Children of the Folded Valley cover revealed

Here is the cover for my new book – my first novel for grown-ups – Children of the Folded Valley.

Folded Valley cover

The process of coming up with an appropriate image for this story was tricky for a number of reasons – not the least of which was fear of spoilers. I wanted to avoid a situation akin to the notorious Planet of the Apes DVD, where the famous twist ending was given away by the image on the cover. In the end my designer Charles Bown opted for something minimal and enigmatic. I hope you like it.

Once again, here is the blurb from the back:

“From the author of Uncle Flynn and George goes to Mars

During a journey to visit his estranged sister, James Harper recalls his childhood in a mysterious valley cut off from the outside world, where he grew up as part of a cult called the Folded Valley Fellowship.

In this seemingly idyllic world, the charismatic Benjamin Smiley claimed to be protecting his followers from an impending nuclear apocalypse.

But the valley concealed a terrifying secret.

A secret that would change Smiley’s followers forever.”

Children of the Folded Valley will be released on the 20th of July as a digital download. Print copies will be available at from the 27th of July.
