The Wicked Unseen by Gigi Griffis

Something wicked this way comes…

From the moment Audre arrives in rural Pennsylvania, it’s clear she won’t fit in. After all, her nose ring, horror movie obsession, and family’s Ouija board collection aren’t likely to endear her to a town convinced there’s a secret Satanic cult doing rituals in the nearby woods.

When the preacher’s daughter and Audre’s crush, Elle, goes missing on Halloween weekend, the town is quick to point fingers—in Audre’s direction. With the cops busy harassing her family for being nonbelievers and everyone else convinced demons are to blame, Audre realizes she might be the only person who can find her friend.

But the deeper Audre digs, the weirder it gets. Has Elle fallen victim to a Satanic ritual, or is the town’s obsession with the occult covering up something even more sinister?

“An absorbing mystery with strong characterization.” – Kirkus

We Are the Beasts - cover coming soon

What if monster stories were about saving girls, not killing them?

When a series of brutal, mysterious deaths start plaguing the countryside and whispers of a beast in the mountains reach the quiet French hamlet of Mende, most people believe it’s a curse—God’s punishment for their sins.

But to sixteen-year-old Joséphine and her best friend, Clara, the beast isn’t a curse. It’s an opportunity.

For years, the girls of Mende have been living in a nightmare—fathers who drink, brothers who punch, homes that feel like prisons—and this is a chance to get them out.

Using the creature’s attacks as cover, Joséphine and Clara set out to fake their friends’ deaths and hide them away until it’s safe to run. But escape is harder than they thought. If they can’t brave a harsh winter with little food… If the villagers discover what they’re doing… If the beast finds them first…

Those fake deaths might just become real ones.

“A gay thriller period drama with lowkey eat the rich vibes.” – early reader

And the Trees Stare Back by Gigi Griffis

She got her sister back from the cursed forest, but something’s wrong.

The soldiers call it the suicide forest. The locals call it cursed. Sixteen-year-old Vik calls it her backyard.

So, when Vik’s five-year-old sister wanders in and disappears, no one is surprised. Until five years later, when she walks out of the forest unharmed—and without having aged a day.

Vik is glad to have her sister back, but something’s wrong. Not only is she still five years old, but she won’t—or can’t—tell them what happened. And before she starts talking, she’s fallen into a coma, and it doesn’t look good.

The only way to know what happened–and to save her little sister–is for Vik to venture into the cursed forest herself. She’ll either save her sister or die trying.

The Empress by Gigi Griffis

As seen on Netflix…

The year is 1853, and Princess Elisabeth “Sisi” of Bavaria has been very clear: She will wait for the head-over-heels love the poets speak of, or she will have no love at all. Just because her older sister, Helene, is eagerly heeding their mother’s advice and preparing to marry Emperor Franz of Austria does not mean Sisi must also subject herself to such a dutiful existence. Sisi knows there is more to life than luncheons and corsets—if only someone would let her experience it all firsthand.

Meanwhile, in Austria, the emperor is recovering from an assassination attempt that left him wounded and scared. In a bid to keep the peace, Franz has recommitted himself to his imperial duties—and promised to romance the pliant Helene of Bavaria at his upcoming birthday celebration. How better to unite the empire than with the announcement of a new empress?

But when Sisi and Franz meet unexpectedly in the palace gardens, away from the prying eyes and relentless critique of the court, their connection cannot be denied. And as their illicit conversations turn into something more, they must soon choose between the expectations of their families and standing up for what they truly believe in…
