We’re ONE MONTH away from The Star and the Strange Moon release! I’m offering a special gift pack to everyone who orders a copy of The Star and the Strange Moon between now and November 13th as well as two GRAND Prizes! Here are full details on the pre-order campaign. I’m so excited to share some of the products that we’ve created for this book including: An “Original” Movie Poster Sticker for L’Etrange Lune, canvas tote bag and an acrylic keychain for your keys (eagle-eye readers will know what this means!)
Many people have asked me about pre-ordering the book. Is it important? The answer is “Yes!” Pre-orders are important to writers because booksellers often determine future orders by the strength of first week sales. The only way a book catches on is by being on shelves (both digitally and physically). You can pre-order the book here and at Old Town Books.
The Star and the Strange Moon hits bookstores on Tuesday, November 14th and I’ll be at Old Town Books (located at 130 S Royal Street in Alexandria Virginia) that evening at 7pm where I’ll be signing copies. After the event, the store will have a supply of signed book as well should you want one. You must register for the event and you can order books from Old Town Books here.
A few other upcoming events: My publisher, Orbit Books, is hosting a unique virtual events series called How to Write Your First SFF Novel for aspiring speculative fiction writers. The series will run from October 11 – November 15th and I’ll be doing the session on “Setting Your Story,” on November 2nd beginning at 3pm. On December 12th, I’m beyond thrilled to be appearing on the She Wore Black Podcast. I’ve been fangirling Agatha Andrews for some time and so honored to be interviewed by her (and join my literary heroes who have talked with her, including Rachel Harrison, Grady Hendrix, Alyssa Palombo and Paulette Kennedy)!
Early reviews have been great with Publisher’s Weekly writing that “Sayers masterfully weaves a tale of multigenerational secrets, creating an enticing dance between past and present that will keep readers on edge.” It’s also been included on Entertainment Weekly’s 41 Most Anticipated Releases of Fall 2023.
I’m so excited that the book is about to launch into the world! It’s scary and exciting, but I always feel a tremendous sense of relief. This book was two years in the making and I’m thrilled to hear what you all think of it.
