Happy New Year, Brian!
I hope that 2023 is a good one for you.
I'm very happy to announce that Latitude 46 is releasing my new YA novel, The Sound of a Rainbow, this spring. The prize winning first draft of this book was written in 72 hours during the Muskoka Novel Marathon in 2020.
The novel follows the journey of failed teen pop singer Raven, whose life has been destroyed by vicious social media trolls. On the advice of a therapist, her divorcing parents send her to Rainbow Wings, an inclusive performing arts camp set on a remote island in Northern Ontario. Even the charms of the quirky staff and beautiful environment don't win Raven over, and she plots to run away. When she meets Ash, a younger teen with autism, she begins to develop empathy. Their impulsive decisions and actions lead them into a dangerous situation. Raven is forced to make choices that impact the future of the camp, and others she cares about.
I've attached the cover, and would be so grateful if you can pass on my information to your readership.
I'm thankful for the many helpful courses I've taken with you! It made a positive difference for me.
