The cover for my new novel, Unbroken Beings, was revealed on Monday! I know, I’m a little late. But I’m proud to share it with the blog world now :). Check it out!
Unbroken Beings is the sequel to Fragile Creatures, but can be read as a standalone. It is set to release mid to late-2015. Fragile Creatures was special to me because it allowed me to put two of my favorite animals, Ruke and PJ, into a book and share them with the world.
Unbroken Beings is just as special, for a different reason. This book touches on the topic of poaching, and the importance of preserving our natural world. The characters face great loss, but also great hope as they learn what it truly means to be one with the land. And I hope the second part of Evie’s story touches your hearts as much as it did mine.
