THE STRANGER'S GUIDE TO TALLISTON COVER REVEAL, PUBLICATION DATE & A NEW ADVENTURE...

The first months of 2019 have been a whirl of activity as we finalised the manuscript, dustcover, endpapers, foil hardback cover image, internal artwork – and organised The Golden Key To Talliston annual prize draw, Stranger’s Guide tours of the house & gardens, and updated Tarrow.co.uk website with the branded artworks, images and information.

I would personally like to thank the team of editors – Anna Simpson and Ella Chappell, Justine Taylor, Hugh Davies, Hayley Shepherd, Alex Eccles and Sarah Bance – who have honed and crafted the final story into the novel you will soon be reading. That said, I would also like to particularly mention Patrick Knowles who was responsible for the design and illustration of this glorious front cover.

AND INTRODUCING: LETTERS FROM THE LABYRINTH

The Fantasy Mail Adventure

 

As a unique little offshoot, I am launching a companion project – to reintroduce readers to the joy of receiving letters through the post. But these are not just ordinary letters. These are monthly illustrated and personalised correspondence that builds into an epic fantasy adventure story.

It's called Letters from the Labyrinth and we have half the letters created – and now are funding on Kickstarter for the remaining artworks and printing costs.

Hope this is of interest and you’ll help to support and launch this unique new project!

It's the perfect gift for the fantasy reader in your life.

This is an All or Nothing project – and will only be funded if we reach our goal by Monday, May 6 2019 1:01 AM BST.

See more of these beautiful artworks and letters at our Kickstarter project page.
