I was lucky enough to be able to have an author event at Bury Libraries (Castle Leisure Centre) two weeks ago. I had spoken to my friend ellepeablog.wordpress.com about an illustrated cover. This is what she came up with as a rough draft. Because of the event, I hurriedly submitted the draft cover so that I had some paperbacks of both books. This limited edition version of Piccalilly: A Remembrance Day Story, is still available from Amazon. The kindle version will be FREE for three days from the 16th of July (tomorrow) and I might just sneak in a competition on my Facebook page @SamanthaHenthornauthor. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01MAYULK1
Piccalilly is a short children’s novel about Lillian, an eight year old girl who is missing her older brother, Joe. He has been serving in the army in World War One. When Lillian’s parents receive a telegram informing them of the worst, Lillian discovers that Joe’s spirit is living on in a series of comforting events.
