Photo Friday: New Covers and Events

It’s all happening. My plan cannot fail – as long as file submissions go through without a hitch and parcels don’t get lost in the mail (my first book had a two week holiday in Hawaii before the post finally decided to move along). Sigh.

I celebrated finishing up my manuscript with sticky bun and tea. Then celebrated again (with my fantastic editor, Sharon) the next day. Chocolate cake, of course!




What is the plan?
In the grand tradition of villian monologues, I shall spill it: the second Journal will be published as two separate eBooks and a paperback (complete)

  • eBook #1: The Adventures of Viola Stewart #3: Three More Short Stories
    published July 
  • eBook #2: The Adventures of Viola Stewart #4: Eye of the Beholder
    to be published late August
  • Eye of the Beholder & Other Tales: The Adventures of Viola Stewart Journal #2
    pre-book launch 11th September,
    official book launch 17/18th September.

And here’s the official cover reveal for Eye of the Beholder eBook (#4) – Mummies. Curses. Madness…?


And the cover for the paperback, Eye of the Beholder & Other Tales: The Adventures of Viola Stewart Journal #2:

There’s also a new event in my calendar: Halloween Comic Con. What better way to celebrate than with Jack the Ripper and cursed mummies?

Photo Friday: Three More Shorts. Viola’s next set of Adventures.

I’ve been writing like the wind this month. I’m at the tail end of rewrites and edits for the next set of The Adventures of Viola Stewart. The eBook, Three More Shorts, will contain adventures five to seven, with shorts from Viola, Henry and Polly’s point of view.

Here’s a preview in words and photographs – from handwritten notes, transcribed to computer, rewritten, edited and formatted ready to go and a reminder of the eBook cover.
