My new young adult fantasy, POLLY AND THE ONE AND ONLY WORLD, is scheduled for release in the fall, but already it’s up on Amazon and Goodreads. And yesterday my fine, new publisher, Green Writers Press, received excellent attention in a feature in Publisher’s Weekly.

Meanwhile, with editorial support, I’ve been revising compulsively, mostly at the level of the sentence. The story gets a little better with every pass.

Our efforts to develop and refine the book jacket art, centering on the contributions of designer Diego Melendez, are in the final stages. Here’s an early sample, one that suggests the direction we’re pondering, font, image, mood, and color.

As summer arrives, we’ll be gearing up our publicity machine, hoping to get out the word–and the excitement–well in advance of our release date, October 6.
