Dr Gribbles and the Beast of Blackthorn Lodge cover revealed

Here’s a first look at the cover of my new novel, Dr Gribbles and the Beast of Blackthorn Lodge.

The cover was designed by Charles Bown, who also designed the artwork for my previous books.

Whilst the covers for Uncle Flynn and George goes to Mars were more “adult” covers for books aimed at a younger readership (akin to the “adult” covers you find for some editions of the Harry Potter books), in this case, Charles has designed the cover much more with children in mind.

That said, I would never say Dr Gribbles (or any of my books) are exclusively for children. They are really for anyone who enjoys a thrilling adventure.

Dr Gribbles and the Beast of Blackthorn Lodge will be available in various digital formats from the 30th of March.

Print copies will be available from the 6th of April.

Here is the text from the back of the book as a taster:

A thrilling new tale from the author of Uncle Flynn and George goes to Mars

September 1987.

Curiosity lands Tim Rawling in a world of secrets, spies and a desperate race against time.

The haunted house, the monster and the mad scientist are only the beginning of a terrifying adventure…

    Hello, this looks fab! I know it’s difficult to judge but what age range are we talking here? Roger Ebert, when asked if some film was suitable for children, said “I don’t know, they’re your children”. Something a little more helpful might be nice!

    Broadly speaking, I’d say about ten plus, though maybe slightly younger in some cases.
