SELFIE SEBASTIAN by Sarah Glenn Marsh: Story Time and Giveaway!

I'm excited to share my very first Author Story Time with Sarah Glenn Marsh. In the video below, Sarah gives a sneak peak of her debut picture book, SELFIE SEBASTIAN, publishing with Sterling tomorrow (March 6th, 2018)! I am also giving away one hardcover copy of the book to one lucky winner! Enter below. 


Sebastian is one handsome fox—and he really, really loves to take selfies. But somehow, no matter how camera-ready he is, his pictures always lack a certain something. And he can’t put his paw on exactly what. So Sebastian sets off on an elaborate quest to take the perfect selfie, dashing from a glamorous red carpet in Hollywood to the vast expanse of the Grand Canyon. He even zooms to the Moon! Still, none of Sebastian’s photos make him happy. Could it be that the secret to his special selfie is right where he started . . . at home, with his friends?




Sarah Glenn Marsh writes young adult novels and children’s picture books. An avid fantasy reader from the day her dad handed her a copy of The Hobbit and promised it would change her life, she’s been making up words and worlds ever since.

When she’s not writing, Sarah enjoys watercolor painting, ghost hunting, and pursuits of the nerd variety, from video games to tabletop adventures. She’s never met an animal or a doughnut she didn’t like.

Sarah lives in Richmond, Virginia with her husband and their tiny zoo of four rescued greyhounds, three birds, and many fish. She is the author of  Fear the Drowning Deep, the Reign of the Fallen duology, and several picture books.

You can pre-order SELFIE SEBASTIAN on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and IndieBound

Cover Reveal: Stef Wade's A PLACE FOR PLUTO illustrated by Melanie Demmer

I am so excited to do Neverending Stories' first ever cover reveal for the wonderful Stef Wade's A PLACE FOR PLUTO illustrated by Melanie Demmer which comes out this August/September with Capstone

Pluto got the shock of his life when he was kicked out of the famous nine. His planet status was stripped away, leaving him lost and confused. Poor Pluto! On his quest to find a place where he belongs, he talks to comets, asteroids, and meteoroids. He doesn’t fit in anywhere! But when Pluto is about to give up, he runs into a dwarf planet and finally finds his place in the solar system. This feel-good picture book combines a popular science topic with character education themes of self discovery, acceptance, and friendship. It has bonus material in the back matter to support curriculum. 

Ok, get ready! The cover is about to be revealed!

Is this not the cutest? I totally want to be Pluto's friend and maybe it's just me but this brings me back to 4th grade when I learned about the planets and Pluto was still a planet. My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas anyone? :)

Melanie Demmer perfectly captured Stef's text. Can't wait to see this on shelves!
