This is just a quick update to let you know the September 15th event at Howard County Library (Miller Branch) has been postponed due to the impending inclement weather. Never fear, it’s still happening! We don’t know when yet, but as soon as I have that information I will share it here and across social media platforms.
Thanks for your patience.
I’ll be talking Shakespeare and signing books at the Howard County Library (Miller Branch) on September 15th! Drop by if you’re in the DC/MD area. More info here.
Hope to see you there!
I’m so excited to share with you guys that Villains is not only Waterstones’ Thriller of the Month for May, but it is now officially a UK Bestseller.
I am so grateful to everybody who made this happen, whether you worked on the book or just bought a copy for someone for Christmas. And if you haven’t had a chance to read it yet, I hope you will! (This many people can’t be wrong… right?)
So excited to share that Villains has been chosen as Waterstones’ Thriller of the Month for May! It’s on sale for UK readers, so now’s the time to grab it.
From the Waterstones website:
If We Were Villains teases out a story of a close-knit coterie poisoned by a seed of passionate rivalry. As play spills over into something much more sinister, the scene is set for unspeakable acts. As darkly compelling and tautly plotted as any Shakespearian tragedy, M. L. Rio delivers a haunting debut of blood-sworn friendship, dangerous obsession and murderous intent.
Happy reading across the pond!
