Today we're super excited to celebrate the cover reveal for OLLIE OXLEY AND THE GHOST: THE SEARCH FOR LOST GOLD by Lisa Schmid, releasing 06/18/2019 from Jolly Fish Press. Before we get to the reveal, here's a message from Lisa: 

Hi Everyone! Thank you, YA Books Central, for introducing OLLIE OXLEY AND THE GHOST: THE SEARCH FOR LOST GOLD to the world!  

Without a doubt, this cover is everything I envisioned and more. I love it!  I am so fortunate in that I get to work with such an ultra-creative team of people at Jolly Fish Press. My editor, Carlisa Cramer, and managing editor, Mari Kesselring worked closely with me throughout the entire design process. They included me in every decision and took into account all my thoughts and ideas.  My illustrator, George Doutsiopoulos captured the essence of my story beautifully. And finally, I have Sarah Taplin to thank for the cover design. It's perfect! 

I hope everyone loves the cover as much as I do. I still get a little teary-eyed whenever I see it. Most importantly, I hope the cover entices you to check out the book this coming June!

--Lisa--

OLLIE OXLEY AND THE GHOST: THE SEARCH FOR LOST GOLD

By: Lisa Schmid

Release: 06/18/19

Publisher: Jolly Fish Press

About the Book

Twelve-year-old Ollie Oxley is moving—again. His mom is starting another new job, this time at the Bingham Theater in Granite City, California. Moving all the time means Ollie has struggled in the making friends department, but he quickly connects with a boy named Teddy. To Ollie's surprise, though, his first friend in town is a little more . . . unique than those he's made in the past. Teddy is a ghost.

Befriending someone who lived during the famous California Gold Rush sure does make things interesting for Ollie. But when the school bully, Aubrey, targets Ollie and it looks like the Bingham Theater might close, the stakes couldn't be higher. Can Teddy and Ollie work together to take down Aubrey, save his mom's job, and solve a mystery years in the making?

About the Author

Lisa Schmid is an author, a stay-at-home mom, and a pug wrangler. When she is not scaring up ghostly adventures, she is most likely scaring up fun with her husband and son. She lives in Folsom, California, home of the 1849 Gold Rush.
