Cover Reveal

I am very pleased to participate in the cover reveal for Annalisa Crawford's new story collection. I met her through an A to Z Blog Challenge, and have enjoyed her blog. I'm also a fan of her first collection That Sadie Thing and also her book Cat and the Dreamer.
So without further ado..........drum roll please..........
Title: Our Beautiful Child

Author: Annalisa Crawford

Release date: 10th June 2014

Publisher: Battered Suitcase Press 

“The Boathouse collects misfits. Strange solitary creatures that yearn for contact with the outside world, but not too much. They sit, glass in hand, either staring at the table in front of them, or at some distant point on the horizon.”

… so says the narrator of Our Beautiful Child. And he’s been around long enough to know.
People end up in this town almost by accident. Ella is running away from her nightmares, Sally is running away from the memories of previous boyfriends and Rona is running away from university. Each of them seek sanctuary in the 18th century pub, The Boathouse; but in fact, that’s where their troubles begin.
Ella finds love, a moment too late; Rona discovers a beautiful ability which needs refining before she gets hurt; and Sally meets the captivating Murray, who threatens to ruin everything.

Three women. Three stories. One pub.



I live in Cornwall UK, with a good supply of beaches and moorland right on my doorstep to keep me inspired. I live with my husband, two sons, a dog and a cat.
Despite my location, I neither surf nor sail, and have never had any inclination to try. I much prefer walking along a deserted beach and listening to the waves crashing over rocks. For this reason, I really love the beach in the winter!


Thanks Annalisa for letting me in on the sneak peek. All the best to you, and let's support this talented writer.


  1. Thank you so much for posting this today :-)

  2. Lovely cover. I miss walks along the beach and cliffs of Cornwall. Nothing in Texas can compare.
