It is with great pleasure, and a lot of excitement, that I can reveal the front cover image of It Never Was You, part two of the Cypress Branches trilogy.
I’m pretty pleased with it. It’s a very powerful image and captures the essence of what It Never Was You is all about – a powerful love story set against the backdrop of post-war Liverpool.
Remember the images this cover has been derived from (click here for the post)? It’s taken a lot of hard work (and steep learning curves!) to turn those images into this cover. Thanks again to our wonderful actors/models, Mark and Geri, the photographer Dewi, stylist Becky, Katie our host for the day, and everyone else who helped with the photo shoot. It was a great day and I hope you agree when I say I think it was well worth the effort.
“Yeah, yeah, but when do we get to read it?!” I hear you all crying. Well, there’s not long to wait now. The book is being proofread at the moment, and the finishing touches will be made to the paperback and the ebook in the coming weeks.
There’s no exact launch date yet, but I’m hoping that advance copies will be available by early February with a full-blown launch in March. I’m doing things a bit differently this time, and I’ll be posting more information about our launch campaign and how to get hold of your copy in the next couple of weeks.
