A Cover – and a Publishing Date!

I’m delighted to announce that I have both a cover AND a publication date!

“Heart of Stone” will be published by Crooked Cat, on October 24th.

I’m loving the cover – it’s exactly what I wanted. The figure is one of the main protagonists in the story.

For those who haven’t heard, it’s a historical novel, and is based on my 5-great Grandparents, set in Ireland in the years after 1740.

Cover - Front


The picture is of one of the main protagonists in Heart of Stone. It hangs in Belvedere, one of the main sites used in the book, and very much a real place. Although very striking, there is no photo around of a sufficient density (300 dpi) to allow it to be used for a cover. Luckily, I found a photographer in Mullingar who was delighted to go and take a pic, for a very reasonable sum.

The Managing Board of Belvedere were most welcoming, and happy for me to use the pic, asking only for a mention.
