When its author first sees how a forthcoming book will look, there’s a frisson of pleasure.
So I’m very happy to share this preview of the cover of my soon-to-be-released fourth novel, A Thousand Tongues.
The design by Steve Barwick captures the story’s mood well, incorporating a landscape scene that figures importantly in the action. The row of stones, stark, uncanny, tongue-like, has stood in this part of Dartmoor since prehistoric times.
The title? It alludes to a speech by one of Shakespeare’s characters, quoted in an epigraph to the text.
More on this before long, as the release date draws nearer.
