Also, before you accuse authors of only being in it for the money, remember that if authors don’t make money, they can’t write books. It’s great to be romantic and passionate about your art and your story, but also this is how we make our living.

If you didn’t, you can pay for it come November. But please know, if you keep coming at authors over the unfairness of their preorder campaigns, we’re going to stop doing them.

When we do make it available, we get harassed by readers who are upset it’s no longer exclusive so what was the point of preordering? If you preordered, you got the novella for free. You don’t have to pay for it when it releases. You also got it a year before everyone else.

In my experience, preorder campaigns don’t dramatically affect those numbers. In response, we get harassment from readers because we don’t make it available to everyone.

We are usually the ones behind our preorder campaigns, often without publisher support. We finance them with our own time and money because we love our readers and want to thank them—not just because we want better presses.

I ended up taking my email off my website because I was getting almost daily aggressive emails about how I was being unfair, exploiting my readers, only cared about money, etc etc etc. Authors can’t win on the subject of preorder campaigns.

Just FYI publishing the novella wasn’t initially part of the plan for it. It happened because I was getting harassed by readers who couldn’t or didn’t preorder and thought it was unfair it wasn’t available to them.

THE GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO GETTING LUCKY, the novella previously only offered to those who preordered Lady’s Guide, is not only being released for real, it’s being released in hardcover AND digitally, AND the incomparable is reprising his Monty for the audio version!

Presenting: the YA Trans Masterlist! 💫 After hours of research, I've found 30 YA titles about trans MCs, or trans issues/experiences, written by trans people. I'm so grateful they exist, & I can't wait to add to this list!

I somehow got both my parents to watch the bachelor with me tonight. When Chris Harrison walked on screen, my mom asked "who's that?" and dad deadpanned without missing a beat "a male escort." 😂

Hi friends. I am currently working with my publisher to make Gent's Guide to Getting Lucky available to all. Regardless, this is piracy. Don't do this. Don't support this.
