A Rake Of His Own Is Out: Launch Week Shenanigans

A Rake of His Own has been out a whole week, and I’m humbled and thrilled by its reception. It’s always a bit nerve-wracking, releasing your book-chick into the wild and hoping it’s fledged enough to fly!

(You can order your copy here: If you’re still uncertain whether this book is for you, check out my Rake FAQs)

Here’s a round-up of all the Happenings this week.

Signed paperbacks sent out!

I signed a bunch of copies for Good Books to send out for those who pre-ordered Rake. I signed a few extra, so get in quick if you want one:

A Rake of His Own Gets a Shiny Banner!

Rake makes the NZ Bestseller List!!!

This is the list of the week’s best-selling hard copy books sold by NZ bookstores (so ebooks don’t get counted). It was SO COOL to see Rake make this list. Thank you so much to everyone who bought a paperback, and for Good Books for handling all the online orders!

I do an Ask Me Anything on r/fantasy!

This was a lot of fun. Thanks so much to everyone who asked questions, even the slightly tricky ones!

Whew, what a week! I’m going to go lie on my fainting couch to recover from all the excitement.
