the SERIOUSLY series

Seriously Wicked prequel story
Prequel story now on!

AKA my story with the longest title ever, "That Seriously Obnoxious Time I Was Stuck at Witch Rimelda's One Hundredth Birthday Party." This story grew out of a two-sentence anecdote in Seriously Wicked, about a disastrous pool party involving inflatable kraken. It got cut for time, but I thought it would be fun expanded into a full-length short story.

(PS: Just to be clear, it's a short story, not a book, but I put it here to show where it fits into the series. :)

SERIOUSLY WICKED  - Tor Teen, May 2015

The only thing worse than being a witch is living with one.

"In Connolly’s witty, effervescent novel, mother-daughter angst and high school drama is spiced with a 21st-century flavor. ... Readers, especially those who are fans of fantasy and YA romance will adore this clever genre mash-up." --School Library Journal

Norton nominee for Best SF YA Novel, 2015

Seriously Shifted
SERIOUSLY SHIFTED - Tor Teen, Nov 2016

Invisibility spells. Exploding cars. Love potions. Oh, and a trio of wicked witches who want to destroy Cam's friends. Can’t a good witch ever catch a break?

"Connolly's first-rate plotting delivers a clever story that empathizes with the self-conscious teen world even as it pokes a tiny bit of well-meaning fun. Accomplished plotting teams up with a winsome narrator to give readers a bewitching story." --Kirkus

Seriously Hexed
SERIOUSLY HEXED - Tor Teen, Nov 2017

Being a teen witch is bad enough. Joining a wicked witch coven is right out.

"Ultimately, this is a great series for your middle school or early high school readers because it’s about doing what’s right, even when it’s hard (and who knows, you may even change the world in the process), and how friendships mean being a good friend first. Highly recommended." --Elitist Book Reviews


On the Eyeball Floor

Contains stories of transcending cyborgs, shapeshifting bears, sentient hands, rogue GPSs, superhero moms groups, zombie chipmunks, and a story told from the point of view of a paddle in Pong. (As you do.)

"...darkly funny, imaginative collection..." -- Joel Cunningham, Barnes & Noble SF Blog

World Fantasy nominee for Best SFF Collection, 2017

IRONSKIN trilogy

IRONSKIN - Tor, Fall 2012

Jane Eliot wears an iron mask. It's the only way to contain the fey curse that scars her cheek. The Great War is five years gone, but its scattered victims remain -- the ironskin.

"This lyrical and utterly marvelous debut is one of the standout books of the year." -- RT Book Reviews, 4 & 1/2 Stars, Top Pick

Nebula nominee for Best SF Novel, 2012

COPPERHEAD - Tor, Fall 2013

Helen Huntingdon is beautiful -- so beautiful she has to wear an iron mask.

Copperhead is a standalone sequel set six months after the end of Ironskin. It features Jane's sister, Helen.

" outstanding exploration of the interplay between beauty, power, and female freedom." -- RT Book Reviews, 4 & 1/2 Stars     

SILVERBLIND - Tor, Fall 2014 

They wouldn't hire Dorie to hunt basilisks. But would they hire Dorian?

The final book jumps forward 18 years and features Dorie, Jane's young charge from Ironskin.

"Dorie, a spoiled and troubled child in Ironskin, has grown into an appealing heroine who takes risks to help the disadvantaged, even at great danger to herself." -- Library Journal
