It's Here! Cover Reveal and Pre-Order Link



And at last I've been given the go-ahead to reveal the cover of my forthcoming novel about the Shelton Laurel Massacre during the Civil War here in western North Carolina. The cover uses a woodcut by the very talented Nancy Darrell of Shelton Laurel (you can find galleries of her work online.) I'm very happy with the way it turned out -- thank you, Nancy, and thanks to Regal House Publishing and Lafayette and Greene for the cover design.


And I received an ARC (advance reading copy) of the book. What fun, after so very long, to hold it in my hands! (And read through it very carefully in search of errors - not so much fun but necessary.) 

But wait, there's more!  Though Crows won't be on sale till October 16, there is now a page for it on the publisher's website where you can pre-order. And on this page is the option to order the standard trade paperback or a hardback special edition-not available anywhere else.

 It would be great if a bunch of folks went ahead and pre-ordered. Of course I hope to be doing events, reading and such here and there after the book is out, but in these uncertain times, I'd love to see my book get some early support. 

You can Pre-order HERE. And you would have my heartfelt gratitude.

Being in another country, I will refrain from pre-ordering, but congratulations.

I can't wait (well, I will of course) to read this, after hearing of all the preparations you've gone through!

Congratulations, Vicki. I will pre-order my copy today. I recognized Nancy Darrell's work. She was the creator of the guineas print you gave us, I just confirmed. I hope the Covid-19 scare is over by the time of the book's release so it won't interfere with your readings. Jim

Big congratulations Vicki! I know that exciting moment of holding the first copy of a printed book in one's hands. The cover is great, simple and eloquent.
Wishing you every success with it!

How exciting! Your book has been a long time coming. Will it be available on Kindle in October?

The Kindle version is available for preorder on Amazon (US) right now. I hope it will be on the UK Amazon.
