Title: Sold my YA novel, Whispering Tower!
Post by: KatieC on May 04, 2017, 04:46 PM
I am super excited to share that I've signed a contract with Pelican Book Group for my YA supernatural novel, Whispering Tower! This is book two in my Beguiled series, and I really <3 this book :). Here is a blurb...

"Stuck in London for one of her mom’s work trips, Skye Humphries can’t help holding a grudge when she ends up roped into a summer tour group with Philip-who-crushed-her-heart. When Skye and Philip find themselves barreling through time after unsuspectingly opening the veil between the past and present, they’re thrust into a world where Skye’s very life is in danger. If she’d known her choices were between summering with Philip or being sacrificed to the god of the skies, Skye might have changed her attitude. Now she has to figure out what’s most important to her—getting even for the past or living long enough to enjoy her future.
