Today is a special day for me because not only do I get to reveal my cover but I get to share it with friends…all of you!
This book is special to me, because as you know, I love all things weird and strange. I grew up watching the X-Files and Tales From The Crypt and reading things like Ray Bradbury’s Dark Carnival, Goosebumps, Lois Duncan, and The Bailey School Kids books where weird was the norm. I liked it that way. I still do. And I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to find my horror soul mate… but one day I did…my writing partner Brian.
This cover reveal is also SO special to me because it’s the beginning of another awesome series with my writing partner, Brian LeTendre. He is the worlds most patient man to put up with me but he does and I’m so grateful. He’s supportive, kind, thoughtful, and crazy talented and I’m beyond grateful to get to work with such a classy guy.
Are you ready to see my cover?
Are you sure?
Welcome to Orchard Pointe!
Every town has its secrets. This town is made of them.
It’s been ten years since Hudson James stepped foot in the small beach town of Orchard Pointe. His parents are battling through a nasty divorce and he’s forced to spend the summer in Maine with extended family. But Hudson makes the most of it. He finds kindred spirits in his cousin Marley and her oddball friend Kit, and lands a security job at the amusement park he loved as a kid.
Oceanside Amusement Park was once the centerpiece of the beachfront tourist experience. But with attendance down and the park in need of an update, Orchard Pointe’s tricentennial celebration might be the last chance to turn things around. The town brings in a performance group all the way from their sister city of Monrive, France—Madame Chambers’ Coterie of Curiosities. From sideshow to burlesque acts, Madame Chambers and her eccentric group of performers mesmerize locals and tourists alike from the moment they arrive.
When a girl disappears from the park during Hudson’s very first shift, he feels responsible. When she turns up dead, Hudson can’t forgive himself. He vows to discover the truth about what happened and the more he digs, the more he’s certain that Madame Chambers and her Coterie aren’t what they seem.
Can Hudson stop the wave of darkness that has crashed down on Orchard Pointe, or will the undertow of secrets claim another victim?
I’m so excited for you all to meet Orchard Pointe, a place that’s just as alive as the people that live there. This is just the beginning of the weird, strange, and unusual. AND you get to meet Kit, one of my favorite characters I’ve ever written!
Alsoooo Brian made a super rad book trailer and here it is below!
Thank you so much to everyone who has helped us with the reveal and to everyone who has supported me over the years. I am so grateful for you.
