Counting down to THE UNINVITED!

We're now less than two weeks away from the August 11 release of The Uninvited, which means that blog tours, giveaways, and West Coast appearances are either now available or coming soon! Here are the latest updates for the novel.

A Giveaway

HarperCollins sent me proofs of the gorgeous finished cover, and I've signed one to give away. Head over to the official details on my Twitter account by August 5 for a chance to win.


Preorder Signed Copies

You can preorder signed copies of The Uninvited from Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing in Oregon through Powells.com. I'll be signing the books when I'm at the store for my reading during the evening of August 11, at 7:00 pm. If you're attending the event, you do not need to preorder a copy.

Blog Tours

Two blog tours are in the works for the book!

TLC Book Tour: 8/4 - 8/20 (10 stops)
Bookslapped Book Tour: 8/11 – 8/24 (23 stops)

Keep Up-to-Date

Keep an eye on my social media accounts for more updates!



“In Winters’s dark and romantic adult novel, an act of shocking violence encourages a young woman to flee her rural Illinois home amid the influenza outbreak of 1918 . . . The author effectively captures the dangers of the period, and yet Ivy finds bastions of human kindness and acceptance. Her compelling voice carries this gothic coming-of-age story, at once horrifying and tender, toward a revelatory yet hopeful conclusion.”
Publishers Weekly

Also coming in ebook, audiobook, and library-bound editions.

Preorder a Signed Copy of THE UNINVITED

I'm happy to announce that you can now preorder signed copies of The Uninvited from Powell's Books at Cedar Hills Crossing through Powells.com. I'll be signing the books when I'm at the store for my reading during the evening of August 11, 7:00 pm. If you're attending the event, you do not need to preorder a copy. If you live far away, this is a nice, easy way to order a signed edition, and they'll cost the same as the regular trade paperbacks.

I've learned that I'll soon be receiving an early copy of The Uninvited in the mail to preview, which means that the August 11 publication date is drawing closer and closer. A blog tour is coming in August, and more in-person events are in the works.

Here are The Uninvited appearances I'll be making next month.

THE UNINVITED Audiobook


An audiobook edition of The Uninvited, narrated by Emily Woo Zeller, will be released by HarperAudio on the same day as the publication of the trade paperback edition, August 11, 2015. I haven't yet heard a clip of the audiobook, but I did get to submit my top choice of a narrator after listening to samples that HarperCollins sent me. I'm pleased to say that Emily Woo Zeller was my top pick, and I'm greatly looking forward to hearing her read the novel.
