In my Book Spotlight piece I will be bringing you an upcoming release and/or cover reveal. These books are ones I am excited about whether they are from a new or an established author. This week I have a book that has me truly excited, The Raven’s Tale by Cat Winters.
Expected publication: April 16, 2019
Publisher: Amulet Books
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!”
Winters was born and raised in Southern California, just a short drive down the freeway from Disneyland, which may explain her love of haunted mansions, bygone eras, and fantasylands. She currently lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and two kids. Visit her online at www.catwinters.com.
Guys, I am really excited for this book. I have an obsession with Edgar Allan Poe. My most prized physical possession is a collection of Poe’s works published in 1912. It is beautiful. My dog is named Poe. I have plans to visit Poe’s grave in Baltimore. I. Love. Poe. When I spotted this book posted on Metal Phantasm Reads I got little hearts for eyes. I absolutely cannot wait to read this book!
