I have been waiting long years for this month. The making and publishing of Deadly has had its own incredible saga that I may one day tell you in all its gory details, but for now, suffice it to say that after years of suffering, research, writing, waiting, doubt, rewriting, waiting, being orphaned, and being reclaimed, my novel has finally found its way, and will be out in the world very soon. I CAN’T WAIT!
Here is the frontispiece for the novel, a drawing by my main character Prudence, a girl fascinated with Gray's Anatomy:
On Feb. 20th, I will have a blog tour for Deadly starting at Confessions of a Bookaholic. Lots of interviews, guest posts and reviews at a bunch of great blogs.
Here’s the Deadly trailer, made by the artist Jean-Marc Superville Sovak, who also did the drawings (as Prudence) for the book, music by Eric Helmuth:
