Hello all!
It’s been a while since I sent one of these updates. If you’re like me, life has been busy, to say the least. You’re floundering among the flotsam of all your changing plans, perhaps adjusting to a new and bizarre school year for yourself or your children while juggling your work tasks, home life, and general anxiety about the world. I haven’t sent an update because it’s ridiculous, really, to expect you to think about a novel. I’m not even thinking half as much as usual about my own novels.
But then I remember that when I need to calm down and get out of my own head, what do I turn to? Stories. Novels, shows, podcasts, films. Stories help preserve my sanity, and probably yours too. They’re one of the things I’m grateful for, always. And if my stories ever do that for you, then I’m even more grateful.
So the novel in question, my latest, Lava Red Feather Blue: would you like to read it? I have a link for you subscribers to this list: go here and you can get an advance ebook copy, no catch; you just have to create a free sign-in at NetGalley. After reading the book, if you want to post a review on NetGalley and/or Goodreads or other places, that would be extra nice and I would hugely appreciate it, but whether you do so is up to you.


If you aren’t sure about the NetGalley sign-up and just want to read the first five chapters, those are up on my website.
If you’re a traditionalist who’d like a print copy, I don’t have free copies there (sorry!), but preorders do the book a lot of good. Go through Indiebound or Bookshop to do indie bookstores some good too.
One early review I’m especially pleased about, meanwhile, is from Publishers Weekly—and let me tell you, getting a PW link about yourself first thing in the morning is a surefire way to jolt you awake. But I didn’t have to panic ultimately, because they called it “delightful” and “passionate” and said, “With this engrossing urban fantasy, Ringle delivers a queer fairy tale as electrifying as it is tender.” Hurray!
I shall now return to trying to figure out the remote-learning setup for my kids’ schools so that they’ll be ready for tomorrow, the first day of school here in Seattle. May we all find some peaceful moments to read delightful books amid the September madness.
All the best,
