Hey guys! This has been a long time coming. I started this book in 2008. 2008!!!!! That's the year I joined Facebook, for crying out loud. The story went through several versions, countless revisions, and has finally pulled itself together, and now I get to share this amazing cover with you. Isn't it insanely gorgeous????!!!

Like most of my covers, I wasn't sure what to think at first. Me being a Halloween Queen, I probably envisioned the headless horseman with a pumpkin or some such, but it only took like 5 seconds for this interpretation to grow on me, and now I love it. It shows my Latina main character (#WeNeedDiverseBooks), it shows the creepy forest in the background, and the title is nice and BAM!

Here's a description of my modern-day Legend of Sleepy Hollow:

Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.
Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It’s been six years since she chose to live with her father in Miami instead of her eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.
This town will suck you in and not let go.
Sleepy Hollow may be famous for its fabled headless horseman, but the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s family as outsiders. But ghostly voices carry on the wind, whispering that her mother’s death was based on hate…not an accident at all. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must awaken the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.

Unless, of course, the answers find you first.
