The new cover features a mysterious, menacing figure (is it William Bury, Daniel Pearce or Tom Conway?) standing in Birmingham’s old Council House Square (now Victoria Square, of course). You can see the Council House to the left, and Christ Church to the right (the old landmark which features heavily in this proto-Ripper tale).
It’s a brilliant cover and is making us all eager to see what Sean will come up with next… BRIGHT STAR RISING is coming soon.
Continuing the Touchstone saga, following on from the mysterious events at the end of Touchstone (6. Fade to Grey) … Kath Bright plunges from the sky onto the Montana plains in 1874, is taken in by Sitting Bull’s tribe and named Bright Star Falling.
Torn between dark dreams of the past and bloody visions of the future, might she be the spirit whose re-appearance spells the end of the Lakota people?
From the Battle of the Little Bighorn to Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, from Wounded Knee to the sidewalks of New York, Bright Star Falling is an epic journey through the West, a sweeping historical fantasy of life on the plains, and one woman’s desperate, bloody struggle to find a way home.
This weekend saw the launch of the latest novel in the Touchstone series. Bright Star Falling picks up Kath Bright’s story following the mysterious events at the end of Touchstone (6. Fade to Grey)…
And it’s a major departure from previous Touchstone stories, all of which have been located in Birmingham, UK. The series so far has pretty much been a whistle stop time travel tour of Birmingham’s history over the last 130 years.
