I’m doing something different for the next week – you will be subjected to a whole week of shameless commercial promotion for my wife’s new book, The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy” which hits the shelves on Tuesday.
The book blurb says:
“Lorelei is bowled over by Splendid Academy–Principal Trapp encourages the students to run in the hallways, the classrooms are stocked with candy dishes, and the cafeteria serves lavish meals featuring all Lorelei’s favorite foods. But the more time she spends at school, the more suspicious she becomes. Why are her classmates growing so chubby? And why do the teachers seem so sinister?
It’s up to Lorelei and her new friend Andrew to figure out what secret this supposedly splendid school is hiding. What they discover chills their bones–and might even pick them clean!
Mix one part magic, one part mystery, and just a dash of Grimm, and you’ve got the recipe for a cozy-creepy read that kids will gobble up like candy.”
This week’s pictures are some of my favourites from the many hundred portraits of kids we shot while putting together the book trailer. The video will be released to the public this coming Saturday at the book launch party at Book People in Austin so, if you are around, drop by at 4pm and join in the fun.
