Signed 5th Anniversary Edition

Some news! It’s hard to believe the fifth anniversary of the publication of Villains is upon us, and even harder to believe there are enough people out there who have enjoyed it to justify a new edition. If you missed out on the special edition released last year, now’s your chance to grab a beautiful new hardcover with my little scribbles inside.

If We Were Villains 5th Anniversary Edition

You can pre-order the book here, or buy from any good bookshop.

Guest Post

This week I had the opportunity to share some thoughts with Superstition Review about politics, writing, what I’m working on, and making art in the age of Trump.

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!
