Cover Alert: Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun

Mermaids AND an Alaskan setting? Oh man! How could anything be better? Seriously.

If you've ever been the land of midnight sun, then you know how magical it is. The mirror like stillness of the azure colored water reflecting the towering glaciers from above is breathtaking. Now Liz Kessler is making Alaska the setting of the 6th book in her middle grades Emily Windsnap mermaid series.

The book will release in the UK in September 2012, but won't make its way to the US until Spring 2013.



Emily Windsnap and the Land of the Midnight Sun (Emily Windsnap #5)


Emily and Aaron are sent on a top secret mission by King Neptune. The king has been having nightmares he doesn't understand and he knows only that Emily and Aaron must go to the Land of the Midnight Sun to avoid catastrophe. But when the friends arrive in this icy world of mountains and glaciers, they uncover a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined. With the help of her best friends and a brave heart can Emily survive and fulfil her mission?
 
 


 
I also think it's interesting that this is the only book in the series (so far) that does not feature a mermaid on the cover. Maybe there will be a different cover for the US book that will feature the tell-tale whimsical mermaid that I love (I sure hope so at least).

  1. WTF is what I was thinking the second I saw this cover! No mermaid tale, very different style than what I am used to. I am so curious to see if there will be a new cover for the US. Either way, it's lovely!

  2. I know! This book doesn't look anything like the others in the series. I actually had to do a double take. I think I would really like to see a mermaid in Alaska. Maybe with a polar bear or something? Ok, I'm obsessed, but really... there needs to be a tail on this cover!

  4. Heather,

    I cannot believe you haven't seen this series! It's been around for ages! But then again, I probably wouldn't know about it either had I not bought some of the books for my classroom. Having two boys keeps me out of the girly book club.

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather. 

Book Blitz: Visions by Lisa Amowitz

Vision by Lisa Amowitz Release Date: 09/09/14 Spencer Hill Press
Summary from Goodreads: The light is darker than you think…

High school student Bobby Pendell already has his hands full—he works almost every night to support his disabled-vet father and gifted little brother. Then he meets the beautiful new girl in town, who just happens to be his boss’s daughter. Bobby has rules about that kind of thing. Nothing matters more than keeping his job.

When Bobby starts to get blinding migraines that come with scary, violent hallucinations, his livelihood is on the line. Soon, he must face the stunning possibility that the visions of murder are actually real. With his world going dark, Bobby is set on the trail of the serial killer terrorizing his small town. With everyone else convinced he’s the prime suspect, Bobby realizes that he, or the girl he loves, might be killer's next victim.

Armchair BEA 2012 Introductions (day 1)

First, let me start off by saying that I am very excited to be participating in Armchair BEA this year. Since this is the first day of the weeklong event, here are my answers to the interview questions:

Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging?
Well, the answer the first part of that question, I am a middle school Language Arts teacher in Florida (and probably one of the only people in a coastal city that hates the beach). I’ve been married to my hubby for 10 years and have 2 boys. My house is a constant zoo and I’m turning 30 in a few months. There is a mid-life crisis in my near future, I’m sure, but I wouldn’t trade any of it for the world.
I started blogging in December of 2011 out of necessity. Seriously. My students know how easily I am distracted when they ask me about books (I eventually caught on to their tactics), so I started blogging out of a need for more teaching time. (I should go ahead and mention that I never talked books all day—even…
