โ˜€๏ธ Yesterday was the publishing day for my twin releases – OFF MY FEET & CRASH KITTY.

I am not very disciplined with my blog posts here. You will mostly find me on Instgram (@racheltremblaybooks for books and @swell_rachelle for art)

But, I will try to do better. For now, this is my news, my excitement of the moment. Share with me and grab some copies! You can read about them here: OMF or here CK

You can also check the photos below for the blurbs on the back of the books, as well as a blurb written by the amazing Sylvain Neuvel (author of the Themis Files), and on instagram (@racheltremblaybooks) you check my highlights called OMF for some early reviews ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

I hope these books can bring a bit of entertainment into your lives.

๐Ÿ“ธ Also: instagram photo challenge!

Whoever posts pics of both books on instagram (and tags me, so I know they did) over the summer will be entered into a draw to win a space cat candle like you see here, a book-inspired bookmark and stickers that I will show soon, and 2 signed bookplates. I hope you play!

(I realize mail is slow for many so the deadline for the challenge will be August 31st)

Have a great day!!

book quote, literature, Topaz

the trees would open

โ€œOur first day traveling down the river ended. There was a sense of anticipation in the air, a hint of the importance of what was to come. Burma yanked at a blanket with his teeth. I took it from him and pulled it up over our snuggled bodies. Fiddling through my slingbags, I found some dried fruit, which we ate while staring expectantly for the moments when the trees would open above us and allow us to see the immense beauty of the night sky, its brilliant starlight showering the eventide with charm. Every time the trees closed up again, our eyelids drooped a little more, until they shut.โ€

Excerpt From

Topaz: The Truth Portal & The Color Mayhem

Anticipation can keep us going sometimes when we hit a lull. What are some things youโ€™re looking forward to before then end of the year? ๐Ÿ–ค

Iโ€™m looking forward to watching my kids dance in the nutcracker, finishing editing my new novel, finding a new apartment to live in that has a yard (and hopefully a brick wall!)

Happy Tuesday! ๐Ÿ–ค

book quote, literature, Topaz

little pygmy globe

“The sunlight gently lit up the orb from the inside, just as a candle is used to kindle another. He sighed with pleasure and passed me the little pygmy globe. I cupped my palms, surprised by the offering, and held it like a fragile, soft-shelled queepfluff egg. It was heavy and warm, and throbbed with a tiny pulse that vibrated gently through its crystal wall.โ€

Mirth as per Topaz’s Glossary – “U”

Here are a few more weird things from Mirth, Topaz’s umbi-pit playing a bigger role in this book than one would expect from a such a small body part. Check out this link: Topaz: The Truth Portal & The Color Mayhem to learn more about Topaz and her quest for freedom and emancipation.

book quote, literature, The Nirvana Threads

tiny suns

โ€œ[…] the inked words. How meaningless they could have seemed a few months before, and somehow rich with parallels now. Impressions of how they related to her existence sailed her mind, passing through in waves. Like tiny suns of understanding bursting at the crest of each ripple, the longer she sat with the words, the more intense became her clarity. And then, quite suddenly, as if stepping out of a cold sea, Carlie felt wide awake, washed clean of the dirt that had been pulling her down.โ€

glittery flats

“It all felt very familiar to Carlie yet so different. Like a worn-out pair of shoes that have been stashed in the closet for years, and when finally put back on feel funny because you just donโ€™t wear glittery flats anymore. She was not the same person as when she left.โ€œ

green eyes

“Carlie noticed only now how green his eyes were. She thought it funny how quickly a person could change in someoneโ€™s eyes. For better or for worse.โ€

book quote, literature, The Nirvana Threads

a ton of bricks

โ€œThe first guitar chord felt like a ton of bricks in her rib cage, vibrating from the inside, filling her completely. The bass drum kicked in, resonating up and down her body, and then it was the snare, tightening her skin with each whipping snap. In seconds, they had made her body feel alive with new vigour; only seconds, and the song was at full speed. And just as quickly the whole floor became a soup of thrashing, wriggling punks.โ€

The Nirvana Threads is a love story, a spiritual adventure, a nostalgic time travel to the 90s, a playful exploring of the magical.
