It’s hard to believe, but #thedevoted has been out in the world for three grand months. I’ve traveled all over the east coast and beyond and I’ve met wonderful fellow writers and readers everywhere I’ve gone. The contemplative art of diving into a novel is alive and well. If you haven’t read it yet, consider the devoted, or consider it as a gift for the reader in your life. And thanks for your support! .

Launch Day for The Devoted!

THE DEVOTED is officially available for purchase in bookstores or online! It’s been such a busy few weeks that I haven’t updated the site here. So here’s a roundup of some of the most exciting things that have been happening with the book:

On launch day, I signed copies of The Devoted at bookstores in New York, including The Strand, McNally Jackson, and Kinokuniya. And I read at the amazing H.I.P. Lit series.

TIME MAGAZINE reviewed The Devoted, in conversation with R.O. Kwon’s The Incendiaries! Eliana Dockterman writes, “Both novels set themselves apart from others in the genre with a terrifying but insightful warning not to look for easy answers offered by false prophets”: False Prophets Come Under Fire in Two Timely Summer Novels

The Rumpus reviewed The Devoted! Maikie Paje writes, “The Devoted is a personal journey. Who you are informs your reading experience. Hurley leaves you thinking and sorting through feelings long after her final page”: Finding Her Way: The Devoted by Blair Hurley

Thanks to all the teachers, readers, writers, and friends who have brought the book to bookstores, and continue to support its release.
