My novel is going to be published!
TYING THE DEVIL’S SHOESTRINGS is a middle grade Southern Gothic about twins learning rootwork, protecting themselves from monsters, and finding their place in the world. And it’s full of Gullah-Geechee tradition.
From the official announcement:
Jordan Brown at Walden Pond Press has acquired Tying the Devil’s Shoestrings by Eden Royce, a middle-grade historical Southern Gothic. It tells the story of Jezebel and her twin brother Jay, who begin their lessons in rootwork and must learn to embrace their darkness to keep their family safe as they battle against malevolent spirits and the specter of racism in pre-Civil rights era Charleston, South Carolina.
