Cover Reveal & Scavenger Hunt: The Kelpie

thekelpie_front_onlyOne of our own at Annie’s Book Stop of Worcester is revealing her first novel’s cover this week!

This debut novel by T. J. Wooldridge is due out from Spencer Hill Press this December.

I can’t honestly say I was joking when I suggested to my best friend, Joe – Prince Joseph, eldest son of England’s Crown Prince – that we could probably find something the police had missed in regards to the missing children.  After all, eleven and twelve year olds like us did that all the time on the telly and in the books we read…
            When Heather and Joe decide to be Sleuthy MacSleuths on the property abutting the castle Heather’s family lives in, neither expect to discover the real reason children were going missing:
            A Kelpie.  A child-eating faerie horse had moved into the loch “next door.”
            The two barely escape with their lives, but they aren’t safe. Caught in a storm of faerie power, Heather, Joe, and Heather’s whole family are pulled into a maze of talking cats, ghostly secrets, and powerful magick.
            With another child taken, time is running out to make things right.

And to celebrate, there is a Scavenger Hunt taking place across several blogs.  Here is the information:

Each day of the week, search for individual components of the cover–with a bonus piece of art on Wednesday–at these blogs.  Collect the right words per the instructions, and unscramble the line of poetry to be entered to win one of three prizes!

Prize 2

    What do we do with these items we “scavenge”? Like, for example, the tenth word in the first sentence?
