New York Times bestselling author of The Lunar Chronicles Melissa Meyer has a new home at Text for her fantastical retelling of Rumpelstiltskin.
Gilded is the first instalment in a new duology from Meyer as she returns to what she does best with a stylish, sweeping romance that turns the Rumpelstiltskin fairytale on its head. Publishing on 2 November this year, it’s a perfect way to add a little magic to the Christmas stockings of fantasy readers.
Publication will be supported by a major consumer marketing campaign. Contact Stef Italia to request an early reading copy.
