Please enter and tell me what you think of my new cover for WHEN THE BUTTERFLIES CAME!!! I love it so much. Erin McGuire, the artist, is fabulous.


*COVER REVEAL** TIME!!! And a TON of Easy Giveaways!

My hands are actually shaking a little as I begin this blog post and my heart is fluttering like a swarm of butterflies . . . I've got the go ahead from my wonderful publisher, Scholastic, to do a cover reveal today for my Spring, 2013 book, WHEN THE BUTTERFLIES CAME. 
So what DO you call a group of butterflies? 
*raises hand*
Answer: A Flutter. Or a Rabble. Or a Kaleidoscope. 
Neat, huh?
Now Imagine a Dramatic Hollywood Drum Roll right about now . . .  TA DA!!! 
Isn't it simply STUNNING?!? I love the bright pastel colors! 
I love the Flutter/Rabble/Swarm/Kaleidoscope of all those butterflies just as they're described in my story. I'm so thrilled with this cover!  
Erin Maguire, artist extraordinaire has done it again! She is da bomb! 
                                            The first butterfly comes the day after the funeral. . . .

Synopsis Cover Copy:
Everybody thinks Tara Doucet has the perfect life. But in reality, Tara’s life is anything but perfect: Her dear Grammy Claire has just passed away, her mother is depressed and distant, and she and her sister Riley can’t seem to agree on anything. But when mysterious and dazzling butterflies begin to follow her around after Grammy Claire’s funeral, Tara just knows in her heart that her grandmother has left her one final mystery to solve.
A strange butler shows up to take Tara and Riley to Grammy Claire’s house, where Tara finds a stack of keys and detailed letters from Grammy Claire herself. Note by note, Tara learns unexpected truths about her grandmother’s life. As the letters grow more ominous and the keys more difficult to decipher, Tara realizes that the secrets she must uncover could lead to mortal danger. And when Tara and Riley are swept away to the beautiful island of Chuuk to hear their grandmother’s will, Tara discovers the most shocking truth of all — one that will change her life forever.
From Kimberley Griffiths Little comes a magical, breathtaking mystery full of loss and love, family and faith.

I know! Covers just get better and better every year. It's amazing what these designers and artists put together. I have no art background at all and some covers just blow me away with their uniqueness and style and pure gorgeousness. ;-)

Thank you so much! I love hearing the *love*. :-)

(I just read your bio again and whew! You are one busy woman - teaching, mothering and grad school! You're also very hilarious. I love this: (like seriously, I am barely out of my 30's. I feel 28, really)

That's me, too!!!
