Hi, YABC! 

I am beyond excited for you to get the first look at the cover for my debut novel, THE PUPPETMASTER'S APPRENTICE. This book is a twisty, gothic fairytale, and the stunning cover design by Laura Benton from the amazing team at Page Street Publishing Co., totally gives you a taste of the magic I hope is evident on every page. This cover is so dark and beautiful; I can't wait for the rare blue moon to draw you all in, just like it has for me. Check out more about THE PUPPETMASTER'S APPRENTICE below and see the magic for yourself!

About the Book
 
    

Pinocchio meets Frankenstein in this dark fairy tale retelling where a young girl is commissioned to build an assassin for a dark-hearted tyrant.

Impressed by the work of the puppetmaster and his apprentice, Tavia’s ruler, The Margrave, has ordered dozens of life-size marionette soldiers to be sent to Wolfspire Hall. When the orders for more soldiers come in with increasingly urgent deadlines, the puppetmaster’s health suffers and Pirouette, his daughter and protégé, is left to build in his stead. But there is something far more twisted brewing at Wolfspire—the Margrave’s son wants Pirouette to create an assassin. And he wants her to give it life.

With Tavia teetering on the brink of war and her father dying in the dungeons, Pirouette has no choice but to accept. Racing against the rise of the next blue moon—the magic that will bring her creations to life—she can't help but wonder, is she making a masterpiece...or a monster?

 


 
 
 
 
 
 
About the Author
 

Thanks to a steady childhood diet of fairytales, Lisa DeSelm still dreams of running away to the woods to live amongst the fairy folk in her own enchanted bower. Until then, she happily lives with her husband and two daughters in the wilds of suburban South Bend, Indiana. When she’s not writing, you’ll find her working as an art director and designer, most likely daydreaming with a cup of tea in hand. The Puppetmaster’s Apprentice is her first novel.
