I’m over the moon about this! I can’t believe that the first book in the Tyme series looks this fantastic. I can’t believe that the fantasy world Ruth and I have been building for so long is going to be public so soon. Just a little over four months until it’s in readers’ hands, where it belongs. My heart is glowing. I’m ecstatic. Here’s what I just posted over on EMU’s Debuts!


I. Love. This. Cover.
Technically, this isn’t a “reveal.” I’ve already posted this sucker all over the place. I couldn’t not. I can’t stop staring at it. It is awesome. It is GREEN. It is VIVID. It’s graphic and bold and fairy-tale gorgeous, and I am forever grateful to artist Iacopo Bruno and to the team at Arthur A. Levine Books and Scholastic for sending GROUNDED out into the world looking this spectacular.
Hilariously, some of my students have asked me if I drew this myself.
Uh, no, kids. No, I did not. But I’m glad you think I’m made of magic. Now go and do your homework, while I sit here and stare at this cover.


  1. Love your cover. Congrats! I’d love to have you do a guest post at Literary Rambles with an ARC or book giveaway when your book releases in April. E-mail me at if you’re interested.

  2. Just fantastic – I love this artist and his work! What a great cover.
