One of my favorite things about writing and publishing books is that it creates moments of pure joy. Like this one.
I am truly overjoyed to be finally sharing with you the cover for my debut middle grade novel, Felix & Squeak and the Ghost Who Forgot Everything. Isn’t it gorgeous? I’ll be sharing the cover on social media tomorrow, but you, my loyal friends, get the first look.
This book, and these characters, are so near and dear to me, and, if pressed, I might be forced to admit this is my favorite thing I’ve ever written.
What makes this cover reveal extra special is that it allows me to spotlight my amazing collaborator on this project, my older brother Jacob Roesch. Jacob not only created this beautiful cover, he also drew all the interior illustrations, which I’ll share samples of soon.
Working on this project with him is a lifelong dream fulfilled, and I can’t wait for the world to experience his amazing art.
So much more to come, including pre-order details. But in the meantime, here’s what the book is about:
When eleven-year-old Felix’s family inherits an old mansion and moves without warning, it doesn’t take long to figure out there’s a ghost living in the basement. But Papa Joe is no typical ghost. He’s—well—nice. He’s also been stuck in the basement since the 1800s, housebound by the rules of the Ghost Protocol Book. He’s desperate to escape and it looks like the new kid in town is his only hope.
But Felix doesn’t stand a chance of helping Papa Joe without the help of his new friend Squeak, and an Irish Wolfhound named Honest Abe. Together, this accidental ghost squad will brave dark woods, dusty basements, and snooping parents to get to the bottom of this ghostly mystery.
