… look what just arrived!
ABSOLUTELY TRULY arcs!
(By the way, “arc” stands for “advance reviewer copy,” which is an uncorrected proof of the book.)
Totally GORGEOUS, right? Charles Santoso did the cover illustration, which still makes me swoon every time I see it, and Krista Vossen at Simon & Schuster did the fabulous cover design. I get to work with the BEST people — geniuses, both of them!
Coming to a bookstore near you on November 4th! I’ll be posting a sneak peek later this spring (and yes, there’ll be a giveaway, too), but for now, I can’t resist sharing the prologue:
“A week before the January thaw finally arrived in February, I found myself hanging like a bat from a rafter inside a church steeple, face-to-face with a bell made by Paul Revere.
If you’d have told me a month ago that I’d find myself in this position, I would have said you were crazy.
But then, a month ago my life was completely different. A month ago, my career as a middle school private eye hadn’t begun.
And by the way, it didn’t begin inside a steeple. Absolutely truly not. It began the day my report card made it home before I did.”
