Fabulous Despite Fascists. Lara Elena Donnelly’s Amberlough to Become Trilogy

In Amberlough, a gay double-agent schemed to protect his smuggler lover during the rise of a fascist government coup. That story was supposed to be over by the end of the book.

Supposed to be.

Tor Books is excited to announce that Lara Elena Donnelly’s alternate universe cabaret thriller Amberlough will now get two sequels, the first of which is set to arrive spring/summer 2018! Readers will get to explore more of Donnelly’s frankly fabulous alternate world, all thanks to some recent editorial developments…

Donnelly explains:

Originally, Amberlough was meant to be a standalone, but during the editorial process I saw a narrow, perilous path further into the story and got very excited about pursuing it. I’m thrilled to be working with editor Diana Pho to bring the next installment of this series to life.

Book two takes readers to Porachis, a matriarchal monarchy with a booming motion picture business and shaky diplomatic ties with Gedda. There are going to be some familiar made-up faces cropping up in unexpected spots, plus a cast of brand new characters as glamorous and conniving as their predecessors.

It’s a Golden Age of Hollywood-does-Bollywood, with a side order of In the Loop.
