My Gothic Novel, The Angel of Highgate, gets new cover art and a publication date

I just received the cover art for my Victorian suspense novel, The Angel of Highgate. 
I am really bowled over the artwork created by designer, Julia Lloyd, which perfectly captures the brooding gothic feel of the novel.
Julia read the book for inspiration and came up with this moody and evocative design that features a moonlight scene at Highgate Cemetery with two of the book's main characters. 
Brilliant stuff! The Angel of Highgate will be published on November 3rd, 2015 by Titan Books.

The novel has already garnered terrific reviews from Kirkus and from the Historical Novel Society.

So Red it Bleeds!

My publisher, Titan Books, recently sent me the cover art for the paperback version of The Dead Assassin, Book 2 of The Paranormal Casebooks of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

The design closely follows the cover art Titan created for The Revenant of Thraxton Hall, no doubt to establish a "Brand" identity.

This time around the background is blood red and once again features the real-life silhouettes of Conan Doyle and Oscar Wilde front and centre. Much of the action of The Dead Assassin is set in a fog-bound London as the cover design reflects.

Can't wait for the book to hit the bookshops--scheduled for publication in June, 2015.
