Jose Leyenda and the Wailing Woman
Biografía del autor
Joe Neman is a high school English teacher and author of the young adult book The Closeted Life of Claude Hartel, now available on Amazon. He’s received the prestigious Fund for Teachers Fellowship, Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program, and the U.S. State Department's Teachers for Global Classrooms fellowship. He loves to read and write, play volleyball, travel, and drink wine. The school he teaches at is 89% Hispanic/Latinx, his husband is Hispanic, and his four foster children are as well, providing much of his inspiration for this book. He's working on Book #2 in the Jose Leyenda Mysteries about the Chupacabra (or “Goat Sucker”).
Descripción del libro
Jose Leyenda is the kind of eleven-year-old who daydreams about Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees when he should be focusing on a soccer game. He tries to be the soccer star his papa wants him to be, but Jose’s true love is American horror. He’d much rather stay up late to the glow of his television, giddy for terror. When Jose witnesses a girl trudging zombie-like into a creek to drown herself, it isn’t a movie—It’s for real! Jose saves her. From a moan echoing in the distance and the girl’s eyes glazed over, Jose concludes that she was possessed, but no one will listen to him, especially his disappointed dad. Jose’s got to do something before another child drowns. What’s haunting his city? Where’s the moan coming from? He enlists the help of his two best friends, the funny, taco-obsessed Lalo and the smart, Mexican music-loving Nancy, and they embark on a thrilling adventure to solve the mystery of La Llorona, a horror legend straight from Mexico. As the mystery reveals a family torn apart by secrets, Jose must save himself and all the children in Milwaukee from the cold, dark clutch of the wailing ghost. Can he resist her possession? Will he listen to his heart and reconcile with his father? Even his favorite American horror films couldn’t prepare him for this!

I'm thinking like an animated cartoon you'd find on Disney or Nickelodeon. Something that shows maybe Jose and his friends searching for the ghost of La Llorona, kind of like Scooby Doo or Goosebumps. Maybe including details and clues from the book might be neat...See synopsis above. Including the Mexican-American culture of the neighborhood in Milwaukee that Jose resides in could be smart...I have thought about trying to sell this to businesses in Milwaukee, so maybe making that clear somehow in the cover could be really awesome. Maybe it should include the Casa de Miedos. Make it mysterious and spooky...It's a horror mystery after all. I really am open to anything and will trust the designer to produce a cover that will capture young people's eyes and make them want to read the book. Something cinematic might be nice too...Something you'd see on the walls of a movie theater. Want a full synopsis? Message me and I can send you one!
Lo que debe evitarse
I don't think a realistic photo-type of image would work for this. As stated, something animated might be more interesting to a middle grade child. No stock imagery perhaps.
