Look what the O’Brien Press sent me last week! The cover for the Irish edition* of Into The Grey. Squeeee. Isn’t it the business? It’s going to be all shimmery and fog wreathed and special effects-ish apparently. Cannot wait to hold it in my jammy paws.
I’m still fiddling about with edits on this baby, but to celebrate this lovely morsel of cover-nom-noms I thought I’d put up a wee extract. The book has moments from WW1 France (see teeny extract on Goodreads) and also from 1974 Skerries (Ireland). This extract finds us with the 1974 protagonist, Patrick, as he wakes in the middle of the night to find his twin brother Dom missing from their room*. Hope you like it.
BTW, in a twist of international quirkiness, this book will be called Taken Away** in AUS/NZ! Cant wait to see that cover!
*an early edition of this was posted on insideadog in 2009.
** and not Only Living Souls as originally thought!
