Aaaaand, it’s finally heeeeere! It’s been a long and winding road since Elizabeth and I started daydreaming up this story in 2015, after Elizabeth had an actual dream that we wrote a book together.
Like Goldilocks and so many other books this year, Seven Devils is being released in the middle of the pandemic. Bookstores are open, in the UK at least, and the supply chain is hopefully a little less disrupted than it was back in late April/early May. But it’s still really hard to launch a book, especially now that we’re competing with big titles that were pushed back a few months due to said pandemic.
So your help via early sales, reviews, telling someone about it, and generally spreading the word is very, very appreciated. There’s so much pressure on first week sales and so ordering now really does help. And it’s my actual birthday too–I turn 32 today. The best present would be you buying a copy and hopefully falling for our devils.
A reminder that on August 6th at 7 pm BST, we will be having a virtual launch party for Seven Devils! It’ll be Elizabeth’s first ever virtual event, whoohoo! It’ll be chaired by Eris Young.
This first book in a feminist space opera duology follows seven resistance fighters who will free the galaxy from the ruthless Tholosian Empire–or die trying.
When Eris faked her death, she thought she had left her old life as the heir to the galaxy’s most ruthless empire behind. But her recruitment by the Novantaen Resistance, an organization opposed to the empire’s voracious expansion, throws her right back into the fray.
Eris has been assigned a new mission: to infiltrate a spaceship ferrying deadly cargo and return the intelligence gathered to the Resistance. But her partner for the mission, mechanic and hotshot pilot Cloelia, bears an old grudge against Eris, making an already difficult infiltration even more complicated.
When they find the ship, they discover more than they bargained for: three fugitives with firsthand knowledge of the corrupt empire’s inner workings.
Together, these women possess the knowledge and capabilities to bring the empire to its knees. But the clock is ticking: the new heir to the empire plans to disrupt a peace summit with the only remaining alien empire, ensuring the empire’s continued expansion. If they can find a way to stop him, they will save the galaxy. If they can’t, millions may die.
It’s available on Audble UK & US
