Yesterday was the cover reveal for an upcoming anthology I’m a part of, Plot Twists. So that means I get to show it to you! But first, a little about the book:
Down forgotten alleyways and quiet streets, mysterious bookstores only reveal themselves to people who need the special volumes on their shelves. People who are lonely, people who are lost, or people who want an unforgettable experience, find themselves inexplicably drawn to particular works. The keepers of the books, just as strange as the stores themselves, will ask:
“Where would you venture inside the Phantom’s Opera?”
“Have you dreamed of sitting at Arthur’s Round Table?”
“Would you dare to meet Frankenstein?”
Follow nine authors as they weave tales of characters finding exactly what they need, expected or not, inside the pages of a book. With stories across the ages explored: from the heroes of the Iliad, to the madness of Alice’s Wonderland, to the horror of H.P. Lovecraft, adventure awaits.
So get your favorite French wine, or heart-shaped tart, and dive into a good book.
I love that concept, about readers entering into books. I loved it so much, I wrote two short stories using it! As you might guess, the Phantom of the Opera reference is to one of my stories, and I also sent a character into J. M. Barrie’s Peter Pan. I think you’ll enjoy where I took this idea, and where everyone else did too – it’s a really unique blend of ideas and stories. The book will be out October 15th, so mark your calendars!
And now…the cover art!
