I am extremely excited to be sharing an official, public cover reveal for my upcoming spooky children’s book, Rosie Paints with Ghosts!
When Rosie finds a secret door under her bed, it leads her to a spooky town with two BIG problems – they’ve lost all their color, and Rosie can’t seem to get back home!With the help of a new friend, Rosie has a new goal: repaint and restore the town of Tombstone!But what can she do when the Mayor of Tombstone doesn’t like Rosie’s changes?
This little cover has gone through quite a few iterations and sketch designs – I’m really grateful to my Patrons on Patreon who get first looks at all the Rosie art, and have given me some really helpful feedback on both the art & the content on the back!
Full Cover Wrap:
Rosie is a little girl who is very near and dear to my heart. Her story is a super colorful & fun romp through a ghost town with her new friend, Phil, yes – but something I haven’t opened up about too much until this cover reveal is that Rosie is also representative of things that I struggled with as an Autistic child, and even still as an Autistic adult. Although it’s not necessary to be on the spectrum or know with someone who is to enjoy Rosie’s story, I think some folks who do may be able to recognize some things in this that feels familiar. I think that growing up, having a book like this would have been really good for me – and I’m hoping that other people can enjoy it, too!
Rosie Paints with Ghosts will be available to pre-order from my Etsy this September!
I’ll be offering a pre-order bundle incentive that will include a hardcover copy of Rosie Paints with Ghosts, plus some merch – stickers, bookmarks, and maybe more! I’ll reveal official bundle details in August, as well as exact pre-order & release dates.
I’m extremely nervous about all of this because I’m doing so much of it by myself, but I am so, so grateful for the support from people who are as excited about Rosie as I am! I’ve already started talking to people regarding blurbs & have a couple more lined up to reach out to, and am also hoping to find a few spots to promote the book itself leading up to & around launch – websites, podcasts, etc! If you have any recommendations or a place for me to talk about Rosie, please reach out!
