The Kids Are Not All Right

BABY TEETH is still finding its way to new readers, and I love seeing articles like Tor Nightfire's "The Kids Are Not All Right: Brian Evenson On Making Monstrous Children." I really appreciated their summary of BABY TEETH:

Baby Teeth, Zoje Stage
This 2018 debut novel concerns a girl, Hanna, who is exceptionally bright and also exceptionally manipulative. She refuses to speak and slowly tries to drive a wedge between her parents so that she can have her father for herself. Exceptionally deft in its depiction of child psychology, this might be a book that you’d put in the same category as The Bad Seed except that as it progresses you begin to see the mother’s legacy of damage from her own mother and how she might be passing it along, as well as the mother’s desire to have her husband all for herself.  After a harrowing ride, it’s all the more remarkable that Stage puts us in a position where we can understand and even warily sympathize with the potentially psychopathic Hanna.

2020 Reading Lists

It's incredibly exciting to see WONDERLAND starting to appear on 2020 reading lists! I'm so eager for readers to have access to this suspenseful, mysterious, magical, terrifying little book of mine. 

In the past week it has been selected by Tor-Nightfire for their list, All the Horror Books We're Excited About in 2020, and the SheReads list, The Most Anticipated Books by Women in 2020.

This has been all the more surprising and gratifying because the ARCs are only just starting to go out, and I don't know if anyone has even read the book yet! :-)

WONDERLAND Cover & Pre-order

I can finally reveal WONDERLAND's beautiful, intriguing cover! 

When I first saw it I thought "Orange? That's a strange color for a novel that takes place in winter." And then all of the symbolism started coming to me, and haunting me, and I realized how brilliant this cover is.

And for those of you who are really excited, WONDERLAND is now available to pre-order!

Now On Goodreads

Good news, reader friends! My next book, WONDERLAND, is now listed on Goodreads! The book is set to be published on June 16, 2020 and the cover hasn't been revealed yet (I absolutely LOVE the cover and can't wait to share it with you!). I'd sure appreciate it if you'd add WONDERLAND to your Goodreads Want To Read list

Wow, it seems like it's been a long time coming to get this second book out into the world, but I think things are going to start picking up now. I'll be back with updates when I have them!
