‘Silent Night’
by Geraldine Hogan
Cover Reveal

Image feature for the Cover Reveal of the book 'Silent Night' by author Geraldine Hogan

Having recently been involved with the Blog Tour of the latest Faith Hogan woman’s fiction novel, through Aria Fiction; I was surprised to have been contacted initially by Geraldine (Faith) herself, subsequently followed up by her new publisher Bookouture, about a change of direction.

As Geraldine Hogan, Faith is embarking on a new journey and venturing into the world of crime writing and I am delighted to have been invited to share in this, the cover reveal for the first book in ‘The Corbally Series’, featuring Detective Iris Locke.

Being the information junkie that I am, I spent a lovely few minutes discovering the real Corbally, in County Limerick, Ireland.

SILENT NIGHT – (Detective Iris Locke Book #1)

Cover Image of the book 'Silent Night' by author Geraldine HoganA baby is snatched from her pram in the garden. She’s never found. Thirty years later her sister, now a mother herself, is brutally killed.

When Anna Crowe is killed in her sleep alongside her children, the quiet local community of Corbally is shocked. It’s also a chilling reminder of when her sister, Janey, disappeared as a baby, twenty nine years ago, never to be seen again.

Detective Iris Locke is assigned to the case and, after a year undercover which ended in failure when her cover got blown, she’s desperate to make her mark – and to live up to the reputation of her ex-cop father, the former head of the Limerick Murder Squad.

Jack Locke ran the investigation into the disappearance of baby Janey. But by reopening the old case, Iris is also reopening old wounds for the team. Can she untangle the dark secrets that lead to one sister vanishing and the other’s death – even if it means digging into the past of someone very close to her?

I’ve loved writing about Corbally and I’m really excited to share a pretty special bunch of characters with readers very soon.

I can’t remember a time, even as a child, when I haven’t been passionate about books and reading.
I began blogging, when I realised just how many other people out there shared my passion for the written word and I have been continually amazed at the wealth of books that are available and the amount of great new friends I have made, from literally 'The Four Corners Of The World'.

  • A book I’ve seen featured on a few blogs now, it seems to have been largely well accepted.

    A book I’d be sure to pick up if I were to see it, I’m just not convinced its one I’d actually buy.

    • Hi Tracy,

      Yes, the cover reveal was really popular if the social media outlets are anything to go by.

      The storyline definitely appeals to me, but these days I am so inundated with my freebie NetGalley downloads, that I can’t remember the last time I bought a book, so I never have to make those difficult ‘buy, or not buy’ decisions!

      That isn’t good for the booksellers I know, as the popularity of providing complimentary copies to bloggers and reviewers is growing all the time. However I just have to try and close my mind to that and be grateful for the opportunities which arise.

      Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate you taking the time to comment 🙂

    • Hi Kelly,

      Yay! This is one of a few opportunities I have come across in the past few weeks, to get in on a new series right from the beginning – and believe me, I shall be clinging on to them with both hands!!

      I know that coming up with original cover art for a psychological thriller must be quite tricky, and don’t get me wrong, I do like this particular cover – However, I am getting a little bored with the bleak, dark and brooding background images, punctuated by the back view of a single figure dressed in clothes with a splash of intense colour.

      I’m not sure that I could come up with anything better though and the overall image does compliment some of the highly charged and intense storylines I am encountering.

      Thanks for visiting and have a peaceful weekend 🙂
