I’m thrilled to share the cover for ACCIDENTAL, which follows 16 year old Johanna as she learns and must come to terms with the tragic truth that she shot and killed her own mother when she was 2 years old.

The cover was designed by Danielle Ceccolini and illustrated by Adams Carvalho, and it is SO BEAUTIFUL, RIGHT?! July 2020 still seems very far away, but, until then, I will fall asleep at night dreaming of this gorgeous book cover.

I am thrilled to announce that my YA novel, ACCIDENTAL, will be published by Bloomsbury Kids in spring 2020! (Add it on Goodreads!)

Mary Kate Castellani at Bloomsbury has acquired, at auction, Alex Richards‘s Accidental, about a 16-year-old girl who learns that she shot and killed her own mother with her father’s gun when she was just two years old; now she must choose whether to trust her dad, who has suddenly popped back into her life, or the grandparents who raised her but lied the whole time. Publication is scheduled for spring 2020; Lauren Galit at the LKG Agency did the two-book deal for world rights.
