Hi! I'm Francesca Zappia, author of the HarperCollins books Made You Up (http://amzn.to/2j2WAhc) and Eliza and Her Monsters (http://amzn.to/2jsb4nD) and Now Entering Addamsville (https://amzn.to/38aUGC9). 

The main character of Eliza and Her Monsters reads a book series called The Children of Hypnos. Around here, I'll be posting chapters of that series biweekly.

Eliza creates a webcomic called Monstrous Sea. You'll find a teaser of that listed with my works, which includes chapters and character art. If you like it, please let me know! The more support it gets, the more likely it is I'll be able to publish the full story.
