“Suspense, an occasional laugh, and many surprises”

coverMy publisher, Hayloft, is expecting the copies of my debut children’s novel, The Keeper of the Stones, from the printer on 23 March. There will be fewer than 500 copies available.

Advance orders are going well and anyone who pre-orders a copy has a chance of winning one of the stunning original inkwash illustrations (see my last post) by the multimedia artist and illustrator, Kelsea Rothaus.

If you’re in Wiltshire, UK, and can get to the Henge Shop at Avebury stone circles on 9 May — I’ll be signing copies from 11:00 am. It would be tremendous to see you!

My heading for this post is taken from a review quote:

“Absolutely gripping! My heart raced as I galloped along with Lizzie, and my brain whirled as I tried to unravel clues to the mysteries. The reading time flew by – as did time itself in this intriguing tale. Suspense, an occasional laugh, and many surprises… All here!” – Martha Kendall, American Library Association Winner of Best Book for Young Adults.

I hope you’ll want to take the ride too.
