You may have seen this floating around, but here is the cover for Crimson Dawn.
We’re in the process of re-branding my covers and name and this is the start of it – you’ll notice there is a lot more of the girl than in previous covers.
You know what I love most about this cover? It’s the sheep and dog. It’s so true and real. I can tell you that this is a scene we often see in our yards, and the trees and power pole? Well it looks just like my farm.
The clouds are from a photo I took a while ago.
So, do you want to know a bit more about Crimson Dawn? Well, it’s officially in the book shops on the 30th March 2014. You may see it a couple of days early than this.
I’ll be touring NSW and parts of WA during April.
The Blurb? Okay, just for you guys! Here it is:
Laura Murphy will need to call on all her grit and determination to retain her beloved farm… But will her fierce self reliance close her off to the possibility of love?
Since inheriting Nambina, the property that’s been in her family for generations, Laura Murphy has worked wonders. Rather than just focus on farming she has set up a successful school teaching women the basics of managing a property – from fencing and mustering to handling the financial side of the business.
But the notoriously self-reliant Laura is lonely and still scarred by a tragedy from her past. She’s also grappling with the hostility of her nearest neighbour and former best friend, Meghan Hunter. The fact that Laura’s ex-boyfriend Josh is Meghan’s brother only makes things worse.
When a solicitor contacts Laura saying his clients may have a claim over Nambina, her entire world is turned upside down, and she has to call on all her determination to hold on to the property she’s worked so hard to build. In the process she realises she must reach out to friends and loved ones or risk losing everything.
By the bestselling author of Red Dust, this inspirational novel celebrates strength in the face of adversity as well as the enriching power of love.
