The Switchgrass Crown
Amanda Innes is the award-winning author of THE GHOSTS OF MARSHLEY PARK. She lives in Livermore, California.
My book is set at a lakeside resort during a summer holiday. 17-year-old Lucas begins to hobnob with a number of wealthy peers, who draw him into their belief that they're all reincarnated Arthurian knights. Part "Great Gatsby" and part "Secret History" with some Arthurian legend thrown in.
Ages 15+; anyone who likes magical realism, coming-of-age stories set during summer vacations; fans of "Merlin"; genderqueer

It all began with a design brief.
A quick, interactive guide helped them understand their design style and captured exactly what they needed in their book cover.
Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
scottpepper collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
When design entries come in, you can rate them so designers know what you’re looking for in your logo design.
99designs has great collaboration tools so you can pinpoint and capture your ideas
And then… they selected a winner!
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
Recently completed contests:
Target Audience Who is going to read this book? What’s your reader’s gender? Readers are most likely male, since the
Therapy service for children up to early adolescence, and their families.
Spiritually curious, fans of essay-style writing (people who like David Sedaris or Ann LeMott).
Sports fans and crime fans. Probably more likely to be younger to middle aged men, but not so many elderly readers.
