Shimmerspell Book Cover and Description

The cover was made by Claudia McKinney of :-)

For the product description, I pretty much just tweaked my old query letter. It had already made the rounds through query letter hell and managed to get the attention of a literary intern, so I thought it would be good to use. Please tell me what you think. Should I change it?

Sixteen-year-old Jensen Meadows has never been one to choke on a tall tale. With a con-artist for a big sister, Jensen knows the value of a well executed lie. But when she overhears a murder confession at school and is abandoned by her sister, Jensen learns a few new things:

Drinking Red Bull isn't the only way to get wings. The Seelie Court still hasn't gotten over King Arthur's death. Shimmerspell, the power to move between the mortal and faerie realms, is missing. And somehow, her beloved sister is tied to it all.

With the help of a few teenage light-elves, Jensen wades through a sea of lies and begins to suspect that her whole life has been the tallest tale of them all.

Kindle Book Available Now :-)


  1. This is visually stunning. I would certainly pick this book up and pay for it (unfortunately I am still waiting for my darling husband to buy me a kindle... when he does, I will be back to purchase it!). Regarding your product description (or blurb as it is often known), it's great. My only issue is that you have Jensen too many times in the first paragraph. I would be inclined to change the 2nd one to 'she' instead. Just a thought!!
    Best wishes

  2. Yeah, I think I agree with you Suzy. Thanks for pointing it out. I'll change it as soon as Amazon let's me. :)

    Oh and you can always download the free kindle for pc. :)
