Hi friends! Since we’re exactly two months out from launch, I’m thrilled to share all the details on where you can preorder a signed and personalized copy of Under the Surface (my Paris catacombs survival thriller coming out August 13!) and get all the sparkly goodies. And since you’re subscribed to my newsletter, you’re also getting an early look at the casing, map, and full jacket reveal.

Where to preorder Under the Surface (three options!)

OPTION 1: Preorder your copy autographed and personalized and get free bonus items: an Eiffel Tower charm necklace and a stunning silver-foil signed bookmark from Trident Booksellers in Boston. The necklace is exclusively available at Trident, while supplies last. I’ve already had to reorder supplies but since these are hand-assembled by yours truly and I’m on deadline for Book 5, once this batch of necklaces run out, they’re gone. So please order your copy ASAP to make sure you get one! Also specify how you’d like me to personalize your copy in the Notes section upon checkout. I’ll be going into the store on August 12 to sign these copies, so that’ll be the final day to get any orders in.

Under the Surface - Necklace and Bookmark Closeup

Your gift will come with the book, so there’s no need to upload your receipt anywhere.

OPTION 2: If you’d rather support your own local indie bookstore, check out this list of 80+ participating independent bookstores who are including an autographed bookplate sticker and silver-foil bookmark with each order. This is an excellent way for readers outside the US to get their copy signed (via the bookplate), since some of these stores ship internationally, including Books of Wonder and Mysterious Galaxy.

OPTION 3: Order the hardcover from any other retailer and I will mail you an autographed bookplate signed in silver ink. Please upload your receipt by August 12. (US only due to shipping costs.)

>> Preorder from: Barnes & Noble, Amazon, Books-a-Million, Target, etc.

What the hardcover edition will look like

I’m so excited to show you this early! Please note that this will be available at ALL RETAILERS. So, for example, if you order Under the Surface from Amazon, you’ll be getting the Eiffel Tower deluxe foil stamp on your casing. Hooray! Note: I’m still waiting hear from my publisher whether these sparkly details will be for the first printing only, or if all subsequent printings will also have it. I tried to get this confirmation by today, but alas. Either way, as long as you get your preorder in ASAP, you’ll definitely get it.

Under the Surface cover, back cover, and casing details

Each hardcover copy will have:

  • Deluxe purple foil stamp showing Ruby and Sean beneath the Eiffel Tower (from the scene in the first chapter, before they’re ripped apart 😭)
  • Deluxe purple foil text on the casing spine
  • 3-page map of Ruby & co.’s journey through the Paris catacombs
  • More striking illustrations on the back cover by Jeremy Enecio, who also illustrated the front cover

The full jacket will look like this:

Whew! SO MANY EXCITING THINGS! This is the fanciest hardcover any of my books has gotten, and I’m thrilled you’ll be able to get it no matter where your order your copy. And I’m grateful so many indie bookstores are supporting this book. 🥹

I hope you love these fancy details, but more importantly, I hope you enjoy the story inside. It’s a heart-wrenching survival thriller about a girl who gets lost in the Paris catacombs with three friends for days while aboveground the boy she loves races to find her. It’s fast-paced, terrifying, romantic, and will make you cry, and I can’t wait for you to read it.
