Hi, YABCers!

Today we're excited to celebrate the cover reveal for 

The Dreamcatcher Codes by Barbara Newman,

releasing July 27th, 2021 by Green Writers Press!

 

 

 

 

Before we get to the cover, here's a note from the author:

 

HI  YABC,

Barbara Newman, author of The Dreamcatcher Codes, wanted to tell  you all about the cover for her debut novel, but she got carried away, literally, by cowgirl spirit, her mythic horse,  and the beauty of the desert. Horse and rider flew into the portal of dreams and the mysteries of the natural world; she promises they will return with many secrets. The cover, by book cover design goddess, Asha Hossain, was love at first sight; Asha totally gets eco-fantasy. It was a magical collaboration that continues on the back cover which you won’t see, unless you read this story about four girls, from the four directions, with one purpose. To find out what that is, go to Barbara’s website [barbaranewmanauthor.com], and saddle up for a wildy magical ride.

~Barbara Newman~

About the Book
 
 

FOUR GIRLS. FOUR DIRECTIONS. ONE PURPOSE Powered by the elements earth, air, fire, and water, and secret messages from mystical dreamcatchers, four girls join forces on a quest to recover the stolen piece of the coveted Crystal Horseshoe. Snatched by a giant raven during a raging storm, this sacred talisman holds the Codes of Nature and is the very key to its survival. Maia from the North has been called by Sophia, Guardian of Mother Earth, to find and lead the Crystal Warriors on this daring path into the unknown. Falcon, Ava, and Yue complete the circle of four, and together, bravely face what lies ahead. But time is running out. The bees are dying. The oceans are filled with plastic. Humanity has lost its way. And the girls' search is threatened by shapeshifters in the sky who want the crystal destroyed. Will this fierce cowgirl sisterhood, mythical horses by their side, overcome the destructive forces of greed and heal Mother Earth? Guided by the ancestors, wisdom from river and rock, symbols and stones, and the plant and animal kingdoms, each girl must rely on her own courageous spirit in order to protect the future of the planet she loves. The Dreamcatcher Codes builds cultural bridges, unity, and hope, and illuminates two important issues of our time: climate change and girls claiming their voices and vital place in the world.

She took that can-do spirit and became an award-winning global creative director, leaving an indelible mark on brand culture.
