Burden Falls is out now!

As of yesterday, Burden Falls (the US title of the book otherwise known as Wicked Little Deeds) is out now in the US and Canada! Release day was an amazing mix of online excitement, at home celebrations, and generally eating a lot of cake. 

If you would like to grab a copy of Burden Falls, please buy it from your local indie retailer or, if you prefer, order online -- there are links to the right if you'd like to use those. 

I'll be retreating into my writing cave for most of September, but if you'd like updates on what I'm up to and a chance to win one of any of my August releases (this includes Burden Falls, Wicked Little Deeds, and the US paperback edition of Harrow Lake which also released yesterday) the best way to get all the info is by signing up to my newsletter

I'll be back online more in October, and looking forward to all the Halloween festivities.

Until then...

Preorder goodies!

To any of you who have already preordered my new book: thank you so, so much. It means the world that you want to read it, and preordering makes a huge difference (it lets my publishers know you’re keen to see more books from me, for starters!) If you have or are going to preorder, I have some book swag that I will gladly send you as a thank you.

There are 2 sets to go with the 2 different editions, and each includes a signed bookplate, Dead-Eyed Sadie sticker, and a postcard. If you’d like to claim a set, simply email your proof of purchase to and let me know in the subject line if you’d like the Burden Falls swag or the Wicked Little Deeds swag, and of course include in the email the address you’d like me to send it to 😊

This offer will run until the day before it comes out — so until 4 August for Wicked Little Deeds, or 23 August for Burden Falls, unless I run out of swag before then (highly unlikely, because I ordered a lot).

Wicked Little Deeds comes out in one month!

Eek! It's now just one month until Wicked Little Deeds hits shelves in the UK (a couple of weeks longer until its US counterpart, Burden Falls, releases on 24 August). 

If you preorder, keep your receipts because I will be offering some cool swag to those who do  -- there are some handy buy links over on the right.

Wicked Little Deeds cover reveal!

 I'm so excited to share the gorgeous cover for Wicked Little Deeds (the book known as Burden Falls in the US) -- isn't she pretty??

Thanks so much to the designers at Puffin for another amazing cover! Can't wait to hold a finished copy in my hands.

Burden Falls cover reveal

Greetings from my writing desk :)

Just hopping on here to shout about the amazing cover reveal for Burden Falls my US publisher shared yesterday. And it wasn't just the cover, either -- they shared a sneaky snippet from the book!

Check out the full thing here

Since that was released, I've had a few people ask me about ARCs and how to get one. I think they'll be coming in a month or so, and as soon as I have a spare I'll run a giveaway through my newsletter (which is always the best place to stay up to date on my book stuff!) If you haven't signed up yet, click the subscribe button at the top of this page. You can also read my most recent newsletter here for a taste of what you're in for. 

Just a reminder: Burden Falls is the US title for Wicked Little Deeds, but they both have the same innards that I hope you'll all love. 

Oh, and it would also be lovely if you added Burden Falls/Wicked Little Deeds to your Goodreads TBR, which you can do right here.

That's all for now!
