A Little About Your Book In Your Own Words: Plain Kate is a fairy tale book -- by which I mean about a strong girl in a tight spot.  The people of her village think she’s a witch -- a serious thing, because witches are hunted and burned. To escape them, Kate sells the only thing she has that anyone values – her shadow. This, as you might imagine, is a terrible mistake.

Plain Kate came out September 1. You can order it from  Amazon, Book Depo, or Changing Hands.
