Even though some of you may have had a glimpse of the cover of my new book, this is the official unveiling. Ta-da (cue glorious fanfare with full orchestra)…
A cover is all good and well but us serious readers don’t like to judge a book on cover alone, right? Of course not. So here is more information, nuggets and tantalizing facts about The Dreamer’s Tears.
It’s a fantasy-adventure for 10-14 year olds. It’s being published by the wonderful Indie upstart, Fox & Raven Publishers, and will be available for pre-order on Monday the 20th of April. That’s right, Monday. *nerd-girl-squeal*
You can pre-order digital copies from Amazon, and paperbacks from the Fox & Raven Emporium.
It will be available in independent bookstores nationwide within the next two weeks.
But the specs are not enough are they? You need details! Well then, here’s the story in a nutshell:
Ivy Bauble is about to become Apprentice to the Master of Transformations. Never mind that she’s far too obsessed with Knightmares for her own good, or that she’s not sure if she can trust Master Borinvere and his brooding ward, Declan.
But when the magical Tower fails to transform and protect the peaceful village of Newton, Ivy has her hands full with more than just the annoying Declan and her sketchbook full of Knightmare drawings. Those dark, dangerous beasts are all set to fly into Newton and destroy everything Ivy holds dear.
And of course, Ivy is the only one who can stop all of this.
Swept up into an adventure with hot air balloons, magical wells, tickering cars and dreadful, fire-breathing horses, Ivy Bauble’s life is about to change forever. And all because of Ivy’s unending curiosity.
And seeing as all the mom’s, dad’s, aunts, uncles and librarians are reading this and not the kids (what 10-14 year old reads blogs, right?) be sure to pass this information on to every little human you meet. And once they’ve read the book, I would love to hear from them – so feel free to e-mail me.
Keep writing! (And reading)
