Mapping the Black Death on Dartmoor

Look at this - it's a work in progress for my novel, Dart, which will be published by Indigo Dreams in October.  My wondrously talented friend, Dru Marland, is in the process of drawing a map to illustrate the journey of the hero, Tobias, across the hills to seek help when plague strikes their part of the moor.  And I'm so excited!  I've always loved books with maps in, and never dreamt I'd have one of my own.  By which I mean one I'd written.  (Pinching myself hard ... )

My only sadness is that printing restrictions and cost might well mean that it will have to be greyscale rather than the glorious colours Dru's chosen, but I shall be buying at least a dozen prints of it for myself and friends and relatives, so will be able to enjoy them on my wall, at least.

REALLY looking forward to October now!
