Here it is... the cover sketch!

Fanfare of trumpets!

Here it is - the cover sketch for THE LADY SOLDIER:

Well, what'ya think? Both Michelle Styles and I are impressed that our publisher takes historical detail seriously and have got the uniforms right.

Now, the artist will be painting the real cover, so there's a bit more nail-biting until that finally arrives.

    Yes, it's their sketch so I guess they are planning to follow it!

    Kate - looks more like a 'boy soldier' in the vein of Jimmy Olsen, cub reporter, in the old Superman comics.

    That's really cool, Kate!! Wow. You've got a cover!

    Very nice! Can't wait to see the actual cover, good for you.
    Will it only be available in the UK?

    No, worldwide. Ask your bookshop or library to order it in for you! :) (and drop me a line via www.jenniferlindsay.com if you would like us to send you an exclusive signed bookplate!)

    Thanks, Julie
