It's here! It's arrived!
Today, I reveal the brand new cover of Winell Road. And I am so excited and hopeful that you will love it as much as I do.
It's been a bumpy road getting Winell Road out there, and, after leaving my publisher - on good terms! - earlier in the year, I made the bold but terrifying decision to self-publish the series. I cannot even describe the anxiety, but I am sure plenty of fellow self-publishers know exactly what I'm talking about.
During its first year out there in the world, book 1 in the series was really well received, particularly by children, and this time around I'm determined to reach new readers and grow a worldwide fan base for Jack and crew, with book 2 set to be released around Christmas time.
A big thank you to the extraordinarily talented illustrator that is Paul Mudie for creating this striking and very fitting picture. On answering a shout out for help on Twitter, I got chatting with Paul, gave him a brief idea of what I was looking for, and voila! This pinged into my inbox! Just amazing, and I am so grateful to him for bringing this scene to life in the way he has. He's perfectly captured the tone of the story.
Then, I called in my gorgeous talented buddy E.L. Wicker to add the finishing design touches to the cover and yep, I was good to go. There is nothing like having a supportive, creative, and inspirational team holding your hand.
So, with no further ado, here it is!
What do you think? I'm in love with it!
And here's the shiny new blurb!
Living on Winell Road is hardly fun, not when your neighbors are weirder than your own parents.
But the road has a secret that few people know.
And Jack’s about to uncover it.
Mystery, action and adventure. This award-winning sci-fi series is “highly recommended” for middle grade readers.
For fans of Men in Black and Zac Power, Winell Road is jam-packed with “loads of twists and turns” that will keep you guessing to the end.
So, that's it! The e-book version is now available to pre-order over on Amazon, just click the link below, and the paperback will follow shortly. Thank you so much for popping by, and do let me know what you think of the cover in the comments. I'm all up for feedback!
