Count the Shells is out today, and the blog tour starts. Comment at any stop to be in with a chance of a goodie bag, which I will mail to anywhere in the known universe.

First stop is at The Novel Approach, where I discuss how much I love the seaside.

I'm pleased with All About Romance's review of Count the Shells, because they 'got' the hero's nephew Richard, who is integral to the story.

Richard is a precocious boy, but never crosses the line into ‘plot-device moppet’; he’s a charming, inquisitive lad, and it’s clear he adores his uncle and that the feeling is mutual.

I'm very excited about the tour for Count the Shells - looks like an epic one. When it starts to go live, you can comment at any stop to win a bag of goodies. The more times you comment the more chances you have.

That's me grinning from ear to ear!

Cochrane’s ear for historical idioms and sensitivity to the secrecy of gay life in early-20th-century Britain create a powerful impression of accuracy. This deeply felt work is sure to please fans of historical romance.

Read the whole thing at Publisher's Weekly.

You know how you sometimes are blown away by a bit of cover art? That's how I feel about the artwork for Count the Shells, which you can see exclusively today at The Novel Approach.

The mood that cover produces really suits the novel, which has more than a touch of the Gothic.

Popping off my mystery writer hat and bunging on the romance author one - Count the Shells, my historical story in the Porthkennack universe, is available for pre-order with a cracking combo deal. And the cover reveal is tomorrow at The Novel Approach (which I'll link to when I return - no doubt a blubbering wreck - from seeing "Dunkirk".)

Michael Gray returned from World War One injured, but at least he returned. Others were not so fortunate, including his first and greatest love, Thomas Carter-Clemence, with whom Michael had parted bitterly before the conflict began.

Broch, the Carter-Clemence home in Porthkennack, was an integral part of pre-war holidays for the Grays, the two families drawn together in the wake of their sons’ friendship. Returning to the once-beloved Cornish coast for a break with his sister and her family, Michael has to find the courage to face old memories . . . and dare new relationships.

When Thomas’s brother Harry makes an unexpected appearance, Michael is surprised to find himself deeply attracted to Harry for his own sake. But as their relationship heats up, it unearths startling revelations and bitter truths. Michael must decide whether Harry is the answer to his prayers or the last straw to break an old soldier’s back.
