Cover Reveal: The Whisper by Aaron Starmer

When I originally read The Riverman by Aaron Starmer this year it blew me away. I couldn’t think of anything to really compare it to. Entirely original, wonderful and strange, it has remained quite clear in my memory ever since. Yet I was shocked when I learned that it was just the first in a trilogy. At first I couldn’t reconcile the first book with a second in my brain. Yet as time passed I found myself really and truly wanting to see where it would go. It’s as if my entire interpretation of the first book hinges on the second. Well, I am pleased and honored to present to you today a cover reveal for its sequel.

Ladies and gentlemen . . . The Whisper!

On shelves March 17, 2015.

Many thanks to Mr. Starmer and Macmillan for allowing me to reveal the jacket here today.
