I’m delighted to say that Martha’s Girls has now been published by Blackstaff Press, the leading Northern Ireland publisher.The novel is set in Belfast during the early years of World War II – indeed I’ve always thought that Belfast is as much a character in the book as Martha and her daughters – so it seems particularly appropriate that Blackstaff have decided to publish it.
New publisher- new cover
I love the new image of the book with its soft colours and the striking picture of the girls set against the view up Donegall Place towards the City Hall. The blurb, too, concentrates on the girls and brings to the fore the romantic aspects of the novel.
I’m looking forward to being in Belfast next week to promote the novel and to meet some of the readers who bought the first edition as well as new readers who enjoy family sagas with plenty of romance and drama. If you’re in Belfast on Saturday 19 October I’ll be at Easons in Donegall Place – please come along and say hello.
