I am so, so, SO VERY excited to be part of Julie Musil's cover reveal for THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE! Julie is my agent sister and easily one of the kindest people I've ever met. If you don't follow her blog, it's a must. She is always helping other authors by sharing writing tips and is a huge support to this community. I can't wait for this book to come out! Who doesn't love a little YA contemporary with a splash of ghosts???
Here's the cover:
Manny O’Donnell revels in his status at the top of his high school food chain. He and his friends party in the mountains on a blustery night, sharing liquor and lame ghost stories around a campfire. The next morning, as a wild fire rages in those same mountains, Manny experiences doubt. He was the last of the drunken crew to leave the cave, and he’s uncertain if he extinguished the flames. Within hours, he becomes the number one arson suspect.
Santa Ana winds + matches = disaster. You’d think he would've learned that the first time he started a fire.
As he evades a determined arson investigator, Manny, a modern-day Scrooge, is visited by ghosts of the past, present, and future. He’s forced to witness the fate of his inadvertent victims, including Abigail, the scarred beauty who softens his heart. Manny must choose between turning around his callous, self-centered attitude, or protecting his own skin at the expense of anyone who gets in his way.
Isn't the cover lovely? Totally not cliche and definitely gripping. Can't wait to get my hands on this, Julie!!!!!
Any other news? I've been working on my next project and loving the October air. I need an update from you---anyone doing NaNo? (I respect it, but prefer to write at my own pace) Who else writes better in the fall? Hope you guys are well. :)
Red. Head. Out.
