My lovely publisher, HarperCollins, has posted 10 copies of A MADNESS SO DISCREET for giveaway on Goodreads! Definitely check that out if you’re interested.
Likewise, I discovered a list of reasons for incarceration in an insane asylum from the log books of the West Virginia Hospital for the Insane, spanning the years 1864 to 1889. It’s easy to see that you didn’t necessarily have to be truly insane in order to be whisked away. In a lot of cases, an insane asylum was a convenient location for inconvenient people.
See if you spot yourself in here.
