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.
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!
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.
I am overjoyed to announce that A DOWRY OF BLOOD has made it into the final round of the Goodreads Choice Awards in Horror!!! This is all I wanted for early Christmas, thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
Every nominee on this list is so deserving but the inclusion of DOWRY at all is such a huge win for indie presses and for queer love stories. Readers believed in this book and boosted it through pure passion and I am eternally grateful.
I’ll be representing adult novels and graphic novels in the genres of romance, science fiction, fantasy, and horror. I’ll also be representing religious and metaphysical nonfiction, especially with a progressive or syncretic bent. I’ll be opening to queries in early October, so keep a weather eye on the horizon!
The wait is over! An Encore of Roses, the modern-day DOWRY epilogue in Alexi’s POV, is live on Substack for your reading enjoyment. Thank you so much for your enduring interest in these characters and the world they live in; I hope I’ve done their happy ending justice.
Content guidance: This is a story about long-distance relationships and ethical nonmonogamy. It features tender sadomasochism, vampire bloodplay, breathplay, consensual sex between three adults, and a happy ending.
Hello all! This Thursday at 8PM ET I’ll be chatting with Lyndall Clipstone, author of LAKESEDGE, on Instagram live! We’re going to be discussing the enduring appeal of the monstrous love interest, our favorite monster romances, and what it was like writing love stories about monsters in our own books. I hope to see you all there!
