I’ve been busy!
First as you can see, the Charlie won the vote, and thanks to my lovely Beta reader Barbara, I have found a new designer, and she’s a genius – and very patient – which is a given when working with me and my limitations. I gave LWP from www.behance.net/lwpmarshala1e9 a brief synopsis, told her I wanted it to stand apart from the other series and this is the new cover. I love it! And, I’ve seen the one for the next in the series . . .
Who Killed Charlie Birch? Is still with the editor and should be with the proof reader over the weekend. I have tried to put it on pre-order for a 1st March release, but at the moment Amazon have it stuck in one of their ‘machines’, They are looking into it and have promised a response in the next few days, so I will of course keep you updated.
While speaking to LWP, I mentioned that I wanted new covers for the Meredith and Hodge series, as my previous designer had retired, and I had a new book coming out. We had a discussion about the storylines and settings etc., and she was kind enough to send me several mock ups.
This is what we ended up with, and I am absolutely thrilled. Not only have I managed to finish another chapter on the latest M & H I also have the next cover – albeit it hasn’t got a title at the moment. When Amazon have finished their processing, I will be ordering a full set as I can’t wait to see them in the ‘flesh’. I think they’re stunning, what do you think? Those of you who know Bristol will recognise some of these locations. The next story commences with a murder on Christmas Steps – going to be a fabulous cover!
My favourite is The Making of Meredith – that really moody alley is definitely where the young Meredith stopped the attempted rape. Which is yours?
I am shortly going to be doing some promotional discounts just to enable me to show off these covers (again you’ll hear it here first), and will be using Facebook to advertise them. Should one pop up in your feed, I would be forever grateful if you would share it. If we’re not friends on Facebook, or if you would like to follow me, here’s my page address: https://www.facebook.com/mkturnerbooks.
That’s it for now. Once these final blips with Amazon have been ironed out, it will be head down and on with the next M & H.
Stay safe & happy reading,
