Here it is – the cover for The Misadventured Summer of Tumbleweed Thompson, a middle grade frontier adventure novel that’s part Tom and Huck, part Homer Price, and hopefully a whole lot of fun! That insanely awesome cover painting is courtesy of Joe Sutphin. If you haven’t already, check out some of the other awesome books he’s illustrated, or follow him on Kickstarter. The equally-insanely talented designer Brannon McAllister pulled the whole thing together, and honestly, I’m gobsmacked by the beauty of it.
I hope really soon to share with you the story of how this cover came together. It’s a great story. But, for now, I hope you’ll enjoy seeing this little taste of the novel you’ll be able to pre-order really soon.
About that – your chance to pre-order The Misadventured Summer of Tumbleweed Thompson begins Tuesday, April 17, when our Kickstarter campaign launches. If you haven’t already, sign up for my newsletter to stay informed on the latest with Tumbleweed!
And here’s a fun video announcing the cover reveal I made last week:
