Itโ€™s soooo hard choosing a quote from my own books. Something solid enough on its own and that wonโ€™t spoil anythingโ€ฆ I spent way too much time trying to find something for you, I settled for kisses ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹

Hope youโ€™re having a good day, being kind, keeping an inner eye out for implicit biases and weeding them out. Itโ€™s a work of awareness and itโ€™s constant and scary but also intensely satisfying. Growing hurts but itโ€™s still the very best thing for us and the world we live in.

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!!

Off My Feet & Crash Kitty COVER REVEALS

TWIN RELEASE COVER REVEAL!

Hello hello!! So happy to share the covers for my upcoming novels OFF MY FEET & CRASH KITTY, twin releases sneaking into your tbr on June 16th!

Check OMF & CK pages pre-order links! and yes the sizes match with the Topaz paperback too!

๐—ข๐— ๐—™ is the story of Edie stacks, an accidental oneironaut (dream explorer) with trust issues, a love of free plants and cheap records, and a serious alien problem. Watch Edie shape reality with lucid dreams and make a mess of everything.

Expect: Cussing, realness, psychedelic dreams scenes, Phil Collins, and hotness (not with Phil Collins.) Also, cats.

๐—–๐—ž is a prequel novella to be read afterwards, though really itโ€™s up to you. This story happens 30 years prior, one where we learn about the arrival of the aliens and the lives of four women and the ridiculous trouble they get into on a particularly creative, inebriated night. Shit gets dark, but itโ€™s a hella fun ride first.

Expect: giggles, bad ideas, a bit of gore, John Mayer, and some hotness (not with John Mayer). Also some emotional shit. And cats.

You guys are the best!!!

Ps. You can find these on goodreads!
