I shall be reading from my Arnold Bennett Book Prize winner, Winter Downs, at around 11.20 at:
HARTSHILL MIDSUMMER FAIR on SATURDAY 23 JUNE 2018 (open from 10am to 3pm) at North Staffordshire Medical Institute, Hartshill Road, Hartshill, Stoke on Trent ST4 7NY
Finding a cover for any book is tricky and finding something striking that speaks of the story, without using the usual cliched imagery that date a book so quickly, and is also eye catching is trickier still.
The next book in my WW2 crime series Bunch Courtney Investigates has the working title of In Her Defence. The story is all about perceptions of who and what people were in the turbulent throws of May 1940 when the very real threat of imminent invasion and the instigation if internment prompted deep suspicion of anyone who was not ‘local’ or at least ‘known’ to the population at large. A time when even long standing friendships forged in childhood can and were called into question.
So far the image below is the most serious contender for In Her Defence.
