Old Light Cover Reveal - Can You See It?

I have a new novel being published at the end of February. It's called Old Light and it's the second book in the Witchlight series.

In time honoured fashion I shall be sharing a cover reveal, but slowly - very slowly. Think of it as a tasteful striptease. I'm revealing the image, bit by bit, over on my photographic blog, Random Acts of Would-be Photography.

 The second photo of the new book cover is here. Can you see it yet?

Check back here every three days or so for further revelations and more details about Old Light.

Poets for the Planet are proud to present an awareness-raising, fundraising, spirit-raising poetry event in collaboration with the Society of Authors on Saturday 8th February at the SOA offices at 24 Bedford Row, London, WC1R 4EH.

There will be an all-day Poem-a-thon with free entry - drop in for as long or short a time as you like - where sponsored poets, including J.S.Watts, will perform poems themed around climate change. J.S. will be reading at 14.10 (give or take).

The Poem-a-thon will be followed by a ticketed event where the Poet Laureate Simon Armitage will be reading along with Mona Arshi, Jacqueline Saphra and others.
