cover and excerpt time
Announcing the cover and exclusive first chapter of my debut novel!
I’m excited to announce the cover reveal and exclusive first chapter for What’s Coming to Me, hosted by We Need Diverse Books (WNDB), a pioneer organization working to make children’s literature and publishing as diverse as our actual world.
In 2016, I was fortunate enough to receive a WNDB Walter Dean Myers Grant, a massive honor. Grieving and in flux, it nudged me to continue writing at a time when I frankly wasn’t sure if I could. To have them here for this milestone in my debut novel journey is more than fitting. Who doesn’t love a full-circle moment?
And this cover by the ferociously talented Naranjalidad! Speaks for itself.
Here’s an excerpt of the excerpt:
Anthony’s going to kill us.
Yes, that’s all you get. Now go read the rest. And while you’re there & if you’re able, consider donating to We Need Diverse Books!
(Soho Teen/Soho Press) 17-year-old Minerva Gutiérrez plans revenge on her predatory boss, while navigating grief, anger, and the possibility of escape from her dead-end town.
