This pub date has really snuck up on me! July 7. Yeesh!
There is so much to do--so much I want to tell you about it before it's here and it will have to do the talking for itself.
First of all, here is the cover:
Art by Gilbert Ford, Yay!
Two lovely writers whom I thoroughly respect had nice things to say about it. Here is the first:
"Shelley Moore Thomas has a wondrous way of weaving magic and myth, loss and longing, wonder and hope into stories that sing. Cordie’s seaside fairytale cast a spell on my imagination. If I lift up the pages and listen closely, I’m certain I can hear the ocean."
Natalie Lloyd, author of A SNICKER OF MAGIC
That's right--the same Natalie who wrote this masterpiece:
And she has this one coming out, soon!
Yes, the amazing Gilbert Ford does Natalie's covers, too! Wouldn't this look so nice sitting on a shelf next to SECRETS OF SELKIE BAY? But you will have to wait for THE KEY TO EXTRAORDINARY because it doesn't come out until March, 2016.
More blurby blurbs tomorrow!
