I’m back after a long hiatus with some very exciting news: this October, Titan Books will be releasing a special, signed hardback edition of If We Were Villains featuring fresh new cover art and an introduction by me. You can pre-order the book here or from your favorite retailer.
I’m so excited for you to have this beauty in your hands. More soon!
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?)
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.
If We Were Villains is on sale in paperback online and at a bookstore near you! Check out this great snap from the Strand–which two of the characters actually visit in the story. Hope to see it on your shelves soon.
The If We Were Villains paperback is coming soon, and we’re launching it in style! If you’re anywhere near Washington, DC, please come by East City Bookshop at 4 p.m. on April 22nd for some Q&A about the book (and if you like, get your copy signed). You can find more details here.
Good news if you’re in the UK or Ireland: Titan Books is giving away a great bundle of books (including IWWV) for International Women’s Day. You have until 5 p.m. GMT, March 9, to retweet this post. Good luck!
