Cover Reveal for my baby, Sefton Manor.

A Gothic romance, packing a punch at only 50 pages, out October 25th by Musa Publishing.

Sefton Manor, a country house that has somehow withstood the ravages of time, holds the key to Martha Kendall’s dysfunctional family. Asked by her grandmother to uncover the truth about her missing Aunt, Martha comes to Buckhurst Village. Despite unsettling occurrences upsetting her sensibilities, she starts asking questions.
Questions that lead her to Will Fellowes, a man whose family tended the grounds of Sefton Manor for centuries. Amidst whispers of pacts with the Devil, they pair up to wrestle the secret from the house.
Or will Sefton Manor consume them all? 


I'll freely admit it, I am in love with this cover. It matches the mood and the story so perfectly that I'm sure Musa's illustrator, Kelly Shorten, read the book. I just can't wait until this baby of mine heads out there into the *real* world. 

Next Friday, I'll be revealing the cover of my next Gothic novella, 

Mugs and Monasteries  
orchids, alpacas, lost monasteries. What secret lies here?  

Giving you a chance to win a copy of either book by voting for your favourite. Or if you would like to write a review I can send you a copy--that'd be great. Just let me know in the comments/FB/email :)

Do come back next week. For now though, I'm just going to gaze at that cover. If it were a wine, I think it would be a deep, full bodied red, perhaps a Shiraz or *shivers* a Petite Sirah. 



  1. It's beautiful! So atmospheric and evocative. Congratulations! :-)

  2. Congratulations Cait! It looks good :-)

    1. :) thanks Calum, the secret writer. I could look at it all day!

  3. Congratulations Cait...I love it too! It's a fabulous cover and I can't wait to see the cover for Mugs and Monasteries!

    1. I'm not delusional then, it is nice :). Yay. Thanks for coming by, Christine.
