Julie Musil Cover Release: THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE


Julie Musil has announced the Cover Reveal of her new, upcoming book, THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE, so I just wanted to say Pomaika`i (or good luck in Hawaiian) and share the news with you!


Manny O’Donnell revels in his status at the top of his high school food chain. He and his friends party in the mountains on a blustery night, sharing liquor and lame ghost stories around a campfire. The next morning, as a wild fire rages in those same mountains, Manny experiences doubt. He was the last of the drunken crew to leave the cave, and he’s uncertain if he extinguished the flames. Within hours, he becomes the number one arson suspect.
Santa Ana winds + matches = disaster. You’d think he would've learned that the first time he started a fire.
As he evades a determined arson investigator, Manny, a modern-day Scrooge, is visited by ghosts of the past, present, and future. He’s forced to witness the fate of his inadvertent victims, including Abigail, the scarred beauty who softens his heart. Manny must choose between turning around his callous, self-centered attitude, or protecting his own skin at the expense of anyone who gets in his way.


Find THE BOY WHO LOVED FIRE on Goodreads here!


Julie Musil is a YA author represented by Karen Grencik of Red Fox Literary Agency. She’s the wife to her high school honey, and the mother of three amazing sons.

When she’s not shuttling here boys here, there and everywhere, she’s either tapping away on her keyboard, researching for nonfiction or keeping up with writing tips and markets.
Discover more about Julie at her blog here.


PS... Thanks to everyone who commented on my Friday post (I keep losing my boys) and some of the suggestions re. GPS and/or tracking device implants are worthy of serious consideration. Perhaps in another galaxy, far, far away :)

Thank you! The Scrooge idea happened while I was stuck on a So Cal freeway. Weird how stuff like that happens, right?

I love the way Julie's name is off-kilter - and that cover is really "hot"! Good luck Julie!
