Caroline Starr Rose has a middle grade novel coming out early 2012, entitled MAY B. She had a remarkable journey in getting her book published. The first publisher who bought her manuscript closed, which, I'm sure, was heartbreaking. But she found another publisher, and we are extremely happy her book will be out in the world very soon. I'll be posting an interview of Caroline in January. In the meantime, you can read more about her here:
She's giving away a copy of the paperback, The Year the Swallows Came Early, in case you missed getting one from me! And if you're wondering about the sketch I posted, it was the first draft of the paperback cover. Even in pencil, I absolutely adore it!
