What do you tell people about your latest book if you are generally known for writing historical fiction and this book is very different? I tell them it’s Contemporary Urban Fantasy. I’m honestly not sure if that’s even a thing, but this is contemporary, it is urban (very firmly rooted in West London) and it’s fantasy (it’s got vampires).
What you need to know is that it’s a police procedural/vampire mash-up and, because I love tango (and so, it seems, do vampires), it’s got a lot of tango in it.
So here’s the cover. It features Brompton Cemetery, a wonderfully atmospheric 19th century creation near Earl’s Court, and two of my favourite tango dancers, Alexandra Wood and Guillermo Torrens. (You can read more about Alexandra at http://alexandrawoodtango.blogspot.com/.)
Photos are my own. Design is by the very talented Dave Slaney.
