A nature book, but not quite like any you’ll have read before

Villager artwork

Dear 21st-Century Yokel supporters,

Here's a little preview of some of the art that's coming together for my new book, Villager - my first ever novel, which covers almost two centuries of folklore and mystery in the life of a fictional moorland village, and is being published by Unbound in April 2022.

You might remember that my mum, Jo, did the linoprints for Yokel, and she's been hard at work on some more for the chapter headings here. The cover, meanwhile, is the work of Joe McLaren, who also designed the jacket for my book Help The Witch a few years ago.

If you'd like to aid the funding of Villager by reserving a first edition hardback, you can do so here: 


Thanks for reading!
