Pinterest boards for all my books!
And thank you for making The Luminaries a UK bestseller!
1. UK Bestseller 🇬🇧🥳
First off, THANK YOU for making The Luminaries a bestseller in the UK! There is no official list for children’s books, but apparently there are “charts.”
And The Luminaries was #17 on the charts—and actually the #3 YA book. And this was with a release day on World Book Day, when so many titles are sold for cheap!
So yay! Thank you, UK readers, for making The Luminaries a bestseller! Thank you for preordering, thank you for going into shops to buy, and thank you for supporting Winnie and the Luminaries gang. 🥰
I can now call myself an “international bestseller,” which is super cool. 💅
2. Pinterest Boards
In other news, now that I’m back fully in the Witchlands swing (and don’t worry, I’m working on Luminaries 3 as well!), I will be sharing updates for all my various books.
In fact, my goal is to try to incorporate all fandoms into this LumiNerds hub, so readers of any of my books can have access to extra content and sneak peeks.
For now, to kick that off, I wanted to link to all my assorted Pinterest boards!
The Hunting Moon — I haven’t actually made a new board for this, and I’ve just been adding to the first book. The benefits of a trilogy!
SOMETHING STRANGE & DEADLY SERIES
Something Strange & Deadly — I also only have one board for this entire trilogy and prequel novella!
OTHER STUFF I’VE WRITTEN
Shirley & Jim — this is a short story in the Because You Love to Hate Me anthology. A gender bent, loosely inspired Sherlock Holmes romance.
And beyond! I have so many private boards that I will eventually share. I like to keep things secret until I have a solid chunk of a book written (if only because my ideas morph so much as I brainstorm and draft). I don’t want to share a board with VIBES and then all those VIBES change, you know? So follow me on Pinterest if you want to see more boards in the future!

💚 - Sooz
I know many of you just signed up to this newsletter so you could learn the title to the sixth book (which is also the final book in the core series). So welcome! HERE YOU GO!
You can still read the first 75% of this book on Wattpad! Read it here! It is by far the most romance-focused book I’ve written yet! Lots of kissing…
Congrats Sooz!! I am so so excited that you are an "international bestseller" and look at how busy you are! Travel safe. Also I've followed your pinterest boards for years and since that is also how I brainstorm and work on stories it has always brought me so much joy when you crop up in my feed. I cannot contain my excitement for everything coming, and also... it may be time for a reread of executioners 3 for me. I love TE3 so much, and I've been in a romance mood.
Amazing news about The Luminaries! 💃🏼🎉 Also, thanks for the Pinterest links; I love visual inspo
