OMF: Lone wolf coffee-slinger and accidental oneironaut Edie Stacks has her life turned upside down by reality-altering lucid dreams, and space cats!
Off My Feet is a Neverwhere-meets-Inception psychedelic chronicle of female experience where trust is learned the hard way, the hard knocks of life are explored, and love and friendship are pushed to their limits. Watch Edie make a mess of everything! Shit gets weird!

CK: About 30 years before Off My Feet. Five women share an apartment and Friday nights. Wine and creativity keep them well entertained and always on the brink of trouble. One doomful evening, an alien craft lands onto their building and brings mystifyingly charming creatures into their lives. Creatures they would never have suspected were sinisterโ€ฆ
Boy, were they wrong!
Read the Tragicomedy that started it all!

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!
