A DOWRY OF BLOOD is back out in the world <3
Well, beloved, here we are. Step into the sacred circle, throw back the hood of your ceremonial robe, and proclaim the incantation. Today we’re celebrating the re-release of A DOWRY OF BLOOD in hardcover, looking back on everything that led up to this point, and announcing some exciting tie-ins. I’m so happy you’re here. Let’s dive in together.
A DOWRY OF BLOOD has been unleashed on the world
Yesterday, A DOWRY OF BLOOD was widely released in hardcover in the US (UK release is tomorrow!) along with the gorgeous e-book and audiobook editions. Just a reminder, the first print run of UK editions come with blood red sprayed edges, and the US edition features the first lines of the book inscribed on the hardback!
The day was an emotional one, and I was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and celebration on social media and in texts and DMs. Tonight, I’ll be ringing in the launch with Kit Mayquist at Brookline Booksmith at 7pm, and tickets are still available! If you're a reader in the Boston area, I would love to see your shining face at the event and say hello. In-person events are one of my favorite parts of being an author.
There are a lot of people to thank in this moment. My first editor at Nyx who saw the potential for a book in my ideas and helped me shape it from the ground up, the entire editorial staff at Orbit US and UK, my publicity team, the cover and interior designers, my agent, my beta readers, and my fiancé. But most of all, I want to thank you, my most dedicated readers, for being along on this journey with me. This book has only gotten this far because it's been propelled by social media and word of mouth and sheer, indomitable love. Every author thinks they have the best readers but I really do. So thank you, with my deepest sincerity.
To complement your reading experience, why not pick up a delectable vampire-themed tea that brews up blood red? In collaboration with me, Old Growth Alchemy has released a special A DOWRY OF BLOOD tea blend that seduces with notes of chocolate, cardamom, and vanilla. Grab a bag before they’re gone!
Thank you so much for being with me every step of the way through the writing, publication, and republication of this book. I’m simply overwhelmed with appreciation for you, dear reader! I’ll be back soon with launch night pictures and more tasty teasers and updates, but for now, be so well until we two meet again.
