The Brides of Rollrock Island (UK) cover

Yes, so I think the title-wrangling is all done with now, and that the selkie novel will be called Sea Hearts in Australia, and The Brides of Rollrock Island in the UK and the US. Here is the British cover, and appropriately bridely it is, no?

Apologies for a slack month's no-blogging. Was I really that busy? Well, there were the two book talks, both of which went off very well. There was the proofreading of Sea Hearts/Brides of Rollrock for both the Australian and the UK editions, which fortunately could be done together with a bit of funnelling of extra corrections either way. I had a noice toime meeting sales people from bookshops with Allen & Unwin a week or so ago, and recording a book trailer. And I worked on the short stories that will come out in February (I hope—I'm still finishing off the last one) from Twelfth Planet Press.

So, yes, there was quite a bit on, when you add day job and beach weekends to that. November looks quieter, except that I'm trying to have a good go at the next novel, the NSW colonial fantasy. So far my hero is dallying in Ireland, waiting for a chance to murder someone so that he can be transported. Move along, man!

I love this cover! I love 'The Selkie and the Fisherman' by Chardi Christian and Freya Blackwood and really felt like it was an adults story in picture book form ~ I'm really looking forward to reading your novel!

Do you have an email to reach them at? There is no way to contact them on their website.

I don't like to give out their email if they don't have it on their website. If you give me your email address, I'll forward it to them—that'll save a bit of back-and-forth.
