This is going to be a meandering blog post about the world of Angst. (Hey, world of Angst, I like that.) There is a lot coming together. Before I get distracted with family and holidays, I wanted to take advantage of this brief window to share how everything is progressing.
The rough draft of the fifth Angst book is done and in the hands of my amazing editor, Danielle Fine. While there could be more Angst stories in the distant future, this is both the final book in this series and the definitive end to all Angst stories. I believe this will wrap things up in a way that will give everyone a sense of completion without the Ferris Bueller ending, “You’re still here? It’s over. Go Home.”
As I was sending Angst 5 to my editor, I also received the completed cover by Alessandro Brunelli. I’ll be sharing the cover and title when the book is closer to publication, but needless to say, it’s beautiful. Brunelli is incredibly versatile. His cover for Drowning in Angst is completely different than Clod Makes A Friend. Both are unique and beautiful in their own ways. I love the cover for Angst 5 and I’m dying to share.
