As you know, I’m at the proofing stage for my first book, Oak and Mist. I’ve just uploaded the (hopefully) final edit file, and am now waiting with fingers crossed for the go-ahead from CreateSpace.
But in the meantime, I thought I’d share the cover with you all. And here it is :
With thanks to the talents of Rich Jones at Turning Rebellion (who happens to be my brother) – I couldn’t have done this without him. The sword image is my design, and he drew the other elements together to create a cover that I think perfectly captures the feel of the book.
Oak and Mist
The end of everything? Great, no pressure then.’
Alma Bevan didn’t mean to go on a quest.
But when she disappears between two trees at her local park and reappears in the land of Ambeth, she finds they’ve been expecting her.
And now she has to find a lost sword or the consequences for humanity will be dire. With no idea where to look, despite help from her new friend Caleb, things become even more complicated when a handsome prince of the Dark expresses an interest in her.
All this plus homework too?
Travelling between worlds is hard enough without having to manage a suspicious best friend, complicated love interests and concerned parents. Add in some time-twisting, a mysterious bracelet and a group of immortal beings all vying for control of a lost sword, and it’s enough to make any fifteen year old girl want to give up. But then she wouldn’t see Caleb any more. Or Deryck…
Oak and Mist is book one of The Ambeth Chronicles. Available (very) soon through Amazon.
Exciting times, people, exciting times 🙂
