A Special Blog For Publication Week

Posted on 24th June, 2017

The Deserter's Daughter's publication day on June 22nd was just wonderful - such a happy and exciting day. I have shared some photos on the Welcome page if you would like to have a quick look, but mainly I'd like to direct you to a blog elsewhere:


To mark the publication of The Deserter's Daughter, I was asked to write a blog post for the Allison & Busby website about setting my story in a real place - Chorlton-cum-Hardy in Manchester.


The link is here:  Setting the story in Chorlton  


I hope you'll take a look. I have included in it a couple of early 20th century photographs of local landmarks that feature in the book.


Many thanks to Catherine, Moira and Jen, who have already visited the blog and left a comment.

Hi, Louise. I'm glad you like the old photos. I think the one of Jackson's Boat is especially atmospheric. Yes, there will be more pictures that I will share here on my website in due course. Thanks for your good wishes and for sharing your thoughts.
I've been to see your blog on your publisher's website - how fascinating. I loved hearing about your father's maps and how they inspired you. And the photographs were very atmospheric. I'm sure they will help readers visualise the story. Have you got more to share?! Best of luck with the book.
