Second Death now available for Preorder!

Surprise! Look what just popped up as available for preorder! We’re still doing the cover reveal on February 2nd, but if you were to… Let’s say go to the Amazon or B&N website, and just happened to search for Second Death by Emily Reese, and then possibly ordered said book in ebook or paperback, well… A person might get a peek at the cover as well.

If you were to feel so inclined, the links are right here:

Have a great day, keep warm and dry!


A New Year, A Bunch of Announcements

Greetings all! I hope you and yours enjoyed the holidays. Now that they are over, I have a few exciting announcements I would like to share.

Firstly: SECOND DEATH IS BEING PUBLISHED!!! AAAAAAHHHH! As in not by me but an actual publisher, Robyn Lane Books!!

I. Just. Can’t. Even.

Here’s some important dates in regards to the official release of Second Death:

Cover Reveal Day is February 2nd. I’ve seen it — it’s awesome.

Blog/Review Tours begin February 16th.

Release date is February 17th.

April 11th I will be at the North Texas Book Festival in Denton! Click the link for details and come see me!

Secondly: For those of you who’ve read SD and been waiting… there WILL BE A SEQUEL. No release date yet, but, yeah, it’s happening.

Thirdly: Anyone who subscribes to my blog will get access to primo content from the Second Death universe — stories and such you won’t get anywhere else!

And finally, (though personally not as exciting,) I will be blogging more. It’s my un-official resolution. I’ve already got a few post stored up, so hopefully I can keep up with it. I’ll be reviewing a couple of books, highlighting a few authors I’ve discovered and loved, and of course, talking about my girls. (I’m a stay at home mom, what do you expect?)

I would greatly appreciate it if you would share this post, as well as other Second Death news, on any social media you choose. The more the better!

So mark your calendars and be sure to subscribe so you can keep up with all the exciting things happening in the coming months!

Keep writing, keep reading!


This is how I feel right now. (Also, this is from my favorite episode of Too Cute! on Animal Planet. But I digress…) Why? Well, because here is my big announcement: I HAVE A BOOK COVER!!

Would you like to see it??




Thank you to Mallory Rock for holding an awesome contest and creating such an amazing cover for me. It’s perfect.

So… what do you think? I’d love to hear from you!



I’d like to take a moment to apologize for the sudden absence in blogging. I have a really great excuse. It’s one of two big announcements, and the bigger of the two at that.

This happened:photo

If we connect through Facebook, this is old news, but it’s worth mentioning again. : )

Now just to confirm I’m the worst parent ever: I abhor being pregnant. The only thing that makes it easier the second round is knowing the end result. Which is pretty cool. Monkey has named kid 2 either Nugget (a boy) or Noodle (a girl.) The husband hates these nicknames, but it’s probably already too late.

But Emily,” you say, “lots of women don’t like being pregnant. That doesn’t make you a bad parent.” You know what, you’re right.

This does:


Given the foreseeable un-funness awaiting me for the the next nine months, and the fact that the awesome payoff is going to take for-ev-er to get here… I’m more excited (today) about my other awesome announcement.

In the grand scheme of things, it’s not as awesome as the addition of a new family member, however — it was painless and offered nearly instant gratification.

There’s a joke there somewhere, isn’t there? Ah, well. Pregnancy brain is strong with this one. I’m full of stupid.

Check back Thursday for the other awesome stuff!
