My artist Owen Claxton has delivered a number of sketches based on a sample of text I gave him from my upcoming novel Anne Droyd and the Ghosts of Winter Hill. The one below is my favourite.
After a few modifications, Owen will create a more detailed picture, and then, after my approval, will paint up the real thing.
The few people who have read Ghosts (at least one other adult and one child) have given very positive feedback. The general vibe is it's the best book of the three. I am really excited!
My business partner Theresa Cutts and I are looking at several options for this one, including a limited edition hardback.
If all goes to plan, Anne Droyd III should be published before December 2012.
