Cover Reveal for ‘Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean’

Last week I was thrilled to receive the cover art and design from IFWG Publishing Australia for my new novel ‘Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean’.

The illustration and design is by talented UK artist Catherine Archer-Wills. It’s quite a nail-biting time waiting for cover art to come through. While you have input in the process, you never know quite what to expect, or how your story is going to be distilled and interpreted into a design that captures the action and essence of your story.  Catherine has done an amazing job, and I literally bounced in my chair when I first saw the artwork!

Below is the front cover, and the wraparound. I love the motion of the waves! What is that menacing creature looming from the depths behind Curtis? You’ll just have to read the story to find out …

So, what’s this junior teen fantasy adventure all about?

In the coastal Queensland town of Midnight Cove, thirteen-year-old Curtis Creed’s world is falling apart.  Once a talented upcoming surfer, he cannot bring himself to return to the ocean.  His inability to overcome his fear earns him the ridicule of his older brother, Dylan. Worse, his family is struggling to cope with the loss of their father in a rock fishing accident.

The summer holiday looks long and lonely for Curtis until he meets Navaya, a mysterious sea dweller he rescues from fishing line in a rock pool.

When Curtis agrees to help Navaya find the Moami, the key to an undersea cavern hiding her people’s most precious secrets, he embarks on a dangerous quest that sees him join forces with awkward but brilliant new girl in town, Morgan.

Will Curtis be able to overcome his fears to return the Moami to its rightful owners before Navaya’s enemies succeed in their deadly mission? Was his father’s death really an accident? And what exactly is the lore of the ocean?

Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean will be released in Australia on 7th June 2018, with US distribution to follow. I hope you have as much fun reading it, as I had writing it.

Once again, a huge thank you to IFWG Publishing Australia for taking on ‘Curtis Creed and the Lore of the Ocean’.

I’ll keep you posted of Book Launch details (Save the date – Saturday, 16th June), so watch this space!

Happy writing, happy reading, and happy days.
