EEEEEKKKKKKKKK!!!! Exciting times at #AKnightsReads!! Yes I’ve been asked to reveal the cover for a forthcoming historical crime fiction book that is out on 15 November 2018. What’s more, yours truly will be kicking off the blog tour on publication day with my thoughts on this book!
A massive thank you to Emily at The Dome Press for getting in touch and asking me to be involved!! I’m honoured! So without further ado…..
Who is Alis Hawkins?
Alis Hawkins grew up on a dairy farm in Cardiganshire. She left to read English at Oxford and has done various things with her life, including bringing up two amazing sons, selling burgers, working with homeless people and helping families to understand their autistic children. And writing, always.
Radio plays (unloved by anybody but her), nonfiction (autism related), plays (commissioned by heritage projects) and of course, novels.
Her current historical crime series featuring blind investigator Harry Probert-Lloyd and his chippy assistant John Davies, is set in her childhood home, the Teifi Valley. As a side effect, instead of making research trips to sunny climes, like some of her writer friends, she just drives up the M4 to see her folks.
Alis speaks Welsh, collects rucksacks and can’t resist an interesting fact.
West Wales, 1850.
When an old tree root is dug up, the remains of a young woman are found. Harry Probert-Lloyd, a young barrister forced home from London by encroaching blindness, has been dreading this discovery.
He knows exactly whose those bones they are.
Working with his clerk, John Davies, Harry is determined to expose the guilty, but the investigation turns up more questions than answers.
The search for the truth will prove costly. Will Harry and John be the ones to pay the highest price?
So you’ve heard about the author and what the book is about…..are you ready for the cover?? Well are you??
Now doesn’t that look all dark and sinister?! I’d love it if you came back on 15 November and see what I thought of None So Blind.
