Our Beautiful Child cover reveal

Today I'm helping out Annalisa Crawford with the cover reveal for her upcoming release, Our Beautiful Child. The cover is beautiful, eerie, and mysterious. Congrats, Annalisa!


Title: Our Beautiful Child
Author: Annalisa Crawford
Release date: 10th June 2014
Publisher: Battered Suitcase Press

“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.”
… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long enough to know.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.
Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.
Three women. Three stories. One pub.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
I live in Cornwall UK, with a good supply of beaches and moorland right on my doorstep to keep me inspired. I live with my husband, two sons, a dog and a cat.

Despite my location, I neither surf nor sail, and have never had any inclination to try. I much prefer walking along a deserted beach and listening to the waves crashing over rocks. For this reason, I really love the beach in the winter!

I like the idea of a novella collection! And I'm with you about walking on the beach - I don't need to go into the sea so much as to be near it. :)

For a last-minute gig, you made the rounds pretty well. LOL

She's probably tired of hearing me say it, but, "Love the cover, Annalisa." :D
No. On second thought, she probably isn't. :P

Oh, and Nick... You need to contact me and claim your prize, dude. ;)

Beautiful cover and I love the premise. I also love that Annalisa prefers walking the beach over surfing and sailing. I'm the same way...there just aren't any beaches near us. Just lakes.

Great coverage for this book. Congratulations.

Gina Stoneheart said...

My captivation with the cover and title of this book is further supported by the description of the story. There is something mystifying about the title and yet, seems so mysteriously different from what has been briefly described. Very interesting to say the least. Thanks for sharing=)

Vanessa Morgan said...

Beautiful cover. And I love Annalisa's writing.

debi o'neille said...
