I’m thrilled to share the fantastic new cover for my ghost story, Unrest. Periodically, book jackets get a makeover and so, after six years, I feel this book has earned it (even though I loved the original cover). The beautiful design is by James Fraser, and I couldn’t be happier with it. My editor and I have also rewritten the blurb, and given it a new teaser line on the front, both of which I much prefer and think are more immediate to the reader. You’ll also notice that my name appears as M. Harrison rather than Michelle Harrison. This is to set it apart from my other works, as it’s for a slightly older readership of 12+ (and there’s more in this age bracket on the way . . .)

And here’s the back. I’d love to hear your thoughts below! This edition publishes in the UK on October 18th 2018. You can preorder here from the Book Depository, who offer free shipping worldwide.
