The Secret Book Title: Revealed!

I wrote it as Brimstone Soup...

















I sold it as A Light That Never Goes Out...
















and it will hit the shelves as...




(YAY! Sound of cheering from the Cupala Camp!)

Here's a blurb about the book:

Debut novelist Holly Cupala’s TELL ME A SECRET chronicles seventeen-year-old Miranda’s unexpected pregnancy and her gripping journey to navigate the labyrinth of her bad-girl sister Xanda’s life, unravel the mystery of her death, and free herself in the process. Recipient of a 2006 SCBWI Work-In-Progress Grant (as Brimstone Soup).

  8. Thank you, everybody!!

    On the cover: not for a few more months, until the publisher finishes the design and rolls it out for their milestones. I saw a first concept, though, and it's incredible! I feel so lucky to be working with such a talented team. I can't wait to see it myself!

  12. SO exciting! And I got to read tiny snippets, everybody. Holly's my little Indian sister so I get my privileges. The bits I read made want to read more, more, more. Congratulations and can't wait to make sure TELL ME A SECRET isn't a secret when it comes out.

  21. Aw - thanks, everyone! I'm just excited and grateful to have a title that we all LOVE. It's kind of amazing, considering all the rejects left in our wake. I had no idea this is a normal process! Luckily my editor is super wonderful and was great to work with through the whole process. I feel very lucky.
