As an author, signing a book deal is probably one of the best days of your career, but the cover reveal of your forthcoming novel is a close second.
Here, on Project GirlSpire, rarely do I get the opportunity to talk about myself and my projects, so I am honored to have the opportunity to reveal the cover of my forthcoming YA Fantasy novel, Djinn with you all.
Fans of Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor, and Twilight by Stephenie Meyer will love this YA fantasy romance. Most importantly, Djinn is diverse, rooted deep in unique folklore from West Africa (Liberia) and beyond.
Bijou Fitzroy is strange. With the unwanted gift of being an empath, she has spent her entire life as a sheltered recluse, homeschooled by her secretive and overprotective grandmother, who never allows them to stay in one place long enough for Bijou to settle and make friends. When Bijou and her grandmother move to Sykesville and she starts to attend the local high school, Bijou’s world begins to crumble. Town locals begin to disappear and the creatures from her nightmares begin to take shape in her reality. She finds herself at the center of a war she never knew was being fought all around her.
Djinn will be released on March 20th of 2018. My novel is the fourth of nine books by women that my publisher, Not a Pipe Publishing will be publishing during 2018 as part of our commitment to accept Kamila Shamsie’s challenge to make 2018 The Year of Publishing Women and only publish women for a year.
The novel will be available for pre-order in late February. Be the first to get a copy!
