A New Book! Meet BUTTERFLY GARDEN

After far too long of silence or really freaking depressing news, I finally have some wonderful to share!

…with the help of gifs, of course, because why not?

I HAVE ANOTHER BOOK COMING OUT!!!

There isn’t an official-type announcement, but I did get the go ahead to say that my next book, BUTTERFLY GARDEN, has sold to Alison Dasho at Thomas & Mercer, and should be meeting the world early-ish next year.

YESSSS

BUTTERFLY GARDEN is actually an adult book (I know, weird, right?), and to the end of my days I may never figure out just where this story came from. That is probably a good thing. As giddy as I am, I’m also incredibly nervous. Maybe because a second book creates very different expectations than a debut, maybe because it’s adult instead of YA, probably because it’s a much creepier part of my brain that I’m introducing to the world with this.

How does your garden grow?

with pretty maids all in a row…

All houses have secrets, but some are darker than others. When the FBI discovers the macabre collection of a sociopath, they try to piece together a crime they never could have imagined, with the reluctant help of a survivor who knows the story is far more than simply ‘what happened’.

Getting the story out of her? Well, that’s a different matter, and it leads some to wonder just what her role in this twisted garden might have been.

It's Gonna Be Fun

It’s been a while since A WOUNDED NAME sold (three years and change?) and I’ll admit, I was starting to feel a little hopeless. No matter how much hope and determination and patience you have, you hit stretches where you start to feel….well…

Sadness

But the amazing Sandy Lu persevered, and voila! BUTTERFLY GARDEN! I cannot wait to share more with you about this scary brain-child. In the midst of all the crazy and frustrating still controlling the rest of my life, this news is a much-needed celebration and shot of joy to carry me onward.

So dance if you want to! I know I am!

    I couldn’t put The Butterfly Garden down, it was the first time I’ve read a book like this (serial killer-ish) but it was amazing. I’d love to find something else just like it (hint hint). Also, this would be an amazing movie! It really was great. Thank you for writing it.

    I could not put this book down! I love psychological thrillers, and this was the first one I have read cover to cover in one day because it was that good! And I agree, I think this would make an amzing movie!! Thanks for the story!
