Rosa’s Song

ROSA’S SONG will be released on June 14, 2022 by Random House Studio, a division of Penguin Random House. The book & audiobook are available for pre-order now (see retailer buttons on this page). Enter the pre-order giveaway (details below) for a free Creativity Roadmap – a 10-page roadmap that Helena put together to help you on your own creative journey (there’s a kids’ version, too!).

About the book: ROSA’S SONG is loosely based on Helena’s childhood, when she lived in an apartment building that was a place of transition for many people. Friendships were intense, even if short-lived, and the story is about two kids from very different backgrounds (as well as a parrot named Pollito!). It’s about how a simple act of kindness can be passed along to others. Artist Pascal Campion did a wonderful job of capturing the warmth among the characters.

Watch this short video for more background info!

  • Everyone who pre-orders Rosa’s Song will receive a free 10-page pdf Creativity Roadmap. This roadmap will help you unlock your creativity, and it’s the actual tool that Helena created and used to develop a steady writing practice while juggling her full-time job and other life obligations. If you’d like to also receive the kids’ version, just request it in your email. Send a photo of your pre-order receipt + request for the roadmap(s) to: hkrheeauthor@gmail.com 😊

All pre-order giveaway participants will ALSO be automatically entered for these additional prizes:

  • 3 people will win signed/personalized copies of all 3 of Helena’s books: 1 copy each of The Turtle Ship, The Paper Kingdom and Rosa’s Song, along with postcards and other goodies.
  • 2 people will win a 30-minute Zoom call with Helena. The time can be used to discuss writing, publishing, going over your own manuscript if you’re a writer OR you can even use the time for a free virtual school visit for your kids/grandkids/friends. It’s up to you! And P.S., If you’d rather forego the Zoom session, you can always select signed book copies and goodies instead 😉
