The Ballerina's Gift Cover Reveal!

Rachelle M. N. Shaw

After several months of hard work, The Ballerina's Gift is one step closer to being finished—which means I finally get to share the cover (and the blurb) with you guys! So here it is, the second installment in The Porcelain Souls series:


Marley Harcove wants nothing more than to inch her way up the social ladder and win over her three-year crush. But when her parents buy the infamously spooky Whitson house, she comes face-to-face with the rumors surrounding it—and one of its previous occupants.

When her rival, Alex Wingate, crashes her party, everything unravels. Marley needs a plan, and fast, especially after whispers of a missing girl spread and an anonymous gift turns up in her bedroom. But those are the least of her concerns. If rumors about the house are true, more than Marley's reputation might be at stake.

I'm also excited to share that The Eyes That Moved, part one of trilogy, is getting a makeover. A second edition will be released in the next couple of weeks with a new cover (see The Porcelain Souls page) and new content. I've taken some of the feedback I've received into consideration for the new edition, and I'm making it perma-free to boot! So get ready...this version is more chilling than ever.
