Fall Appearances and the Latest News on My Upcoming Books

I'm back from a short break, during which I spent much-needed time with family after a year of back-to-back deadlines and months of traveling for events. Here's my latest news:


Yesternight, my next novel for adults, debuts October 4 from HarperCollins. Readers can now preorder signed copies from Powell's Books.

Advance praise for Yesternight:

Winters follows The Uninvited (2015) with another gripping historical novel, this one an exploration of the effects of suppressed trauma and desire . . . Winters unveils the unspoken complexities of humankind in this well-written tale that is suspenseful in all the right places, and will keep readers guessing at every page.

“Cat Winters's tale of doubt, belief, and mystery drew me in from the first page. As the heroine journeys through 1920s America, unraveling layers of secrets and deceptions, including her own, this book weaves a chilling spell. Full of twists and dark surprises, Yesternight is a haunting, unforgettable read.”
—Simone St. James, award-winning author of
The Haunting of Maddy Clare and Lost Among the Living


In August I turned in my fourth young adult novel, Odd & True, and in the coming weeks I'll be hard at work on revisions for the book based on notes from my editor at Abrams, Maggie Lehrman.

Odd & True is scheduled for publication in Fall 2017, and I can't wait to share more about it in the spring!

My Summer Schedule: Appearances, Book Updates, and a Social Media Break

Bathing beauties. Library of Congress.
Hello, dear readers. I hope you're doing well.

Here's my news for Summer 2016.

My newest YA novel, Odd & True, is due to my editor in August, and I'm hurriedly working to finish it so it can remain on schedule for its Fall 2017 release. In order to meet my deadline, I won't be posting any more updates on this site for a while.

Furthermore, I plan to take a social media break from July 11 to August 8. If you send me any messages during those weeks, I'll be hiding away in a writing cave and won't be able to respond. That's truly the only possible way I'll survive. 

In the coming weeks I'm also heading to both Florida and New York for literary events, most of them kindly arranged by my YA publisher, Abrams. Here are the finalized details about where and when I'll be appearing:

Sunday, June 26, 2016
Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, FL
9:00 am-10:00 am: YALSA's Coffee Klatch (ticketed event).
11:00 am-Noon: Book signing in ABRAMS Booth #1226.

Wednesday, July 6, 2016, 7:00 pm
McNally Jackson Books
52 Prince St., New York, NY
I'll be in conversation with my YA editor, author Maggie Lehrman. Q&A and signing to follow.

Saturday, July 9, 2016
Grand Hyatt, New York City, NY
Panel - Medieval, Renaissance, or WWII? Historical Thrillers (1:00 pm-1:50 pm).

Saturday, August 13, 2016
Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel, Portland, OR
Panel - How to Break Into (and Survive!) the World of Young Adult Fiction (3:30 pm-5:00 pm).

Many of my Fall 2016 signings are already listed on my Events page, including the launch party for Yesternight, my next novel for adults, which HarperCollins will release October 4, 2016.

There are a few other fall festival/conference appearances in the works, but I can't yet announce them. Please check back around September for the updated info.

I'm extremely grateful to be so busy as an author, but, unfortunately, the deadlines and traveling have forced me to decline my assistance to numerous people who have asked me to blurb their books or to help them out in some other way. I genuinely wish I could help everyone, but I'm also raising two kids in the middle of working on my books, and any spare moment that's left (which isn't much) must absolutely go to them.

Thank you for patience. Thank you for your enthusiasm for my work!

Warmest wishes,
