A live event and a new secret society
Welcome back to The Epistle, all ye faithful. Light a stick of fragrant incense and loop your prayer beads around your wrist. I’ve got some exciting news about the DOWRY re-release, as well as information about a brand-new offering I’m opening to a select group of readers.
A Portuguese Translation
Portugal, rejoice! You're getting a DOWRY OF BLOOD translation! Thanks to my amazing agent Tara, the entire subrights team, and my awesome crew at Orbit. I'm so thrilled this book is going to be in the hands of so many international readers!
The Heavenly Hedonist Club
The Heavenly Hedonist Club is where I’ll be sharing exclusive snippets, early book news, never-before-seen bonus content, and behind-the-scenes updates with my most devoted readers. Part street team, part secret society, the club is a more intimate alternative to social media and mass mailing lists.
Members will receive a digital copy of A DOWRY OF BLOOD, subscription to an invite-only newsletter, and a handwritten note from yours truly, invitation to a closed Discord discussion group, plus more goodies to come. In return, I’d love assistance in spreading the word about A DOWRY OF BLOOD and its upcoming companion novel on social media.
Applications close on 8.24.22 and prospective members will receive their invitation by 8.26.22. Membership is open to international applicants. Due to the limitations of my mortal coil, membership is limited to 50 people, but I hope to expand the club in the future.
I’m very much looking forward to reading your applications, and to seeing you in the club!
Closing to Queries
If you’re interested in querying me, this is your reminder that I’m closing to queries indefinitely at the end of the month, in just 12 days! There’s still time to get your query in, however. Check out my manuscript wishlist here, or query me directly here.
On October 5th at 7pm EST, I’m going to be appearing live and in person at Brookline Brooksmith, where I’ll be in conversation with stellar contemporary gothic author Kit Mayquist about writing the gothic, reimagining the vampire, and so much more. There will be a signing following the discussion. If you’re in the Boston area I would love to see you there. Simply register at this link and mark your calendars! This is my only live appearance scheduled for the rest of the year, but virtual events celebrating DOWRY’s re-release will be announced soon.
That’s al I have for you this week, my friends! Be safe and well until we two meet again.
