Hello! Here are all the ways you can keep track of what I’m up to or get in touch. My email, a contact form, and other contact info are at the bottom of this page. I love email from readers or other people interested in my books!

My newsletter

The best way to find out what’s out, what’s coming, and what I’m writing is my newsletter. I send it on most Fridays. If you have trouble getting it, drop me a note and I’m glad to see if I can help with any troubleshooting.

I talk about what’s coming out, background on various books (or the people in them), and almost always have a section of what I’ve been writing and the interesting research I’ve stumbled across in the process.

My blog

Regular posts about the world of my writing, announcements for the most recent book, and other background. You can find my blog at


Want to learn a bit more about the nuts and bolts of my writing process? Would you like early access to extras and deeper dives into research? Want to support me doing more writing and historical geekery? My Patreon is a place for all these things. All tiers get the same access.

As of 2024, there are two public posts a month about writing process and research. Patrons get two more posts. These are a new installment in two series of extras. (With links to previous parts at the bottom of the post.) Read more background and plans for my Patreon here.


Want to chat with people who like my books – and me? We have a private Discord. Find out how to get the link and more about the server here. There are lots of fun historical links, Kiya and I going back and forth about current writing (Kiya’s my friend, editor, and first reader.)

Elsewhere on the Internet

(current as of November 2023)

Bluesky: I’m, and right now, that’s the place I’m most reliably commenting.

Mastodon: I’m I’m checking intermittently at the moment.

Facebook: I’m CeliaLakeBooks over there. Announcements only, at the moment, and the place I’m least likely to notice comments. (Though I do check them periodically.)

Ko-Fi: A couple of amazing readers have asked if there was a way they could buy me a coffee or the equivalent as a thank you for a book getting them through a hard spot. If that’s you, here’s my Ko-Fi. (Money from this goes into an extra bit of a book treat or takeout for me – not essential, but much appreciated.)
