Grace and Fury


It’s hard to believe GRACE AND FURY comes out in the US on July 31st, even harder to wrap my head around the fact that the German edition is already on shelves! And the Italian edition is coming on May 29th! I don’t know if it’s common or not for foreign editions of books to publish before the US version, but it’s been a thrill to see the response from German readers. I’m so grateful to all of you for picking IRON FLOWERS up and for reviewing on Goodreads and Amazon!

We’re now just about two months from the US release and I have a lot of fun things coming up! If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter, now’s a good time! In the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some preorder incentives and super cool swag, and my newsletter subscribers will be the first to know all about it.

This summer I am honored to join Dhonielle Clayton and Zoraida Cordova for their Belles and Brujas tour! I’ll be joining them in St Louis, MO on Thursday, June 21 at 7pm. Read more about our specific event HERE and about the tour in general HERE. I hope if you live nearby you’ll come out and see us! Copies of GRACE AND FURY won’t be available yet, but I’ll be handing out some super fun swag and Dhonielle and Zoraida will be signing their books (which are incredible. If you haven’t yet, YOU SHOULD READ THEM.)

Another event to keep on your radar: The GRACE AND FURY launch party will be held at Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh, NC on Saturday August 4th at 2pm. Please come join the party! Click HERE for more info and to preorder a copy!

Hello my friends! In honor of GRACE AND FURY’s cover reveal (if you missed it, here’s the link to the reveal and Q&A), I decided to do a little revamping of my own. Huge, huge thanks to the incredible Hafsah at Icey Designs for creating this beautiful new web design, making it sparkle (literally!), and helping my web-challenged brain figure out how to actually USE the darn thing. I freaking LOVE it, especially the fact that it incorporates a photograph I took from my favorite place in the whole world. (Also, did I mention the sparkle??)

SO! To celebrate GRACE AND FURY’s beautiful cover, and my website’s beautiful new look, I want to give away the VERY FIRST advance copy of GRACE AND FURY. Signed, of course! (This contest is US only, sorry! Shipping is already so expensive from Hawaii.)

Here’s the dish on GRACE AND FURY:

In a world where women have no rights, sisters Serina and Nomi Tessaro face two very different fates: one in the palace, the other in prison.

Serina has been groomed her whole life to become a Grace–someone to stand by the heir to the throne as a shining, subjugated example of the perfect woman. But when her headstrong and rebellious younger sister, Nomi, catches the heir’s eye, it’s Serina who takes the fall for the dangerous secret that Nomi has been hiding.

Now trapped in a life she never wanted, Nomi has only one way to save Serina: surrender to her role as a Grace until she can use her position to release her sister. This is easier said than done. A traitor walks the halls of the palace, and deception lurks in every corner. But Serina is running out of time, imprisoned on an island where she must fight to the death to survive and one wrong move could cost her everything.

So, yeah. Lots of intrigue, secrets, fighting, romance, all set in a beautiful palace and a brutal volcanic island prison. And YOU can be the very first to read it (9 whole months early!)! Just enter below, and help me spread the word! Oh, and before you go, drop a comment and let me know what you think of the new website!
