I have a secret that I’ve been keeping from you guys. It’s not a deep, dark secret, but a light, heartfelt one that I have been bursting to tell you. It’s an amazing, happy secret that I-
Okay, yeah, let’s cut to the chase. I could go on and on about how amazing this secret is but, yeah, I’ll bore you if I don’t get to the point (I’ll bore myself, too).
Soo……I guess I’m publishing my novella.
OKAY NOW THAT IT’S OUT I FEEL LIKE SCREAMING LIKE WAHT EVEN. *dies*
Okay, calm down, Anika, CALM DOWN. *deep breath*
I am going to be publishing my novella, Penny’s New Beginning, on March 23rd, 2017! ONLY TWO MONTHS AWAY WAHT.
Most of you guys don’t even know that Penny’s New Beginning even exists. Only my beta-readers and my editor. That’s all. Well, I may have told my pen pals, and chat buddies, and Grace, but I made them promise to keep it a secret so that I could tell most of you today.
The official release date for Penny’s New Beginning is March 23rd. I will be having a blog tour that will run from March 21st through March 23rd – more details on that at the end of this post.
Now, I thought that you guys might like to see the cover and know about a bit about the book! It is a roughly 7,000 word novella written for girls ages 5-11. I have it set as more like an American Girl book, you know? Well, I guess I’ll give you the cover and blurb now:
Nine-year-old Penny Hearting has just moved to Nassau with her family and is completely convinced that a mermaid rescued her from drowning – but, no one believes her. So, she takes matters into her own hands and goes on a search for the mermaid that rescued her.
Ten-year-old Emmy is the princess of Utopia, an underwater city populated by mermaids. But, when her evil aunt, Cassandra, takes the city from her father, the King, her only option is to seek help from the girl whom she rescued.
When these two lives collide, can they and another friend save their homes from disaster?
EEEEEEEEEEE LOOK AT THE COVER ISN’T IT BEAUTIFUL???!!!!! I even drew it myself!!!! 😀
