Gossamer Summer: cover art! (and a publishing date!)

I have final cover art for my new novel, and a publishing date: May 30th, 2023! YAY!!!!

The art is by Ji-Hyuk Kim and–like all his art–is magical. I especially love the attention he pays to the worlds he is illustrating, full of detail and life. And of course, the glowing light that is a hallmark of his style. It is so perfect.

And yes, the cat! That terrible, wonderful cat!

(Yes, he is modeled on my terrible, wonderful cat.)

Can you tell it’s a portal fantasy? Ah, I love the cover so much!

It’s the second day of summer, and Jojo and her three sisters–and their new friend Theo–discover a grungy, muddy fairy, who tells them that fairyland is in trouble. And it’s pretty much Jojo’s fault. So what can they do but set off to try to save it? Gossamer Summer is ideal for ages 8 and up.

And there is a publication date!–which means that you can now pre-order the book at any of your favorite book-ordering websites or locations. Here are two of my favorites: my local indie, Red Balloon Bookshop; and, for online orders, Bookshop.org
