It’s been over a year since we’ve known we would be working with the amazing author Emmie Mears on their newest book A Hall of Keys and No Doors. And it’s been so hard not to share this news as we’ve been dying to share teaming up with Emmie.
During our latest chat about the project, Emmie shared that Amber Benson was narrating the audiobook. (Yes, the Amber from Buffy the Vampire Slayer not to mention awesome author and producer/director.)
A moment of silence while this sinks into our brains…and now we are about to fall over because we are huge Buffy fans. Not sure if huge is a large enough word of expression…but did we mention we are totally huge fans?
(Thanks, Emmie, for making it even harder not to share… 😉
But, as Tom Petty says, “the waiting is the hardest part” and wait we did.
Until today. Because today the waiting is over. We are pleased to present our cover design for A Hall of Keys and No Doors by the always awesome Emmie Mears.

About the Book
Ella Keyes thought the death of her twin brother Stuart was the last time she’d let life surprise her. She’s up for tenure at her university, she escaped a doomed engagement, and her fluffy cat knows exactly when to expect her home every day. But when her grandmother passes and leaves Ella her house, Ella discovers that the third floor corridor of keys is more than just a family pun. The seemingly-unremarkable keys don’t unlock any doors in the house, but each time Ella touches one, something in her life shifts. Her life’s carefully-grown roots are ripped out of their soil. Flowers bloom in the middle of a Buffalo winter. A blind date with the wrong person ends up being just maybe the right one. Her grandmother’s batty twin sister turns up every day searching for something even she doesn’t know how to identify, and Ella’s parents refuse to return her calls.
Worse, she finds trinkets from Stuart everywhere she goes, ghosts of a game they used to play. The leash she’s kept on life’s surprises for three years has snapped, and Ella will have to learn that the road to peace starts with letting go of control and that sometimes the best family you have is the family you build.
