Too Many Magpies cover


Well, here it is : the cover of my novel, Too Many Magpies, due from Salt 1st October. I love it - just the right kind of spookiness and sense of things being scratched/rubbed out and redrawn. Thank you so much, Chris of Salt!

I'm going to do an outrageous copy from Fiona Robyn and offer ten free copies in a draw consisting of the names of those who write a review of my story collection, Balancing on the Edge of the World, and send me a link to it by October 1st. (Doesn't have to be a positive review to qualify!) Anyone who's already reviewed Balancing will be eligible if they email me (via my profile) to say they'd like to be included.

Salt are exceling themselves with the covers - this is just gorgeous!
Looking forward to reading it. I'm dipping in and out of Balancing - I read the heartbreaking one about the compass and torch 2 nights ago. You captured the eagerness of the child so perfectly - it was v moving.
