Giveaway – If We Were Villains

Enter the players. There were seven of us then, seven bright young things with wide precious futures ahead of us. Until that year, we saw no further than the books in front of our faces.

We, here at The Attic on Eighth, love a good novel that delves into the literary canon, plays with what we know, and then produces something of great value that’s all its own. M.L. Rio’s debut novel, If We Were Villains is just that. Dipping in and out of the present, IWWV tells the story of seven young Shakespearean actors who are faced with violence. The novel plays with the prose, borrows from theater, and creates a compelling story of drama, crime, lust, and friendship.

Last summer, we ran a series on the novel (where, among other things, Raquel came up with a fantastic cocktail recipe inspired by the novel) and M. L. Rio later wrote a piece on campus novels for The Attic.

This year, we're teaming up with M. L. Rio again to celebrate friendship and Shakespeare with a giveaway of the recently released paperback edition of If We Were Villains. For each of the novel's main characters, or villains, as we have endearingly come to know them, we'll be giving away seven copies. Here's how you can enter to win one of your own:
