OHEMGEE it's finally here for the whole world to see!!! It's the cover reveal for my middle grade debut novel Sir Fig Newton and the Science of Persistence!
Isn't it lovely???
I was completely wowed when I first saw the black-and-white cover sketch right before Thanksgiving 2020. Then when I saw the final color version, I squealed with delight! My heart was filled with so much joy that I couldn't stop smiling and crying (happy tears!).
The amazingly talented artist, Brittney Bond, did an incredible job capturing the main character, twelve-year-old Mira Williams, and her chonky cat, Sir Fig Newton. I love, love, love everything about this cover. From Mira's determined expression, her awesome curls, and the NASA t-shirt to Mr. Chonky's white-tipped tail and lime green eyes. And of course all the purr-fect accents, including the science doodles, the Florida palm tree shadow, and the bike-a-thon flyer.
I cannot wait for biracial Black girls to see themselves on the cover and in this book. I know my inner child is over the moon. I hope you love it as much as I do!
