Circe - UK Edition

UK Cover Reveal of CIRCE

Monday, September 25th, 2017 My wonderful UK publisher Bloomsbury has just revealed the cover for their edition of CIRCE!  It is gorgeous and completely different from the US version–yet I love how the two covers both capture Circe’s witchy boldness.

First Chapter and US Cover Reveal

Thursday, August 17th, 2017 I am excited to announce that the first chapter of CIRCE is available now as a sneak-peek! EW published it online, along with the fabulous cover for the US edition.  The image they use isn’t a photo, so it can’t do the amazing gold effect justice.  Below is a picture that…

UK Bloomsbury Proof!

Tuesday, July 18th, 2017 I was fortunate to get to travel to London a few weeks ago for a visit with my fabulous British publisher, Bloomsbury.  They had a pre-proof of Circe waiting for me, and here it is! This picture definitely does not capture the full gold-lettered glory, but it’s a little peek into…

CIRCE update and publication dates

Hello!  I had previously posted with bold intentions that I was going to offer a list of some of my favorite books of last year, but we are now well into June with no such list! My apologies for that, but there is good reason for the silence: I have been working non-stop on the final edits and…

I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season.  Thank you again to all the people who sent me notes on social media or through my website about their excitement for Circe!  I’m so grateful and appreciative.  Your faith in my work will buoy me through the days of edits and copyedits…
