STATE OF THE TROUT: Nightmare Born cover reveal and release date, Snark Squad, and another Sims Let’s Play.

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey everyone! I finally, finally got the second draft of The Boyfriend off for another round of edits, so I can blog again! And I have a cover reveal!

But not for The Boyfriend. See, that cover reveal (and a sneak peek) will be headed your way on Friday. Today, though, I’m revealing the cover of Nightmare Born, my Young Adult Urban Fantasy serial that will be debuting on the Radish app on October 23rd, just in time for Halloween!

The cover for Nightmare Born shows the silhouette of two teens facing each other, holding hands in front of a night sky. There's a scary dracula-looking castle on a hill in the background and a full moon in the clouds. The title and two logos for the Google Play and Apple App store show beneath my name.

If you don’t remember or I haven’t talked about it before, Nightmare Born is the magical school trope we’ve seen before in YA, but with a twist: the magical girl is autistic. It was very important to me to write a story where a girl who stims, gets overwhelmed, has some stumbles socially, still gets to be the three-dimensional hero of her own story. There are vampires, ghosts, magic, witchcraft, and the Nightmare Born, creatures who look appear human and will steal your heart…literally. I’m so thrilled to be partnering with Radish on this. Keep an eye out for a promotional giveaway that will include one of a kind, original art by me!

So…you can see why I’ve been pretty busy lately!

I’m also super excited to announce that I’ll be a guest on the Snark Squad podcast this Halloween, talking about (what else) Buffy The Vampire Slayer Halloween episodes! More information will be available on that as we get closer to air date.

Now, before I leave, here’s another Sims Let’s Play, this one featuring translations from Simlish and my new neighbor, Bearded Chris Evans:

  I uploaded the wrong file. I’ll fix it later.

PS. Nominations for the Jealous Haters Book Club 2019 Selection will close on Friday, so get your nominations in now! Also, please submit only one nomination per title. I can see the timestamps and some of you have been tricky. Naughty, naughty.
