This past week we gave the spotlight to Heartbreak Incorporated, Alex de Campi’s Supernatural Thriller novel, in celebration of its release by Rebellion Publishing! Our Roadies brought a wide selection of content to this show with reviews and other posts. Now it’s time to bring the show to an end and it’s my pleasure to present you with the encore, including some extra content. Come and learn a bit more about the world of Heartbreak Incorporated through Alex’s playlist!
Alex de Campi’s mostly-indie career stretches from her Eisner-nominated debut Smoke (Dark Horse) through recent Eisner nominees Bad Girls (Gallery 13) and Twisted Romance (Image). Plus company work: she’s killed off most of Riverdale, twice, in Archie vs Predator I & II. Her next projects are YA adventure The Backups (Imprint / MacMillan, 2020) and a thriller with director Duncan Jones. Catch her YA adventure Reversal on her Patreon, and action-thriller Bad Karma on Panel Syndicate. She also writes for TV and film (the Blade Runner anime & more). She is on social media as @alexdecampi. She lives in Manhattan.
From acclaimed comics writer Alex de Campi, a sexy (prose) novel about an agency that specialises in breaking up relationships, with a side hustle in the occult.
Evie Cross had big dreams of becoming an investigative journalist but at 25 and struggling to make it in New York City, she’s finally starting to admit that her dream is her side hustle and her day job is actually… her job. That is, until she signs on as a temp for a small consultancy whose principal, Misha Meserov, specializes in breaking up relationships. Misha is tall, infuriatingly handsome, and effortlessly charismatic—he can make almost anyone, man or woman, fall into bed with him. And he often does. But the more Evie is exposed to Misha’s scandalous world, the more she becomes convinced that he’s hiding something… when a wealthy San Francisco tech CEO with a dissolving marriage starts delving into the occult and turns up dead, Evie has to decide between her journalistic desire for the truth and her growing desire for Misha.

“This is a great cross genre book that I found original (not too much swooning), funny and intriguing. I’d love for this to be a series of cases for Heartbreak Incorporated!”

“The characters are all stellar and really hold your focus while the plot goes a little awry. I wish there was more to the business side, I love the concept but I know the supernatural element needs a way in to the storyline too. With plot twists abound, I can definitely say Alex had me wrapped round her little finger.”

“It’s definitely not a light read and might not be suitable for everyone but it’s brilliant. Overall, an amazing read. I haven’t read anything like this. I really liked it”
“The villains are suitably evil, the writing sharp, and the plot moves along at a good clip. But mostly I just had fun with it all.”
“I really enjoyed the plot to this book. It sped up a little too fast in places, but overall it was an entertaining read. I’m hoping Alex gets the go ahead to write a sequel, because this book sets up the Heartbreak Incorporated team to all get potential stories.”
