Frequently Asked Questions

Where did all the octopuses go?

I know, I know: there used to be octopuses everywhere on this website. But alas, I felt it was time to apply a clearer vibe to my overall branding—one that actually made clear the sorts of books I write. But don’t worry, you can still find some octopuses throughout…

Wait, I thought the plural of “octopus” was “octopi?”

NOPE. This is a common misconception. “Octopus” is actually a Greek word, so the truly correct pluralization would be “octopodes.” But no one says that. Well, except for the Greeks, I suppose.


Summer 2024 is the plan! I am working hard on the book right now, and when I have an exact date, I promise to share!

That said, if you want updates, the best place to get them is in my Writing Advice Newsletter or my Fan Newsletter!

How many Witchlands books will there be?

There will be six books in the core series (including Sightwitch)…and then possibly a spinoff later on. 😘

Do you have any news on the Witchlands TV show?

I do! I do!! But…I’m not allowed to share any of it. 😭 I promise (cross my heart, hope to die) that as soon as I am allowed to tell you guys all the coooool things, I will!

Will Sightwitch be published in the UK?

I hope so! But right now, it’s not an option. Basically, the decision to publish Sightwitch was kinda last minute — too last minute for UK publishing timelines. As such, Tor UK had to pass.

HOWEVER, you can buy Sightwitch from stores in the UK! It’s the American edition, but it is available for purchase on your side of the pond.

How many books will be in The Luminaries series?

Right now, the plan is for three! The second book, The Hunting Moon, will hit stores in November of 2023!

Will you publish your books in my country?

Gosh, I would love to! But it’s not really my choice, in the end. If you want to read the book in your country, then be sure to let your publishers know! They are the ones that ultimately decide whether or not my book ends up on your shelves.

Please come visit my town!

That’s not a question! 😉 But I’ll answer anyway.

I’d love to come to your town, but it’s not really my decision. It’s up to local stores (or schools or book clubs) to invite me! So if you want to see me — or any author! — then let your local stores/schools/clubs know!

Where can I get signed copies of your books?

Why, I’m so glad you asked! You can learn about signed copies right here.

Will you read my manuscript / query letter / synopsis?

Unfortunately, I get asked this so often that I’ve had to put up a blanket “no-reading” policy. I rarely read for my author friends anymore, in fact! I hope you can understand.
