Cover Reveal!


I’m so delighted to reveal the beautiful cover for my forthcoming novel, The Highland Lass, from Crooked Cat Publishing! The book will be launched on Facebook on March 10th and I expect I’ll have lots going on here on the blog as well that day.

The cover image perfectly encapsulates the feel and setting of the novel, as my heroine, Eilidh, returns to the west coast of Scotland to find the answers to secrets from her past before she can move on with her future.

The story takes the reader on a journey around some of the west coast that I know so well and short chapters go back into the 1780s to trace the story of Highland Mary and Robert Burns. I’ll post the actual blurb nearer the time, once I've got it right.



The above photo is the snowy hills across towards Dunoon and Argyll from the area on this side of the Clyde where I had coffee the other day. These are the hills that Eilidh will be able to see in the novel. No doubt I'll be posting more photos on Pinterest and Facebook over the next month!

What a beautiful cover, Rosemary. I can't wait to read your new book. And Eilidh is such a lovely name. (The Gaelic for Helen :) All the best people are called this!) Best of luck with release!

The cover is wonderful, Rosemary, and the colours used work so well together.

Wonderful views, so thank you for sharing your photos so the rest of us can see them too. :-)
