The next stand alone novel, That Summer, has a cover!
For some reason, my books never feel quite real to me until I have that cover image.
I’m particularly thrilled about this one since this was a very hard book to cover. The action goes back and forth between 2009 and 1849, between present day and Preraphaelites. How to convey both? It’s hard to find a cover that nods at both the historical and the modern.
In this case, the one constant between the two stories is the house on Herne Hill where all the action takes place. So when the St. Martin’s folks sent me this cover, I was delighted.
That Summer hits the shelves on June 3, 2014.
