How to Get an Advance Read of EVIL

Evil-in-All-its-DisguisesIt’s hard to believe, but EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES will be launched into the world (well, the U.S. and Canada) on March 5th, 2013. It’s the third book in the Lily Moore series, and I’m excited about it. One of my favorite writers, Lisa Unger, read an advance copy and had this to say:

“Hilary Davidson delivers the goods — an exotic, atmospheric setting, a rocket-paced plot, and a bright, engaging heroine in Lily Moore. EVIL IN ALL ITS DISGUISES is a top-notch mystery — exciting, harrowing, and smart”

(All I can say is that there’s nothing better than praise from a writer you admire.)

Some reviews are starting to trickle in, too… like this one from Publishers Weekly:

“In Davidson’s creepy third outing for travel writer Lily Moore (after 2012’s The Next One to Fall), Lily checks into Acapulco’s Hotel Cerón just as a snake coils itself around her foot… Eventually, Lily discovers that she’s bait in a trap, but unsure who’s the hunter and who’s the prey or whether she can trust anyone. Smoothly sinister characters and a creepy Poe-like atmosphere keep the pages turning”

Anyone who knows me at all will appreciate how deeply a comparison to Edgar Allan Poe thrills me.

On March 5th, EVIL IN ALL IS DISGUISES will be available as a hardcover and an eBook from Tor/Forge, and as an audiobook from Dreamscape. Pre-order information is here. In the meantime, if you’d like to win an advance copy, all you have to do is sign up for my newsletter and — if you win — provide a mailing address in the U.S. or Canada. (Apologies to international readers, but I think you know what international shipping costs.) The first drawing will be this coming Friday, January 25th. There will be a couple of draws in February, too. For those afraid of spam, please stop worrying: I’m much too lazy to write a newsletter on anything but a very occasional basis (in fact, I have yet to write a newsletter at all). Nor will I give your email address to anyone else.

If you’re a reviewer, you can download a copy right now from NetGalley. Booksellers can download a copy on Edelweiss.

I’ll be touring extensively for EVIL, as my very kind friends at Crimespree blogged about this weekend. Right now, there are dates set for (in chronological order): New York City, Huntington (NY), Tucson, Phoenix/Scottsdale, Los Angeles, Pasadena (CA), Denver, Austin, Houston, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Toronto. There are some more dates still to come (the list is on my site). Honestly, I can’t wait.

PS The second book in the Lily Moore series, THE NEXT ONE TO FALL, will be out in trade paperback on February 12, 2013. Win a copy on GoodReads!
