Got Green Blogfest and Sky Jumpers Cover Reveal

Hosted by Mark Koopmans!
My St. Patty's celebration is average. I spend time with family and enjoy a delicious feast. I usually have corned beef and cabbage for dinner. I'm seeing The Call and spending time with family on Sunday.
Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! We'll rejoice and gobble up our corned beef and cabbage today at this fest. Thank you Mark for hosting the party!

Twelve-year-old Hope lives in White Rock, a town struggling to recover from the green bombs of World War III. The bombs destroyed almost everything that came before, so the skill that matters most in White Rock—sometimes it feels like the only thing that matters—is the ability to invent so that the world can regain some of what it’s lost.

But Hope is terrible at inventing and would much rather sneak off to cliff dive into the Bomb's Breath— the deadly band of air that covers the crater the town lives in— than fail at yet another invention.

When bandits discover that White Rock has invented priceless antibiotics, they invade. The town must choose whether to hand over the medicine and die from disease in the coming months or to die fighting the bandits now. Hope and her friends, Aaren and Brock, might be the only ones who can escape through the Bomb’s Breath and make the dangerous trek over the snow-covered mountain to get help. Inventing won't help them, but the daring and risk-taking that usually gets Hope into trouble might just save them all.
Sky Jumpers will be released on September 24, 2013 by Random House Children's Books.
Congratulations Peggy! Can't wait to read Sky Jumpers!

  9. Yay for Peggy! Her story sounds wonderful. And now I want some corned beef. ;)

  10. What an inventive premise! Something a 12 year old would find fascinating too.

  11. I don't do much either; hang out like any other day


  12. Ha! I didn't even realize it was almost St. Patrick's day until just now! I think I may be a little *too* deep in revisions at the moment. Good thing they're due in three hours so I can get back to normal! Then maybe I'll do something cool.

    Thanks so much for spotlighting my book and my new cover! So sweet of you!!

  13. Sounds like a very nice St. Patrick's Day to me!

    I do like this cover.
