This is how it all went down. . . and cover reveal.

Perhaps you may have noticed that Song of Sorrow (my novella that is a prequel to Rapunzel) was published on Friday.  Here's the cover, because I love it.

Have you ever read a book that seemed to delve right into your childhood self?  Man, Tom Sawyer does that for me.  Especially the pieces where the kids get in trouble and imagine dying for the revenge of their death on their parents.
