Come Find Us at YALLFEST for some Freebies!

I’m delighted to tell YALL that Christina will be at Yallfest again this year! And just like last year, she’ll be handing out goodies! Yallfest will be from November 10-11th in Charleston, SC, so if you’ll be around this coming weekend, be sure to find her! She will be pulling a purple wagon and will be taking over my instagram and posting her location throughout both days to my stories.

Yallfest is a Young Adult book festival held annually in Charleston, South Carolina and though I’ve never been, Christina promises it’s a weekend FULL of excitement!

Because it’s an outdoor festival occurring at several locations simultaneously, I can’t tell you exactly where she will be each day (though I can guarantee she’ll be in Stephanie Garber’s signing lines both days)!

If you do find her, snap a photo together and share it on social media (and tag me!) I hope many of you will get an opportunity to meet her and get some Whimsical swag! I wish I could be there with you, but know I’m there in my heart!

A Goblin of the Glade releases on November 28th and we want YOU to join our release day street team!

Who’s ready for the next Whimsical exclusive classic?

Whimsical’s Classic Editions: Emma

Whimsical Publishing is delighted to bring you the next book in our Classics Collection – Emma by Jane Austen!

Both the dust jacket and hard case feature stunning artwork by Hillary Bardin and I created the graphic design of the cover. All preorders will include a complimentary bookmark.

Jane Austen’s Emma is set in early 19th-century England and centers on Emma Woodhouse, whose vanity and social status seem to make her believe herself worthy of meddling in the affairs of others. Her misplaced confidence in her ability to serve as matchmaker leads to romantic misadventures in this comical, witty classic novel.

This 5.5” X 8.5” high-quality hardcover, full-length novel has a wrap-around dust jacket, art cover on the inside hardback, interior illustrations & ornamentals, and a complimentary bookmark. PLEASE NOTE: This is a preorder item and will not be shipping until February 14, 2024. Click HERE to preorder!

Which classic novel should we include as the next in our series? Let us know and you could WIN your copy of Emma! 

A Crownless Queen. A Cursed Prince. One Summer to Live.

Also as a bonus for my newsletter Whimsies, here’s a little sneak peek from our newest fantasy romance – Queen of Shifting Sands by Kaitlyn Carter Brown.

“Something in the desert, in the stillness of its deadly beauty, far from the confines and demands of the kingdom, undid him. Burdens lifted from his shoulders. If the cardant beneath him bore wings, he was sure he would take to the skies until he could see nothing but stars.”

Our cover reveal will be a smidgen delayed from our original target date but never fear! It’s definitely worth the wait!  In the meantime, here’s a glimpse of the two main characters – Elerek and Lystra – illustrated by Hannah Rogers.

And for fans of Into the Churn…

It’s true!!! Book two is coming!!! And we get to have MORE of Ezren Hart and Foster Sterling!!! WOOT WOOT! Hayley handed over the manuscript to me just the other day and development edits have begun! I’ve only just read the beginning of this new tale and I’m already swooning over this couple again! Eeeeekkkk! I can’t wait for you to all have this!!!

And guess what?!

We are doing a cover rebrand for both books and it’s gonna be sooooooooo AMAZING! We’ll hopefully reveal the cover artist to you soon! (Pssst… for those who love this original cover, don’t worry, there will be a cover for book two that matches this one as well—we’d never leave ya hanging like that.)

Stay tuned for more info soon!

I hope this email brought you a smile! Remember, you can always reply to share your thoughts or just say hi! I love hearing from you!

With love,
