Things didn’t go as planned and my last post was… 17 days ago but we’re not talking about that.
We are, however, talking about the fact that THE MARVELOUS is getting an audiobook! And I am damn excited about it!
As a very small, not even midlist author (and I say that lovingly with all the self-awareness in the world), things likes audiobooks are unfortunately not a guarantee for me. For example, my second YA novel, IIMYH didn’t get an audiobook when it was released (…more on that later 👀). Accessibility is deeply important to me across the board and two things I always hope for, especially as a kidlit author, are a paperback edition (hardcovers are expensive!) and an audio version.
Which is why I’m so grateful that the lovely team at Tantor bought the rights and hired the immensely talented Joniece Abbott-Pratt to bring THE MARVELOUS to life! It’s available for preorder now and/or you can also request for your local library to purchase a copy.
ABOUT MY BOOK
THE MARVELOUS follows six teens locked together in a mansion, contending for a life-changing cash prize in a competition run by a reclusive heiress.
Everyone thinks they know Jewel Van Hanen. Heiress turned actress turned social media darling who created the massively popular video-sharing app, Golden Rule.
After mysteriously disappearing for a year, Jewel makes her dramatic return with an announcement: she has chosen a few lucky Golden Rule users to spend an unforgettable weekend at her private estate. But once they arrive, Jewel ingeniously flips the script: the guests are now players in an elaborate estate-wide game. And she’s tailored every challenge and obstacle to test whether they have what it takes to win—at any cost.
Told from the perspective of three dazzling players—Nicole: the new queen of Golden Rule; Luna: Jewel’s biggest fan; and Stella: a brilliant outsider—this novel will charm its way into your heart and keep you guessing how it all ends because money isn’t the only thing at stake.
