A lot of people have been working together to make this special edition a reality, since way back in December of 2021. Our marvelous illustrator, Angie Hoffmeister, really captured the atmosphere of the story, and the good people at Titan Books gave it a dust jacket worthy to contain the artwork inside. As for me, I’ve spent hours at my desk, or my coffee table, and even hotel bars or elsewhere on the road, signing 25,000 tip-ins. It’s humbling to think that that many people might want to have a piece of paper I scribbled and creased and spilled coffee on; it’s surreal to see all our efforts come together in a physical object you can have and hold.
Of course, since I’m still in the States, many readers will get their hands on it before I do. But that’s okay–this book really belongs to you. Without the readers who rallied behind it, there would have been no reason to do this thing in the first place. So thanks, from me and everybody on the UK Villains team.
Time for the inevitable plug: if you haven’t ordered yours yet, you can do that here. Because they’re signed and my arms can only withstand so much, quantities are limited.
We’re excited to give you a glimpse at the illustrated anniversary edition of Villains, which will be published in the UK by Titan Books this fall. It’s a beautiful hardback, signed by me, and illustrated throughout–including the gorgeous colored endpapers pictured below. You can pre-order it here (yes, international shipping is available). Because there is a limited quantity, if you can’t stand to miss this one, place your order soon.
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.
You can pre-order the book here, or buy from any good bookshop.
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?)
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!
