New Releases: The Lies We Weave

“Planted ambitions. Wounds that never heal. Cycles of generational trauma that keep us from breaking free of our turmoils. Suffused with Gothic undertones, THE LIES WE WEAVE collection of dark poetry and prose is a journey of self discovery that offers a unique perspective of one woman’s path toward healing. Beauty, darkness, pain, and hope can be found along the way so long as we allow ourselves to take those first steps into the unknown.”

Available now wherever books are sold.

Advance Praise for The Lies We Weave

“Grace Reynolds once again uses her keyboard as a spinneret to weave a collection of dark poetry like no other. Themes of girlhood, womanhood and motherhood collide, exploring all the ways that the female form is consumed in life as well as in death. Fans of dark prose will enjoy this beautifully written, highly personal poetry collection that poses the question of why we choose to believe the lies we tell ourselves about ourselves, and empowers us to break the cycle.”

Wendy Dalrymple, author of White Ibis

“As delightful as it is devastating, The Lies We Weave showcases Grace R. Reynolds’ skill with dark poetry and prose in examining motherhood as an excision, contagion, and revelation while exploring the gorgeous and gory nature of femininity.”

Jessica McHugh, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of A Complex Accident of Life

“The Lies We Weave is an unflinching look into the darkness and the stories you tell yourself to survive it. This book is a dark song, a paean to mental health, motherhood, and the beautiful grotesque. Grace R. Reynolds is one of the best horror poets working in the genre today.”

Jessica Drake-Thomas, author of Burials and Bad Omens

“The Lies We Weave is breathtakingly beautiful and hauntingly visceral. You cannot read this collection without feeling it move beneath the surface of your skin. Reynolds has constructed an intricate, intimate exploration of womanhood and the self that is earthy, cosmic and utterly transfixing.” 

Emily Verona, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author
