I got something amazing in my inbox this week! It’s the cover for THIS APPEARING HOUSE, my second middle grade novel which is due out August 16, 2022!
It’s the story of Jac and her best friend Hazel and how when a strange house appears on the end of their street it coincides with Jac’s fears that her cancer might no longer be in remission. When the House (house with a capital H always) calls to her, and she and her friend enter on a dare, they find they cannot leave until they figure out what the House wants and why it called to Jac specifically. Filled with some definite chills, this is truly a story about the elasticity of trauma and how we learn to keep going.
Pitched as a Monster Calls-esque story navigating trauma and illness I’m super excited to share this one with readers. Once again, I won the Cover Art Jackpot and got to work with Maike Plenzke, my illustrator, and David DeWitt, my designer!
Let me know what you think!
