The Magpie Society: One For Sorrow

It feels so strange finally being able to openly share and talk about the idea that Amy & I started talking about five years ago!

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.

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

I am so excited about this!! I literally n e v e r read thrillers, and I rarely read YA, so I’m very excited to dip my toes into both of those worlds when this gets released. I adore the sound of this concept, and when I get home for uni today, I’m going to watch this announcement video! The fact that you’re both writing from a specific point of view is incredible, and I feel like that can add so so much to the dimension of this novel/series–even though y’all are going to work together. Can’t wait to hear… Read more »

I am so excited about this! I was hoping you’d go back to fiction Zoe, and I love that it’s a thriller. I used to read more YA fantasy, but lately, I’ve been really into thrillers and crime and everything so this is perfect. I literally can not wait to read it!

Cannot *wait* to read this! I’m not usually into joint-authored books, but the overall theme is exactly what I love. It sounds like a gorgeous mixture of Dorothy Koomson’s ‘The Friend’ and Riley Sager’s ‘Final Girls’! xx
