Cover Reveal – Mina and the Undead by Amy McCaw


And what better way to celebrate than with a spooky cover reveal!!

I can’t tell you how super proud I am to be writing this blog and sharing this amazing cover for my wonderful talented amazing friend’s debut YA novel, Mina and the Undead!

Amy and I became firm friends back around 2015 where we bonded over our love for all things Point Horror (a teenage horror book series from our childhoods) and we have been friends ever since.

I’ve seen Amy go from strength to strength. I’ve watched her grow her novel idea so much, work so hard and I couldn’t be any more proud to call her my friend.

Anyway, enough of my soppy-ness *dries eyes quickly*…

You’re here to see the amazing cover reveal for the deliciously spooky YA, Mina and the Undead published by UClan Publishing on the 1st April 2021.


“Welcome to the Mansion of the Macabre.

Your horror movie tour will start momentarily……”


The Blurb

MINA AND THE UNDEAD is a YA Gothic murder mystery set in 1990s New Orleans

Mina is staying with her sister in New Orleans for Fang Fest 1995. She’s thrilled to land a job in a horror movie mansion, reconnecting with her sister whilst they scare the tourists. When Mina stumbles upon a body at work, she’s dragged into a murder investigation. Someone is replicating New Orleans’ darkest myths, and Mina must discover the truth before she becomes the latest victim.

Her main interests are books, movies and the macabre, and her debut novel has elements of all of these.
