The Luminaries



What began as an exciting Twitter adventure will now reach stores in fall of 2022. Learn more about the original story of the Luminaries below or sign up for updates here.


On June 2, 2019, I started a “choose your own story” on Twitter based on an urban fantasy project I tried to sell in 2013. I never could have guessed how much the story would explode from there!

With thousands of people participating, The Luminaries grew into an entire online community. Each day, I added to the story, and readers vote on which action they want Winnie take.

On December 10, just over six months after the story began, we finally reached The End.


Now Winnie and the gang will return in October 2022 in published book form!

It’s a new, different adventure but set in the same world with the same characters everyone originally loved. Read the first chapter of this latest iteration here!

Part of an ancient order called the Luminaries, Winnie and thousands of others protect the world from 14 spirits that slumber beneath the earth.
