Mystical Circles will be published by Luminarie in a new third edition on 31 August.
Instead of the present cover, it will have a new cover created by the designer behind the cover of A Passionate Spirit.
The cover design will be darker and more mysterious than that for edition 2, in keeping with the tone of the story, and will harmonise with A Passionate Spirit.
Both novels share themes of psychological tensions, spiritual threat, religious cults, paranormal, and shape-shifters; and both are set in the same Cotswolds manor house. Although each story can be read and enjoyed as a stand-alone, the second does follow on from the first, and draws through a couple of the characters who appeared before. So to demonstrate more clearly the connection between the two, a thematic relationship will be seen in the two cover designs.
More later when I’ll be able to give the cover reveal!
In addition my book of encouraging tips, insights and reminders for writers, Perilous Path: A Writer’s Journey, will be published in a second edition with Luminarie, on the same date – 31 August 2017.
The new edition of each of the above books will be available as a paperback and as an ebook. Mystical Circles paperback will be priced at £8.99 to bring it into line with A Passionate Spirit, and Perilous Path will be available for £4.99.
Meanwhile I’ve reached 70,581 words in my third novel, Director’s Cut. This will continue the themes of my first two novels, with a strong emphasis on modern Gothic. I know the way the story is to end – but my main antagonist is more frightening, subtle and cunning than those in my first two novels, and the power struggle with the chief protagonist is nearing that ‘black moment’ when it seems all is lost. I still don’t know how she is to survive or to prosper, through the things she will learn from this encounter. Perhaps that’s the best way for it to be, when creating a first draft; to maintain a dynamic relationship with the characters and their inner worlds, there must be a strong element of uncertainty. If the author is to defeat the reader’s expectations, she must first defeat her own!

How exciting that you’re book is going to a third edition print and you’re getting a new cover!
Thank you Jennifer.
You have a lot of wonderful things happening, and I wish you every success with them all 🙂
Thank you Em.
Really like that new cover and love your genre because; um…its very similar to mine 🙂 Cover design is really not my thing so I’m most likely going to have to get one done for me soon. Good luck with the new novel too 🙂
Thank you Gary.
Ooh I do love cover reveals! Good luck with it!
Thank you Ritu. I am quite excited myself, waiting in anticipation to see what the cover designer comes up with. Although I had given ideas for the cover design of “A Passionate Spirit” I was amazed when I first saw it – it was very different to what I’d had in mind yet very effective. It breathes “sinister” “mysterious” “disturbing”. The same designers may be about to spring another big surprise on me with “Mystical Circles” which I hope will make potential readers see the novel in a different light.
I think its always good to get the ideas from others… their interpretations are interesting!!!
Thank you Ritu.
