First Blurb for THE RAVEN'S TALE

A finished version of the manuscript for The Raven's Tale is making its way to early readers.

I'm thrilled to share that one of those readers, comics creator Dwight L. MacPherson, has given the novel its first blurb:

“Spellbinding, imaginative, whimsical, and unforgettable. A rattling good tale that is worthy of the master poet himself.”
–Dwight L. MacPherson, author of The Imaginary Voyages of 
Edgar Allan Poe, co-host of The Raven Lunatics

About The Raven's Tale:

Seventeen-year-old Edgar Poe counts down the days until he can escape his foster family—the wealthy Allans of Richmond, Virginia. He hungers for his upcoming life as a student at the prestigious new university, almost as much as he longs to marry his beloved Elmira Royster. However, on the brink of his departure, all his plans go awry when a macabre Muse named Lenore appears to him. Muses are frightful creatures that lead artists down a path of ruin and disgrace, and no respectable person could possibly understand or accept them. But Lenore steps out of the shadows with one request: "Let them see me!"

The Raven's Tale will release from Abrams on April 16, 2019.

I have a couple updates for The Raven's Tale, my upcoming novel about a year in the life of teenage Edgar Allan Poe!

☙ The Raven's Tale is currently slated to release in May 2019.

☙ The cover reveal is tentatively scheduled to go live in mid-August.

I'm still awaiting the next stage of revisions from my editor, so I don't have anything new to report in terms of the content of the book. The official catalog synopsis will likely debut at the same time as the cover . . . but I may have already slipped an early version of the summary on my Raven's Tale page as a bonus for visitors to my website.

Pre-order options aren't yet available; however, you can add the novel to Goodreads.

More soon!
