welcome to the world, baby blue

City of Islands is out in the world today! This is my third novel, and first for children, and I am so happy to finally be able to share it with you. It's a fantastical adventure of magic, mystery, and sea monsters, and I hope you--and all the younger readers in your life--enjoy it.

You can buy City of Islands anywhere books are sold, including the following outlets:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Indiebound | Powell's

If you're in the San Diego area, I'll be at Mysterious Galaxy on August 4 at 2 p.m. to talk children's books and fantasy. I would love to see you there! 

I will also most likely be making an appearance at the San Diego Festival of Books on August 25, but the details of that event have yet to be determined. I'll be sure to post the time and location as soon as I know.

City of Islands has been a long time in the making, from my first stab at it during NaNoWriMo in 2010, and through many rewrites and revisions over the years that followed. I am proud of the book it is now, and I am so very thankful for everybody who has offered help and support along the way.
