Title Reveal and Synopsis!!!

Woo hoo! I can finally reveal the title of the book I've written for Quirk, as well as the synopsis! I've been bursting at the seams for what feels like forever to share this - especially since Will Staehle and I first conceived of this project over 10 years ago!


Without further ado...

The title is...

WARREN THE 13TH and The All-Seeing Eye

Meet Warren the 13th, a cursed 12-year-old Victorian bellhop who’s terribly unlucky . . . yet perpetually optimistic, hard-working, and curious. Orphan Warren’s pride and joy is his family’s hotel, but he’s been miserable ever since his evil Aunt Anaconda took over the management. Anaconda believes a mysterious treasure known as the All-Seeing Eye is hidden somewhere on the grounds, and she’ll do anything to find it. If Warren wants to preserve his family’s legacy, he’ll need to find the treasure first—if the hotel’s many strange and wacky guests don’t beat him to it! This middle-grade adventure features gorgeous two-color illustrations on every page and a lavish two-column Victorian design that will pull young readers into a spooky and delightful mystery.

The final cover is still being designed and illustrated by Will, but it's looking awesome so far and I look forward to sharing that as soon as I can! Oh, and mark your calendars because the book is set to be released on November 24th!

    1. Yes, it's been a long time in the making! The story has undergone a number of changes over the years, but I think what we've come up with is really fun!
