The Wolf’s Curse Cover Reveal!

Hi friends!

I know the new year continues to bring challenges for many of us, so it’s more important than ever to celebrate when we have the chance––yesterday, I did just that!

Celebrating (Covid-Style)

You’re probably wondering what I was celebrating. For years, I’ve been a fan of Mr. Schu’s blog. Those of you not obsessed with children’s literature may not know that he’s the Ambassador of Children’s Literature for Scholastic Books––and a Pretty Big Deal. I’ve always dreamed of having him host a cover reveal for my debut novel, and yesterday my dream came true!

You can read the full interview (including my tour of the cover design) here, but in the meantime, this is the cover: (Isn’t it incredible?)

That’s not all!

I also found out that The Wolf’s Curse has a release date! It will be available in stores on September 21, 2021! But good news — you can preorder now to make sure you get a copy as soon as they are available––and before they sell out.*

*Preorder links*

*Preorders really help out authors, too–they send an important signal to publishers about what kind of interest any given book has, which helps them determine which books to spend their marketing dollars on.

Besides my own celebrations (which included launching Magic in the Middle), I’ve also been busy celebrating book releases for a whole ton of other fantastic debut authors––you can explore their books here and here.

I’ll check back again when I have more news to share. In the meantime, I’d love to know what you like best about The Wolf’s Curse cover! Drop me a note in the comments below!

Magic in the Middle

I’m writing to introduce an exciting new program I’m launching called Magic in the Middle!

I often hear teachers and librarians ask authors for content they can use in their classrooms, and I know we all want to foster a love of reading in our middle grade kids. That’s where Magic in the Middle comes in! It’s a series of free monthly recorded book talks featuring upper middle grade fantasy books to help teachers, librarians, and parents introduce new books to their 10-14 year old readers. If this sounds like your cup of tea, you can sign up here and the talks will land in your inbox on the first Tuesday of each month. Please share this program with anyone you think might be interested–the more readers we reach, the better!

Sending you all my best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!

P.S. Stay tuned for The Wolf’s Curse cover reveal, coming in early 2021!
