THE SHAPE OF NIGHT: my new book cover revealed!


I’m always a little anxious when my publisher tells me they have a new cover design to show me.  Will I love it?  Hate it?  I’m not a visual artist so I’m certainly not one to design my own covers, but I do know what I like, and I know if a cover captures the story I’ve written.  I’m delighted to reveal the gorgeous cover for my upcoming novel, THE SHAPE OF NIGHT, which perfectly captures the brooding, spooky plot of this gothic novel.

In SHAPE OF NIGHT, a troubled woman flees Boston and rents a house in Maine.  She soon realizes the house, Brodie’s Watch, is haunted by the strapping sea captain who built it more than a century ago.  Each night, she eagerly awaits Captain Brodie’s visits, but soon she discovers the house’s disturbing history: every woman who’s ever lived in Brodie’s Watch has died there.  And she may be next.

Watch for THE SHAPE OF NIGHT, coming October 1 in the US, and October 3 in the UK.  International release dates to come.
