~Shadows in London Temporary Cover~
I made this cover mockup for Goodreads and my CampNANo projects. I thought I would share it with you. I am hoping to be able to get the legal rights to the image so that I can actually use it for the final cover. You can add it as To Read here.
In the wake of the Titanic’s sinking, all of England is in unrest and nothing is as it seems.
Widowed landlady Mrs. Vivian Hobbs, has grown resigned to spending the rest of her life alone. But suddenly she is faced with an alternative she never could have expected.
Officer William Ridley is consumed by his occupation, but when the unstable foundation upon which he has built his life gives way, despair takes hold.
Retired Detective Harlow Doyle can’t seem to stay retired. When he lands in the hospital due to his need to help, he must seek the assistance of his friends to solve a case that grows more dark and ominous as the days pass.
A missing persons case, an uncertain romance, and a dangerous gang draw their lives inexorably together, sweeping them into a sea of uncertainty.
Will the shadows in London engulf them all? Or will the Light of Christ scatter the darkness?
~ A bit about the book~
This book is definitely going to be more intense with lots more going on. The Titanic sank in the spring of 1912, and as a result, historically, London at that time was in an incredibly turbulent time. Conspiracy’s were flying thick and fast, corporate companies were on the edge of either failing or pulling through a second industrial revolution, rumors of war, and the women’s right’s movement was getting an ugly start. The book is set in the early summer of 1912, just a mere two or more months since the Titanic has sunk. As a result, there is a lot of room for things to go wrong with all the confusion and chaos that exists.
The book has plenty of Cyril, Olivia, and Dudley, however it mostly centers around Mrs. Hobbs, Harlow Doyle, and Officer Ridley, whom some may remember from book one. An uncertain romance catches everyone by surprise and drug running is something that both Harlow and Cyril encounter with a vengeance.
I don’t want to share much more due to not spoiling anything, but it is really going to be epic, and I am so excited about it!
~ My progress on the book~
The rough draft is in the works! More than in the works though. I am halfway to two thirds complete with this baby. This book proved to be quite the stubborn writing project as it continued to grow the more I worked on it. As a result, instead of feeling like I was getting closer to finishing it, more things kept popping up that needed to be written about, making this book quite long. I don’t doubt that it will probably be 25K longer than book one, but this story deserves it. My tentative goal (that I’m not holding my breath over because life has been insane lately) is to have the rough draft finished by the end of April. (or somewhere around there) So don’t hold me to that, but that is my hope. There is a huge chunk written though and that encourages me greatly.
Guys. This board is a doozy. I’m quite proud of it actually. It’s pretty spectacular if I do say so myself. I feel instantly inspired when I start scrolling through it. It’s so pretty!
