NEWS: The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer (now available)

The Dark Wife by Sarah Diemer is a book I'm very excited about, and one that I've been anxiously awaiting for the last few months. Although written to appeal primarily to the YA crowd, this is a novel with serious appeal to all age groups.

A lesbian revisionist retelling of the Persephone and Hades myth, The Dark Wife is notable for the fact that there is absolutely no issue with Persephone's love for other girls - this is not a book about a bigger issue like coming out, bullying, etc. Instead, it's a mythological retelling, featuring a main character who happens to be a lesbian.
To help celebrate the launch, Sarah is hosting a book giveaway at her blog (! Since she is an independent author, word of mouth is absolutely key to her success. Tweet about her book, blog about it, or mention it on Facebook, and then leave a comment on her blog with the link to be entered into a fantastic draw for the following:

  • A print copy of The Dark Wife
  • A labradorite necklace made by Sarah (a copy of the one that Hades gives to Persephone in the book)
  • A sample vial of The Dark Wife perfume oil made for Sarah by The Misery/Love Co.

Sarah will be drawing a winner on May 24th, so please be sure to stop by and spread the word today!
