The House with Chicken Legs: Proofs!

Today, a parcel arrived from Usborne that looked and smelled DIVINE!


Publicist Fritha Lindqvist and team Usborne created these gorgeous proof packages to go out to a few special people in the publishing world.


Inside a golden delivery box was a beautifully wrapped advance copy of The House with Chicken Legs, with a hand-lettered gold calligraphy label, and a candy cane!

There was also a letter, from me, embellished with pictures from Melissa Castrill√≥n’s exquisite cover art …



… a press release …

… and a mulled wine sachet that made everything smell exceedingly festive!

It is wonderful to know these magical parcels are landing on doorstops, bringing festive cheer and The House with Chicken Legs to readers!



I hope everyone who receives a proof enjoys reading The House with Chicken Legs as much as I enjoyed writing it!
