Spring 2014 Announcement


Johanna Harness’ debut middle grade novel, Spillworthy, about a homeless boy who unites a band of misfit kids to save an abducted girl, has been acquired after tumultuous wrangling with inner demons, by the person who most cares for it, the author.  The book will be released in May.





All this week, I'm writing about the process that led me to the decision to self-publish my debut middle grade novel, Spillworthy. If you'd like a sneak peek at the full cover, opportunities to win advanced reading copies, or if you'd just like the inside scoop about upcoming book-release events, please request admission to the private Spillworthy Facebook group.

  3. Ah: The person who cares for it the most. This makes me let out a long breath ... because isn't it true? We (the authors) love our stories so much. It is so hard to let it sit in the hands of others. I wish you the best.
