The Tiny Ghost Newsletter, edition #4, March 24, 2022
Hi there ghoulish gang!
It's been a busy couple of weeks in the Tiny Ghost office and we're excited to bring you the fantastic fourth edition of our newsletter with all the strange happenings and queer occurrences of the last two weeks.
The big news this week: we've announced another new title coming later in the year. Wicked Little Things is a cross between Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and Mean Girls and from the second I started reading it I knew Tiny Ghost Press had to publish it!
Wicked Little Things is a book about witchcraft, identity, growing pains, friendship, and family. It's a little bit campy horror, a little bit murder mystery, a little bit teen drama, and totally gay. It's fun and scary, romantic and haunting, and a wild exciting ride. It's everything we love here at TGP. Justin Arnold, the author hails from bluegrass Kentucky and is a storyteller, occasional comedian, and junk food connoisseur. We're so pumped to have the opportunity to bring his book into the world and into all of your hot little hands!
Join a coven.
Catch a killer.
Get a makeover...?
When his cousin is murdered, recently outed 16 year old Dane Craven, is forced to return to his unbearably small hometown of Jasper Hollow. It would be easy enough for him to keep his head down if it weren't for three inescapable facts.
One, Dane is a witch with fiery powers he has little ability to control.
Two, Dane thinks he's responsible for the death of his cousin.
And three, he's already been claimed by a coven of fashion forward 'mean girls' desperate to give him a makeover.
Being the gay best friend to a trio of teenage witches wasn't ever high on Dane's list of aspirations, but fortunately for him these girls have the necromantic powers he needs to figure out who killed his cousin. Plus, he could do with some new clothes.
While on the hunt for his cousin's killer Dane discovers life in Jasper Hollow isn't all bad. There's the cute boy who works at the local coffee shop and enjoys long walks in the woods, for one.
But when the rabbit faced killer comes for Dane, he'll be forced to come to terms with who he is and where he belongs, before it's too late for him and everyone in Jasper Hollow.
Wicked Little Things will be released this November and will be going on presale in the next couple of months. Keep your grapes peeled for the cover reveal coming soon!!! In the meantime you can add Wicked Little Things to your Goodreads TBR pile here!
In other news The Alpha's Son hardcover edition is now available for presale and will be released May 3rd. Snap up your copy now!
I'm also excited to bring you a Tiny Ghost newsletter exclusive! The Alpha's Son will soon be available as an audiobook as well! I can't say too much more about that only that we couldn't be happier with how it's shaping up and can't wait for you to hear it. More details on that to follow.
We're gearing up for the grand opening of the Tiny Ghost Shop, our online store in partnership with homeless lgbtq+ youth charity akt, where you'll be able to get some monstrous merch and help support us on our quest to publish more queer young adult books. The shop doors swing open virtually on the 31st of March and we'll be teasing a few of the offerings over on our Insta in the coming days. We'll also be offering some special discounts for our newsletter subscribers so stay tuned.
That's all the Tiny Ghost news for this fortnight. If you're a queer author with a spooky or swoony young adult novel lying around, our submissions are open and we'd love to hear from you. As always keep your grapes peeled for more book news, cover launches, giveaways, and announcements. Stay save wherever you are!
All the best,
