Okay, so a picture sometimes really is worth a thousand words. And this picture says SO much!!
However, here is a blurb for THE SEVEN TALES OF TRINKET, in case you were interested.
Left with nothing but a tattered map, a boy who tends pigs, and the storyteller's blood that thrums through her veins, eleven year-old Trinket's very survival depends upon her ability to capture a good tale and retell it well. If she is lucky enough to find seven tales, well, wouldn't she be the fortunate lass? Then she would have enough stories to star in one place for a week, trading tales for food, shelter, and maybe coin.
But stories can be wily an many like to keep their secrets.
As Trinket follows in what she believe to be her father's footsteps, she travels from one adventure to the next, and closer to a truth she might not be ready for. From an exotic gypsy camp, the the island of the seal people, to the ruins of a banshee's tower, Trinket gathers her stories and writes her poetry, as a good bard should. But when her journey takes her past the wall between the living and the dead, a dark encounter with a mysterious ghost threatens to destroy the one story Trinket is most anxious to discover: What really happened to her father?
(This is not the official blurb--this is just part of my query to Jo, but I think it captures the tale very nicely.)
September 4 is the big release day (I think).
The cover art is by Dan Craig (not Dan Craig the actor...though that would be cool, too, just not as cool as the stuff on this link.)
I just love it and I hope you do, too! (I am putting something in parentheses here just because I did on the earlier lines and I didn't want this one to feel left out.)
