Chaos HC and Backlist Paperbacks/E-Books Available Now!

I’m pleased to announce my backlist is back in print!  You can purchase copies of the Hollower trilogy books and Thrall in both paperback and e-book.  Also, there are still a few copies of Chaos left available, if you’d like to pick one up before they’re all gone….






THRALL Paperback Version Now Available

ThrallI’m pleased to announce that in addition to the e-book and audiobook versions of my novel Thrall, there is now a paperback version available as well.  It’s the first in a series of cost-friendly re-releases of my entire backlist in both paperback and e-book.  This one is a personal favorite of mine, and I hope that if you do decide to pick it up, you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

What’s New and What’s Available

For those with an burning desire to pick up something new to read (uh…by me, hopefully), then may I make some suggestions?

My short story “The Anathema Cell,” a horror/sf story collected in a lovely chapbook format from Camelot Books, is still available for purchase in either hardcover or softcover.

You can also purchase Is There a Demon in You?, which not only includes my novella Possessing Amy, but also three other excellent novellas by Brian Keene, Nate Southard, and Wrath James White.

From what I gather, one of my scariest/most haunting books to date, based on reader/reviewer feedback, is my novella, For Emmy, which is still currently available either as a hardcover or softcover through Camelot books, or as an e-book on Amazon.

A few copies (very limited in number, I suspect) of the Hollower trilogy omnibus, a gorgeous collection of all three Hollower books with the hauntingly perfect art of David Ho, are still available according to Camelot Books, as are a few copies (also, I believe, very limited in number) of the limited edition hardcover of Thrall, with Vincent Chong’s incredible cover art.

Speaking of Thrall, which still remains one of my personal favorites, you can buy the audiobook version or the e-book version on Amazon.  If you’re looking for a place to start with my work, I’d recommend this one.

I’ve also made some changes to the website, as you might have noticed if you peek at the menu bar to your right. Those little book cover images should make it easier for you to see/purchase my currently available books.

Regarding future work, Chaos, my newest (and probably darkest) novel is going into production and I think it should be out sometime in the fall, though I don’t have an exact date yet.  My novella, The Fading Place, should be out in February of 2014.  Following that will be two novellas (one is my first real foray into a monster classic, a werewolf story) and at least one if not two new novels.

And for those of you who have been asking, I’m proud to say negotiations are underway to bring you reasonably priced, accessible e-book and print versions of The Hollower, Found You, and The Triumvirate, However, this is still in negotiations and I don’t have anything close yet to release dates on them.

Also, a short story of mine will be collected in an upcoming anthology chock full of some really great writers.  More on that soon….


Spring Has (Almost) Sprung Update

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.

Hollowernew FoundYounew Triumvirate  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?

Thanks, as always, for your support of my work.  It means a lot.

Upcoming Coolness

A few announcements on upcoming things:

Fans of Jack Ketchum will want to check this space out come September 11th — I’m the 2nd stop on his blog tour promoting I’m Not Sam and I’ll be featuring a special guest blog post by him!  I’m delighted that he will be stopping by.  🙂

I understand the Thrall audiobook is on sale through Dark Realms for only $5.95 until September 2nd — now’s your time to pick one up at its low sales price!

Also, as my first foray into Kindle self-publishing, I have finished the ms for a new short story collection called A Darkling Plain.  The collection will feature 10 short stories spanning over a decade of my short fiction writing, including many hard-to-find and out-of-print stories and story notes at the end.  Once it’s up and running, I’ll post ordering details.

A short story of mine called “The Anathema Cell” should be appearing in chapbook form soon — details to follow.

Finally, for those interested in this sort of thing, I am a quarter of the way through a new novel.  I hope to be able to announce more about this soon.

THRALL Audiobook Available Now!

I just received confirmation that Thrall is now available as a CD audiobook through AudioRealms’ horror imprint, Dark Realms. It’s also available through Amazon for about $17 (free with Free Trial Membership) and through iTunes.  It’s complete with a brand new shiny cover and everything!

Check out a sample of Chapter 1 to hear Chris Roman’s excellent narration and consider picking up a copy, if you’re so inclined.

Updates and Appearances

It’s been a while since I updated the site and I apologize for that; I’ve been in the process of moving from NJ to PA and reconnecting all the wires that a move like that requires. However, I do have some news on the writing front:

* T-shirts will be mailed without fail this weekend.  They are packed, addressed, and in my car, awaiting postage.

* On August 18th, I’ll be at the 5th Annual Creator Cookout, which takes place at Comix Connection in Mechanicsburg, PA. This awesome event is held to raise canned goods and money for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Bring a canned goods donation and you can get stuff signed, eat for free, and hang out with a lot of great folks.  Guests include Brian Keene, Mike Hawthorne, Duane Swierczynski, Dirk Shearer, Kelli Owen, and me.

* I understand that Thrall is now available as a CD audiobook through AudioRealms’ horror imprint, Dark Realms.  Negotiations are in the works for audiobook adaptations of other works of mine.  News to follow.

* Upcoming publications include a chapbook of my story “The Anathema Chamber,” which has never appeared anywhere, nor is likely to for a while.  Possible upcoming publications include a paperback version of Thrall and Kindle versions of at least one short story collection.  I am also 1/3 of the way through a brand-new novel.

Looking forward to this last quarter of 2013 — I think it’s going to be an exciting beginning to a great new life down here in PA.  I appreciate all the support and help I’ve gotten from fans and friends alike during the transition. (hug)  You folks are great.


For those of you who already have The Hollower and Found You and are looking for a nice but economical edition of The Triumvirate to pick up, Thunderstorm Books is shipping copies of the Hard Rain edition at the end of this week.  There are a handful of the Collector Sets left as well, if you’re still interested in picking up the Hollower Trilogy books all together.  Paul G. will match the numbers in the set for you.  It may be a while before any of these three books appears in any other format, especially The Triumvirate, so I’d at least recommend picking up the Hard Rain version.

The audiobook version of Thrall has been completed and is the queue for release (I believe in June).  From the sampling of Chapter 1 I heard, it’s going to sound great.  Amazon is accepting pre-orders now at a nice discount for $19.77.

What’s Available and What’s Coming Soon

For those in need of a handy reference or curious about trying my work out, books of mine currently available (in varying quantities) are as follows:

is currently available for Kindle for only $4.99.  In about two months, the audio book will be available as well for $19.77, although I understand you can pre-order it through the imbedded link.  Although there are no solid plans at present for a paperback version of this book, I’m looking into options.

For Emmy
is currently available for Kindle.  Hard cover versions are sold out, but for those attending Mo*Con in two weeks, Necon in July, or Killercon in September, I’ll have paperback copies on hand to sign and sell.  Copies are limited.


My first two books, The Hollower and Found You, are available in limited edition, signed hard covers. There are very few of these left, but I understand a few copies do still remain.  These are part of a set which will include The Triumvirate.  There should be news sometime later this year regarding an audio book version of The Hollower.

The Triumvirate
will be available in June as the last installment of the Hollower Trilogy.  For those who already have the first two books and just want to read this new one, The Triumvirate will also be available as part of Thunderstorm Books’ Hard Rain Series.

THRALL Now Available on Kindle!

For those who missed the hardcover version of Thrall, the e-book version for Kindle is now available on Amazon for only $4.99.

F. Paul wilson says of Thrall: “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.”
