Cover Reveal!


Cover For My First Book

So, here it is, the gorgeous cover of my soon-to-be-published first book, The Letter - Kitty's Story. It's been designed by the very talented Berni Stevens,( www.bernistevensdesign.comwhose work I have admired for quite some time. I'm absolutely thrilled with it; it captures the essence of the book so well, and I have to say, I cried tears of happiness when I first set eyes on it!

Of course, having such a lovely cover, I had to enlist the services of, the much-in-demand ,Rachel Gilbey over at Rachel's Random Resources (www.rachelsrandomresources.com), and in the blink of an eye, she'd enlisted a whole host of bloggers who were willing to take part in a cover reveal - very humbling for an unknown like me. Thank you to you all.

So, now you've seen the cover, how about a bit of a blurb?

 Here goes:

Thirty-four-year-old Kitty Bennett is trapped in a loveless marriage to criminal barrister, Dan, who’s gradually isolated her from her family and friends. Until the day she (literally) bumps into her first love, the handsome and easy-going Ollie Cartwright – someone she’s done her best to avoid for as long as she can remember. Looking into Ollie’s eyes awakens feelings for him she thought she’d buried deep years ago, and he clearly feels the spark, too. As she walks away, Kitty can’t help but wonder what might have been…

Dan senses that his marriage is on shaky ground and knows he needs to win his wife round. He turns on the charm, skilfully using their two children, Lucas and Lily, as bargaining tools. But Kitty’s older brother, Jimby, and her childhood best-friends, Molly and Violet, have decided enough is enough. For years they’ve had to watch from afar as Kitty’s been browbeaten into an unrecognisable version of herself. They vow to make her see Dan for what he really is, but their attempts are no match for his finely-honed courtroom skills and, against her better judgement, Kitty agrees to give her husband one last chance. But, all-too-soon, a series of heart-breaking events and a shocking secret throw her life into turmoil…

Will she stand by Dan, or will Kitty be brave enough to take the leap and follow her heart to Ollie?

The Letter - Kitty's Story will be published on 29th June, when you'll be able to buy it through Amazon. (Pre-order links coming soon.) It will be available in both ebook and paperback format.
