Today I'm waving my new DREAMWALKS banner created by the multi talented, HOLLY CUPALA!

Holly designed the new banner to celebrate DRAGONSWOOD facing the challenge of putting 4 of my fantasy covers in a small space. She did it beautifully! I'm happy to say Holly's banner will do double duty as my 2012 bookmark so readers will get a chance to have one.

Holly has so many talents, but she's best known for her authentic, hard-hitting YA novels TELL ME A SECRET (Harper Teen 2010)

And DON'T BREATHE A WORD (Harper Teen Jan 3rd 2012)

~Set against the gritty backdrop of Seattle’s streets and a cast of characters with secrets of their own, Holly Cupala’s powerful new novel explores the subtleties of abuse, the meaning of love, and how far a girl will go to discover her own strength.~

Here's what the critics are saying about DON'T BREATHE A WORD.

“The author's considerable narrative gifts will keep readers engaged throughout.”
—Kirkus Reviews

"[A] tense, riveting story.”
—Publisher's Weekly

“This novel recalls Laurie Halse Anderson’s SPEAK.”

I think Holly deserves these roses, don't you?
