A DOWRY OF BLOOD has been acquired by Orbit!

I’m ecstatic to announce that the marvelous editorial team at Orbit and Orbit UK has acquired my Dracula’s brides retelling, A DOWRY OF BLOOD. The book will be re-released in a sexy new hardcover this October, just in time for spooky season, and ebooks are still available across retailers to read now!

If you read the announcement closely you’ll see that this is a two book deal! That means I’ll be writing another book in the DOWRY OF BLOOD universe, which will be coming to you in 2023! I can’t wait to share more with you about this twisty, sexy new installment in the series. And now *drumroll* it’s time to unveil the new DOWRY hardback cover!

I’m thrilled to reveal the new hardback cover for A DOWRY OF BLOOD, designed by Duncan Spilling. Our aim was to maintain the sensuality and gothic flair of Marlowe Lune’s gorgeous original cover while opting for a sleek, striking design, and I’m quite pleased with the result.

A DOWRY OF BLOOD is going to Italy!

I’m overjoyed to announce that A DOWRY OF BLOOD is going to be translated into Italian by Tiffany Vecchietti and published by Mondadori. The news took me completely by surprise, and I never dreamed that my little vampire book would be travelling around the world and being translated into different languages! Fingers crossed that this is just the first of many translations to come!

DOWRY Paperbacks Are Going Out Of Stock!

Paperback editions of A DOWRY OF BLOOD will be going out of stock across retailers on December 10th. I’m not at liberty to say why just yet, but I have some exciting news coming to you in the new year. In the meantime, grab your paperbacks before they’re gone!

With holiday supply chain issues rearing their ugly heads, it’s especially imperative that you order before the 10th if you want to gift the book for Christmas, or to have your own copy in the new year.
