The Adventures of Tilda Pinkerton ~ Book One

Somewhere out in the Sombrero Galaxy, Tilda Pinkerton–mystical maker of mysterious, magnificent, magical hats–is being hunted by the Keeper of Darkness.

Yet Tilda simply does not recall, at all, after taking a tremendous fall.

No one on Ooleeoo, where Tilda crash-landed, knows she is from another planet. Only Star Jumper Randy can tell her—but he’s light years away, frantically searching for his missing love, desperate that without her, the entire galaxy soon may be lost.

Even in the middle of cosmic danger, Tilda loves to create hats, for which she has a rare and uncanny knack. All who receive them sparkle, in fact—and spark their innermost talent. With a Tilda hat, people can suddenly do whatever they dream of, causing brilliant ideas to grow madly.

With Gladys the toad, who thinks she’s a cat, and Frank the fish, who lives in her hat, Tilda must discover who she is and what her enemy wants from her so badly.

But the Mayor of Moodle has other plans, including a ban on all wearing of hats, everywhere on Ooleeoo. His dark and forbidding actions seem to coincide with something unworldly, threatening all with a nameless dread and slowly blacking out the sky. With Ooleeoo itself turning upside down, how can anyone survive?

In this first in a series of Tilda Pinkerton adventures, Tilda must fight the battle of her life and risk all—even the galaxy and stars—by revealing her most electrifying secret.

The image of Tilda and her animal friends was painted by Shanna Trumbly and the cover was designed by Jennifer Welker.

The big book is coming out first and then the small chapter books follow.

Don’t you just love this cover? I had to share a sneak peek and share it with the YeahWrite readers. I’ve missed you!

This past month I had a death in the family (our sweet adorable perfect dog, Norma) and a wedding (I married my first and last love) so it’s been a busy and very emotional time. And during a tear fest I received the cover of Tilda to review before it went to the next stage. Seeing this was one of the highlights of that week. Okay, I jumped up and down like a five-year-old girl.

Now, I am waiting to hear the date it comes out.  It is set for sometime in September, 2012. I will keep you posted about the date as soon as I find it out myself!

Also, I got a sneak peek at the Tilda website too and it is pretty gosh darn awesome. There are two – one for the big books and a Smart Board Interactive site for teachers and kids centered around the smaller chapter books. Pinch me.

What do you think? Don’t you want a copy? I’m excited and nervous all at the same time to reveal Tilda.
