Christina has a New Cover!

Layout 1Apart from having a book published in the first place, I think my favourite part of the process is watching the cover design take shape and then seeing the final result.  And here it is, the cover for my next book The Silent Touch of Shadows!  I’m really thrilled at how it turned out and absolutely love it!

The Silent Touch of Shadows will be a slight departure from my previous novels, as it’s a time slip story with some paranormal elements.  It’s set partly in the present and partly in 15th century Kent.  The heroine in the present is harassed by a ghostly presence when she moves into an old Kentish manor house.  Being a genealogist, she decides to do some research to solve the mystery and slowly unravels the story of the house’s previous owners and a six hundred year old love story.

It will be published in July and I can’t wait to hold a copy!

  1. Fabulous cover, and I know I’m going to enjoy reading this. I was quite surprised, though, that the book doesn’t have a house on it, since the ghostly presence is partly to do with the house, but despite that it feels right somehow. Roll on July!

  2. I can’t wait to read this. I love time slips!! And the cover is, as always with Choc Lit covers, gawgeous. It’s really atmospheric and I love the font and colours.

  3. Thank you all! Henri, I hope it’s spooky enough without a house :)

    Kath and Maria – I do hope you’ll enjoy the book!

  4. I LOVE your cover, Pia! And I love the title. It’s really atmospheric.

    The story sounds terrific, and a plus point is that it’s set against a 15th century background, which isn’t seen that often in novels.

    I can’t wait to read it.

  7. Oh yes, love it! I was thinking ‘What can it be like?’ ‘How can that title translate into a cover?’ And it di! Great.

  8. Thank you Liz, Fennie and Gill! Yes, I love old houses and almost always have a specific one in mind when I write my stories :) If only they could talk!

  9. Gosh, it’s all been happening whilst I’ve been away! Brilliant cover and I’m really looking forwards to the book! Congratulations!

  10. Thank you, Chris and Sharon! So glad you like the cover and great that you’re a fan of genealogy Sharon, I’m hooked :)
