I'm delighted to be able to share the cover of my latest book, The Glorious Dead. It's a really fabulous, eye-catching and thought-provoking design and I'm extremely pleased with the work of the Unbound design team. The book is now fully-funded (of course) but you can still pre-order a copy AND get your name listed in the back as one of the many wonderful supporters.
