Spooky season is upon us, and we’ve loved seeing all your ghastly IWWV snaps, so we’re giving away three signed copies this month! To enter, tag me in your best ghoulish Villains grams and use the hashtag #IWWVwitchinghourgiveaway.
Winners will be chosen by the Villains team in the three days leading up to Halloween. First place will have their first choice of English language editions (hardback, paperback, or UK edition), second place will choose from the remaining two, and third place takes the last one. Open to anyone, anywhere. Happy snapping!
In the Seattle area? Want to visit an island, see some Shakespeare, hear me talk about the Bard, and get a book signed? Then you’re in luck, because I’ll be at the Bard’s Boutique from 7-9 p.m. tomorrow. More info here (scroll down)!
If We Were Villains will be published in Spanish next year by Umbriel Editions, and I’m so excited to share the cover art with you. It might just be my favorite yet.
I’m so glad to be able to share this story with Spanish-speaking readers, and thrilled to have it published in a language (other than English) which I can actually read!
Hope you love it as much as we do.
Good news if you’re in the MD/DC area–my signing with Howard County Library has been rescheduled, and I’ll be at the Miller Branch on December 1. Hope to see you there! More info here.
P. S. Signed books make great Christmas gifts.

Click here to buy! It might just be the perfect read for Halloween.
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!
