The Email with ALL the Info on Bonus Goodies
Seriously, this email has it all. 💚💚💚
Y’all, I don’t even know where to start! We’re less than a month away from Night of the Witch coming out, and Sourcebooks has pulled out the red carpet and done so much for readers as excited about this book as we are!
First and foremost: this email includes information on how to get extra extra bonus goodies mailed to you just for being a subscriber to my newsletter + a discount code on purchasing the book, so make sure you read it all!
Additionally: If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer amount of freebie goodies you can get for pre-ordering, keep scrolling: there’s one way to get everything from one store.
And, in case you missed the announcement, Sara and I are going on a book tour! We’re hitting five major cities, so if you’re in the vicinity of any of the fine bookstores we’ll be visiting, please come say hi!
Before I go into the tour information, let me first share:
💚 ALL THE BONUS GOODIES 💚
There are four things that you can get as a pre-order bonus for Night of the Witch:
A gold-foiled quote card featuring my favorite quote from the book, available from select independent bookstores across the nation
A beautiful art print showcasing one of the hottest scenes in the book (made by artist nipunidraws), available to anyone who submits their receipt
Bookmarks, stickers, and signed bookplates available as an exclusive bonus just for people who subscribe to my newsletter, aka YOU.
Signed copies—available at all the booksignings on the tour. I’ll also bring along as many bonus goodies as I can to all tour stops!
Additional shiny foiled quote card with an entirely different quote and design: available to my Patreons only.
That’s a lot of pre-order goodies! Now, to entice you even more, let me share some of the gorgeous art! First, peep the shiny gold foil print quote card you can get for ordering from select indies!!
The quote card is full color, and the word “Never” is covered in gold foil! This one pops, and the message—Love is never a sin.—is one I love and am proud to display on my bookshelves. Ordering your copy of the book from any of the above bookstores will net you a foil quote card. Please support indie bookstores!
Additionally, if you order from Adventure Bound Books, then you’ll get the foil quote card with your order AND you’ll also get my signature in your book.
💚 Available to All Pre-Orders, Exclusive Art Print by nipunidraws, shipped by Sourcebooks!
Sourcebooks commissioned artist nipunidraws to paint a scene from the book. And the scene is the, er, spiciest of all the book scenes. Are you ready for the hottest book preorder gift art ever??????
You’re not ready at all.
But here it is anyway:
As you may have guessed, Night of the Witch is a romantasy, and we didn’t skimp on the romance part of that equation. (We also didn’t skimp on the fantasy part, so be prepared for some magic of both kinds!)
To get this art print, pre-order the book from any retailer and submit your receipt to Sourcebooks here. Opened to USA/CA only.
💚 International Preorder Gift Giveaway
And look, y’all know I love swag and mailing things, so I ordered a bunch of my own stuff that I can mail out to everybody, too! This preorder gift includes a bookmark, a sticker, and a signed bookplate…but they’re only available for the first 100 people who sign up (and perhaps a handful more, depending on supplies).
You can get these one of two ways—either see me at a book tour stop, where I’ll be passing them out until I run out, or sign up below. To sign up for this one, all you need is a mailing address on planet Earth, and a promise to either pre-order or request the book from your library.
✈️BOOK TOUR!!!✈️ I’m flying across America to meet you!
When I told you Sourcebooks was doing all the things, I meant it! In addition to all the preorder goodies, Sara and I are also going on book tour!

How to Get it All
Like I mentioned above, there’s one store that is in the perfect storm—they have the shiny gold foil quote card + they’re on the tour stop to get the bonus goodies and signature + you can use the receipt to get the art print.
And that store is my local indie, Malaprops. Buying your copy from Malaprops means you get it all—you just need to also send the receipt you get from Malaprops in to Sourcebooks for the art print. But your book purchase here both ensures you get all the freebie goodies and ensures you support the arts within local communities and will also make me super happy because the book tour stop we’re doing that day is literally on my birthday, and celebrating my birthday with books and readers is the best thing ever.
We have worked hard to make sure you have tons of incentive to preorder Night of the Witch specifically because preorders matter so much. If you love the enemies to lovers trope, if you’re into historical fiction that blends in real events and locations with magic, if you want a page-turner you won’t be able to put down…this book is for you. Sara and I wrote this during a dark time, and we wrote it to bring joy into our lives. I want to share that joy with you!
But seriously, friends: preorders help. I have loved working with Sara and Sourcebooks on Night of the Witch and the sequel, and I want to make more witchy historical books! If you’d like to see more witchy historical books, then either requesting a copy at your local library or preordering a copy is the best way to make our publisher see that the audience wants this.
The Global Quest Concludes…and a NEW video game begins!
The Global Quest has come to an end, with Ellery and her friends solving the last riddle and making the ultimate discovery! And hot on it’s tail, I’m working on a brand new video game for Storyloom. If you like dark humor, this one is going to be for you ;)
As a reminder, it’s essentially free to read this choose-your-own-adventure style game—you just sign up and every day you log on, you get free coins. You can absolutely read the entire game without paying a cent—and every read helps!
What You Missed on Patreon This Month
As House of Hex nears its end, one of the funny inside jokes this novel has made has been the introduction of selkie mythology…and the way that autocorrect keeps changing selkie to selfie! With that pun in mind, I hired artist Hallie Bertling to illustrate a selfie-taking-selkie, and this little art card is going out to all Patreons in October!
This email is coming a little early this month, for all the Night of the Witch goodies, but over on Patreon, I’ve got plans for a new workshop video for writers, as well as tips on voice and more, and readers are getting to see the final scenes of the book as it starts to wrap up!
Tiers on Patreon are as low as $2 a month for readers and $5 a month for writers (who get the workshops and writer-focused elements). I’m currently sold out of the critique levels, but Patreons get first dibs when those coveted slots open up (and I’ll likely be adding more in the fall).
What I’m working on now…
New adult science fiction project: with my agent.
Night of the Witch 2: with our editor.
Adult fantasy novel: at around 70,000 words, on hold for other projects.
