Cinderskella Cover Reveal!

I was supposed to announce this on Monday..
But I was sleeping most of that day.
Pretty terrible huh?
Cause this was the big cover reveal of the book I illustrated!
The book is now available for presale!
I'm hoping to have some signed copies or something, or some way of doing that.
I'll have to talk to the publishers on how that would work.

Maybe, if you are interested in a signed book,
let me know if the comments and I'll figure out how to do that best.

Anyways.. here is the cover!
And inside that cover is a pretty darn cute story, stuffed full of 27 full illustrations done by me.
And 26 mini illustrations done by me also.
It was a lot of work. 

The Authors, Amie and Bethanie Borst
About the Authors:

Amie and Bethanie Borst are a mother-daughter writing team. Amie believes in Unicorns,
uses glitter whenever the opportunity arises, accessories in pink and eats too much chocolate.
Bethanie is a spunky 13 year old middle-schooler who loves archery, long bike rides and
studying edible plant-life. Cinderskella is their first book together and is part of the Scarily Ever
Laughter series. You can find them on Facebook
Twitter,  Pinterest From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle-Grade Authors , and blog 

About the book:

Cindy is just a normal, average girl. At least until she wakes up one night to find out she is dead. 
Well, she isn't technically dead—she just doesn't have any hair, nose, or . . . skin.
Yep, she is a skeleton—all bones and no body.

Human by day and skeleton by night, Cindy is definitely cursed. It doesn't help that her mother 
recently died, only to be replaced by an evil stepmother who makes her do gross things like eat 
liver and clean rooms with only a toothbrush. It really doesn't help that her father is scared of her strange nightly body appearance and that there's no way she can attend the
 school dance “dressed” like a skeleton. 

What ensues is a hysterical tale of a young girl who, while coping with the loss of her mother, 
embarks on a journey of self-discovery, love, and forgiveness, all the while learning to deal with 
an evil step-mother and her "skeletal" abnormalities.
Cinderskella is available for purchase at Barnes & Noble 

It's a cute story. I read it. Several times as I illustrated it.
