Greetings from Singapore. The date is November 1910 and I am taking a break from playing tennis to join the ladies and gentlemen of the Singapore Amateur Dramatic and Music Society in their Christmas production of PIRATES OF PENZANCE. The Victoria Hall is booked... and we have been hard at work rehearsing.
The only reason I got talked into joining the company is because my tennis doubles partner, Griff Maddocks, rather fancies himself as the Pirate King. However I have a small part and it is always interesting to mix with a different crowd... and they are quite different... There are a great deal of undercurrents that I don't really understand yet!
So here is the cover for my third Harriet Gordon Mystery - EVIL IN EMERALD! It will be released on 29 March 2022 (in print, digital and audio) so a little while to wait. BUT the good news is it is available for pre order (click HERE for the links).
A book only starts to feel real when it has a cover (and a title). Fortunately the title EVIL IN EMERALD was set in stone (no pun intended) from the get go but there is that moment of breath holding before the cover concept arrives. I particularly like how the cover artist has incorporated Victoria Hall in the background.
I am loving the gem theme to the books and seeing the three books together... blue, red and now green... really makes it look like a set.
All for now... Best wishes
Harriet (and Alison) xxx
