The cover is here - and it is beautiful! I'm grateful to photographer Ali Smith and art director Michael McCartney for making Chantress look so magical.

The ARCs are in as well, and there's a contest at Icey Books where you can win one (ends Sept 8th). Please check out my blog for details if you'd like to enter.

In other news, I've finished the page proofs for the book - the very last chance for me to change anything in the story. It's close and exhasting work, reading line by line, trying to catch mistakes. When I was done, I was ready to sleep for a week.

October 2011

My new book, Chantress, was announced this week by Publishers Weekly children's bookshelf.

"In a pre-empt just before Frankfurt, Karen Wojtyla of Margaret K. McElderry Books bought a YA series by Amy Butler Greenfield called Chantress. The series, set in London in the 1660s, centers on a girl who can sing magic in a world that forbids it; her talent quickly gets her into trouble with an evil Lord Protector. The first book in the trilogy is set for summer 2013. Greenfield is the author of the middle-grade novel Virginia Bound and the nonfiction book A Perfect Red. Julie Just of Janklow & Nesbit Associates negotiated the deal for North American rights."
