Drum roll, please! The cover is done for my upcoming book Maya and the Book of Everything, and now I can share it. I’m not going to hold back—I am absolutely thrilled with how the cover looks. Really, if my creaky knees allowed, I’d be jumping for joy. Kudos to James T. Egan of Bookfly Design for doing such a great job and for being so good to work with.
Maya and the Book of Everything, a fantasy for readers twelve to adult, will be published in November 2016, and I will definitely keep you posted.
Here is a brief synopsis of the story:
In Maya and the Book of Everything, a not-so-ordinary girl comes into possession of an extraordinary book. The Book of Everything is sentient and, among other things, can provide facts about the past, present, and future. The book and Maya are being pursued by a group that wants to suppress facts and spread lies for its own gain.
Another group, called the League of Librarians, believes that facts do matter, and its mission is to protect the book. From the league, Maya learns about a place called the Great Library, which is where the Book of Everything came from.
In the course of the story, the Book of Everything takes Maya back in time, where she meets a boy named Andy. The book whisks Maya and Andy to another planet, where they become embroiled in a civil war. Will Maya be able to save the Book of Everything? Do facts really matter? And what, exactly, is the Great Library?
