TO DIE FOR: now available!

I am so excited to announce that the 6th book in the DIE FOR ME series, TO DIE FOR, launched today!

It should be available on all platforms in the next few days, but for those of you who are in a rush, it’s already available on Amazon in paperback and Kindle versions.

Here’s the summary:

Picking up five years after the events of the DIE FOR ME books, TO DIE FOR follows seventeen-year-old Louis, once numa, now transitioning to bardia. As Paris’s revenants face a new threat, Louis joins them from where he’s been living in isolation in Brittany.

Louis is tasked with giving insight into numa strategy, in case of attack. But he must also work side-by-side with Siaka, a young guerriseur and chemistry student at the Sorbonne, to establish a worldwide liaison between Flame-fingers and bardia. That is, if their budding romance doesn’t get in the way.

Through Louis’s story, TO DIE FOR reconnects readers with Kate & Vincent, Jules & Ava, Georgia & Arthur, Charlotte & Ambrose, as well as Gaspard, Charles, Bran and other characters from the beloved DIE FOR ME series. Romance, mystery, adventure, and—who knows?—maybe even a wedding.

And just to tell you what you’re getting into, the first novella DIE FOR HER is 96 pages. DIE ONCE MORE is 106 pages. TO DIE FOR is a WHOPPING 215 pages of revenant goodness. All of your favorite characters at the very least show up. (Several have good chunky roles.) And yes…there is a wedding at the end. I couldn’t resist. It’s not the principal character Louis who gets married, but that’s all I’m saying.

And an extra bonus…this is your chance to wander the streets of Paris with some old friends for Christmas.

I really hope you enjoy, and will be back often in the next few weeks with interviews, excerpts, and all that good stuff. Just wanted to get you this ASAP, after trying hard to get it to you before the holidays!

Fictshun.com “DIE FOR HER is a wildly entertaining and incredibly revealing novella told from Jules’ perspective. Released between books 2 and 3, this short story takes a look at events from the first two books in the series from his POV….I don’t usually get all swoon-y over a novella. And I almost never fall madly in love with one. But it couldn’t be helped. This story was all sorts of awesome.”
This one-hundred-page novella picks up where the international bestselling Die for Me trilogy ended and follows the eternally irresistible Jules Marchenoir as he leaves Paris behind for a fresh start in New York City.

My Bookshelf Is Yours: “OH MY GOSH ! That first kiss!”

Cheshire Cat: “For people like me who loved the Revenants series and loved Vincent and Kate’s ending, but didn’t get the closure they wanted with Jules, this is the novella for you.”

This is the year to soar high, as close to the sun as you dare, feel its heat on your shoulders, melt the wax, singe the feathers, and as you start to fall, discover you never even needed those wings you worked so hard to build in order to fly.

Notre Dame Cathedral (written 2 hours after the fire started)

I snapped this pic of Notre Dame Cathedral on April 1, 2 weeks before the fire as I walked back home from the Shakespeare and Company teen book club.

Notre Dame, April 1 (2 weeks pre-fire) walking home from Shakespeare & Company Teen Book Club.

As the flames continue at Notre Dame, I sit in my apartment just 20 minutes’ walk away, and am truly heart-sick.

The cathedral, along with the Cluny Museum, were what sparked my passion for medieval art. I lived near both when I was 23 and visited them often…first to gawk, then to absorb, then to study. I went on to get my master’s degree in medieval art history. Gothic architecture was a large part of my coursework.

I have spent so much time in the cathedral, on my own, with my kids, and with friends. Most memorably was for Easter Sunday mass, with my late mother around 25 years ago. We were both overwhelmed by the throng of people, the incense, and the grandeur of the building, and had to go sit in the garden outside.

In the last couple of years, it has consistently shown up in my Instagram feed, since I walk by it once a month, on my way to the teen book club I host at Shakespeare and Company, which is directly across the river from it.

Notre Dame is so much more than a church. It’s a symbol, and truly serves as the heart of France. One of my first thoughts was that though the Nazis didn’t succeed in blowing it up (as Hitler had planned), now, 74 years later, it is burning.

Let’s hope that when the flames subside there is enough left to rebuild. What a tragedy.
