Preorder The Existence of Bea Pearl

Preorder your copy of my YA Southern swamp mystery, The Existence of Bea Pearl, from my local indie bookstore, The Haunted Book Shop, and you’re not only supporting a small local business, (which is a super awesome thing to do!) you’ll get my heartfelt thanks: a signed copy of Bea Pearl, a custom bookmark, and a sticker!

Preorder here: Pre-Order The Existence of Bea Pearl | The Haunted Book Shop in Mobile, Alabama (

Prefer to support your own local indie or library? That’s totally cool too.

Screenshot your preorder receipt or library request and email it to for an e-copy of a deleted prequel and a chance to be entered into a grand prize drawing!

The grand prize includes:
a bee and pearl necklace just like the one Bea Pearl wears in the story 
a copy of the OHP anthology, Cabinet of Curiosities, which has a Bea Pearl short story, “The Levee and Bea Pearl”
and a secret surprise by artist Erica Ross (IG @erica_ross_visual_art) that I am soooo excited about!

The preorder campaign is for US only (shipping costs, ugh) but I do want to also thank my international readers, so y’all will be sent the e-copy of the deleted prequel.
