This is an exciting week for Jessica Spotswood and we, her merry crew!
A Tyranny of Petticoats has a number of glowing reviews, including a starred review from Booklist that calls it “historical fiction at its finest… The heroines are tough and memorable and full of heart, and the concept is irresistible. Stock up—this one will practically sell itself.”
Pre-orders are now underway! If you are in the U.S. and order it from indie bookstore One More Page, you can get a copy signed by Jessica Spotswood, Caroline Richmond, Lindsay Smith and Robin Talley. The first 50 orders will also receive a print of the book’s timeline, created by Simini Blocker.
Isn’t it terrific? I love the energy in the work: Blocker captures the most vivid, decisive element of each girl’s story. And, of course, I adore the wicked expression she’s given my main character, Lily Garrett of “The Legendary Garrett Girls”. Can you guess which one is Lily?
Exclusive Canadian Giveaway
I feel bad that only U.S. addresses are eligible for the pre-order campaign, so here’s my plan: I will send a copy of Blocker’s timeline to the first five Canadian pre-orders, too.
Here’s the link to pre-order if you’re in the States.
If you’re in Canada, email me [ying at yslee dot com] a photo or screenshot of your receipt.
And let the tyranny of petticoats begin!
