So I made this book called 17 DAYS and signed a deal with a publisher and then that deal went sour and 17 DAYS was homeless.
So I started sending it out again. And then I heard from ELJ Publications. And they were all, can we look at this again? And they did. And they liked it. And now 17 DAYS is no longer homeless.
It is also no longer coverless. Ariana D. Den Bleyker of ELJ fashioned this glorious cover for a book that should be heading our way very, very soon:
Thank you so much to the team at ELJ! I hope y’all enjoy this book when it hits shelves (and the Internet) later this fall.
Meanwhile, I hope to see some of you tomorrow at Malvern books for the launch of PRAY, PRAY, PRAY: Poems I wrote to Prince in the middle of the night.
