It’s six months until the planned publication of my first novel, The English Monster, in the UK and Commonwealth (that territory is in the parlance of the publishing industry, by the way – I always want to apologise for its vaguely imperial tone).
So it seems a good time to unveil the amazing, amazing cover. There it is, on the right of the page.
It was designed by the masterful Will Webb, and believe me a JPEG on a page can do it little justice. What’s that red face peeping through? Ah, now that would be telling. But it’ll be amazing, believe me. I’ve got the bound proofs downstairs to prove it, and even they are a pale reflection of what it’ll look like. If you want to see a bigger version, and read the blurb, you can do so here.
Still a long, long time to go, of course. But it’s getting closer.
