(Unknown designer)

I thoroughly enjoyed all novels on my 'shortlisted selection' this month, but I've selected Truly are the Free by Jeffrey K Walker as my runner-up because it was a pleasure to read, and enjoy, something different.

And my selected Book of the Month is...
Yes - I'm matching our Cover of the Month: a superb book outside and inside!

  1. Thank you so much Helen, Cathy and Tamian! I'm delighted to see my book cover is a runner up and has gained an honourable mention. What a lovely surprise. Many congratulations to Theresa Tomlinson as a well deserved winner, and to Susan Appleyard as my fellow runner up. Kit Foster will be pleased when I tell him.

    1. The pleasure was ours, Millie! Kit's design for your cover is expertly laid out. Well done!

  2. You are most welcome Millie. Your designer did a great job! It was a tough choice.


Thank you for leaving a comment - I will approve it as soon as possible, but Blogger sometimes chucks its teddies out of the cot and has a tantrum. My apologies if you leave a comment and it does not appear - blame it on Blogger Bloopers. If you are having problems, contact me on author AT helenhollick DOT net and I will post it for you. Sometimes a post will appear as anonymous instead of your name or avatar - I draw attention to this being another Blogger Blooper and NOT of MY doing... That said ...SPAMMERS or distasteful rudeness will be stamped on, squashed, composted and very possibly cursed - if you spam my blog, next time something nasty happens to you just remember that I DID warn you...
