Introducing “The Magpie Society – One For Sorrow”, a new YA Gothic Thriller fiction series by Zoe & Amy, to be released on the 29th October 2020!
It opens as tragedy strikes when the body of a student is discovered at their exclusive summer party – on her back is an elaborate tattoo of a magpie
One for Sorrow takes place at Illumen Hall, an elite boarding school. It opens as tragedy strikes when the body of a student is discovered at their exclusive summer party – on her back is an elaborate tattoo of a magpie. When new girl Audrey arrives the following term, running from her own secrets back home in America, she is thrown into solving the case. Despite her best efforts to avoid any drama, her new roommate Ivy was close to the murdered girl, and the two of them can’t help but get pulled in.
The two can’t stand each other, but as they are drawn deeper into the mystery of this strange and terrible murder, they will discover that something dangerous is at the heart of their superficially perfect school.
Welcome to The Magpie Society.
One for Sorrow will be told via the alternating first person perspectives of the lead characters Audrey – written by Amy – and Ivy – written by Zoe – with the narrative being jointly plotted by both authors.
My love of thrillers, true crime and a good old fashioned “who done it?” Is being channelled into something that I really hope you enjoy too.
“It feels so strange finally being able to openly share and talk about the idea that Amy & I started talking about five years ago! My love of thrillers, true crime and a good old fashioned “who done it?” Is being channelled into something that I really hope you enjoy too.
Although we’re only part of the way into the process of writing, it’s already been so much fun to work on, and there is genuinely nobody else I’d rather be doing it alongside than Amy. We’re always on the same page with ideas, plot points and characters and even though I knew it would be fun to collaborate and write alongside her, the fact that we work so well together has already made this one of the most enjoyable things I’ve done in a really long time!
If you’ve not seen the video in which we talk about the process, what the book is about and how excited we are, check it out below and don’t forget to pre-order! :)” – Zoe
