Just wanted to post a quick update on currently available and upcoming works:
Right now, Thrall is available both as an e-book for Kindle and as an audio book. While the hard cover version is more or less sold out, I will have copies with me to sell and sign for some upcoming appearances, to be announced soon. F. Paul Wilson said of this book, “Thrall is a feast of both visceral and existential horror – the gut tightens and the mind reels. Mary Sangiovanni joins that select cadre of women writers who are ignoring the safe old tropes and pushing the genre in new directions.”
For Emmy is also still available as an e-book for Kindle. Likewise, while I will have a few of the remaining paperback copies with me at upcoming appearances, this is essentially sold out in print form. Reviewers have said this novella is “chilling, heartbreaking, and quietly terrifying,” “brilliant and terrifying…SanGiovanni’s masterpiece,” and “poignant and creepy as hell.”
Both are reasonably priced and my two personal favorites, so if you’re looking for something to read, check them out.
The Hollower Trilogy will be reprinted in a single, superfancy superlimited edition hardcover single volume. Details to follow soon, but I can say that I just signed and mailed back the sig sheets for this and it’s going to be a beautiful book. As for paperback and e-book versions, I am attempting to get all of my backlist back in print in both paperback and e-book editions.
Regarding upcoming work for 2013, a chapbook of mine will be published titled “The Anathema Cell.” I don’t have a solid release date yet, but I’ll post it as soon as I know.
Another novella which I am turning in to the publisher this week, titled Solomon’s Girls, is due to be published in hard cover, paperback, and e-book in the first quarter of 2014 as well. Again, I’ll post release date details once they are confirmed.
A new novel (in my opinion, one of my best and scariest to date) is near completion and due to the publisher soon for publication this year. It will be a limited edition hard cover. This book is called Chaos (formerly with the working title of Bridgewood) and to celebrate its release, there will be some free stuff and fun stuff.
In the meantime, readers might find the Locations of Interest section of this website browse-worthy. It features free background material, history, and urban legends surrounding the places mentioned in all the books listed above, including the new Chaos.
Rounding out the work load, there is an upcoming story to be collected in an anthology and another novel, still in the planning stages but likely loosely based on mummy and ancient alien conspiracy stories, due out in 2014.
As always, I’ll report more information when I can. I hope you’re looking forward to these as much as I’m looking forward to writing/finishing them for you.
In the meantime, why not check out these me-places on the web for fun and frolic?
