If you need some fresh reading this week, I’ve collaborated with Bookshop.org to build you a list of novels I find, in one way or another, reminiscent of Shakespeare’s deeply human drama.
Don’t forget, Villains is 10% off on Bookshop for a few more days, which is a great way to support your favorite indies.
We have a very busy April on the books (it is, after all, the month of Shakespeare’s birth and death) and I’m excited to share that If We Were Villains is the Folger Shakespeare Library’s book club pick. I’ll be participating in a virtual discussion with the book club on Thursday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m. ET. You can register to attend here. I’ll also be joining director Michael Witmore for a conversation as part of the Virtually Everything series, available only to library members, at 5:30 p.m. ET on Wednesday, April 13. You can become a member and find event details here.
Hope to see you soon.
Great news: in honor of the Ides of March, we’ve partnered with Goodreads to host a giveaway of 100 US ebooks of If We Were Villains. You can enter here through March 25th.
May the Bard be with you.
Please forgive me for the long delay in posting! I have no better excuse than being overwhelmed with work and life in general. Today’s Reddit AMA reminded me that it’s been far too long since I updated the events page of this website, which I have now done! More to come, but in the meantime you can find a link to this afternoon’s AMA, as well as upcoming appearances.
Hope to see you soon.
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!
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!
Because we’ve been seeing so many wonderful holiday snaps of If We Were Villains on social media, we decided to do a seasonal giveaway! Between tomorrow and January 1st, you’ll have the opportunity to enter to win your choice of (1) a signed US hardcover, (2) a signed UK paperback, or (3) a US audiobook. All you need to enter is your email address, but you can improve your odds by following me on social media or sharing your favorite quotes and photos from Villains (no spoilers, please). Just be sure to use the tags #IWWV and #IWWVHolidayGiveaway so we can find your entries. More details are included on the RaffleCopter page, where you can officially enter, starting at 12:00 a.m., December 21st, US Central Time. (And yes! This giveaway is international.)
Good luck, and happy reading!
If you need something a little less dire to read than the ongoing tax debacle in the U. S. Senate, I did an interview with Superstition Review where I talked about If We Were Villains, writing, writing If We Were Villains, acting, authorship, and everything in between. You can find it here!
