Of course, I’m excited. I’m also nervous. In a publishing culture that calls for categorization, Eve’s Thieves defies being easily dropped into a slot.
Promotional material for the book categorizes it as mystery and horror, which it is. But it’s also in the realm of dark fantasy, urban fantasy and magic realism, and which one it is may be up to the reader.
And, in the midst of it all, there’s a major romance plot in the book, too!
Here’s the blurb:
A group of women have been the victims of some unusual thefts. They have had, not items, but aspects of their physical being, such as their heights, builds and youth stolen via dark magic. To stop the thieves and restore themselves, they band together to defeat the loose confederation known as Eve's Thieves. To do it, they must battle an ancient evil, deal with betrayal … and face the darkness within themselves. But they soon find that little is as it seems. Can they trust anyone -- even each other? Who is the leader of the group known as Eve’s Thieves? What will it take to stop her … and will any of them survive to do it?
And there are other events around the release, as well:
