Hey guys! I’ve been sitting on this secret project on the historical side of my career (writing as Laura Kamoie) for a while, and now I’m thrilled to finally be able to share my next historical book, an amazing collaboration with some of my best writer friends and some of the best authors writing historical fiction: Stephanie Dray, Kate Quinn, Sophie Perinot, Heather Webb, and E. Knight! Here’s what the book’s about, from the Publisher’s Weekly announcement:
RIBBONS OF SCARLET, a novel about the women of the French Revolution, featuring royals and peasants, harlots and wives, and fanatics and philosophers across the political spectrum who plotted, fought, marched, and crossed each other’s paths at Versailles and on the tumultuous streets, in an attempt to defend their beliefs, open new doors for women, and create a bold and equal new world–by bestselling authors Kate Quinn, Laura Kamoie, Stephanie Dray, E. Knight, Heather Webb and Sophie Perinot, at auction to Tessa Woodward at William Morrow by Kevan Lyon at Marsal Lyon Literary Agency in a good deal.
We have loved working on this novel together – and it is a novel, not an anthology. We’ve done something innovative and experimental here in using six voices to bring to life six characters, and then interweave their stories through one novel narrative. We can’t wait for you to read it – and it’ll be coming in the Fall of 2019. So stay tuned for cover reveals, and preorders, and all the fun stuff coming just around the corner!
Thanks for reading!
