It’s been a long journey, but the best bit about writing The Attic Room was the fact that I could revisit the book locations in my head. I especially enjoyed the Scottish ones – the lovely Isle of Arran on the west coast (that’s it on the left), Edinburgh, where little Nina chased the squirrels in Princes St Gardens (see below) – even the Glasgow hospital where Nina visited Claire.
And now the first stage of the journey’s over. The Attic Room ebook is doing well, and the paperback’s available now too, in your local Amazon store. I have to admit I heaved a huge sigh of relief yesterday, when the paperback came out – after all the editing, formatting, cover-choosing, uploading – I was left with nothing more to do (except marketing and promotion and looking into rights-selling and…) for my new book.
So I started to clear up in my laptop, and found some more images we didn’t include in the three book trailers.
The Cold Cold Sea has the prettiest trailer. It’s easy to find great photos of Cornwall and the sea there.
I’m very fond of the trailer for The Paradise Trees because I made this one all by myself, apart from some help when I couldn’t persuade the credits to roll… Here’s a photo of the Yorkshire Dales, and one of some Yorkshire woodland.
And another of lovely Edinburgh.
So what’s next? Well – I started to organise the cover for book four yesterday. But that’s a story for a wintry day…
Meantime, here’s this week’s photo of our own lovely woods:
