It's the year of The Philosopher Queens!

A very happy new year to all of our supporters! We’re so excited to be in 2020 and moving ever closer to the publication of The Philosopher Queens on the 11th of June. 

It’s now nearly a year and four months since we launched the project, which we know feels like a long time to wait for a book. You haven’t heard from us in a while, but we’ve been busy working on perfecting the cover and the design so that the final version will be complete by the end of January. There are a few things that we’d like to update you all on. 

We are currently in the process of planning our book tour for June 2020. If you have a venue near you or even know a literary festival that you think we might be well-suited to, please drop us an email at We currently have several events lined up for the year which we will be able to tell you more about very soon. 

We have also had our first confirmed translation deal! The Philosopher Queens will be translated into Romanian and published in late 2020. We hope to have more translations on the horizon, so we will make sure to keep you all updated.

Thank you again for supporting this project, here’s to a big year in 2020. 

Rebecca and Lisa
