Going rogue...COVER REVEAL! by Cathy Ace

This post will appear on the day I travel to, and arrive in, Florida for Bouchercon 2018, and it’s also the day I am choosing to show off the cover of my forthcoming novel THE WRONG BOY. The book will be released on 9th January 2019 – so if you’re a Brit that’ll be 9.1.19, if you’re in the USA it’ll be 1.9.19, and if you’re in Canada…well, take your pick!

I promise to let you know when it's available for pre-order. It will be published in hardcover, trade paperback, and as an e-book.

The book will soon be available as an ARC, and the cover art is still, therefore, susceptible to detail-changes, though the overall vision will remain. I hope you like the look of it, and that it’ll whet your appetite for what is something of a departure for me. I’ll do my best to respond to comments as I traverse the continent! Here’s the cover blurb:

THE WRONG BOY by Cathy Ace

Perched on a Welsh clifftop, the ancient, picturesque hamlet of Rhosddraig has its peaceful fa├žade ripped apart when human remains are discovered under a pile of stones. The village pub, The Dragon's Head, run by three generations of women, becomes the focal point for those interested in the grisly find, and it’s where layers of deceit are peeled away to expose old secrets, and deep wounds. The police need to establish who died, how, and why, but DI Evan Glover knows he can’t be involved in the investigation, because he's just two days away from retirement. However, as the case develops in unexpected ways, it becomes irrevocably woven into his life, and the lives of local families, leading to disturbing revelations – and deadly consequences ...

(Pronunciation note: Rhosddraig is pronounced: Ross as in the man's name; th as in the; ri as in ride; g as in gag, so ross-th-ri-g = Rhosddraig)

I'd be honoured if you'd consider reading my work - you can find out about it, and me, here:

Have fun at Bouchercon 2018. I love the cover art for the new book. I suddenly feel as though I've told you the picture of your new child is lovely. Heh-heh-heh.

Sorry I didn't respond to any of these lovely, supportive comments - I THOUGHT I had, replying from my phone, while at Bouchercon, but it seems the replies didn't appear here! My apologies...and thanks for the support :-)
