#CoverReveal An Artisan Lovestyle by Kiltie Jackson @KiltieJackson @rararesources #FictionCafeWriters

An Artisan Lovestyle Cover Reveal

I love a cover reveal but this one is extra exciting because it is the cover of my good friend and fellow Fiction Cafe Writer, Kiltie Jackson’s, new book.

Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in revealing this cover. And here it is:

An Artisan Lovestyle - Hi-res

I’ve heard a bit about the story behind Kiltie’s new book in our writing group and have been lucky enough to have a sneak peek of a few pages. Now I’ve seen the fabulous cover, I’m even more impatient  and to read the whole thing. To whet your appetite too, here is more detail on the book:

Are you ‘living’ your life or just living your life?

Elsa Clairmont was widowed barely five years after marrying her childhood sweetheart. She has struggled to come to terms with the loss and, six years later, has almost ceased to live herself. She does just enough to get by.

Danny Delaney is the ultimate ‘Mr Nice Guy’. He’s kind, caring and sweet. A talented artist in his teens, his abusive mother ruined his career in art and he turned his back on his exceptional gift. Now, he does just enough to get by.

On New Year’s Eve, both Danny and Elsa die in unrelated accidents.

Thanks to some poker playing shenanigans, Elsa’s husband Harry, and Danny’s old Art teacher, William, manage to orchestrate a deal with Death that allows Danny and Elsa to live for one more year on the condition they both agree to complete three tasks.

They have until the last chime of Big Ben on the 31st December to fulfil their quests.

If they succeed, they stay in the world of the living.

If they should fail however…

An Artisan Lovestyle’ is a story of personal growth and self-discovery as two people find themselves forced to make overdue changes in their lives, changes in other people’s lives, and all with the added challenge of finding true love before their time runs out.

Will they do it?

Can they do it?

After all, it’s a matter of Life or Death…

The book will be published on 28 June and is available for pre-order here.

I’m delighted that I will also be participating in the blog tour for this book. Pop back here on 10 July to hear my thoughts.

If having read the above you can’t wait until the end of June, I highly recommend reading Kiltie’s first book A Rock ‘n’ Roll Lovestyle while you wait, it was one of my favourite reads of 2017.

About the Author

Head Shot Piccie

Kiltie grew up in Glasgow in Scotland. This is a very unique city with a very unique way of looking at life.

When she was old enough to do so, she moved to London and then, after several years of obtaining interesting experiences -which are finding their way into her writing – she moved up to the Midlands.

Kiltie currently lives in Staffordshire with five cats and one grumpy husband. Her little home is known as Moggy Towers, even though despite having plenty of moggies, there are no towers! The cats kindly allow her and Mr Mogs to share their house on the condition they keep paying the mortgage!

She loves reading, watching movies, and visiting old castles.
She really dislikes going to the gym!

Her biggest desire is that one day she can give up the day job
and write her stories for a living. Kiltie’s debut novel, ‘A Rock ‘n’ Roll Lovestyle’, was released in September 2017 and won a “Chill With A Book – Reader Award” in December 2017. She first began writing her debut novel eleven years before it was released but shelved it as she didn’t think it was very good.

In November 2016 when, having read more on a best-selling author who had begun her own career as a self-published author, she was inspired to revisit the unfinished manuscript and finally finish what she had started.

Since beginning to write again, the ideas have not stopped flowing. ‘An Artisan Lovestyle’ is the second book in the Lovestyle Series.

Work is due to begin on book three (not yet titled but also part of the Lovestyle Series) in the Summer of 2018.
She currently has a further ten plots and ideas stored in her file (it’s costing a fortune in USB drives as each story has its own memory stick!) and the ideas still keep on coming.

Kiltie now lives her life around the following three quotes:
“I love having weird dreams, they’re great fodder for book plots!”
“Why wait for your ship to come in when you can swim out to meet it?”
“Old enough to know better, young enough not to care!”

#CoverReveal The Cottage on Lily Pond Lane – Part One: New Beginnings @emilyharvale @rararesources

Cottage on Lily Pond Lane Cover Reveal

I am SO excited today to be able to bring your the cover reveal for Part One of Emily Harvale’s fabulous new four-part serial set in the seaside village of Little Pondale. Thank you to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to take part in revealing this cover.

The book will be published on 10 May and is available for pre-order here. Before I let you have a sneak peek at the gorgeous cover, let’s share some details of the story behind it.

“Mia Ward is amazed to be told she has inherited her great-aunt Matilda’s thatched cottage in the tiny seaside village of Little Pondale – especially as Mia didn’t know she had a great-aunt Matilda.

She’s even more astonished to discover she’ll only inherit the place if she actually lives there for one year. Mia’s a city girl at heart, not to mention she’s afraid of water, so the fact the cottage backs on to a sandy beach, is not, in her opinion, a bonus.

But Mia’s struggling to pay her rent since being fired for inappropriate behaviour at the office party, and her boyfriend’s also dumped her. When her best friend, Ella and Ella’s brother, Garrick offer to help her move and settle in, Mia decides to see this as a new beginning. 

It may also be the start of an exciting adventure because now Mia wants to know just who, exactly, was great-aunt Matilda. And she’s determined to find out. But it soon becomes clear that someone is trying to make sure Mia doesn’t stay in Little Pondale….”

Doesn’t that sound intriguing? I’m particularly desperate to know what the ‘inappropriate behaviour’ was that was so bad Mia got fired! I’m going to be reviewing this as part of Emily’s blog tour on the 19th June, so make sure you check in on that date to see what I think of the book.

Now we’ve heard the story behind the cover, but what about the author behind the story?

Having lived and worked in London for several years, Emily returned to her home town of Hastings where she now spends her days writing… and chatting on social media. Emily is a Member of the SoA, a PAN member of the RWA and a Pro Member of ALLi. She’s an Amazon bestseller and a Kindle All Star. Emily loves writing and her stories are sure to bring a smile to your face and a warmth to your heart.
Emily says, “I write about friendship, family and falling in love. I believe in happing endings.” When she isn’t writing, she can be found enjoying the stunning East Sussex coast and countryside, or in a wine bar with friends, discussing life, love and the latest TV shows. Chocolate cake is often eaten. She dislikes housework almost as much as she dislikes anchovies – and will do anything to avoid both.
