My Debut Middle Grade Novel Has A Cover!

I remember when my husband and I found out I was pregnant with our first child. Emotions from every Christmas, birthday, and special milestone in my life melded into one, wrapping itself around my heart and squeezed. Tight. At the time, Christmas day was only six days away, so we decided to wait to share the news with family and friends, keeping a 'Christmas Surprise.' The wait had been excruciating. 

So has waiting to share my first book baby's cover with you. 

With no more #blah-blah from me, I'd like to introduce you to Daphne, my middle grade book cover. Why, yes, I named her. It only seemed fitting.

TAH-DAH!
Description: Forget having a lively after school social life, Ebony Charmed is fighting to keep the entire Afterlife alive.

Ebony’s less-than-average spirit tracking abilities are ruining more than sixth grade at Motley Junior High: School for the Psychically & Celestially gifted. Her parents argue so much her dad moved out. And, even though he’s scared of his own shadow and insists on bringing his slimy, legless lizard everywhere they go, Ebony wouldn’t survive without her best friend, Fleishman. 

When Ebony’s Deadly Creatures & Relics’ project goes missing, she learns her missing project is one of the keys to saving the spirit world. Now Ebony and Fleishman must battle beasts from Norse Mythology to retrieve her project before spirits are lost, the Well of Urd dries up, and Ebony loses all hope of reuniting her family. But someone lies in wait, and he has other plans...including creating a new world of spirits without them in it.
