Cover Reveal: Some By Virtue Fall

It’s here! The cover for Some by Virtue Fall, the first book of The Seven Gods, my new series of adult fantasy novellas! It’s got everything you like best in a book: Fantasy-Elizabethan acting troupes, found-families, wlw/mlm solidarity, arson, passionate rivalries, a chaos-gremlin main character, some extremely dapper hats...

Think Shakespeare in Love meets West Side Story—except they’re all lesb

A Taste of Gold and Iron by Alexandra Rowland
Requesting it on Netgalley is your best bet! That's not something I have control over, unfortunately -- it's all decided by my publisher. Good luck!
Alexandra Rowland answered a question about A Taste of Gold and Iron:
A Taste of Gold and Iron by Alexandra Rowland
A TASTE OF GOLD AND IRON was written to function as a standalone -- that is, you'll get a complete and satisfying story in one book.
On the other hand, I love these characters so much and I can definitely imagine more stories about them! :) So we'll s See Full Answer

Some by Virtue Fall by Alexandra Rowland
"A delightful novella, which hits the ground running and never stops until the end, ramping up the stakes until all seems lost... but this is a comedy, not a tragedy, and the antagonists are not mustache-twirling villains. If you've read A Choir of Li" Read more of this review »

Quotes by Alexandra Rowland  (?)

“Who you are isn't the thoughts in your head or the fears in your heart or the name someone else gives you or takes from you. Who you are is what you do. It's the actions you take, or that you don't take. It's the way that you help people, or don't. It's the good that you put into the world, or the bad.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Conspiracy of Truths

“Because who you were is just the stories you tell yourself about yourself, and the intersection of all the hurts you've ever had and how you survived them.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Choir of Lies

“Nuryevet wasn't a real thing--it was a story that people told one another. An idea they constructed in fantasy and then in stone and mortar, in lines of ink in labyrinthine law books, in cities and roads. It was a map, if you will, drawn on a one-to-one scale and laid out over the whole landscape like so much smothering cloth. So when I say there was nothing in Nuryevet worth saving, that's what I mean: the story wasn't worth saving, and none of its monstrous whelps were either--the government, their methods, the idea that they could feed their poor to the story like cattle to a sea monster so the wealthy could eat its leavings.”
Alexandra Rowland, A Conspiracy of Truths
