Want to know more about this new middle-grade fantasy? Here's a bit from the jacket:

I am a gold lock,
I am a gold key.
However high and low you hunt,
You'll never find me.

Wren Matthews outgrew nursery rhymes a long time ago. Little did she know that songs of twinkling little stars and four-and-twenty blackbirds are the key to the ancient magic of stardust - a magic that only a few people can see and use. And Wren is one of them.

Wren has always preferred to stick to herself. But when she is invited to the faraway fortress where an ancient order has long studied and guarded the stardust, she doesn't hesitate to accept.

Soon Wren is swept up in strange dreams, buried secrets, and rumors that an old enemy is plotting his return. As she tries to master her new abilities, Wren only knows one thing for sure. There's magic in the world - and it's waiting for her.

Thanks for reading, everyone! Happy Autumn! -- Marissa

    1. I also posted about it on Facebook: Sandra K, Stiles and my favorite thing about autumn is the turning of leaves and smell in the air.

  4. So excited for you, Marissa! I know I've seen your cover, but now can I ask if it's Jason Chan? My 10yo will pick up any book with a Jason Chan cover and now I'm a huge fan of his art! This looks great and my daughter and I will both love it.

    1. I adore the cover art, too! The artist is Jakob Eirich, and he is phenomenal! Happily, he's also working on the cover for the sequel. You can see more of his work on his website: http://www.yakonusuke.com/

      I mean look at his Catsaga! Seriously. It's amazing.

Oh, as for the giveaway question, what I love about autumn is the changes of colors of the leaves. I think they look more vibrant and beautiful during autumn!
