I just finished the last pre-beta reader edit of Nerissa MacKay and the Secrets of the Seventeen Scrolls!
As soon as I can make a decent cover (this is proving difficult; I've taken hundreds of pics, and I'm not happy with any of them), I'll have a proof made up and send it out to beta readers.
Here's the blurb for the back. Comments/constructive criticism would be appreciated:
Just hours after her discovery of an ancestor’s workshop, Nerissa sets the whole town on fire with gossip by using a refurbished automaton to announce some long-hidden secrets during opening weekend for her Auntie Jane’s Haunted Zoo. When the automaton is stolen and the wife of the sheriff might know too much about the crime, Nerissa goes looking for justice on her own.
Keeping her dalliances with witchcraft to herself becomes harder when she must turn herself invisible more often. Does Auntie Jane suspect anything? And just how well can that strangely pale Eric see in the dark?
