GROUND RULES – Cover Release!

 

Here is the final cover for my latest novel GROUND RULES.

An alternative, black & white version was described as ‘rather scary’ and ‘not colourful enough’, so I decided on this one. I hope to get a proof copy of GROUND RULES back to me by the end of January, so hopefully a paperback will be in print (and also a Kindle version) during February.

A big thanks to all those reviewers that said they liked forensic geologist Jessica (Jez) Spargo. Because of you she has a whole novel to herself!

New novel, creating cover…

I have finished my latest novel, “GROUND RULES”

I am now working on the cover design (I have the graphics software, so why not?)

GROUND RULES follows on from “The Man Who Played Trains”, which received amazing 5- and 4-star reviews on Amazon and Goodreads!

I am publishing my novel as a print-on-demand novel from Amazon (also on Kindle).

The main character – protagonist – is Forensic Geologist Jessica Spargo, from “The Man who Played Trains”

Reviewers LOVED her!

So… if you did, then go for it?

Hoping to get GROUND RULES into print (and on Kindle) in January 2020.

Fingers crossed….!

Reading Matters

I have finished reading The Dying Light and started another book. This one isn’t a novel. There was a time when I read almost nothing but technical stuff, mainly geology books and professional papers so I could keep up to date with the science. This book, Death of an Ocean, I am reading for pure pleasure. I was hooked on it as soon as I opened it. The authors have managed to produce a book that is both educational and interesting – no mean feat for a book that deals with the evolution and development of the geology of a large chunk of Britain. I’m almost embarassed to admit that the geology of the Scottish Borders is something I knew very little about. I’m sure that is about to change.

I am also starting John le Carré’s ‘Our Kind of Traitor’. The book has been given mixed reviews but one thing is certain, I am sure to encounter a few words I’ve never come across before.
