SHADOW WEAVER

HOLLOW DOLLS Cover Reveal

I’m so excited to share the cover for HOLLOW DOLLS, the first in a new duology set in the same world as SHADOW WEAVER! As I’ve talked to readers over the past couple years, many have asked to know more about Simone, the mind reader. She was one of my favorite supporting characters in SHADOW WEAVER and I can’t wait for you to read her story too.

Thanks so much to Sourcebooks art director Nicole Hower and artist Erwin Madrid for crafting a fabulous cover to kick off this new series. I just love how it captures so many elements from the book – the mystery, the hint of magic, and the library setting. I hope you love it too!

Also, I’m running an ARC giveaway on Twitter today – RT to enter! (Open internationally and ARCs will be mailed when I receive them in June).

So without further ado……

 

 

 

 

 

 

HOLLOW DOLLS

Available January 1, 2020 

How can you keep secrets, when someone’s in your mind?

Simone is a mind reader. She knows a great many things about everyone she meets, but she can’t seem to remember anything about her past or where she came from. After finally being free for the first time in a long time, she sets off, determined to find her home.

When she stumbles across a man with two minds inside him – the real one, shoved deep down, and one of a body walker, someone who can take over a person’s body against their will – Simone is even more eager to leave her old life behind.

As Simone dives deeper into her history, she learns truths she never could have imagined. But when those she loves start disappearing around her, Simone knows only she can stop the evil.

Set in the same fantasy world as the Shadow Weaver duology, this series starter weaves a tale of secrets, power, magic, and the long path to home.

THE SWAG PACK INCLUDES:

New Middle Grade Fantasy Duology in 2018

I am so thrilled to tell you that my next middle grade series was recently acquired by Sourcebooks and the first book, SHADOW WEAVER, will be out in Winter 2018. I am crazy lucky to have such a great team to work with at Sourcebooks and New Leaf Literary. Thanks so much to Annie and Suzie for making this happen! <3

ShadowWeaver-AnnouncementPW

In a very tiny nutshell, SHADOW WEAVER is about a girl who can talk to her shadow…and her shadow talks back. I adore Emmeline, the main character, and I hope you will too.  I can’t wait for you all to meet her and explore this new fantasy land! (and if you’re on Goodreads, you can add SHADOW WEAVER to your TBR list!)
