One Week Till That Self-Same Metal!
That Self-Same Metal will be available April 25th!
I can’t believe we’re just seven days away from That Self-Same Metal being out there in the world. What started as a short story that I just couldn’t shake, turned into a full-fledged trilogy I’m so stoked for you to read and obsess over it with me!
Read An Excerpt
“Joan felt that sudden lightness in her chest again.
She breathed deeply.
And just a moment too long. She twisted away from Shakespeare as Burbage’s sword glanced along the back of her dress. It caught the ribbon securing her hair, sending her braids flopping down her back. She stumbled forward and watched the green pieces flutter to the stage.
Enough. She couldn’t play defense forever, not with that Fae driving both of these men to kill her.”
Once you’re done reading that, hop on over to pre-order it now!
Our Famous Narrator
In case you haven't heard yet, we have the amazing Patricia Allison from Netflix's Sex Education narrating our audiobook! She gave a sneak peek on Instagram and she sounds fantastic. Grab a copy when it releases next week and let her do the hard work of reading for you.
This party is hitting the road! Come through and help me launch this book into the world. I’ll be at events from Texas to LA and NOLA and I hope I’ll see you there! Swing on by and say hey!
