantor, Adam Rex and Janni Lee Simner.

Janni Lee Simner will read from Thief Eyes (Random House, $16.99). In this intense new fantasy, 16-year-old Haley accompanies her geologist father to Iceland, where she's determined to discover exactly what happened the previous year when her mother disappeared. Adam Rex will read from Fat Vampire (Harper, $16.99). In this delightfully macabre spoof on the current vampire craze, Doug Lee is a 15 year-old overweight vampire and will be for eternity. Jillian Cantor will read from The Life of Glass (Harper, $16.99). High-school freshman Melissa's beloved father has recently died of cancer, leaving her struggling to find her way and learning how to come to terms with her grief without giving up her memories of him.

The reading will be followed by a question and answer period.
Refreshments will be served.
