Cover Reveal for House of Echoes.

The moment has arrived! With the release of the final book in my Gothic horror novella series, House of Echoes fast approaching, it’s time for the cover reveal.

One of the advantages of being an indie author is to work with a cover designer. I showed her examples of what I was after, drawing inspiration from some books from Darcy Coates (which was well spotted by one newsletter subscriber 😉 ).

I’m well-chuffed with the results. I hope you like the cover of this one, too!

Be careful what you wish for.

 Sixteen-year-old Julia McKenzie craves the approval of her absent father, a widower who has recently remarried. But Julia distrusts her stepmother, who is the cause of so much suffering and local gossip.

Her father’s residence may be the idyllic location to start a new life, but Marsden Hall is far from peaceful.

As the house gives up its ghosts, Julia finds herself confronting restless spirits, including one who wishes to communicate with her…one who is seeking revenge.

Don’t forget, the first two books in the series, The Curse of Marsden Hall, and The Stranger Within are available on Amazon with their gorgeous new covers. 😊

New Covers for the Marsden Hall Series

Recently, I revealed The Witch’s Curse, a short story prequel to my Marsden Hall series. It was the first in the series to receive a spiffy new cover.

So, with a new year, comes a whole new look!

As House of Echoes is the final chapter in the series, it’s a bit of a ‘last hurrah.’ It’s due to be released on 22 February, and I will reveal more details closer to the day.

Meanwhile, the first two books in the series, The Curse of Marsden Hall and The Stranger Within, are both available with their gorgeous new covers.

I’ve spent the past couple of months working with a cover designer to get exactly what I envisioned for all four books in the series, and I’m pleased with the results. I hope you like them, too! 🙂

‘The Curse of Marsden Hall’ is Almost Here!

Here it is everyone! I can finally reveal the cover for my upcoming novella, ‘The Curse of Marsden Hall.’

With this book, I decided to experiment and do something a little bit different. I asked for opinions from some friends on Facebook and was pleased with the feedback I received.

That experiment was putting my other creative side to the test and creating my own cover. As this is the first book in a series (I have two more in the pipeline), I will be creating the covers for those as well. I hope you like it!

Here is the blurb: –

Some things are better left alone.

Australia, 1875.

Successful businessman, Richard Marsden, is going to marry his sweetheart and has built the house of his dreams. Despite the scenic location, Richard’s house in the Wolfrose Mountains sits on land with a chequered past, one full of violence, witchcraft, and murder. He does not believe in curses or superstition.

When something unexpected happens, he wonders if the land he built on is indeed cursed and begins to question his own sanity.

Meanwhile, someone or something is watching… waiting.

‘The Curse of Marsden Hall’ will be released on 21 May. I’ll let you know when it’s ready for pre-order. 🙂
