I Spy …

Look what has arrived! I’m thrilled to show you the cover for my Gothic ghost story, THE SILENT COMPANIONS, coming on 5th October 2017 from Bloomsbury.

It was designed by the wonderful David Mann and features silhouettes of key images in the book. I’m particularly glad that Jasper the cat, my favourite character, attained pride of place! Although the story is scary, I didn’t want the cover to be too dark and brooding. I think David’s design strikes just the right balance between interesting and creepy.

Even better, this is actually a ‘double’ cover. The keyhole is cut out in the card, so when you open the book there’s a portrait of my character Hetta looming behind. Watch out ….

If you are super keen, you can pre-order the hardback at Bloomsbury and on Amazon (UK) now. My American readers will have to wait for a slightly later launch date from Viking, and possibly another interesting cover… I will let you know more when I do.
