Welcome to the LumiNerds Substack!

Here’s where you can get all the latest info, sneak peeks, extra content, and GIVEAWAYS for Susan Dennard’s The Luminaries.

What is The Luminaries?

On June 2, 2019, Susan started a “Sooz your own adventure” on Twitter based on an urban fantasy project she tried to sell in 2013. She never could have guessed how much the story would explode from there!

With thousands of people participating, The Luminaries grew into an entire online community. Each day, Susan added to the story, and readers (the original #LumiNerds!) voted on which action they wanted Winnie to take.

On December 10, just over six months after the story began, they finally reached The End.

Now Winnie and the gang will return on November 1, 2022 in published book form!

It’s a new, different adventure but set in the same world with the same characters everyone originally loved. Read the first chapter of this latest iteration here!
